Depart from Lisbon's city center on a fast rigid inflatable boat. The crew and Marine biologist will make sure you have a safety briefing and debrief of the activity so you can enjoy the most of it. Once arriving at the ocean, get to know the wildlife more closely and learn about the species of dolphins and seabirds with a specialist onboard. Spend up to three hours venturing in the ocean to watch for dolphins and find other marine species like sea fish, sharks, jellyfish, or even sea-turtles. The more species we find, the more exciting the activiy will be. We always make sure the safety and comfortable ocean conditions are met so you can enjoy the experience. Before heading back, you will see the beautiful monuments seen from the river, Monuments for the Discoveries, the Jerónimos Monastery, and the Tower of Belém. This activity can only be done in certified and licenced boat companies to Observe Cetacean in their natural habitat.
