    We went sailing in Lisbon on the Tagus River

    We went on a private sailing tour on the Tagus River, in Lisbon. We met our skipper, Nuno, at the Docas de Santo Amaro where he welcomed us on his lovely and cosy “Alchemist”. As we did this sailing tour during the post-lockdown period, Nuno helped us disinfect our hands and shoes before boarding and he’d wear a face mask. These are the protocols by the national Clean and Safe seal. Once we were all comfortably seated, we were ready to set sail. The wind was on point so we were lucky to almost not use the engine.  Nuno has a passion for sailing in his veins and you could…

    We went on a boat tour and spotted wild dolphins in Lisbon!

    By Lianne, responsible for the Spanish market and content/translations at SeaBookings. Not only I didn’t know that it was possible to see dolphins in Lisbon, but I also didn’t know how many dolphins you can find around Lisbon, I was really surprised!

The same afternoon I could join the tour (and that in the high season!). I took a bus from Lisbon to Setúbal. From Praça de Espanha I could easily take the bus and I was told that the cheapest…
