Witness bottle-nose dolphins glide through the sea on this full-day guided sea life sightseeing tour from Lisbon. South of Lisbon, discover one of the 10 most beautiful bays in the world, and explore a natural park and a region known for its wines and cheese.

Cruise atop one of the globe’s most scintillating bays in a modern catamaran, or a historic Salt Galleon, and see interesting marine life. You will also voyage to a natural park, as well as learn about regional cheese and wines that have drawn much acclaim in Azeitão.

This full-day tour begins as you head south from Lisbon to Setúbal, a region best known for its wine, cheese and gastronomy.
Here you will board a modern catamaran or a fully restored salt galleon (depending on weather and sea conditions), for a relaxing and enjoyable cruise in the Sado Estuary, where you’ll learn about the resident bottlenose dolphins and hopefully be able to observe wild dolphins in their natural environment.
The cruise takes between 2 to 3 hours. See the natural reserve of Arrábida, take in the stunning views, and learn about the area’s history and gastronomy.
You’ll see, from the ocean, the Arrábida Convent and discover some important historical sites before returning to the old city centre of Setúbal.

Before returning to Lisbon, you’ll stop to taste a special liqueur, made according to a centuries old recipe and that can only be found in this region. Besides this you will also be able to taste the regional Azeitão cheese, homemade bread and different sweets that you have probably never tried.
