What You Can Expect

Tagus River Sunset Cruise in Lisbon

Enjoy a cruise down Lisbon's Tagus River as the sun sets!

Meet near the Museu do Oriente in central Lisbon for a 2-hour Tagus River sunset cruise you won’t forget. Hop on-board your sailboat at Lisbon’s 25th of April Bridge and relax as dusk begins to settle over the Lisbon skyline. After the crew sets the sails and you begin cruising, stand along the deck and relish Lisbon’s most famous attractions.

Enjoy a full glass of champagne as the boat sails beneath the 25th of April Bridge. As the sun dwindles look out at Belém Tower and Jerónimos Monastery, both UNESCO World heritage sites, and watch as they illuminate in rays of golden light. Sailing Lisbon has never been more special than passing the Monument to the Discoveries which honors ships that departed in the 15th and 16th centuries to explore India and the Orient.

During your serene voyage, listen as your pleasant crew highlights Lisbon’s famous landmarks like the Christ the King monument (Cristo Rei). Learn how this shrine, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, was influenced by the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

After the sun dips below the Atlantic, begin the journey across the Tagus River back to the dock. Disembark from your sailboat and finish one of the best sailing trips in Lisbon.

This tour with one of the best things in our trip to Lisbon. The sunset timing was great, and the small group size made it so enjoyable as well. The bubbly was the icing on the cake. The vendor had great communications and helped us locate them in plenty of time. Our skipper helped us seniors feel confident as we boarded and also when we returned and had to step off the boat onto the pier. Many thanks for a memorable evening !

Tour was great. Our skipper was knowledgable and gave us all the needed information, brought us bubbly and ensured a smooth sailing with amazing views. The sunset and Lisbon from Tagus river look stunning. and due to us being only 8, we had our own private, romantic evening. Would definitely recommend tour to everybody who wants to relax and enjoy amazing views of Lisbon. TIP: although blankets are available on the boat, bring a hoodie as it gets a bit chilly.

This was amazing and verry romantic. The boat was beautifull and the city by night is just awesome to see. We started when it was fully sunny and got back when it was fully dark. We went directly to the harbor after a walk in the city. We didn't realize that it is colder at see. So we ended up in summer clothes. Thankfully the boat had blankets !bring a sweater anyway!
