Do I have to book activities in advance?

Generally, we recommend booking at least a week in advance so that we can organise your activity according to your schedule. For boat trips to the Cies and Ons Islands we need to know the number of participants at least 3 weeks in advance. This is due to registration requirement from the regional government as they monitor the number of visitors to the Islands
