BOAT CRUISE from OLHÃO - Ria Formosa (half day)
Visit the Culatra island, a very old and traditional fishermen community where there are no cars, because the fishermen ride their boats to go fishing.
The island is in the main part of Ria Formosa’s Natural Park.
While you appreciate the spectacular Ria Formosa under the sunny sky, you can observe some fishermen working in the harbor and others sitting in the shadows near the chapel talking with one another. This is a great tradition among the community. You can also admire the wide range of peculiar houses and the school.
Our boat offers good conditions: stability, very comfortable sofas and beverages on board. During the cruise, we pass through another fishermen island still in its natural state, without electricity or fresh water. Then we pass through a secondary channel, where we can watch the birds. The Natural Park is considered an IBA – Important Bird Area for bird watching. Our captain will gladly inform you all about the details.
