  • Boat trip
  • Official guide of the Xunta de Galicia
  • Exclusive group


Our tour begins at the port of Cesantes where we will meet to take the boat that will take us to the San Simón and San Antón bay. After a 10-minute boat trip, the island guard will open the doors to us to discover the terrible stories that this small archipelago holds. Stories of pirates, where the famous privateer Francis Drake is located, movie battles like that of the Rande Bridge, the fearsome stories of a lazaretto and finally, a concentration camp that will give you goosebumps by putting you in the skin of the who suffered it. All this, surrounded by a dreamlike landscape and nuanced with the incredible adventures of Captain Nemo that are represented there. We will finish our tour of Thought Island, leaving and letting the stories we have just heard rest with a boat ride around the island, and after three and a half hours of travel we will return to our starting point. Are you coming to feel the excitement? A unique excursion with an exclusive group that will leave you fascinated and make you fall in love even more with this land of Meigas.
