Recently went with family from Portimao to Ferragudo for a wander around the beautiful village. It was very reasonable 8 euro or so return and staff were all very helpful. Kids enjoyed the novel water taxi concept.

We used this service on many occasions whilst in this area. Fantastic value for money. Service runs extremely late and always available for pick up any time. Every time the staff were fantastic. Highly recommended.

Taxi via water, not only a taxi trip, it’s quick and offers lovely views. A Smooth ride for those who aren’t too comfortable with water trips. There really is nothing to worry about!

Sorry, we are back home now, but from memory taxi ferry was working Ferragudo / Portimao port / Portimao marina / Praia Grande. Two vessels working on busier days, about every 10 minutes.
