The boat only permits up to 10 guests at most, so you’re in for a wonderfully intimate evening.

Watch the Sunset Over Barcelona

Once everyone is on board, it’s time to set sail! As your yacht departs the marina, feel the calming breeze of the sea against your skin. While the sun begins to set behind the city, admire Barcelona’s majestic skyline, complete with mountains in the distance. The coastline is made even more breathtaking as it’s blanketed in a golden glow from the sun.

Enjoy a Sunset Swim

Take your time enjoying an evening swim, then towel off just in time for drinks and tapas.

Raise a Glass!

After an invigorating dip in the water, fuel your appetite with a delicious spread of tapas. Classic Spanish snacks of olives, jamón, cheese and crisps will be provided, along with an open bar of cava, wine, beer, and soft drinks. Enjoy this delicious spread while raising a glass of your favorite beverage. Marvel at the glimmering lights of the city as you cheers with your newfound friends.

Try Dolphin Spotting

To make this evening even more spectacular, you may be lucky enough to be greeted by dolphins during your cruise! This is the time of day when they often retreat to shallower water for the night, so be sure to keep an eye out! Your helpful crew and friendly skipper will also be on the lookout and will point out any fins in the distance.

Once the sun has fully set, your charter yacht will slowly make its way back to the port. Once you’re back on dry land, feel free to continue the enchanting evening by dining in the lively area surrounding Marina Vela.
