Who we are?
Sailway was founded in 2005 as a promoter of nautical activities on the “Ría de Vigo” (Rías Baixas in Galicia). Its founders are ardent sea worshippers and began this project with the prime objective of bringing the sea closer to everyone whose desire it is to experience it, whilst teaching them how to enjoy it safely and respecting the local environment. Our base port is located in Vigo City Centre, which offers a wide range of amenities within easy reach. The navigation area of the “Rías Baixas” is a privileged stretch of calm waters where you can sail safely all year round. The highlight of this location is its incomparable beauty of the landscape and the majesty of the Cíes Islands (Maritime-Terrestrial National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia).
