Meet near the Museu do Oriente in central Lisbon and board your private sailboat for a 2-hour breathtaking sunset Tagus River cruise. After your crew prepares the sails, depart from the 25th of April Bridge and begin your private tour over the Tagus River. Savor stunning views of historic monuments drenched in warm golden rays, like Lisbon’s famous Christ the King monument (Cristo Rei). Learn how the monument was influenced by the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Continue along the lively Tagus River and spot Lisbon’s most famous attractions. Glimpse out at Belém Tower which once was used as a defense system at the mouth of the Tagus River. Hear from your friendly crew how this tower was dedicated to Saint Vincent, Lisbon’s patron saint. As the sun dips deeper, marvel at the Monument to the Discoveries which was built to honor the many Portuguese explorers who risked everything to sail to new lands in India and beyond.
Just as the sun is about to descend below the Atlantic, capture spectacular views of the UNESCO-listed Jerónimos Monastery. Enjoy its late Portuguese Gothic Manueline style of architecture as the sun sets. Then journey back to land, where your private Tagus River sunset cruise ends.
