Book a trip on Samba, our Archambault Grand Surprise regatta sailboat

Our first sailboat is called Samba, we bought her in Spain in 2010, and she has sailed with over 3000 happy costumers in front of the Barcelona coast line.

In 2016 we decided to place an environmental friendly electric engine in Samba, making her the first commercial sailboat in Barcelona that is electrically driven. Samba will be solar powered, no more noise, no smell and super for the environment. Pure relaxation.

Sail boat from side view

Samba has raced in the northern Spain for two years. Won several regattas and then was put on the land by her previous owner. Samba is a regatta sailboat, 9.54 meter long and 2,92 meter wide at the beam. Sailing her is very easy, she responds very fast on movements and is joy to sail.

Samba is well suited to sail along the coast of Barcelona because she needs little wind. In the summer there is often little wind and when others turn on the engine we still enjoy a great sail.

Fun boat ride-a little choppy

Dave and his son Diego were great sailors and excellent guides and hosts on their lovely boat. Had great weather for as early in the season as it was. Seas were a bit choppy though, and would have been better had we followed Dave’s sound advice of taking Dramamine beforehand for a few of our group. Highly recommend the experience and the captain!

An Engagement Aboard the Gemini

The sailing experience with Dave and his son was fantastic. I proposed to my long-time girlfriend while aboard the Gemini. Dave helped make the moment special by sharing his love of sailing with us and by preparing cava for our celebration. I highly recommend sailing with Dave and the Gemini. Fantastic experience! *****

A lovely way to spent an afternoon!

The whole thing was very straightforward; we emailed Dave asking about certain time slots then reserved one on his website and paid a 30 Euro deposit. We arrived at the dock ahead of time and identified his boat. Dave himself was lovely and very interesting to talk to. It was a bit choppier than we would have liked but what a lovely way to cool down. It was very hot when we were there, about 30 degrees so we enjoyed the break on Dave's boat. All in all a good experience!

Relaxing 3 hours away from the buzz

Trip Highlight!!

We had a wonderful time!! Gorgeous views of the city and a fun time on the boat. We took all 5 of our kids ranging in age from 3-17 and everyone felt it was the best part of our trip. Would definitely recommend

Mediterranean Coastal Cruise

My daughter and I were stopping in Barcelona for the week for her Spring Break. We didn't know the city, or have any plans, so on the fly, we found this Sailboat cruise, signed up and went. It was very easy to book, very easy to find, and an enjoyable experience all around. Skipper Dave was super nice. He answered questions, and talked to us as needed, and also, allowed us to just chill on the front of the boat and enjoy the views. It was a great time, and if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy some peace and quiet with a great view, I highly recommend this trip.
