Having not gone dolphin watching before, I have nothing to compare with, but I really enjoyed this boat trip. Seth and Sid were professional and helpful and copied with a multilingual body with no problem. The boat was a rib with twin outboards, and you straddle padded benches, so it's easy to keep your balance while taking pictures. We found plenty of dolphins, which leaped around and beside the boat. They are quite hard to photograph as you do not always see them underwater before they break surface, and you find yourself taking many pictures of just water where they just dived back in. A fun challenge. We also saw birds. mainly gannets, graceful in the air and dramatic when they dive. Also skua and some others. We coasted slowly back past the riverside monuments, Belem Tower etc, getting excellent views of them, amidst a local yacht regatta and laser + oppy dinghies. The trip lasted almost 4 hours, and I was a bit cold at the end. I should have put more clothing under my anorak!
The whole experience was perfect. When you book a boat trip online, you never know what you're gona get until you actually see the boat and meet the crew. When I saw our boat, my face opened a giant smile. The boat was incredible, it was beautiful! Next, the crew was amazing. Miguel and Joana were very friendly, fun and competent, and definitely key in making my trip memorable. We saw dolfins swimming along, we had a dreamy sunset and Lisbon was just beautiful as always... I will be annoyingly recommending this tour to all of my friends for the coming months. If you enjoy sailing, the ocean, beautiful scenery, amazing sunset or if you wanna see Lisbon from a different perspective or just enjoy a peaceful time, do try it. Definetly worth it!
The sunset cruise was amazing. Would recommend doing! The guides were super informative and gave us a little history about some monuments we passed. They also gave us great food recommendations! Very nice tour
The trip was very well organised and the crew was amazing. The boat itself was also really nice. We got to lay down in the front. I would recommend to bring a sweather since the wind is strong on the river.
Foi boa a experiência, porém o único problema é o horário de espera nas paradas que poderia ser menos de 1 hora e a sinalização das paradas na Torre de Belém e outras paradas. Do resto muito bom.
