Nothing but praise for the man running the show (christophs?) a good way to spend a couple of hours in the sun in Riga, though I hear it's even better at night

Our group rented kayaks for an evening trip around the Daugava and through the canals. The boats/life jackets/paddles were in good repair, the staff were friendly and the pre trip briefing was clear and easy to understand. We received maps to help guide our way as we went on our own. I would rent from them again.

Instead, remember paddle boats... More

It seems that you know everything about the city you have lived in for 10 years, but no..... you can always find something new and cool... I have been in many places and I guess I haven't seen the possibility to see the city from the small boat. If you have adventurous and romantic heart, you have to try this...... More

But most of all I liked to watch peacefully how city was getting ready for working day. Such a buzz all around - like little ants they were all runnung somewhere. But we were... More

This trip was given to my wife as a birthday gift. It was a fun and relaxing activity to do together. A very cool date idea! A very romantic view of the city at night. Helpful and friendly staff person. We recommend it!

If you want to have full image of Riga You need even try one of now numerous boat (ship) trips. Even by channels or by Daugava it is gorgeous. Take a good camera with, there are lot of possibilities to make wonderful photos.

I have had already three different trips with Riga Boats and each time it was great experience and adventure. First time we saw Riga in night and enjoyed lights, romantic atmosphere and surprise how different RIga looks from water. Second time we saw Ķīpsala in night and were happy to get to know new parts of Riga - to see... More
