Note - the Halcyon is moored in the Alcantara docks near a deserted small building named Lisboa Vista del Tejo. Taxi drivers often know this building (ours did), making it easier for them to take you there. Otherwise they are quite close to the turning bridge - and skipper Luis will come to look for you on his bicycle, too.
Best way to book is to call Luis on his mobile. He speaks English very well.
The Halcyon is a lovely old sailing ship with an authentic Dutch labeled barometer in the cabin. Luis and his sons take your party of up to eight people on a terrific sunset cruise on the Tejo river along all the landmarks from the tower of Belem to the Praca do Comercio. The drinks and nibbles provided are adequate but could perhaps be slightly more refined. Sitting in the sun on the deck with a beer riding the waves is unbeatable though.
Afterwards we were brought by Luis to his favorite nearby restaurant for dinner. This was a success as well.
