Full description

Discover Lisbon from a boat as you set sail on the Tagus river. See the most famous landmarks of the city and enjoy a relaxing time on the water.

Board your sailboat at the Doca do Bom Sucesso Marina. Sail down the Tagus river and pass by the Monument of Discoveries underneath the 25 de Abril Bridge.

Continue onto the river Tejo and admire Lisbon's many different architectural styles. On the journey back to the marina you’ll pass by the Christ the King statue on the south bank, as well as the Belem Tower monument.

If you’ve selected the sunset option you’ll have the chance to witness the sunset over the Lisbon skyline – a romantic view perfect for couples. You can choose to help the crew sail the boat (no experience necessary), or simply relax on deck.

A peaceful walk with a different view over Lisbon. It's not a big deal, it could be shorter because the second hour turns out to be more monotonous... the sunset is seen from another perspective and becomes fascinating. A pleasant ride, for those who don't know and would like to have the experience of boarding a sailboat, it's worth the experience, without great expectations.

A thoroughly enjoyable later afternoon spent on the water. My two children loved this activity, and really enjoyed interacting with the crew and riding the boom net. The catamaran is big enough that it felt like a private charter - the other groups were able to keep their distance, and weren’t crowded into a small area. We elected to take the 5pm sail, but for a true dusk-evening experience the 7pm sail would have been better (in October). If the going down of the sun is something that you’re wanting to experience, then check the sunset time, and choose between the 5pm and 7pm cruise. Overall, one of the most enjoyable and relaxing activities in Lisbon.

It was so wonderful! We went on a very large, luxurious but non-touristy catamaran! Although several took part, it was totally spread out and it felt very personal! There were even nets in front where you could lie relaxed! We were served very nicely and finally got blankets to cuddle up in! It was simply the best experience in all of Lisbon! I recommend it to everyone! We traveled there by public transport, which also worked great! Thanks again to the crew!!!
