The fantastic trip, punctual and comfortable. We were 4 people and they gave us 2 bottles of wine and 3 trays of mussels. The explanation about the punt has been extremely funny. The content of the guide is super useful and allows you to know how its estuaries work, especially the Arousa estuary.

The truth is that I bought it online looking at other evaluations of other passengers, saying that it was a great success, rush hour departure, a very good service, wine and mussels, water and soft drinks on request…. A wonderful walk and a very good explanation of the rafts. Recommended %

Cuando llegamos nos acercamos a las taquillas para recoger el billete, una vez llegado al embarque rápidamente subimos al catamarán. Nos tocó una mesa grande y al ser dos estuvimos muy cómodos. Te cuentan el funcionamiento y proceso de cultivo del mejillón y mientras tanto puedes probarlos con vino blanco. Estaba todo muy bueno y el trato por parte de la tripulación fue excepcional. Lo recomendamos como actividad distinta que hacer en un viaje de vacaciones.
