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

Took the taxi ferry across to Portimao from Ferragudo, service runs every 10 minutes costing €8 per person return. Good service, only taking around 5 - 10 minutes, recommended.

Staying in Ferragudo we decided on a trip across to Portimao. Clearly we could have taken a traditional taxi take us around the headland but a more scenic option is the water taxi. We booked from our hotel at a cost of €7 each (return)....More
