Come and enjoy a one hour boat ride on the calm waters of the Ría de Arousa with a guided tour while you discover how the cultivation of mussels, oysters and scallops works and enjoy a delicious tasting of steamed mussels and traditional wine from the Rías Baixas. Enjoy the Ría de Arousa, the largest of the five Galician estuaries, known as Rías Baixas. It is one of the most interesting environmental areas of Galicia. The bird life is rich and varied and, without a doubt, the Ría de Arousa is the richest in fish and seafood of all the estuaries, both for its cultivation and its fishing. The most important activity in these inland waters is the cultivation of mussels, oysters and scallops, which is already a typical tradition in this area. The cultivation is done in rafts. With this one-hour boat trip you will discover amazing landscapes and views of the seabed. The excursion is fully guided. Plenty of mussel tasting, drinks (white wine, soft drinks and water on request) and music to give the best to our customers. This excursion is worthwhile!

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 %
