Whether you're bringing your family to a private sunset tour, or you're a solo traveler joining the public tour, sailing through the Mediterranean is an adventure. Barcelona's skyline keeps you company as you relax, jump into the sea, and test out your sailing skills!
We meet in Barcelona's central Port Olimpic harbor and are greeted by our experienced captain. After boarding the 38-foot classic 70s sailboat and a quick safety briefing, we set off.
During our cruise, we provide beer, soft drinks, and water, unlimited for you to enjoy. To make the journey exactly how you want it, feel free to bring any food and music you like. Then just sit back and enjoy the sunshine, breeze, and waves below.
You can jump into the cooling water and go for a swim, or help the captain navigate the waves. Our sailing team is made up of dedicated, experienced professionals, and they will happily explain tips and tricks to you so you can test them out right on the sailboat!
Moving along Barcelona's coast is an exciting way of discovering the city's beauty. We see the iconic Montjuic and endless stunning coastal views from the water. We definitely recommend bringing a camera! And while the crew gives you privacy if you like, you can ask them about anything that catches your eye and you'd like to know more about. They know the city as well as they know the seas.
After 2.5 hours of sailing, we return to the port and say goodbye to the sea. This tour is a wonderful treat for families looking for a fun break on the water, as well as for friends and solo travelers looking to explore a different way.

It was the best experience! Our guide Borja, he was very friendly and helpful. The meeting point here (Plaza Antonio Lopez) is not where the meeting point is anymore, currently it’s in front of the casino (apparently outdoor hasn’t updated that). But after some messages we were in the van and heading to the beach. It was a very nice trip, Borja was very knowledgeable and patient when we struggled to keep our kayak going straight. He took us to the caves, we had a chance to jump from the rocks in the sea, then snorkeling. We saw different fish, egg fried jellyfish, an octopus and beautiful scenery. I am on the limit of the kayak weight and it was fine, also the vest fit really well. I would definitely do it again from this company - (escola de vela i kayak sant pol - costa brava) with their sturdy kayaks and helpful guides.

Great guide (Dilan). Good explanation what we should and should not do. Despite the size of the group, he paid attention to everyone. After the kayak and snorkeling we got a lunch; a fresh, half baguette with good and lots of toppings. The guide made pictures, can't wait to see them😉😊

I am so happy that I opted to do this off-beat /outside Barcelona activity .The hike from the beach ,along the cliffs was breathtaking with an unrestricted view of the Mediterranean Sea.I have no words to describe the calm and tranquil feeling that enveloped me to look out into the horizon.We had a chance to swim and refresh ourselves in a sample bay beach.Post that,we went snorkelling .I was very thrilled to unexpectedly bump into so many fish schools (not complaining of this traffic jam 😊).Needless to say,this experience was this amazing because of our guide Eduardo who led the way ,told us many trivia along the hike trail and let us enjoy in the water for as long as we wanted .I totally recommend this excursion if anyone wants a day to experience the Spanish beach life away from the city and get that awesome tan.

Really everything was fantastic and well organized. I loved our leader- Edu, and felt like he explained everything very clearly, but also succinctly. His kind leadership was evident when two women were struggling with their boat- he quickly tied the rest of us together and gave them a quick lesson- and soon they were integrated back into our group. We were a good size group and I felt like I got the attention I needed. The snorkeling was beautiful and the time at the end to hang out was nice too. The only thing I didn’t love was the food- I don’t eat ham and was overloaded on cheese and bread- but we had brought along food so it was fine. I would have liked paella or a salad. Thank you! Debbie

WOW, Amazing trip. Paco was a gem of a guide and we just loved how clean the water was on our trip there. Highly recommended. We swim a lot in NZ, and this was just as good to us as the coromandel. Thank you PACO we loved it all including the funny stories. G And R Braks

The trip really lives up to its reputation. We had an amazing time kayaking and snorkeling, the team was so friendly and helpful I can definitely call it a one of a kind experience. The service provided was exceptional and would definitely do it again when I am back in barcelona. Your service is highly appreciated and will be recommended to family and friends who visit barcelona and want to take part in such experiences. I want to thank you for your concern, and for your help with booking this trip. Kind regards, Hagar Rezk
