taxis from Setubal marina to lisbon

does any one know how easy it is to get a taxis at the setubal marina to Lisbon center? We are planning to take a dolphin watching tour that finishes about 17:30 -18:00 and looking for a way back to Lisbon, was wondering if taxis are readily available at the marina and about how much it would cost? thanks

You'll make a taxi driver very happy!! A ride Setubal-Lisboa and return... it will be more than 100€. There's not a "formal" marina at Setúbal it's more a pier, I suppose that there are no taxis there, but do you know that a train does the connection between Lisbon and Setúbal till very late? It's Fertagus and, on weekdays, the last one departs after midnight and on weekends close to 11pm http://www.fertagus.pt/ing/fertagus

hello there, thank you for your information, so I gather there is no taxis around the Setubal marina/pier. and costly 50-60 euro one way. is the train station close to the marina/pier? walking distant? able to purchase tickets right at the station? I was looking forward to taking the dolphin tour, but get there and back seem a bit harder than I anticipated

If you are in Lisboa go to one of the following train stations (Entrecampos or Sete Rios), take the train from Fertagus to Setúbal, you buy the ticket at the ticket offices, last stop is Setúbal. The train station is far from the pier, take a taxi to go there, when returning do the same. The pier is close to the ferry to Tróia, you'll get a taxi somehow. Or book a transfer to Setúbal (depending on how many people are going it may not be so expensive) or ask the company that does the "dolphin tour" if they have a transfer/pick up service.

The train ticket is €9.70 round trip. These are commuter trains like the SEPTA trains in Philadelphia, so you buy your tickets at the station on the day.

The train trip takes about 1 hour.
