Meet Iñaki Markuerkiaga who will be your cheerful captain. Originally from Ondarroa, a seaside town of Bizkaia, Iñaki has always shared close ties to nature and the sea. He enjoys sharing tales about the history, culture and natural environment of Urdaibai with everyone he meets

The Urdaibai estuary is a protected area in the Biosphere Reserve of Bizkaia. Here the Oca river meets the sea after winding it’s way down the Oiz mountain. The natural setting is filled with lush green meadows, framed by distant mountains, beaches and breathtaking ocean views.

One of the most important marsh wetland areas on the Iberian peninsula, Urdaibai is a quintessential natural habitat for a variety of flora and fauna, including migrating and resident birds. This guided boat tour will take you along the beaches, cliffs, islands, sand dunes, parks and historic houses of the area. During the excursion your guide will explain the history of the landscape and the evolution of Basque people who have inhabited this region since prehistoric times. Caretakers of the land, Basque people have a close natural, economic and spiritual tie to their land.

The boat tour will offer locals and visitors an opportunity to visit first-hand the beauty of Urdaibai and the importance of preserving this natural environment.

Visits to the estuary are strictly controlled to protect the natural environment and only small excursions are allowed into the estuary.
