From start to finish, this boat trip on the Rio Arade offers the experience to discover the second-largest river in the Algarve. Our crew will meet you on the quay at the Marina of Portimão, at the pier near the ruins of the old Convent of São Francisco. Before we depart, we will briefly explain to you the safety guidelines and guide you on a lifejacket. Now, our 3 and a half hour journey begins, where we will calmly sail across the river, gliding through the water.
This tour goes up the river to the fishing village of Ferragudo, overlooking the Castle of São João does Arade, a medieval fortification built in the 15th century. We will start to ascend the river, passing by the museum of Portimão, a regional heritage museum in an old cannery tracing the area's sardine fishing & canning traditions.
As we sail along the riverside, we can enjoy Portimão's Marina, one of the most attractive parts of town with excellent facilities and host to many international events. Our tour will culminate in the medieval city of Silves, a small but delightful town, once the capital of the Algarve and an important historical trading center.
