    Hi Graham, Thanks fort that info. The guide books don't give any info above the bridge, i want to go up as far as it is possible. Lookingg forward to seeeing you in the gluepot, though most of the liveaboards are fleeing to the coast over the next few weeks for a cool summer breeze.

My draft is 1.6M. Currently in Alcoutim.
    A nice peaceful anchorage on the other side of the river and a bit further up from Lisbon at Seixal.
    I draw 1.5m and anchored in between a trot of mooring buoys NW of Seixal at about 38 38.68N 09 06.52W

    Graham, Thanks for that, looks like I can go about 10 miles above the bridge to Villa Franac de Xira. I wondor if there are pontoons there or space for anchoring.

    Paulo, we've just been to Clube Naval for lunch and a guy I got chatting to says river navigable for approx 60 km as far as Valada, where there's a low bridge. Evidently some pontoons up the river and tide runs at about 2-3 kts but beware of nets in some areas. There's evidently a pilot book but no details. Graham.

    One of they guys on the moored boats started shouting at me when I anchored in more or less the same spot in August last summer, so I just went a bit further up the main channel passed all the moorings and anchored just after the channel leading to the Tagus yacht center splits off. Still plenty of water, no traffic and nobody bothered me.

    I saw people leaving their dinghy's at the big pontoon at Seixal, but I guess you have to pay for that. If it were me, I'd probably leave it on the beach to the east of the pontoon.

    There is a beach in Seixal west of the pontoon where people swim, but it looks like the best/most popular spot is on the end of the spit on the other side of the channel (to the north east) from Seixal.
