What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Tagus River Sunset Cruise in Lisbon

Enjoy a private sailing trip!

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.

Our captain and his young helper were so accommodating and gracious. Not only did we have a lovely tour he provided us with lots of information about Lisbon and surrounding area. We loved it and couldn't have asked for more!

The highlight of our trip, to celebrate my dad's birthday. The 4 of us had the entire boat to ourselves. The skipper spoke perfect English and made us laugh with our ongoing commentary about life in Lisbon vs. the US. The complimentary beverages brewed and fermented were a perfect addition to our trip. My dad will never forget that evening, on the water - it was truly spectacular.

My wife and I scheduled this sunset cruise for our first full day in Lisbon. Unfortunately, it was rainy and cold on this day. We were unsure if the cruise would be cancelled, but the owner of the company came and picked us up at the hotel. He said that since the weather was bad, we would be going out on a catamaran, instead of a traditional sailboat. The boat was beautiful and the captain, Joao, was very nice. We enjoyed having the boat to ourselves and the unique views of Lisbon from the river. Joao was a great guide and we had a nice experience, despite the weather. The owner of the company had offered another sunset cruise, since ours had such bad weather, but we did not feel that this was necessary, as we had a great time on the cruise we went on.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Lisbon. The boat was clean and safe, the skipper was very pleasant. It was a beautiful night which, of course, helped. We were very comfortable on board. Our only slight problem was that we were unsure if we were waiting at the correct place before the tour began - could do with some signage.
