Full description
Climb aboard a luxurious yacht for a 1 or 2-hour sailing tour of the coast of Lisbon, departing from the Doca do Bom Sucesso near the historic Belém Tower. Cruise along the tranquil waters of the Tagus River, passing the atmospheric neighborhoods of the city for an appreciation of its maritime and fishing traditions, along with its strategic importance in the defense of Portugal against attack in less peaceful times. Your enthusiastic and experienced skipper will share their knowledge of sailing the Atlantic and Tagus Estuary, as well as provide stories of Lisbon and its surrounding coastline. Your safety is a top priority at all times. Relax on board the stylish boats, which are between 7 and 18 meters long, and feature onboard toilet facilities, a kitchenette, and a CD/MP3/radio audio system to provide the soundtrack to your experience.

Great! Though it was a tiny bit early for sunset (sunset was technically at 7:00pm but the boat ride ended at 7) the views from the boat were gorgeous! We were all offered a free drink and one small cup of crackers, and I got a blanket about halfway through (it was still cold throughout). The boat staff explained some of what we were seeing to us, helped us take photos, and checked in on us periodically but overall let us enjoy on our own. Route goes from Belem to the Lisbon city center (Commerce Square). It's also possible to take a taxi boat back to Commerce Square so keep that in mind as an alternative option to this tour, which ended back in Belem.

An unmissable experience !!! Seeing Lisbon from the waters of the Tagus is magnificent and on board this cruise even more. The trip lasts two hours and you can admire the whole city from the Bélem district to Alfama. On the way back, you touch the opposite coast up to the foot of the statue of Christ the King. The crew makes you feel super pampered. A drink accompanied by appetizers is offered and for the cold wind there are blankets and anoraks available. Setting sail on a sailboat is fascinating and you travel in small groups allowing everyone to enjoy the cruise to the utmost relaxation.

Easily the best thing we done on our holiday as a whole, let alone Lisbon. The views are amazing and it’s all very cosy and romantic. Equally you can get to know other people on board such as the employees who were really lovely and friendly. Our skipper (Diogo) and host (Raquel) were the best. On asking Diogo for a restaurant recommendation he called a friend of his who owns a wine bar and restaurant and got us a table for afterward the boat trip which was so fantastic. 10/10 experience. You get a welcome drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) plus they play music and provide blankets if you get chilly!
