This list will help you choose the best boat tour for your event. After hundreds of events we resume here for you the top 3 boat tours in Lisbon.
On the following map we present you the 2 main routes for boat tours in Lisbon.
This option is the number 1 option for boat tours in Lisbon. We chose it as the TOP PICK because it covers it all. You will have a bit of sailing, a bit of history and a bit of glamour when going so close the monuments by the water and enjoying the wonderfull views over the city.
As seen on the map above, the main attractions on the Tagus River estuary are just by the river, beginning with the beautiful Tower of Belém, 25th April Bridge, Electricity Museum, Discoveries Monument, Garden of Belém and Jeronimos Monastery, Ajuda Palace, Commerce Square and Alfama closer to the city center and the Christ Monument.
Normally 2 hours, but it can go up to 3 hours if you choose to do it slower.
Also the boat can extend a bit to one of the sides (east or west)
This route considers the first route plus some extra miles. This is our pick number 2, because you will see the best of Lisbon plus the newer area Parque das Nações.
You could choose this option if you pretend to enjoy the calm water of the Tagus River, and at the same time enjoy the views over the modern area of Parque das Nações.
Also, as we need some extra hours for this route, you will have more time on board to enjoy the event at the same time that the boat keeps running.
These destinations are the normal anchor points for events where the boat will stop close to a beach, so the guests can have a calm lunch or go for a swim.
These areas are also known to be more open than into the Tagus river. So if you feel like your group would prefer to experience sailing a bit on salty water, this option is the right for you.
So this option is our last pick because we consider them ideal for boat parties and half a day/full day events. For boat tours, the best option is Route 1 or Route 2.
