Great day trip.
Had a wonderful day with our skipper Louis. Did the 2 stop trip and it was more than enough. Saw the lovely desert island. And then stopped at the island with the lighthouse. Aston the beach. Picked up a tan. Had a walk. Just had a wonderful day. The boat is super comfortable and safe. Everyone wore masks and life jackets. And a very reasonable price.

Boat trip
Nov. 2019 • Couples
We took a boat trip with this company, it was really cheap €15 pp. The boat was spacious and the captin (Pudim) was really friendly and had a good knowledge of the surrounding area. It was an 1 hour and 30 minute tour of the natural park. We stopped at one of the beaching to have a look around and get a drink. Well worth the price.

Still our favourite memory!
Sep. 2018 • Couples
It's already been 2 weeks since we did the tour but it was absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I ended up being the only people on the boat and Nuno did such a great tour with us. We would recommend it to everyone since it's such a good deal and we still enjoy remembering the tour.

Great way to spend a few hours
Nunu was a fantastic guide - wonderful knowledge of the river and nature, as well as all the fishermen met en route. Such an entertaining guide. Great value for money - our 45 min tour lasted well over an hour and Nuno showed us some beautiful places. I would highly recommend this tour.

Great One Hour Tour with Nuno
Apr. 2018 • Family
We had a great tour on the boat just 2 adults and our granddaughter. The tour operator/ticket seller was lovely and Nuno was very informative. Have read other reviews and maybe people should keep in mind that this is a natural area and there can be no guarantee of sightings of various birds etc. it is what it is on the day. We were very happy with the tour and the price.

Very misleading
Oct. 2017 • Friends
We were sadly disappointed with our one hour tour! We were told that we would travel down the channels, learn new things and see some of the birds that are common to this area. This was definitely NOT the case. We were also assured that our one hour tour during low tide was the perfect time to go! Our skipper, while pleasant, did not give us very much information. We saw two lighthouses at the widest opening to the Atlantic. We saw the vacation homes of the local people and found out the waste disposal of that island. Not your most enlightening conversation! I guess the most disappointing thing about this adventure is we had done our homework and read the reviews. The information about this particular tour was misleading and the tour itself highly disappointing.

Mr Franklyn We can not guarantee birds because the walk is done outdoors and the birds belong to nature. However if you read the comments until you can see that there are days we saw a great variety of birds and even Flamingos !!! Regards Cristela Martins
