Experience some of the most dramatic waves of the Atlantic Ocean on an 8-hour tour to Nazaré from Lisbon. Follow in the footsteps of legendary surfers, such as the Hawaiian Garrett McNamara who broke all records by surfing a 78-foot wave in 2012.
What to Expect
Follow in the footsteps of legendary surfers, such as Garrett McNamara, on a full-day private tour dedicated to the big waves of Nazaré.
Following a pick-up from your hotel at 08:30, transfer along the coast by air-conditioned vehicle. The early start ensures enough time to enjoy the program without hurry, and the program can always be changed to best suit your preferences.
Admire the views on the 1.5-hour drive to Nazaré. After a quick tour of the traditional fishing village, go to the wave watching site where the waves can be enjoyed for as long as you wish. Take a break from watching the surfers, and go to Forte S. Miguel Arcanjo, the closest fort to the sea that you can get to without having to suit up and swim.
Pause for lunch in one of the many seafood restaurants, preferably one where McNamara himself always eats. Savor some of the best fish and seafood in the world. After lunch, and depending on the tides, there may be some more time to watch the waves before your return transfer to Lisbon.
Alternatively, take a leisurely drive back along the coast to enjoy some of the best coastal landscapes before the drop off at your hotel at around 18:00.
