    Wunderbare Tour durch die Ria Formosa unmittelbar vor Olhão. Beide Teile der Ilha da Culatra, Fahrplan und Culatra selbst sind den Besuch wert, die Strände sind wunderschön. Unser Captain hat mit Leidenschaft Wissenswertes erzählt. Die Tour wurde aufgrund der Witterung verschoben, damit wir das bestmögliche Erlebnis bekommen, unsere Wünsche wurden dabei perfekt berücksichtigt. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder mit Odyssee fahren.
