Sail and Swim in crystal clear waters
Welcome to my sailboat. Sit, relax and enjoy the incredible perspective of Barcelona from the sea. We will start our sail from the Port Olimpic and navigate until near the coastline in order to show you the beauty of the city. You will have a chance to see Sagrada Familia, Torre Agbar, Tibidabo, Montjuic from the water! I'll teach you some basics of sailing to make you feel comfortable on board. On a hot summer day there is nothing better than feeling the sea breeze on your skin and driving a boat by yourself while making new friends from all over the world. When we will get to a special point with the best view possible, we’ll lower the sail and stop to swim in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean sea. Those of you who want to try the paddle board will do this and the others will just have a lot of fun with floating toys. After swimming, we will have an aperitif and a glass of cava to make your day in Barcelona even more wonderful. On the way back to the Port Olimpic you will lie on the wide cover of our boat to take a sunbath. The most important for me is to share good feelings with people: you are on vacation, and I want to convert this day into amazing memories that you will keep from Barcelona. This activity is suitable for kids, but you must let me know in advance. We also offer private celebrations.
