Doca de Santo Amaro, 1350-353 Lisboa
The meeting is located on the west side of Santo Amaro Dock (Doca de Santo Amaro), GATE 1. This is just bellow to the large red suspension bridge across Tagus river, the 25th April bridge. There is no mark or shop on the place as it’s not allowed to place advertisement in the area.
How to get here:
UBER is the easiest way, but count with traffic time in weekdays. Search for Lisbon Dolphins on the app. DO NOT go to Alcântara dock, for so reason guests using uber tend to end up in Alcântara dock, which is the neighbouring dock and is 15 min away by walk.
Public transportation is the cheapest way. Depending where you are, the route can take many forms.
From city centre or east side usually ends up going to Cais do Sodré (usually by metro/subway) and from there you have plenty of options:
- Bus 728 and 5 stops later, exit on Alcântara-Mar stop, go under the train line to the south/riverside. At arrival to the docks, head west towards the bridge, meeting point will be close to the last building.
- Train (Cascais Line) and 2 stops later exit on Alcântara-Mar station, go for the south/riverside exit. At arrival to the docks, head west towards the bridge, meeting point will be close to the last building.
- Shared bikes and scooters are the best option for door to door, but you need basic navigation skills. Follow the bike road, it’s quiet and straight forward.
From west side, the train (Cascais Line) usually is the best way. Exit on Alcântara-Mar station, go for the south exit. At arrival to the docks, head west towards the bridge, meeting point will be close to the last building.
Doca de Santo Amaro, has no restroom, it is closed due to the current pandemic. Do not count for a coffee place, as usually they open only at 10am. After the experience there is a good amount of places for lunch.
