Tagus Estuary Birding Boat Trip, Portugal

Half-Day Birdwatching by Boat Trip in Tagus Estuary, Portugal

A half-day Tagus Estuary Birding Trip is a leisurely-paced boat trip available on request.  During this guided birdwatching trip in the Tagus Estuary, you will learn several facts about one of the most important wetlands in the Iberia Peninsula. Besides frequent sightings of birds of prey, the gulls, terns, herons, waders and shorebirds are spotted all year round, composing more than 29 different species. Several duck and goose species can also be sighted during the winter season.

We will take you on a birding adventure on the Tagus Estuary, where I, as an Ornithologist, will take you closer to special places that water or shorebirds use are shelters, feeding ground or breeding areas.

As a Marine Biology and traced my academic and professional steps with enthusiasm and as a nature Lover, I began gaining interest in Birding. I then engaged in a Marine Biodiversity and Conservation International Masters and created several birdwatching campaigns along with my Master fellows.

Our project on Nature Tourism provides alternative programmes where our guests are closer to nature departing from an urban environment. Diversifying the demands on boat trips in Lisbon is also part of your objectives.

My sailing experience allied to the wildlife interest allowed us to create this unique trip that some consider a wildlife perspective of Lisbon. Up to 2,5 hours, venture with us on an 8,5m RIB, with comfortable and safe conditions along with the secret birding spots in the Tagus Estuary.

SeaEO Tours has been certified by the Portuguese Tourism bureau with the Clean & Safe stamp. We are committed to preventing the Covid-19 outbreak, therefore we will disinfect the boats after each tour, wear face masks, disinfect all passenger's hands and avoid social contact. Safety First!

Tagus Estuary Birding Tour highlights include:

  • See Lisbon skyline from a different perspective along the Tagus river
  • An adventure experience on an open boat towards the extensive Tagus Estuary area, quiet and peaceful.
  • Search for wildlife so close to Lisbon on a memorable boat trip
  • Encounter migratory, resident and breeder bird species occurring in different seasons of the year
  • Enjoy the taste of a regional sweet wine while embracing nature

If you are several guests, you might want to consider doing the same trip, but in a private boat for your group, on request.
