Tour description provided by Viator

Sail through the Ria Formosa Natural Park on this 4.5-hour (ftom May to September at 9:30 it's 5 hours and a half) sightseeing cruise from Faro. Journey through the Ria Formosa channels on a 12-person catamaran and make stops at the islands of Armona, Culatra, Farol and Deserta. The tour is operated by a multilingual guide.
Choose a morning or afternoon departure time and make your own way to the port to board a modern, 12-person catamaran. Sit back and relax as you sail through the lagoons of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Look out for coastal birds like flamingos, cranes, and egrets, as this portion of the Algarve is an important breeding ground. Explore the remote islands of Armona, Culatra, Farol and Deserta, as the catamaran stops at each one. Enjoy time on the secluded beaches of each island, before hopping back on the catamaran to sail back to the dock where the cruise ends.
