Wooden Boat & Kayak Experience

Sports Activities For Kids and Teens For Groups Private Charter Stag & Hen Boat Party Sunset Cruise Family Fun Kayaks Alvor Portimão
The Wooden Boat Experience offers something different. The traditional wooden boat explores the coast and caves, and the kayak tours bring you to discover the stunning beauty of the coast at João d'Arens, between Alvor and Portimão. A unique spot, the water here is incredibly clear and the views are spectacular.

'Frontino' is a traditional wooden Portuguese boat, dating from 1957. Lovingly restored (and with a bar, music system and W.C.), Frontino is ready to take you on relaxing trips along the coast and the gorgeous Ria de Alvor. The skippers know the best spots for photos and views, as well as all the tales about the local area and wildlife. The maximum of Frontino is 16 people plus crew, so you are always sure of individual attention and uncrowded views.

The Wooden Boat Experience, which departs from Alvor, offers two trips:

Boat and Kayak Experience - Discover João d'Arens
Sailing along the Ria de Alvor and out to sea, the boat explores the coastline between Alvor and Portimão. The vast Alvor bay, with the village nestling behind the dunes and long beach, gives way to the spectacular Prainha and João d'Arens area. The ochre cliffs are topped with umbrella pines, and the coastline is dotted with cove beaches and amazing rock formations. The translucent water is inviting, calling you to explore the waterways and channels by kayak, or to cool off with a dip in the ocean. There are walking paths along the clifftops but exploring by kayak is the best way to appreciate the full beauty of this unique and natural spot.
