Exploring Lisbon

As you step on board the boat, you’ll immediately be captivated by the stunning views of Lisbon and its surroundings. The Tagus River, with its shimmering waters and picturesque landscapes, sets the stage for a truly magical experience. Departing from the historic Doca de Alcantara, the boat takes you on a leisurely cruise along the river, passing by iconic landmarks such as the 25 April Bridge, Christ-King, MAAT, Belém Tower and Commerce Square.

The spacious sundeck offers ample seating options, allowing you to relax in the sun or seek shade under the awnings. Take advantage of this prime vantage point to capture Instagram-worthy photos of Lisbon’s hilly landscape and architectural wonders. Inside the boat, comfortable seating and large windows provide panoramic views, ensuring that every guest can fully appreciate the beauty of the city from a unique perspective.

A Feast for the Senses: The Culinary Delights

Dinners on board are a growing trend among companies. What began as an occasional experience for special celebrations with family and friends has become an increasingly common practice to strengthen bonds and promote a healthy working environment.

As the Christmas season approaches, many companies are already starting to plan their Christmas dinner. In addition to Christmas dinners, some people also choose to hold company anniversary celebrations or even themed dinners.

No dining experience on a boat in Lisbon would be complete without indulging in a sumptuous meal. The onboard restaurant offers a delectable a la carte menu, showcasing the best of Portuguese cuisine. From traditional starters to mouth-watering main courses and divine desserts, every dish is prepared with the utmost care and attention to detail.

The menus served on board are suitable for each boat as each vessel has its own specific characteristics (for example, there are boats on which it is possible to serve barbecue or seafood).

Don’t forget! Save room for dessert, as the offerings are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Fresh fruit, coffee, and tea are also available to complement your meal. During dinner, drinks are included, ensuring that you can enjoy your favorite beverage.

Live Entertainment on Board

Immerse yourself in the vibrant and soulful sounds of Fado, a traditional Portuguese music genre that evokes emotions like no other. Let the melancholic melodies and poetic lyrics transport you to the heart of Portuguese culture and history.

As well as fado, there are other types of live entertainment you can enjoy during your meal. Such as the performance of a pianist, a group of saxophonists, a DJ or even bringing your own playlist. If you want to be even more original, you can share your idea with us!
