What to Expect
Have an unforgetable and unique experience aboard a non poluent electro-solar powered boat! 
Imagine yourself on a boat so silent that you can only hear the laughter of the passing water and the waves on the shore. A boat that doesn't travel on a cloud of exhaust gases. A boat that harvests its own fuel from the Sun, while traveling and swaying at its mooring. A boat that honors the traditions, watches over the future and has no pollution impact on nature... Welcome aboard! 
This boat tour is fantastic if you're looking for a different and original experience, with lots of comfort and fun, and is great for couples, families and groups (up to 11 people). 
On this tour we will share with you the rich history and secrets of the Arade River, Relax with music aboard and, if you wish, take a refreshing Swim.

For centuries, the Arade was the scenery of important merchant trades and was sailed by many cultures: Phoenicians, Romans, Vikings, Moors, among others.
