Excellent tour from James who was extremely knowledgeable as well as amusing and flexible. We visited Culatra Island fisherman’s village, Farol lighthouse, and weaved our way through various sandbanks and fish farms to see many feeding seabirds.More

We booked the 3hr trip to Farol and Culatra, including wildlife watching around the Ria Formosa. Our guide, Jaime was excellent, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The guide would quite happily have stayed out for longer but other people on the boat needed to get back.
