Here you will board a modern catamaran, for a relaxing and enjoyable cruise on the Sado Estuary, where you’ll learn about the resident bottlenose dolphins and hopefully be able to observe some wild dolphins in their natural environment. The cruise takes between 2 1/2 to 3 hours, but may take longer.
The duration may change due to weather conditions or the dolphins being more "shy"...
Note: for wildlife preservation and respecting the dolphins habitat, we will be a maximum of 30 minutes near the dolphins with the ship.
See the natural reserve of Arrábida, take in the stunning views, and learn about the area’s history.
From the ocean, and before returning to the old city centre of Setúbal you’ll see a few of the region’s historic monuments and sites like the Arrábida Convent and the Saint Filipe Fort.
Before returning to Lisbon, you’ll stop at a few sights in the Arrabida Mountain range, from where you can marvel at the natural reserve and get a “land view” of this region.
Lastly we will head back to Lisbon for you to be dropped -off at the same location as your pick-up.
