I'm Valter, a calm and sociable guy, born and raised in Lisbon.

I was in the Portuguese navy for three years, worked as an accountant for three years and was a banker for the last 10.

My passion for sailing began in 2008, aboard a 23-meter wooden sailboat, from 1935 and since then never stopped.
In 2018 I quit the bank in order to change my life, the way I saw it and lived it, and to share my passion with others around the world.

My main goal is to sail the world and who those have you as a crew :)

Fun and interesting tour of the rio tejo and the landmarks along it. Our skipper Martim was excellent! Very knowledgeable and friendly and ensured we all had a great time. Highly recommend this experience!

Martim was a super friendly and knowledgeable guide who was very professional. He looked after the whole group showing interest in everyone at some point in the trip. Martim's knowledge of sailing was brilliant and he had lots of information about the history, major buildings and landmarks in Lisbon along the riverand throughout the city. The whole experience was very relaxing. Ispent most of my time at the front of the boat so could hear most of the information but Martim didn't mind repeating later on the return journey. Many thanks for a great trip the sky was amazing at sunset. I recommend this to other tourists visiting Lisbon.

Martim was a great host, very friendly and thoughtful and nice to chat with! We went on an extra long sunset sail where he provided us with drinks and blankets throughout the tour and shared some insights on Lisbon's history when passing the attractions. He also let us take over manoeuvring the boat. We enjoyed the evening a lot!

Lisbon seen from the water is always fantastic but in our tour there was no storytelling about the city at all, just the sailing, some beers and some chips (no wine).

what a chill way to experience lisbon from another vantagepoint. our captain was very engaging with the guests, and the true sailing (instead of just using the motor with a sail up) lent a nice bit of added adventure. [lean!] cheers to them.

Great time seeing the sunset on the river! We had a good time, some wine, and a decent history lesson of the monuments that we could see from the boat.
