The adventure of going by boat to Cíes

What you read, not to brag, but going by boat to Cíes is amazing since we set sail and not only when you get off the boat and feel the sand on your feet. The crossing itself is a rare experience for most visitors.

The boats of our shipping company are new and very comfortable, which makes sailing an adventure to enjoy every second, even for people who are not used to the waves.

It is true that not everyone likes to go by boat, but we who go every day assure you that this cannot be a reason to miss this landscape. Sometimes a previous bad experience aboard a small boat makes them give up a whole world of experiences on board. We are only going to give you three reasons and we are sure we will convince you.


Pay attention to the 3 reasons to enjoy the boat trip to Cíes!

  1. Have you ever seen dolphins in the Atlantic? If the answer is no, surely it is because you have not gone by boat to Cíes. On the upper deck of the catamarans you can enjoy this view relatively often. In 2018, this news item stated that in the surroundings of the Cíes Islands archipelago there are more than 3,000 dolphins, or at least these are all the ones that were seen that summer.
  2. When the sun goes down. If your trip coincides with the sunset, at dusk, you are privileged. Seeing a sunset is always something spectacular, seeing it at sea is incredible, but if you see it on the boat going to Cíes you can’t even imagine it. If you’re a fan of sunsets, like me, you’ll love this.
  3. A view that leaves you speechless. Going by boat to Cíes is like feeling that you are getting closer to paradise and the landscape gradually shows it to you. This is what you are assured of if you go by boat to Cíes, the scenery only gets better. The Cíes Islands can be seen from the mainland, in Vigo. Its silhouette is popular and known to be appreciated from different places and viewpoints of the city. That is why approaching them is a way of approaching a known landscape but improving it gradually. A delight.
