Boat ride to a secluded desert island. Our speed boat driver Guilherme was very friendly and good at his job. The waves were a bit choppy but still Guilherme managed to ride the boat very smoothly to the island. Great experience!

The guided tour on the speed boat was very informative. Ilha Deserta is absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed the boardwalk to the southernmost point of Portugal and had a delicious Algarvian lunch at the Estaminé restaurant.

Animaris Boat Tours is the best option to do one island at a time or to hop in and hop out in the different islands of the Praia Fromosa! I booked one day trip to the different islands and I had a great time embarking with Guilherme our captain! It was a funny and interesting trip as he is quit... More

I did the speedboat trip to Ilha Deserta. Guilherme was a great host on the boat. His english was great and he made everyone comfortable. The island is pristine and even though it was a cloudy day it was nice to take walk and enjoy it.

We took a speedboat to Ilha Deserta and back with the ferry. The kids loved the speedboat and we (the parents) loved the island. It is indeed deserted and has a beautiful scenery and special atmosphere. You can take a long walk along the beach, highly recommended. On the land side there is also a good swimming option but this... More

The island is just breathtaking. It was the highlight of my visit in Faro. And the crew was so friendly and will make sure to give you a safe drive to the island and back. A must if you are visiting Faro.
