Set sail for a day of relaxation, adventure, and fun during this 2-hour, small-group Mediterranean sailing excursion from Barcelona. Cruise the gorgeous coast near this Catalan capital aboard a 40-foot (12m) yacht, learning some sailing skills or just relaxing in the sun during your ride.
Meet your boat at the Port Vell Marina in Barcelona. Choose your departure time from among a range of options, which will depend on the time of year for your cruise. Listen to a short safety briefing from your skipper, along with an introduction to sailing, then cast off for a fun-filled day on the water.
Skirt the coast of Barcelona, enjoying fantastic views of the city’s one-of-a-kind skyline that blends both medieval and modern structures. You’ll be able to spot the city’s famous La Sagrada Familia cathedral, as well as the Port Olympic, Montjuïc hill, Barcelona Cathedral, and Barceloneta Beach.
During your ride, you’ll also have the chance to test your sailing skills. Join your skipper to hoist the sails, take the helm (steer), and trim the main. Or just kick back and relax, taking a seat on deck to sunbathe or grabbing a spot in the comfortable cockpit.
As you leave the coast behind, navigate out into the open waters of the Mediterranean for more cruising. Feel the warm kiss of the sun and gentle caress of the breeze on your skin, admiring the glow of the light as it shines on the ship’s hull. Assuming the weather is calm enough, you’ll also have the rare chance to enjoy a swim in the open ocean.
If you start feeling hungry or thirsty, savor a glass of chilled cava (sparkling wine), beer, or a soft drink accompanied by almonds and fresh olives as you return toward Barcelona Port (weather permitting). For those on boat trips leaving at 2:30pm, 4pm, or 5:45pm you’ll also get to enjoy fantastic vistas of the Barcelona skyline at sunset as you enjoy your snacks. If the weather is bad on the day of your sail, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a drink and snacks at a local bar when you return to port.
Please note: the sailing itinerary is subject to change depending on wind conditions.
