What You Can Expect
Continue along the waterfront, where you will get a panoramic view of the wide Tagus River before you change to a smooth-sailing, comfortable boat for your sightseeing cruise in Lisbon.
Relax as you enjoy panoramic views of the lush Park of the Nations (Parque das Nações), in the modern part of Lisbon where the 1998 Universal Expo was held, and the glass Oceanário (Lisbon's aquarium).
Admire views of St George Castle (Castelo de São Jorge), São Vicente Monastery and beautiful parks overlooking the Tagus River. Enjoy plenty of photo opportunities as the cruise takes you south of the river, passing the beautiful southern part of the Bairro Alto and Alfama districts.
As you get closer to the Belém district, see the Monument of the Discoveries, which commemorates Portugal's important role in the discovery of the Americas, and the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower. Your sightseeing cruise will finish in this area, so you will have the opportunity to visit the monuments at your own leisure and expense.
Not to be missed because seeing the city from a different perspective really increases your awareness of the place as a whole. The boat crew were all very friendly and happy to give info about what we were seeing. Only criticism was that for a long time the loudspeaker was too low and one couldn't hear the narrative.
We used the hotel pick-up option which was ideal start to the cruise. Cruise itself offers fantastic alternate views of Lisbon with plenty photo opportunities. We sat on the shaded sun deck the whole time to benefit from the sea breeze. Good commentary. Snacks available. You'll love this.
