Walked in to Portimao but rang for the water taxi to take us back to Ferragudo. Arrived within minutes - very comfortable and a lovely way to travel. Definitely recommend.

Extremely good and efficient ferry service to other parts of Portimao. Well recommended. Good idea to take a ferry early evening to the other side, take an evening walk and aperitif before returning for dinner in Ferragudo before returning

Used the water taxi to travel between Praia da Rocha and Ferragudo. The service was excellent and trip really pleasant. We wanted to come back slightly earlier than we orginally booked and it wasn't a problem to change the time. Would recommend using the service.

This water taxi is perfect for going from Ferragudo to other areas such as Portimao! It is cheap and fast. A good way to see this beautiful place from the water

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.
