Big Blue Dolphin: Arrábida Natural Park (With Dolphin Watch Cruise)

Meet your Around Lisbon guide at your local Lisbon hotel for your day trip to Arrábida National Park and Sesimbra. Hop aboard your air-conditioned minivan and cross the 25th of April Bridge (Ponte 25 de Abril), often compared to the Golden Gate bridge of San Francisco. " Drive about 40 minutes and arrive at the stunningly green Arrábida Natural Park. Traverse this park while learning from your Around Lisbon guide the history of this protected region. Continue to the golden sands of Albufeira Lagoon (Lagoa de Albufeira) and watch windsurfers and marine birds swirl in its waters. Cruise onward to the beautiful cliffs of Cabo Espichel (Cape Espichel). Here, hop out to see Santuário de Nossa Senhora do Cabo Espichel, a 600-year-old religious site where pilgrims gathered to honor Our Lady of the Cape. Then, snap some clifftop panoramic shots of the stunning Atlantic coast. Next, drive to the charming seaside town of Sesimbra, where local fishermen haul in fresh catches from the ocean. Stroll to the Moorish castle and discover its medieval roots. Journey through Arrábida Natural Park to Setúbal and stop for lunch (own expense). Afterwards rejoin with your Around Lisbon guide and sail off on your 3-hour dolphin cruise and step aboard an extravagant catamaran and enjoy live commentary as you search the Sado river estuary for the local bottlenose dolphin community. After an adventurous day ride back to your Lisbon hotel where this tour ends."
