Dolphin Watching Cruise Itinerary

After meeting at 9:30 am at Santo Amaro Docks in Lisbon, you'll climb aboard your boat and set sail on your dolphin-watching adventure.

Begin by cruising down the River Tagus in the direction of the Atlantic Ocean. The boat will sail under the iconic 25 April Bridge and pass by some of Belém's most emblematic monuments, offering you magnificent views of Lisbon's riverside sights. As you sail out to sea, you'll also see the Bugio Lighthouse and enjoy the spectacular rugged coastline of Portugal.

Cruising out to the ocean, you'll begin searching for dolphins. Keep an eye out for them swimming, playing and jumping out of the water. As they usually travel in pods, if you spot one, there will probably be a whole group of them moving together!

If you're lucky, as well as watching these friendly marine mammals approach the boat and play in the waves around it, you'll be able to see other species too. See if you can spot sharks, jellyfish and even sea turtles!

At the end of this incredible experience, you'll return to Santo Amaro Dock at 12:30 pm.

Important information

Dolphins are very common around this area of Portugal. However, as the animals live freely and are unpredictable, we cannot guarantee they will be seen on your trip.
