You can see the city from different point of view taking a boat ride!
Nice rides are avaliable also in Daugava river, where you can go with bigger boats.
Tooks about 1 hour!

Either you go by foot, following the curves of the channel, or enjoy a boat trip, this is a very pleasant experience in Summer.
In Autumn, a walk will take you through several parks, dressed in amber colours.
In Winter, the silver-white snow provides a dramatic contrast with the dark waters or ice.
In Spring, the bridges are a perfect place to watch the change of the seasons.

The Riga Canal is the setting for many water events in the city. During warmer weather (April - October), you can take a one-hour boat tour of the city on an electric launch, setting out near Bastion Hill, below the Stockmann shopping center, across the street from the Central Market or by Big Christopher on the Daugava River. You can also rent canoes or paddle boats. During the Riga Days celebrations, there were boat races on the river too.
