Welcome to PasseioFluvial.com

We are a company based in Viana do Castelo which began in 1985 with the boat lines. We created this way an alternative to crossing the Rio Lima, specifically between the Viana center and Cabedelo Beach. In 1987, with the acquisition of two new vessels, we extend our business to the river tours. These tours they summarized a distance of 3 hours upstream. Currently we itineraries with a shorter duration (40 minutes and 1h30). These tours is evidenced, apart from relaxing moment and scenic beauty, the pedagogical character that made over the years we worked with hundreds of schools and with the most diverse social institutions.
