Health and safety first!

Get ready to rediscover and explore the natural beauty of the Algarve coast. Here you will find everything you need to know before you set off.

Your well-being is our priority, so as we prepare to resume our activities we adopt new measures based on the recommendations of the medical community, the DGS and Turismo de Portugal

A certificate called Clean and Safe was later issued to us by the Portuguese Tourism Office in partnership with health authorities stating that Discover Tours is a business that promotes:

  • Cleanliness;
  • Physical / Social Distance;
  • Reduced Contact.

It may be a bit different from the last time you joined us, but we can find new ways to create unique memories to treasure together.

Reopening our activities

Upon restarting our Catamaran Cruises, Kayak and Grotto Tours, we have taken some enhanced measures:

  • Cleanliness and Sanitization:
    In addition to our usual standards, we have increased cleaning and disinfestation routines. We identified where they should take place, cleaning products and processes to use.
  • Physical / Social Distance:
    To allow compliance with guidelines from health and safety authorities, we have reduced the capacity of our boats. This provides more social distance for everyone; revamped our security; welcome briefings posting, creating informative signs that are clear and easy to follow.
  • Prevention and Support (Health Protection):
    We will keep following the government and the medical community recommendations regarding the prevention, screening measures, and personal protective equipment, mainly face covering. Measures like handwashing stations and the offer of hand sanitizers are already in place.
  • Staff Training:
    We have further enhanced our strong culture of health and safety amongst our staff.

Before you Book

Key things you should know while you plan your activity with us:

  • We recommend presenting a valid electronic ticket at check-in; thus, a physical printed ticket is not required.
  • We encourage no cash payments. Please use our online booking form or our automatic POS machines provided.
  • Some of our activities are temporarily unavailable due to our policy of physical distance and reduced contact.

We will update this page and forward you more information as the season unfolds.
Together we can create great memories. Let’s all help each other staying healthy and safe.
