Project Description

Full Day Self-Drive Boat Rental

Our boat experience is the best possible way to explore Arrábida and its surroundings. Enjoy a full day of peaceful sailing along the most beautiful and calm portuguese coastlines, in Arrábida Marine Reserve, just 30 minutes from Lisbon. Admire the amazing limestone cliffs and explore the hidden secluded beaches with your family or friends on this private boat rental.

Discover this stunning region at your own pace and at your command as you’ll be the Captain of this boat experience. During the circuit you may want to drop anchor in one of the many beautiful sights, so you’ll have the opportunity to jump in the water for a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters, or just swim to any given beach to grab lunch somewhere in the shore.

This private and entirely customizable boat adventure will allow you to explore Arrábida – commonly described as a Portuguese Paradise. You´ll be able to admire the Natural Park and its amazing surroundings, you’ll find some of the most beautiful sandy beaches and rare animal species (you might even be able to spot a friendly boar chilling at the beach), it’s simply spectacular.

This full day aboard our private boat will give you inspiration and positive energy, it’s a mesmerizing exclusive experience that will grant you access to some secret spots in Arrábida and its surroundings, and to landscapes that are impossible (others extremely difficult) to reach by land.

Recommendations: Swimsuits, beach towels and sunscreen are highly recommended. During your boat trip you’ll be able to go for a swim, dock on deserted beaches to sunbathe, relax and even explore a little by land. You’re welcome to bring your own food and drinks as it’s probable that you’ll feel peckish and thirsty after all that diving and swiming. On the full day option, your skipper will point you to some delicious spots where you can stop for a quick lunch/snacks. There is a maximum cap of 8 hours for the tour, but you are welcome to return to base once you’ve had your fill of sailing and relaxing (the price remains the same either way). We also recommend bringing a warm coat or sweatshirt, just in case!

Pick Up & Drop Off: There is a pick up and drop off service departing from and arriving at Lisbon’s center available for an additional fee of 120€ (total, regardless of the number of passengers). If you choose this option you will be picked up at 8am for the morning tour or 1.00pm for the afternoon tour in front of the Hard Rock Café (must be booked in advance).

Physical Requirements: This experience includes an 8h boat rental. During this time you will be the one who chooses what to do and where to go! We do recommend a few stops to go for a swim, walk around in secluded beaches and soak in some sun in the sandy shores so a certain level of physical capability is required in order to get in and out of the boat, swim to the shore and so on.

Cancellations/Rescheduling: Can be canceled or rescheduled free of charge up to 72h before the scheduled departure, from then onwards all orders are final and non-refundable.
