Watch the Lisbon Sunset from a Boat

Golden hour on the river, view from the river on the bridge

The Golden Hour of Lisbon, one of the most beautiful sights in the"City of Seven Hills"


Lisbon Sunset Cruise - why is it so special?

As the sun slowly disappears on the horizon during the evening, an incomparable play of colors takes place on the waters of the Tejo. The reflections of the water and the warm sunlight make the historical buildings of Lisbon appear in a spectacular light. While the yacht glides elegantly through the water, you can enjoy the best view of Lisbon and the Tagus River from the deck. If you have ever experienced a Sunset Boat Tour, you will never forget this moment of beauty and freedom.

Our charter yachts offer plenty of space & comfortable seating, lounging and standing options. All of them are available for the Sunset Cruise in Lisbon. Take a look at what our charter fleet has to offer.

best times

The best time to see the sunset in Lisbon

The sunset is influenced by several factors such as weather, season, location.

In summer, the sunset is longer and also later than in winter.

This does not mean that a sunset in the winter months is less beautiful than in the summer. Of course, what speaks for a sunset boots trip in the summer are outside temperature & duration.

In the winter we provide you with warm blankets so you can snuggle up on the comfortable sofa cushions on deck.

If you want to be a bit more cozy, you can also stay inside our yachts. For this we recommend you to rent a boat like: Catamaran, Yacht Princess 45 or Yacht Alalunga.

There you will have comfort and a very good panoramic view of the Lisbon sunset.

If you want to rent a yacht, our skipper will advise you about the best time for a sunset tour. For orientation please have a look at the Lisbon Sunset Times Table.

A sunset is the moment when the last visible upper edge of the sun disappears on the horizon.

With the moment of the sunset it is by no means over with the sunlight. Because the remaining light often creates a colorful twilight in the sky.
