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.

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.

We enjoyed the sailing trip. It was a nice way to spend couple of hours in Lisbon, while hearing about life there and Portugal in general from a wonderful captain. This is a great activity for a family with younger kids who will need a little break from walking and enjoy seeing the town from the river. We would do this again.

Well organised. Meeting point easy to find. Sail along the river, under the bridge and onto central area before turning around as the sun was setting - beautiful. Well informed of the sights you can see as you pass by. Able to steer if desired or just sit back and relax
