Nice trip, with beautiful views of Lisbon. The chance of spotting dolphins seems very small to me on this trip. You sail through the river and at the transition to the ocean you almost immediately turn around, so we did not see any dolphins. Do you want to see dolphins? Book a speedboat tour. Do you want to see Lisbon and the surrounding area from the water? Book this tour! Definitely recommended.

Wonderful and perfectly safe for someone who is not confortable with deep waters.

We were picked up on time, but had to walk about 7-8 minutes to the boat, which might be a bit strenuous for people who can't walk very well. The trip was super relaxed, you really see a lot of Lisbon, especially the difference between "old" and "new". If you don't want to go to the south of Lisbon, you can also see the Cristo Rei (Jesus statue) very well from the boat and you can drive under the bridge. What I found a bit unfortunate was that we only stopped the boat for about 10 minutes to look for the dolphins, as the journey to the beginning of the sea was quite long. But as I said, you can see a lot of Lisbon.

Do not do in winter as there is little chance of seeing dolphins at this time. According to the guide they can be seen from April during the breeding period because they come closer.

Lovely boat and the crew were so friendly and informative. To see Lisbon from the river and to have someone tell you all about the history etc was so good. Then we got to see a few dolphins so fabulous. Would recommend.
