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 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!!!

Very nice activity that I really recommend. For us it was the first time we sailed on a sailboat and we really enjoyed the experience. In addition, we were lucky that it was a catamaran, so we could move around easily on the boat without disturbing the other passengers. We were 14 people on board, including the 2 skipper who were really very attentive and who were very willing to talk and kindly answer all our neophyte questions. I really recommend this activity, the price of which is really not excessive.

Extraordinary evening with my 11 year old son! Very pleasant flight attendants who don't speak much French, but we were able to mix French, English and Portuguese and we understood each other very well. We were a small friendly group of 6+2. We got a free drink and snacks. My son was even able to hold the tiller a bit. Undoubtedly the best memory of the holidays in Lisbon! Provide a vest for the return.
