Depart from Marina Vela

Get your sea legs ready and make your way to Marina Vela. Once you arrive at the port, your friendly skipper will be waiting to help you on board their luxury sailboat. Choose a seat and meet the rest of your new, seafaring friends. The boat can only accommodate 10 guests, so you’ll enjoy a wonderfully intimate, small-group experience.

Once everyone is ready, feel the ocean breeze as you set sail for a magical afternoon out on the water.

Take a Dip in the Water

After sailing about three or four miles offshore, your skipper will anchor the boat as you take in the tranquil atmosphere. If the weather is warm enough, now is your chance to take a dip in the calming waters of the Mediterranean. It’s one thing to admire the turquoise waters from afar, but nothing beats floating along these gentle waves. Enjoy a long, midday swim at your leisure as the friendly crew prepares your delicious meal.

Enjoy Snacks and Drinks

Once you’re ready, climb back on board and towel off just in time for a lovely, light meal. Classic Spanish snacks including olives, jamón, cheese and crisps will be provided. An open bar will also be arranged, where you can choose from your choice of cava, wine, beer, or soft drinks. Raise a glass with your newfound friends as you take in awe-inspiring coastal views, and cheers to a magical afternoon!

Take in Gorgeous Views of Barcelona’s Coastline

As your professional skipper slowly makes its way back to shore, continue admiring the enchanting views of Barcelona from afar. Your helpful crew will be happy to point out prominent landmarks and answer any questions you have about the city (or the sea). If you prefer to take it easy, feel free to close your eyes and soak in the gentle sea breeze, perhaps even sneaking in a little siesta!

After about 2 hours out at sea, your boat will dock back at Marina Vela. If you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to gorgeous views of the water, feel free to continue exploring the marina, or walk down to Barceloneta Beach.

Me and my 5 friends were in Barcelona for my friend's bachelorette party. We had the boat to ourselves besides the captain. We got plenty of champagne, snacks and got to enjoy the water. It was an awesome day!
