Full description
Shortly after leaving the dock you’ll pass by the Padrão dos Descobrimentos, in the shape of a ship, built for the Portuguese World Exhibition in 1940, and also the Torre de Belém, an iconic monument of Lisbon. Back along the north bank, you’ll have views of historic Lisbon, with the Terreiro do Paço and the Cais do Sodré and also the recently renovated waterfront and see the Museum of Electricity. On the south bank see the forts and prisons that were used during the old regime. You’ll be dazzled by the Ponte 25 de Abril, and have views of the Cristo Rei. Marvel at views of Lisbon you’ll only experience from a boat and make a toast to its famous light. The cruise includes a welcome drink of wine, beer, champagne or juice.

This was an absolutely fabulous experience! I was unsure about a sailboat at first, but we were made to feel incredibly welcome. The river is gorgeous. We saw giant jellyfish swimming by as we cruised. The wine was great. They had blankets to pass out when the sun started going down and it got chilly. All in all, one of our favorite things we did in Lisbon! A great way to top off a day spent in Belem!

Unique experience!!! Yesterday we enjoyed the sailing trip at sunset on the Tagus River. We were 10 people and it was wonderful for everyone. Alex explained to us the main monuments of the city from the boat and kindly answered all our curiosities. We would definitely recommend this activity to anyone traveling to Lisbon. Beautiful the sunset, the views, the feeling of sailing and passing under the 25 de Abril bridge. Thank you very much for your kindness and professional treatment!

Friendly tour guides and kept refilling our drinks. Was great to see the sunset and they took lots of pictures for us. If you are slightly afraid of water/boats maybe be prepared to feel a little scared if it is a windy day! On the return leg of our trip the wind did settle and I enjoyed it more. Bags and valuables can be stored inside the boat and a toilet was also available. Thank for a memorable trip!
