Barcelona is situated on the coast so if you are lucky to be visiting this bustling city why not experience it in a fun and unique way?
Boat Trips from Barcelona
There are plenty of choices when it comes to boat and sailing trips around Barcelona, and here are some of the best:
For those who enjoy speed then an exciting speed boat tour may be ideal. The X-Max Speedboat tour is an adrenaline pumping ride that lets you see the skyline of Barcelona from the sea. As the name suggests the tour takes place at high speed. This is definitely not for the faint hearted!
For a more leisurely paced tour why not grab a ticket for Las Golondrinas harbour boat tour. You can choose the 35 minute sailing tour around the port of Barcelona which stays within the breakwater or you can choose the Port and Coast tour. This takes places on a sea-faring catamaran and takes passengers out into the open sea. This tour last two hours and is a wonderful way to see the coastline and experience the thrill of sailing too.
Catamaran Orsom is the largest sailing catamaran in Barcelona and you can book yourself a place on it. Cruises aboard this catamaran are fun, exciting and a great way to soak up some rays. The views of Barcelona are truly spectacular from out at sea. The catamaran is comfortable and stylish and there is even a bar on board. Some cruises include live music but best to check first.
When visiting this glorious city there is no better way to enjoy it than with a boat tour.
