Ría de Bilbao & Bahía del Abra Tourist Boat

The crossing starts at the pier in Plaza Pío Baroja. The boat trip along the Ría de Bilbao estuary and the Abra Bay is carried out on board a traditional boat with indoor and outdoor seats so that you can enjoy a panoramic route along the Ría del Nervión.

During the journey, which takes approximately two and a half hours, you'll see locations including the Deusto Canal, the Portugalete Suspension Bridge, the town of Getxo and the fishing port of Santurtzi. Both in Bilbao and in Getxo, Portugalete or Santurtzi, you can go ashore to visit their main monuments at your leisure, as you can enjoy the tourist boat for 24 hours.

The ticket is valid for 24 hours. During this time you can get on and off the tourist boat as many times as you like and from any of the ports on the route (Bilbao, Getxo, Portugalete or Santurtzi).
