Overview

Palmayachts is certified by Portuguese Tourism Board as a Clean & Safe company regarding COVID-19 prevention measures and procedures.

Leave Lisbon's crowds behind and enjoy the city's famous sights aboard a beautiful sailboat with a cruise on the Tagus. Featuring wonderful panoramic views, famous monuments that honor the Age of Discovery, and impressively engineered bridges, this is a city tour to remember.
As you sail out from the medieval port of Belem into the Tagus river estuary, your eye is caught almost immediately by the striking Monument to the Discoveries, built to celebrate the region's rich history of exploring the New World. The crew expertly navigates your craft upriver, taking you beneath the 25th of April Bridge as the dome of the Estrela Basilica in Lisbon's Old Town comes into view.
Both shores of the river have landmarks to catch your eye: the Castle of São Jorge, the statue of Christ the King, and the Vasco de Gama Bridge.

What To Expect

Padrao dos Descobrimentos
Padrão dos Descobrimentos is a monument on the northern bank of the Tagus River estuary, in Belém, Lisbon. Located along the river where ships departed to explore and trade with India and the Orient, the monument celebrates the Portuguese Age of Discovery (or Age of Exploration) during the 15th and 16th centuries.

25 de Abril Bridge
Travelers will pass under the bridge

The 25 de Abril Bridge is a suspension bridge connecting the city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal, to the municipality of Almada on the left (south) bank of the Tagus river. It was inaugurated on August 6, 1966, and a train platform was added in 1999. It is often compared to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, US, because they are both suspension bridges of similar color. It was built by the American Bridge Company which constructed the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, but not the Golden Gate. With a total length of 2,277 metres (7,470 ft), it is the 32nd largest suspension bridge in the world. The upper deck carries six car lanes, while the lower deck carries a double track railway electrified at 25 kV AC. Until 1974, the bridge was named Salazar Bridge. The name "25 de Abril" commemorates the Carnation Revolution.

Torre de Belem
Belém Tower is a UNESCO World Heritage located in Lisbon that played a key role in Europe’s Age of Discoveries, since it served both as a fortress and as a port from where Portuguese explorers departed to establish what would be the first European trade in history with China and India. It also served as a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon.

• Admission Ticket Free

The Sanctuary of Christ the King is a Catholic monument and shrine dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ overlooking the city of Lisbon situated in Almada, in Portugal. It was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, after the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon visited that monument. The project was inaugurated on 17 May 1959, while Portugal was ruled by António de Oliveira Salazar. The giant statue in cement was erected to express gratitude because the Portuguese were spared the effects of World War II.

• Admission Ticket Free

Praca do Comercio (Terreiro do Paco)
The Praça do Comércio is located in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. Situated near the Tagus river, the square is still commonly known as Terreiro do Paço because it was the location of the Paços da Ribeira (Royal Ribeira Palace) until it was destroyed by the great 1755 Lisbon earthquake. After the earthquake, the square was completely remodeled as part of the rebuilding of the Pombaline Downtown, ordered by Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, 1st Marquis of Pombal, who was the Minister of the Kingdom of Portugal from 1750 to 1777, during the reign of Dom José I, King of Portugal.

• Admission Ticket Free

Castelo de S. Jorge
From the River you can see the beautiful Castelo de São Jorge that stands majestically above Lisbon and is one of the finest tourist attractions in the city.

Fantastic 2 hour sailing tour on the river of Lisbon
Fredrik_J, 10-08-2022
This 2 hour sailing trip with palmayachts was one of the best experiences me and my partner had of Lisbon. Luis and Luis are highly professional sailors with lots of knowledge about the river and the city. Everything went smoothly from the beginning of the trip to the end of it. Both me and my partner loved every second of the trip. We learned super much new things about the city and its landmarks.

Thanks a lot to Luis and Luis for making this great experience for me and my partner.

Cheers from Sweden.

/Fredrik and Melinda
