The Galician coast in summer is the ideal choice for those who like to enjoy the sea. Every year it is more common to find new visitors in the Rias Baixas, and we do not speak only of tourists. If you want to sail with dolphins on the Vigo estuary, keep reading.

More and more often we can see specimens never seen until now in the Galician coast, like whales, whales or lemon fish. But without a doubt the most loyal holidaymakers to the Rias Baixas are the dolphins: groups of up to 150 who are popularly known as ‘‘arroaces’ have been found populating our rivers.
