Had a wonderful two hour cruise on the Halcyon. We were allowed to enjoy the sights of Lisbon from the water. I can't think of a better way to see the hills, the castle and the bridge. Having Cava and some snacks made us feel...More

Thank you verry much for your review. Hope you had a nice stay in Lisbon. Forgot to tell you that Halcyon I plans are English. G. L. Watson & Co, the oldest yacht design company in the UK, and probably the World's. Cheers. Luis

Went sailing in this charming and unique boat. Different from all others. Lisbon seemed even more beautiful seen from Tagus river. These 2-hour sailing cruises are perfect as one can see Lisbon hills from a whole different perspective.

Amazing boat, and very friendly skipper. Weekend or day trip on the bat, really worth it! The boat is a classic boat sailing/motor boat so don't expect modern day luxuries.
