Boat Rental Boat Tour
Explore the cultural and historical attractions of Portugal's capital with Lisbon by Boat, a company that showcases the city from an aquatic point of view. Hop aboard one of the speedy boats, departing from the dock in the Belem neighborhood, and zip your way through the waters of the Tagus River. You'll get a chance to see and learn about Lisbon's major sights from a new perspective, including the Belem Tower, castle of St. George, monuments, and more, with the help of your tour guide. You can choose a tour suited to your tastes, ranging from a quick, 30-minute trip to a longer, multi-hour adventure that gives a more in-depth look at the waterways and shoreline. Or opt for a more leisurely sailing cruise, complete with food and wine. You can also try your hand at a fishing excursion. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Lisbon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lisbon by Boat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.

  • We did a sailing tour - it was great. 3 Crew Members, 6 guests and the crew provides us with a lot of useful information about the city. We got a snack and a drink and the service was really great. I can absolutely recommend the tour!
  • Guide/skipper was very knowledgeable and spoke great English and French. Great views of the city and a nice sunset sail back down the river with wine and other snacks.
  • Amazing experience we had on our trip with Paula in the first week of May 2017. Beautiful Sunset view with amazing snacks & Wine . Great experience with great host Paula . Will definitely re visit whenever possible .
  • We went on a 1 hour tour with Paul. This was such a great thing to do, especially with teenagers. A good mix of excitement and culture! Paul speaks great French & English!
  • Highly recommend the sunset sailing tour. Beautiful scenery, interesting and friendly guide, wine and cheese to nibble on and a small group (6 of us in our case) which meant we could all lounge at the front of the yacht with a great view.
