Enjoy the beautiful views of the lagoons and fauna in the Natural Park with this Ria Formosa Bird Watching activity. You'll see a great variety of native and migratory species.
Ria Formosa Bird Watching
At 2 pm we'll meet at Avenida Dr. César Oliveira, in Fuzeta, where a boat will be waiting for us to enter one of the most protected wetlands in all of Portugal, the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
Once the tide is low, we'll cruise through this natural reserve in search of the different species of birds that live there, both native and migratory.
This area regularly has more than 20,000 water birds, especially during the winter. In just two hours we'll see more than 200 different species, from just a few metres away! During the trip we'll listen to explanations from a marine biologist expert in the area who will help us identify the birds in the Ria Formosa.
This adventure through the natural park will even take us to admire rare species that can only be seen in this part of Portugal, such as the Purple Swamp-hen and the Little Bittern.
The activity will end arriving at the starting point at 4 pm.
