Who we are
We are focused on developing nautical activities in Ria Formosa
Located in the center of the Algarve, in close contact with the Ria Formosa, we saw before us a spectacular natural space, unique in the world and often forgotten, with optimal conditions to practice all kinds of water sports, we decided to get down to work. Starting with sailing, we want to facilitate the increase of the number of performers and access to the best places of this magnificent space.
The Ria Formosa is a salt marsh located in the Algarve in Portugal, which extends through the municipalities of Loulé, Faro, Olhão, Tavira and Vila Real de Santo António, covering an area of about 18,400 hectares along 60 kilometers from the river Ancão to To the beach of Manta Rota.
In 1978 it was established with the status of Nature Reserve and at the end of 1987 it became an area protected by the status of Natural Park.
Most of its area corresponds to the lagoon system of the Ria Formosa, composed of a cordon of islands and sandy peninsulas arranged parallel to the coast, protecting a lagoon. This cordon is constituted mainly by the Ancão Peninsula (the “island of Faro”), the islands of Barreta (“Deserta”), Culatra (where is the Lighthouse of Sta Maria), Armona Island, Tavira, Cabanas and Península de Cacela .
The Park is the natural habitat of several rare species, some exclusive, such as the common cayman (symbol of the Park), the flamingo, the round-winged eagle. Another inhabitant of the Park, almost extinct in Europe, is the chameleon. At the level of indigenous flora, the area is also of great interest, especially for the vegetation of the dune and marsh areas.
The Ria also has huge economic importance due to the variety of fish, shellfish and bivalves.
With us you will be inserted deeply inside this ecosistem, while enjoying the pleasure of sailing. If you like, the skipper will teach and mentor you how to perform some of the sailing tasks, so you can feel part of the crew.
The clients have a saying on the itinerary and also the option to stop in some of the barrier islands.
We want to provide clients with new positive experiences, from a perspective of proximity to nature and healthy lifestyle, sensitizing to the preservation of nature. We aim at the comfort of nautical sportsmen and their access to the most pleasant places to practice sports.
We intend to provide a management service for all the logistics involved in the practice of water sports in the Ria Formosa area, offering our clients the accessibility to the Ria locations most appropriate for their sport, in conditions of confort, in order to exceed their expectations . In this way, we will achieve our personal and professional fulfillment, through the full satisfaction of those who come to deprive of this magnificent natural space.
