What you'll do

The boat “Senhora do Cais”, is one of the few traditional Tagus boats that have survived to this day. You will be comfortably seated, and enjoying the sea breeze on the next 1 hour. Navigate along the riverside and enjoy the sights and history, while you take your photographs and videos, to record the trip. We will stop on the Discovery monument, the Central Tejo museum, the MAAT – Museum for Art, Architecture and Technology, amazing modern building, where you can only get this perspective from the boat, moving to the Tagus bridge, where you will realize the real size of it, which is amongst the 33 biggest bridges in the world. The boat goes under the bridge, then turns right and you face the Cristo Rei, blessing the city, built by Salazar in 1952, in thanking God, for having saved Portugal from being involved the II World War. Now, it’s time to return and we will enjoy a distant vision of the coast of Lisbon, viewing the highest buildings like the Palácio da Ajuda, the last King’s address which is today a palace and a museum worth visiting, continuing in the direction of the sea, and arriving at the Belem Tower, which is much nicer seen from the river as well as the Champalimaud Centre, famous for its scientific research on vision and cancer and built in the shape of a ship. Here, our one-hour cruise ends and we return to the marina. We are waiting for you.

Learn more about Pedro

Pedro

Hi, my name is Pedro I was born and raised in Lisbon, having lived my entire life in this marvelous and historic city. After any trip abroad, when I return to Lisbon, I come straight to the river to feel the light and the river breeze. As a child I was lucky as my father had a boat and ever since I was little I have always been inside a boat. Three years ago, I acquired a rare and special boat, one “Canoa do Tejo”, a traditional Portuguese boat, all made in wood and hand painted with flowers and cheerful themes in bright colors by the local artisans. Thus, in the last 3 years I have spent my time cruising the Tagus and showing Lisbon and the river to everybody who has shown a desire to see it. I work as a team with my other skippers, and together, we want to be the Portuguese ambassadors of the city riverside as well as of the Tagus River
