RIB ride in the ria; see the sights and nature from the sea

Would you like to escape into the sea to see this beautiful part of Galicia from a different perspective? 

Then come with us and we'll go for one of the Best Boat Trips in Portonovo around the ria, enjoying the sights and nature as well as the local fishing villages, such as Combarro, from the sea.

You will see the little islands of Tambo and San Clemente en route, as well as taking in the views of the various beaches, and the mussel beds where the local seafood is grown.

We leave from the port of Portonovo (we can also pick you up from Sanxenxo if required) and we work our way around the ria, by Raxo, Combarro, Marin, Tambo, Aguete and San Clemente.

And, whilst we can't guarantee it (of course), you might be lucky and see the dolphins that inhabit the area, and if not, certainly the Cormorans, for the bird watchers among you.

*If you prefer, pay 5 extra per person and choose the Ria of Aldan, a more undiscovered stretch, where you can explore the beautiful coves and, if you like, take a dip in the crystal clear waters.

Duration: About 1.5 hours including embarking and disembarking

Adults: 25 €*

*4 people minimum - if there are only two of you, you can opt to either pay a surcharge of 10€ per head and have the boat to yourselves, or contact us to see if we can get you onto a tour with another group

Guided tour of the stunning island of Ons

with a ride in the RIB of 1 hour

*Regular trips on Wednesdays but if you have a group we can try to arrange an additional tour. Contact us for details *

The national park of the Atlantic islands consists of Cies, Ons, Salvora and Cortegada. One of the wonders of the north-west Spanish coast, we are lucky enough to live next door to them. 

We offer a ride around the ria of Pontevedra taking in its sights and nature as well as two small islands, ahead of venturing out of the mouth of the ria and into the atlantic and culminating in a guided tour plus 2 hours to spare on the nearby paradisic island of Ons.

We leave from Portonovo (with the option of being picked up from Sanxenxo) and we take you on a great trip around the ria to see its sights; the mussel beds, the islands, the lovely beaches and fishing villages, as well as looking out for the possibility of seeing a few dolphins and cormorans (we can't promise on the dolphins but there are quite a few.

We will stop to take in the views (and get a few photos of course) before heading over to the paradise that is Ons, where you will disembark with a professional tour guide who will show you the sights and talk about the history and nature of the island. You then have 2 hours (pick up time can be agreed, but is subject to availability) to enjoy the escape of the desert island beach and visit the historic - but working - lighthouse, and of course try the fantastic fresh seafood - you should try the Octopus! 

You can get a quicker taxi ride to Ons by boat, but we're not about getting there quickly, we're all about enjoying the views from the sea, and the ride on the way there. And this way, you will be enjoying an experience in a boat, not just getting rom A to B.

Of course, we can only take this trip in favourable weather

Adults: 30€*

Minimum of 4 people required. If you are fewer than this, please contact us to see if we can get you on a trip with another group

*sorry, we cannot take kids of less than 6 years for insurance purposes

Visit the beautiful historic village of Combarro

We escape into the ria of Pontevedra, where we will explore the coast, its white sandy beaches, and its nature (we might even see some dolphins), as well as the island of Tambo and the mussel beds, ahead of dropping you off at the amazing village of Combarro (literally meaning, 'with mud') which has been named one of Spain's most beautiful villages.


This village is hidden away in the corner of the ria, and  has fascinating architecture from the 1700s. It is most noted for its coast lined with 'horreos' (or 'piornos' in Galician) which are stone-built buildings for storage of grain and vegetables, specific to Galicia.

The beautiful village has narrow streets lined with tiny ancient mariners' houses, now of course many of which are also occupied by cafes, bars and restaurants (where you can dine in style!).

There are also iconic crosses that hark back to the 18th century, a history of witchcraft, and even theories that here was born Christopher Columbus.

We will leave you in the village for 1 hour, after which we will complete our tour around the ria in the boat.

Duration: 3 hours

Price per person 30€*

*minimum of 4 people. If your group is smaller, you can either opt to pay a surcharge of 10€ per head, or contact us to see if we can get you on board with another group

Events, stags/hens, and more escapes

If you just want to go for a ride with your friends and hire the boat out, just ask. And if you just need a water taxi to take you somewhere, if we are free we will take you!
