What Our Clients Say...
Great trip up the Arade River to Silves
"Really enjoyed this trip from Portimao to Silves on a silent solar powered boat. Good commentary from Pedro punctuated with a lot of humour. Peaceful trip, followed by an hour and a half in Silves to sight see. Fascinated by the storks nesting on top of the many chimneys from Portimao to Silves, very normal in Portugal but interesting to us. Just the right length. Highly recommended."
