Marques de Pombal, Meeting Place

You start by being picked-up for your tour at the designated meeting point in Lisbon. This tour begins as you head south from Lisbon to Setúbal, a region best known for its fish culture and the natural reserve.

Setúbal

In Setúbal 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.

Sado Estuary

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.

Saint Filipe Castle

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.

Magique!

Pris en charge par notre guide, nous voici partis pour une découverte inoubliable. Le voyage est ponctué d’explications très intéressantes. Le guide nous a même emmenés en fin de visite au fort pour un point de vue magnifique. L’apothéose de cette balade : la rencontre avec les dauphins! En un seul mot : magique!

Fantastic Experience

We had such a great time and our guides were friendly, helpful and enjoyed serving us as much as we enjoyed the tour. We encountered Dolphins shortly after leaving harbour and this company has a 98% success rate for finding Dolphins and a marine biologist on board. They do sell refreshments on board but you can bring your own wine etc.. Just an allround fantastic experience and thanks to our guides Rod (perfect English) and Joao. The trip up to the Castle was a bonus with stunning views of where we had been that day.
