Taxi via water, not only a taxi trip, it’s quick and offers lovely views. A Smooth ride for those who aren’t too comfortable with water trips. There really is nothing to worry about!

A great way to get a boat ride and get to your destination. 7 Euros, per person,for return journey. You can go from Ferragudo to Portimao and over to the beach at Praia de Grande. Lovely comfy leather seats too!

The guy that steers this taxi is hilarious. We even got given blankets for the way back because it was so cold.

Sorry, we are back home now, but from memory taxi ferry was working Ferragudo / Portimao port / Portimao marina / Praia Grande. Two vessels working on busier days, about every 10 minutes.
