What you'll do

Combine sailing along Barcelona's coastline with traditional snacks, drinks, and Spanish guitar music. You'll start by meeting your captain and boarding the luxury sailboat at Port Olímpic, just northwest of the city's waterfront Barceloneta neighborhood. After a quick briefing, you'll set sail and make your way down the city's coastline, enjoying views of Port Vell, several beaches, and landmarks like La Sagrada Família and Mt. Montjuïc. While cruising along the shore, you can relax, enjoy the scenery, learn a bit about sailing, and/or help the captain steer the boat. If the weather cooperates, you can also stop for a dip in the sea.

As the sun begins to sink into the sea, enjoy the sunset from the spacious, luxurious sundeck aboard the boat. Watch the city start its evening glow, with its unique skyline illuminated by the sun. Relax while sipping a chilled beverage, such as a glass of cava, beer, or soda, all accompanied by traditional Spanish tapas, like regional olives, cheese, and jamón. 

This is a wonderful experience if you're craving a romantic date with your partner, an exclusive evening with friends, or if you're interested in sailing or simply love being out on the water. Enjoy the unique views of Barcelona floating before you as you relax and unwind!
