I booked the sunset sailing tour for my boyfriend's birthday. The boat was amazing and it was perfect just being the two of us sipping the sparkling wine provided. I would highly recommend it for a special occasion, and an alternative way to see the sights of Lisbon.

We went on the 11 hour fishing charter. All in our party love to fish. We were disappointed to learn on arrival that there would be so many people and that we would not be going far from the coast due to weather. For those familiar, it was basically a "party boat" fishing type charter. We still had a lot of fun though. The guides were great and made everyone feel welcome. The food and drink they provided was a great way to get to know everyone and relax. We probably would not have gone if we had known were going to stay that close to shore. We caught many fish but all were real small. The crew made the best of it.

Hi, thanks for your review. On windy days, we really have to be closer to shore so the fish are normally smaller. Regarding our fishing charters, we have one boat suitable up to 8 guests and another for 12. The bigger boat deals better with the waves and is more comfortable specially on windy days. Really hope you can join us again and have the chance to experience bigger fish. my regards

My partner booked the trip with Ricardo for my 40th Birthday and we had it all to ourselves with 12 friends. He was easy to deal with and very welcoming when we arrived. We'd paid an extra 50 euros for unlimited wine, gin etc which was superb and we also got a plate of bread and cheese to munch on. The trip lasted nearly 2.5 hours and although there was no sun it was still a fantastic memorable experience which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend if you are having a special occasion with a few friends and want the privacy/intimacy of your own 'venue'. You can hook up your iPod to the sound system and Ricardo will let you steer the boat too if you wish. Book it now!

End of year 2011 (between Christmas and Sylvester) once again we was at Lisbon for a week. Because I like sailing and question Ricardo by E-mail for a spontaneous opportunity. He promptly offered us a trip.

The trip was excellent organized. The yacht Moonfleet is in a good shape. The wind was a little bit weak, but isn’t in shippers responsibility ;-)

Ricardo guided us excellent. He has a wide range of knowledge about Lisbon, the history and present time. We are very pleased and will return, definitely.

Great Charter provided from Marlin Boat Tours, very accommodating and thorough teaching us there fishing tecniques. They were great we were bit sea sick but our own fault as too much to drink the night before. Stupid. Will definetly go on another Charter with them next time in Portugal this summer. Cheers.
