Staying outside of Ferragudo we took the small ferry across to the port. We had access to a boat and JetSki there and landed directly in the marina. A short walk to the restaurants around the marina too. 7 euro return

Arrived at Portimao Marina to catch the taxi ferry to Ferragudo You pay at the Marina shop and walk to the quayside to catch the ferry. Only takes approx 8/10 mins to get there. Very friendly ferry driver. Lovely place to look round... Few shops.....More

We were staying at Portimao and used the taxi to take us to Ferragudo. The staff are very friendly and the boat is clean and comfortable. Takes 10mins and runs all day and well into the evening. A lovely way to get across the water.

Always on time! You can pre-book your pick-up time from your vessel and be dropped off at a time you prefer to go back and at the end of the evening. Friendly taxi "drivers" and a very very useful service indeed
