Abrindos horizontes!

Caio é o grande capitão desta experiência. Ele conhece a Ria Formosa como se fosse a mão dele. Descobri o mar com esta experiência, descobri o que significa estar em harmonia com a alma da Ria Formosa e a canoa! Isto é paz! Isto é único… só em Olhão! Só experimentar para conhecer! Só recomeçar porque a magia não cansa!
