Sagres – Algarve
Cape cruiser has existed since 2003 and is the only company based in Sagres to offer a wide range of services through an experienced and dynamic team.
Considering that ornithological tourism is a growing area and once Sagres is an exceptional place for the observation of several migrating birds, this is an interesting activity that should not be missed if you visit us.
We make boat trips, for seabirds watching, in Sagres coast using chum, in order to call a greater number of birds near the boat.
Some of the species you may observe are:
The Northen gannet (Morus bassanus), the Cory´s Shearwater (Calonectris diomedea), the Balearic Shearwater (Puffinus mauretanicus), the Greaat shearwater (Puffinus gravis), the Sooty Shearwater (Puffinus griseus), the European Storn-petrel (Hydrobates pelagicus), Wilson´s Storm Petrel (Oceanites oceanicus), Great Skua (Stercorarius skua), Common Tern (Sterna hirundo) or Sandwich Tern (Sterna sandvicensis). But you can always be surprised by a bird more rare to be observed.
