Les 10 meilleures excursions en bateau et traversées à Barcelone


28 Aug 2019 | Dernière mise à jour: 29 Aug 2019

Curated by Skipper Dave

Gemini is a beautiful and unique boat, but even I can admit there are times when a different boat would be more suitable. For one thing, Gemini is limited to 7 passengers. And for another, she is often booked up well in advance!

On this page you will find the best sailing trips and boat tours currently available in Barcelona. These are all highly professional, independent operators, English speaking, fascinating characters, personally known and totally recommended by Skipper Dave.

But first - due diligence

This is a personal bugbear of mine. The Airbnbs, Viators, GetYourGuides and all the rest of the faceless international tour-reselling middlemen of the world do nothing to ensure the safety standards of the suppliers they market. But they do everything to imply, without ever actually stating it as fact, that they have done so. They are, well, technically I suppose, they're not lying. But the sea is a serious place if things go wrong. They are knowingly and deliberately encouraging a misapprehension. Read the small print and see if I'm wrong. Buyer beware.

I have personally ensured that every boat on this page is licensed by the Barcelona Capitania. This license, which needs to be renewed annually, is a legal requirement for any boat operating commercially in these waters. As such, you can be reassured that every skipper is professionally qualified, every boat undergoes annual safety inspections, all required safety equipment is carried on board and is in date, and every business carries appropriate insurance.

It's impossible to obtain the operating license without all of these guarantees in place. The licence ("despatxo") from the Capitania is your guarantee of an operator's professionalism, and you should not be shy to ask to see the despatxo if you want to check for yourself. The licence must be carried on the boat at all times.

Adventure deep sea fishing

Man against beast, the thrill of the hunt, the roar of the engines and the fizz of cracking open another beer. When the fish hits the lure and you are physically connected through rod and reel and line to 50kg of wild, thrashing animal, everything else will disappear and you will be fully alive in the moment. This is what Hemingway was talking about!

And at the end of the day, you'll take your catch to a local beachside restaurant where they'll prepare it for you and you will taste something reserved for only the few - your very own wild-caught predator!

Email Dave to set up a day or half-day adventure deep sea fishing.

Merveilleux début de nos vacances!

J'ai voyagé en Espagne avec un groupe d'amis et nous avons commencé notre voyage par un après-midi à bord du Gemini! La journée n'aurait pas pu être plus parfaite météo-sage, et David a eu la gentillesse de magasiner pour nous pour nos boissons et munchies, car nous venions d'atterrir en Espagne et n'avait pas le temps de le faire nous-mêmes. Il a trouvé un endroit pour nous de sauter dans la mer pour se rafraîchir ....... et pour moi, c'était un chèque de plus sur ma liste de seau pour dire que j'ai nagé dans la Méditerranée! J'aurais aimé qu'on ait eu le temps à la fin de nos vacances de naviguer sur le Gemini une dernière fois! Merci pour une merveilleuse journée David!

Catamara 3

Nous avons réservé le catamaran pour 12 personnes, après une visite dans les deux ports de Barcelone, nous avons navigué plus loin et puis nous nous sommes arrêtés pour prendre un bain :D.

Belle matinée sur la mer

Un groupe de 5 d'entre nous a passé une belle 3,5 heures sur l'eau. Dave était vraiment sympathique et accueillant, nous a fait nous sentir en sécurité et laissez-nous apporter de la nourriture et des boissons à bord. Le vent était très faible ce matin-là, donc nous avons passé un peu de temps à sauter du bateau et nager. Toute l'expérience a été tellement plus de caractère que la plupart des autres excursions en bateau que j'ai été sur. HIGHLY recommandé.

Voyage merveilleusement relaxant, amical et instructif

Ma femme a réservé ce voyage - nous étions un groupe de 9 (3 familles apparentées) - Classic Sail a travaillé avec une autre organisation pour s'assurer que nous avons un bateau qui correspond à la taille de notre groupe. Il était clair que Dani avait choisi un skipper qui parlait couramment l'anglais, et était tout aussi originaire d'Espagne que possible! Bernardo était un excellent skipper - a parlé très bien de la culture et l'histoire de Barcelone et les bâtiments que nous avons pu voir que nous avons motorisé à partir de l'endroit où le bateau était ancré (Port Olympique). Il a également souligné quelques-uns des conseils de navigation qu'un marin accompli connaîtrait - les ondulations sur l'eau indiquant l'emplacement du vent, les récits près de la voile qu'il a utilisé pour suivre les changements de vent pour s'assurer que la voile était orientée à droite. Ce qui était incroyable, c'est la mesure dans laquelle il a été en mesure d'encourager notre fille cadette à se sentir en confiance en «aidant» à naviguer, quand nous étions en route dans l'eau bleue, retour à la rive. La plupart d'entre nous sommes entrés dans l'eau bleue pour nager un certain temps - et encore une fois, Bernardo avait les mots justes d'encouragement pour obtenir les timides dans l'eau. Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans l'eau cristalline, qui se préparait au premier contact, mais très confortable rapidement après, pas du tout chaud. Nous vous recommandons vivement ce voyage de 2,5 heures à la voile comme un excellent moyen de se détendre dans la Méditerranée!

Grande voile sur la Méditerranée pour un peu de paix et et le vent dans votre visage.

Dani était notre capitaine pour une grande voile sur leur monocoque de 40'. Nous avons eu un groupe de 7 avec beaucoup de place et nous avons apprécié un moteur autour et naviguer au coucher du soleil. Dani était un excellent guide, le bateau était en grande forme, et tout le monde a passé un très bon moment à descendre de la terre et obtenir un peu d'air salé dans nos systèmes.

Grand temps

Gemini est un navire merveilleux et Dave est un grand capitaine. Vous aurez un excellent après-midi surplombant Barcelone.
