What You Can Expect

Tagus River Sunset Cruise in Lisbon

Enjoy a cruise 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.

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.

An unexpected bonus: this was on a yacht! We were expecting some sort of pleasure barge. Was a tad chilly, in February, but blankets were available. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip, and we got some fantastic pics

This was nice, but cold the time we went. Not the fault of anyone, just a shade uncomfortable, but the views were lovely.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

Would definitely recommend this cruise. The staff was friendly and never did we feel rushed. We were a group of 6 adults and a 3 year old. The sunset was beautiful and they even had blankets for those that felt chilled. it is such a great way to see the other side of Lisbon. We will do this again when we go back to Lisbon.

We had a perfect sail the first night in Lisbon with minimal fog. It was a beautiful way to start our Portugal vacation.

The tour was great! The sunset was amazing and the hospitality was excellent. The only thing I would say is to wrap up WARM. It gets very cold out on the water. I think a note of this could be made on the product page (if it is already, then I guess I missed it!)


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

We took this tour the day we arrived, and it was the perfect start. The boat itself, called the 'pirate ship' by the skipper, was a bit funky, but a lot of fun. We were a small group of maybe 10 or 12. The guides two of them provided blankets needed once the sun sets and lovely cheese, jamón ibérico and port. Highly recommend. The meeting place is a bit far, start early. Uber is great in Portugal, make sure you get a Sim card or get an international plan so you can access it.

What a wonderful experience! The 2-hour cruise is a fantastic way to see Lisbon by water -- and at sunset no less. All the photos we took were incredible. The family that gave us the tour was wonderful -- Antonio, his wife Ana, and their son and his girlfriend. They made the experience truly memorable, giving us a nice dose of history, pointing out special landmarks, and of course taking photos of our group! They even had wine and champagne to offer us. I couldn't recommend this tour enough!

This is a great tour of the Tagus River. The boat is comfortable, with plenty of space and the captain did a great job with the cruise. They served drinks and we had the chance to see a beautiful sunset. Highly recommended.
