Four of us took a small boat from Ferragudo to Silves. The trip lasted 4 hours and allowed 1.5 hrs in Silves. We timed it to arrive in Silves at lunchtime but trips are tide dependent. Ours was a 6 person boat but bigger boats...More

I think you have confused Ferragudo Boat Trips on the Reis Jorge. Our boat is a traditional converted fishing boat. The reason I believe you are mistaken is that our Silves trip costs 30€. Glad you had above time!

Agree entirely with previous reviews. We took this boat with a family of 5 on the 0900 trip. Its cooler and quieter on the quayside (and easier to park). Luis is a great guide and genuinely interested in the job. He's knowledgeable and speaks good...More

A thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours spent in the company of Luis, a former fisherman born and bred in Ferragudo. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and even let our son "skipper" the boat on the way back. We learned about how the rocks were...More
