About Halcyon I Lisbon Boat Tours
Enjoy our Lisbon historical boat tours on a staggering private wooden yacht. Leaving from Alcantara harbour, we sail down to Belem Tower and up to Alfama, the amazing old town, so you can appreciate the picturesque and colourful Lisbon and its monuments. While sailing, you can choose from staying on a sheltered living room, with windows all around, just roam or sit in the front, on comfortable deck chairs, as you only find on Halcyon I. Up to eighteen guests, we garante privacy on over 6 guests groups. You choose the departing hour. We hoist all sails, whenever possible. These two hours historical guided tours in English, French or Spanish, may be a great help on planing your visit to Lisbon. We also have a private three hours program (lunch or dinner included), a full day private cruise to Cascais, lunch included, and a more than three days charter to Arrabida Natural Park. Take a look to our site for full details.

Great cruise with nice bubbly and nibbles. Beautiful old boat. Lucky enough to go under sail. Longer cruise than we had hoped for as well. Recommended.
