Project Description

Private Day Trip with Skipper – Discover Arrábida by Boat

Enjoy a full day of peaceful sailing along the breathtaking coastline of Arrábida Marine Reserve, just 30 minutes from Lisbon. Admire the remarkable limestone cliffs and explore the hidden secluded beaches with your family and friends, guided by your private skipper.

Arrábida is often described as a real-life paradise; it’s a dream-like place where the earthy green of vegetation meets the crystal clear blue of the ocean. During these 8 hours you will be able to admire the Natural Park and its astonishing surroundings from a brand new point of view: from the ocean!

On this private boat experience, you will be the captain! The trip will follow the rhythm you wish, all you have to do is let your skipper know whenever you see something you’d like to explore and he’ll simply take you there. You will be able to anchor in different locations, enjoy the sun, take a dip in the sea and swim to the shore for a bite to eat or just relax on a sandy beach.

This full day aboard our private vessel will both inspire you and instill you with the kind of positive energy you can only get from nature. It’s a mesmerizing and exclusive experience that will grant you access to secret, inaccessible spots in and around Arrábida, and to landscapes that are either impossible or 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 trip with your own private skipper. During this time you will be the one who chooses what to do and where to go! Your skipper will be happy to give you insider tips on where to have lunch or go for snacks if you prefer to remain “swim-ready” at all times. 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: Tours 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.
