There is a bus available but the best solution is to travel by taxi. Ask to be dropped off at the Ribeira restaurant in Alvor and we are located on the other side of the roundabout next to the walkway to the pontoon.

The boat holds 10 people, so you can have it all on your own if that number is taking the trip.
