WHAT TO EXPECT
This tour begins as you head south from Lisbon to Setúbal. It´s a region best known for its natural reserve and beaches. For the dolphin watching, board a modern catamaran for a relaxing and enjoyable cruise on the Sado Estuary. Above all, you’ll learn about the resident bottlenose dolphins, and hopefully be able to observe some wild dolphins in their natural environment.
The cruise takes between 2 1/2 to 3 hours. See the natural reserve of Arrábida, taking in the stunning views, and learning about the area’s history. From the ocean, and before returning to the old city centre of Setúbal, you’ll see a few of the region’s historic monuments. Sites like the Arrábida Convent and the Saint Filipe Fort. Finally, before returning to Lisbon, you’ll stop at a site in the Arrabida Mountain range. Due to the higher-up location in the mountain, you can marvel at the natural reserve and get a “land view” of this amazing region.
