We're a passionate team that will be delighted to take you aboard on an unforgettable solar boat trip through the Arade River! The company owners are a couple of entrepreneurs, both skippers and with a vast experience in tourism. From our experience and passion for boating, we came up with the idea of creating Algarve SUN BOAT Trips, an environment friendly maritime tourist company, with a fleet of solar boats for tours in the Algarve. Our solar boats provide a very pleasant and relaxing experience, as they’re quiet, sail at a constant speed and don’t cause any damage to the flora and fauna. We contribute to a more ecological form of tourism, reducing pollution in water beds and producing zero carbon emissions. The combustion of a liter of gasoline produces about 2.3 kg of carbon dioxide and a boat consumes an average of 50 liters per 100km. We save every day the atmosphere of 115kg of CO2, which corresponds to a volume of 65m3. By the end of a year, each of our solar boats will reduce atmospheric pollution by more than 30 tons of CO2, with a total volume of 16.400m3, corresponding to 140.000 balloons filled with carbon dioxide. And this is just a boat, isn’t it fantastic?!
