Enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience on a glamorous yacht, sailing calmly along the Douro River while contemplating the main sights of the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. The navigation is carried out by two experienced crew members and is always carried out calmly, with short breaks, so that you can contemplate the main sights and carry out photo sessions to later remember your trip.

After visiting the main tourist attractions, it's time to relax under the natural waters of the mouth of the Douro River for about 60 minutes, being able to lie down on our bow solarium, close your eyes and feel the sea breeze or if you prefer, sit in our aft solarium or even go up to our flybridge and observe the beautiful natural landscape of the Douro Estuary from the highest point of the yacht. An ideal experience for couples, families or groups of friends up to a maximum of 12 people, held away from the crowds in a refined atmosphere.
