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.

It was wonderful specially the staff Sara and Rui. They were so courteous. We had a 2 yr old and a 10 yr old. The boat was nice not too big nor small. Not too many people and we were lucky to get good weather. I will definitely repeat it anytime soon.

This was a very enjoyable sailing tour on a catamaran. The crew was nice and friendly and we had excellent views of the Belem Tower, Monument of the Discoveries and Lisbon. As this was the short (1 hour) tour, we sailed past the bridge toward Lisbon and then quickly turned back, but it was an hour very well spent and very enjoyable. We were with kids (aged 8 & 10) and had no issues. Perhaps it was better that we took the short tour considering that the kids had no time to get bored! We were lucky with the weather too, which helped make this an excellent experience. I would highly recommend.

I would recommend this tour. The crew, Jao and Bruno were exceptional. They were very hospitable and knowledgeable- just as we had come to expect of the wonderful people of Portugal. The sail boat was comfortable and Jao was very accommodating for picture taking. I can’t say enough good about them. I booked this tour because of the reviews so you won’t be disappointed if you choose this one.
