The boat trip on the channel is waste of time. You only sail in a very small area in some closed channels. This means that they turn the boat around 3 times, sailing the same route back. Take a walk instead in this beautiful town. Waste of 8€

This is a 45 min boat tour. The boat was fairly clean and the guide was funny. It started to rain and other boats offered passengers umbrellas. Ours offered us some blankets to cover our head. It was a funny and nice experience.

We were just getting info as wanted boat ride later. Seemed nice enough initially but then as we leaving guy said no follow me. We asked where, he said just follow me, once again we said where we don't want to ride yet, again he said no no just follow me. I find these sort of sales techniques very intimidating... More

8 Euros for each person, for about 45 minutes (more or less) beautiful and memorable. I recommend to all.

Aveiro reminded us on Friedrichstadt in Germany, many channls to go on. Our tour guid took us by chance only with us. Great views from the water, many explanations about the history and actual changes of the city. Made by Venice people (Friedrichstadt has been started by Dutch). Absolute recommentation!

Take a tour in one of the boats though the canals of the ria. You can see all the 6 bridges of the Ria. Good view of the old and new city. The moliceira is the old boat that bring algae from the bottom of the ria, now is a touristic boat.

Bright boats with colour and look for the religious and saucy designs all on the one boat. Tells you something about the culture i think . Trip lasts 45 mins. Some guides have better English than others but ours made an effort to explain with a written guide. 8 Euros. Enjoyed it.
