Bilbao Boat Tour

  • The activity takes place with an audioguide in English. English
  • 2 hours

Embark on this boat trip along the Ría de Bilbao. You'll be able to enjoy the wonders of Bilbao from a fun and new perspective, finishing off by the charming town of Portugalete - all aboard!

Bilbao Boat Tour

At 10:30 am, we'll set off from our meeting point in Plaza Pío Baroja to embark on a boat ride across the Ría de Bilbao to Portugalete. 

As soon as we get on board, we'll give you an audio guide so that you can listen to fun facts about the history of these Basque municipalities. As we sail along, you'll be surrounded by wonderful century-old architecture, the university buildings, the Paseo de la Memoria and the stunning Guggenheim Museum.

We'll get closer to the sea as we leave the centre of Bilbao and Baracaldo behind. We'll then pass by Portugalete and enjoy some of the monuments from the boat, such as the Evaristo de Churruca or the small Rialia Museum. 

Finally, we'll arrive at the well-known Vizcaya Bridge, located next to the fishing port of Guecho. Look at it, you'll have wonderful views of the Cantabrian Sea in front of you! 

At 12:30 am we'll conclude the experience at the starting point of Bilbao. 


The boat is a catamaran with a capacity for 79 people. It has two floors: a covered one at the bottom and an open one at the top.
