Health and Safety

Returning to the charming Algarve

Get ready to rediscover nature and to explore the Algarve coastline.
Here is what you need to know before you go.

Welcoming you back on board

Your well-being is paramount to us and as we prepare for a reopening, we have adopted new measures based on guidelines from health experts, the Portuguese government and the Tourism office.

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 Distance
  • Reduced Contact

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

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 and identified where they should take place, cleaning products and processes to use.
  • Physical Distance
    In order to allow compliance with guidelines from health and safety authorities we have reduced our boats capacity providing more social distance for everyone and revamped our security and welcome briefings posting and creating informative signs as well that are clear and easy to follow.
  • Prevention and Support
    We will keep following the government and the medical community recommendations regarding prevention, screening measures and personal protective equipment mainly face covering. Measures like hand washing 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 and will continue to do so with continuous focus in training and support.

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 for your purchases.
  • Some of our activities maybe 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.
