I invite you to join me on a tour along the Tagus River. Come and visit Lisbon in a different way, be amazed by it’s colours, the way they spread over the hills and touch the river. We will sail from the Doca de Santo Amaro (Santo Amaro Dock under the bridge), to the Praça do Comércio, one of the most beautiful plazas in the word. From there we can see the old neighborhoods of Lisbon: Chiado, Baixa, Castelo and Alfama. Then it’s time to cross to Cacilhas on the other side of the river to get the widest possible view of the city. Sail close to the Cristo Rei on the south bank, cross under the bridge and sail to Belém to see its tower. On the way back you will see how the people of Lisbon love to walk, sit and chat by the side of the river; usually the banks are full of people enjoying the sun, the river and boats passing by. You will have plenty of time to take amazing pictures of the city and of this incredible experience. I will wait for you aboard
Angelo, Tati & Lopo
Hi I'm Lopo, a great friend of Angelo and Tati and I will be your host in this experience. I live and sail mainly in Lisbon. I have sailed since my childhood, it was at this time that I I fell in love with the sea and sailing boats. I was a sailing instructor and have transported sail boats between the Portuguese coast and the Mediterranean. I love Lisbon, and sailing along the Tagus I am able to "introduce" and show it to people. I've been a professional since 2007, and I work as a skipper doing charters and tours on the Tagus river. When I'm not at sea, I like to ride my motorcycle on long distance adventures, drawing and taking photos of places and people I meet along the way.
