A small group Lisbon boat tour adventure gathering sailing, swimming, and eating in one only experience!

Discover the city from the water while connecting with amazing locals through delicious food on our Lisbon sailing tour

Our boat trip casts off near Belém Tower (in Doca do Espanhol), a privileged area to explore some of the most famous historical monuments from the calm of the Tagus River. It’s an opportunity to learn about history and Portuguese curiosities, to cruise and relax, all while eating and drinking off an exclusive menu made of one-of-a-kind tastings.

We immerse ourselves into the old part of Lisbon, namely Terreiro do Paço and Alfama. Learn how Lisbon’s port and margins evolved along the centuries, see the old fish markets, the places where Romans produced a fish sauce called garum, and learn about the richness of Tagus river and how it all shaped cultures, battles, empires, and the cosmopolitan Lisbon of today.

a group on our sailboatAlong our way, the 7 hills of Lisbon will become clearer in a continuous silhouette against the sky: See Graça, Saint Jorge Castle and some of the best lookout points that this city has to offer, like the miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara and Adamastor. 

With Lisbon as a backdrop and a welcoming Port cocktail in your hand, we begin to explore Portuguese cuisine and wine.

Our Lisbon sailboat tour then changes direction, and you’ll be amazed by the diversity of the landscape. On the opposite margin, you can see the old stores where Port wine and dried codfish were kept, the Cristo Rei statue, plus lots of street art and secret restaurants to make plans for.

If the weather allows, we then search for a quiet place to anchor, to have a swim, and to gather ourselves around the table tasting a unique dish created by our chef exclusively for this trip with a unique fresh Portuguese white wine!

While eating, drinking and learning about Portuguese food, we slowly approach Belém Tower, Jerónimos Monastery and Padrão dos Descobrimentos Monument, an area devoted to 15th-century Portuguese sailors and known for its peculiar architectural features. 

With our appetite satisfied, we sail back and enjoy the sunset as we approach our final destination.

MEETING POINT

This boat is located in Doca do Espanhol.

As a reference point, we will meet at the coffee shop called ESPAÇO ZARCO, which is just in front of the entry to the marina.

REVIEWS

“Magnificent! Sailing the Tagus with Sílvia, Miguel, and crew was a truly unforgettable experience. Not only was Lisbon spectacular from the water, but we were so well cared for aboard the boat. Every aspect of this experience deserves ten stars, from the delightful conversation, history lessons, and comfort, to the expert sailing by Miguel. Oh, and the gastronomic tasting? DIVINE. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and for making our birthday celebration so special.”

“I really enjoyed this experience! The boat tour was amazing, especially if you have great weather as we had it that day. Silvia is very interesting to talk to and knows a lot about Lisbon, but at the same time, she'll also give you your space to relax and enjoy the moment. The food was a nice closure for the whole activity, with delicious local food and wine. The timing was perfect, we were exactly 3 hours on the boat, and got back right on time. Thanks Silvia!”

“Absolutely amazing time. Would recommend to anyone. The trip was very relaxed, with some great company who we met on the day. Our host (Silvia) was extremely welcoming and friendly (as was everyone on the boat). The boat itself was fantastic, as were the route and views. The swim partway through was also very enjoyable, maybe my favourite part! Before we finished we had a few tastings coupled with some wine, but I won’t give too much away as part of the fun is tasting & guessing. Can’t recommend enough.”

“I would really recommend this experience. The setting was beautiful, it was great to sail along the coast and see Lisbon as the sailors would have seen it in years gone by. Silvia is a very warm person and kind. The food also was extremely tasty and showcased some unusual Portuguese recipes. The boat was immaculate and the captain and his assistant were very pleasant and professional. We found this to be quite a lovely way to spend the day.”

– — Lisa, London, United Kingdom

“It was a truly special experience, made uniquely personal by the warm welcoming friendly nature of the hosts. It was a small group of only 5 guests, and Silvia was so skilled at helping the group gel and we we able to share personal stories, enjoy fun, laughter and chatting round the table over wonderful food.”
