We booked the Venus to go from Lisbon to Cascais but unfortunately the weather turned on us and we had to turn around half way there (it was the day after a hurricane!). Pedro couldn’t have been more accommodating and took us back towards Lisbon and gave us a tour around the more sheltered areas. In the end, we got more time on the boat and a lovely tour which more than made up for it. The boat is beautiful, and Pedro is a very experienced skipper (this was the first time he’d ever had to turn around and this was clearly outside of this control) as well as a genuinely lovely host offering great value for money. I’d recommend his boat / tours to anyone in Lisbon.

We (myself and my 3 kids) had an amazing time aboard Venus. Nuno and his Dad were a great crew. The trip was organised via email and whats app and Nuno was very responsive and we had great communication back and forth to tailor the trip to exactly what we needed. It felt very special that this was totally organised just for us and our needs.
On board the ship we were looked after very well, with drinks and snacks. We stopped near a beach and were even able to jump in the water for a little swim, with my youngest child being provided with a life vest for safety which was great!
Nuno's dad even took some videos and gave us this mini film at the end as a great memory to take with us.
We would highly recommend doing a trip on the Venus - it is was simply really special and something we will remember for a long long time.
Thanks Nuno and his Dad :)))

The cruise on the Tagus gives you a unique perspective of Lisbon that one cannot miss. We sailed at sunset, a group of 6 and we had a fantastic time!
Venus is for sure the most genuine Tagus river sailing tour you can choose! The owner is a very hearty Portuguese soul and most willing to make your trip a memorable one. He even sorted a guitar and played a Fado for us.
The catamaran Venus is a pleasant sailing vessel for a small bunch of friends (not more than 8 passengers but he will accept smaller groups as well)

Our group of 3 adults (myself, my husband, and our friend) had the most wonderful time with Luis and Luis! We did the two-day sail to Sesimbra and spent the night on the boat. The views, company, boat, and water were spectacular. Luis and Luis went above and beyond to show us a great time by cooking wonderful meals, sharing drinks with us, giving us our own fado concert, showing us around Sesimbra, and just being fun and the nicest guys! Our time with them aboard the Venus was certainly the highlight of our trip, and we hope to come back again. Thank you Luis and Luis!

The Tejo river and Lisbon/Cascais bay area is the perfect adventure excursion: you have wind but no waves, you see the beautiful coastline from Lisbon to Cascais, you swim in clear blue waters, you get fresh air while you relax and you have the most fantastic sunsets.

All of this in spacey comfort on a catamaran with private cabins, still without loosing the sailing sport feeling and with excellent service and enlightening conversations by a wise, friendly and safe crew.

If you are in Lisbon for more that a couple of days, don't miss this which will be the highlight of your holidays.

We live here and are still thrilled by surprise of new views and unexpected experiences, every time we book Venus for a day.

The truth is, we are huge fans of the boat and the crew.

We had a lovely day watching VOR In Shore Race. Luis and Luis are great hosts with lots of humor. They treated us with very good food, good wines and fantastic company.
