What You'll Do
  • Sails from Getxo past cliffs, beaches, fishing villages, and sea life
  • Enjoy an experience full of nature, tradition, and unique places
  • Taste delicious wine from Rioja
Enjoy a 4-hour sailing tour through beaches and cliffs of extraordinary beauty in the Basque Country. Depart from the marina in Getxo to explore fishing ports and beautiful scenery before tasting wine from Rioja at the end of the tour.
What to Expect
You start your journey on the Estuary of Bilbao at Getxo Marina. You sail next to mansions of Neguri, reflecting the industrial might of the Altos Hornos de Vizcaya ironworks, shipbuilding, and small fishing ports such as Arriluze and Puerto Viejo de Algorta. You head north past the Arriluce and Galea levees before reaching the cliffs.

The mouth of the Bilbao River is bounded by 2 cliffs, over western and eastern Muskiz from La Galea to France. Both cliffs with their watchtowers served to discern in the distance the approach to the Port of Bilbao. The watchtowers were also used to spot whales in the 14th and 15th centuries, when whaling was a big industry.

Underneath the sea, the cliffs form a wide abyssal plain with a maximum depth of 2,789 meters. The walls of these underwater land forms are home to numerous species of fish and its waters are abundant in nutrients. In fact, this area is home to beautiful fish, tuna, sardines, and anchovies, as well as blue whale, fin whale, sperm whale, humpback whale, killer whale, beaked whale, and dolphins.

At the end of the boat ride you head back to the port, where you can enjoy tasting some excellent wine from Rioja.
