We're a passionate team that will be delighted to take you aboard on an unforgettable eco friendly electro-solar boat trip!
From our experience and passion for boating, we came up with the idea of creating Algarve SUN BOAT Trips, an environment friendly maritime tourist company, with a fleet of solar boats for tours in the Algarve. We contribute to a more ecological form of tourism, reducing pollution in water beds and producing zero carbon emissions.
By the end of an year, each of our solar boats will reduce atmospheric pollution by more than 30 tons of CO2, with a total volume of 16.400m3, corresponding to 140.000 balloons filled with carbon dioxide. And this is just a boat, isn’t it fantastic?!
THE ARADE RIVER
The waters of the Arade River are full of history since the pre-historic times. The word "Arade" comes from the phoenician, "Arvad", that means "safe haven".
The Arade River had once great importance to connect Silves (the islamic capital of the Algarve between the 8th and 13th centuries) to the sea and it was the stage of many battles.
In the 15th century, after the Christian conquest, it played an active part in the maritime voyages of the portuguese discoveries.
For centuries, the Arade was the scenery of important merchant trades and was sailed by many cultures: Phoenicians, Romans, Vikings, Moors, among others. Ships came to carry minerals, oranges, cork, wood, figs, almonds, carobs, fish, salt, among other riches of the region.
The Arade River area is very rich in history, nature and culture and joining us on a tour is a discover through a forgotten Algarve that will wonder you.
Join us on an incredible solar boat trip and discover the Arade River, where the Past meets the Future!
