Les 10 meilleurs voyages en bateau et tours à la voile à Barcelone


28 Aug 2019 | Dernière mise à jour: 23 Dec 2020

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.

Superbes vues et capitaine amical

C’était notre premier matin à Barcelone après une semaine de voyages. C’était bien beau de sortir sur l’eau et de voir cette belle ville d’un point de vue unique. Donc, se détendre juste être sur l’eau. Ma copine et moi avions le bateau pour nous-mêmes et Dave nous a donné l’espace pour profiter de la compagnie de l’autre. Il était toujours disponible pour répondre à toutes les questions, mais ne s’est pas immiscé. Nous nous sommes arrêtés pour une courte baignade et l’eau était agréable et rafraîchissante. J’ai imprimé la carte du site Web de Dave et je l’ai remise à notre chauffeur de taxi. Il nous a déposés à moins de 3 minutes du bateau. Super facile d’accès.

Croisière au coucher du soleil

Notre groupe de 7 a pris la croisière au coucher du soleil avec notre skipper Stefan. Nous avons eu une expérience très agréable, même si la majorité d’entre nous souffraient du mal de mer ! Nous avons pu apporter notre propre nourriture, boisson et même de la musique via l’installation bluetooth fourni. Le prix de ce voyage par rapport à très favorablement avec d’autres et c’est une autre raison pour laquelle je recommanderais cette expérience.

Grand voyage sur un beau bateau

Nous avons passé un excellent voyage avec Dave alors qu’il était à Barcelone récemment. L’eau était un peu choppier que d’habitude, donc pas l’occasion de nager, mais c’est clairement hors des mains skippers, rien à redire du tout là-bas. Par une journée plus calme, ce serait à peu près la meilleure façon de passer un après-midi, se rafraîchir du soleil d’août. Pas votre voyage habituel à la voile tous les jours et d’autant mieux pour elle! Tout le meilleur pour l’avenir de votre entreprise Dave.

Très professionnel

Nous avons récemment réservé cette visite. Le processus était extrêmement propre et facile. Nous avons fait un dépôt et nous avons eu confirmation instantanément. Nous avons contacté le capitaine tout au long du processus et il nous a toujours rappelé rapidement. Malheureusement, le jour où le voyage était prévu, le temps était assez mauvais. Nous avons contacté le capitaine ~ 1 heure avant et informé de nos préoccupations météorologiques. Le capitaine est revenu nous voir et nous a donné la possibilité d’annuler. Nous avons malheureusement annulé et n’a pas pu reprogrammer car c’était notre dernier jour (il nous a proposé de reporter pour le lendemain soir). J’ai eu une confirmation de l’annulation et le remboursement en quelques minutes. J’ai proposé de lui faire garder le dépôt en raison de se sentir mal et il a refusé d’accepter. Si nous sommes de retour en ville, nous réessayerons.

NAVIGATION HEUREUSE

Si vous voulez faire de la voile pendant quelques heures sur un voilier des années 1940, faites-le. Je suis tombé sur un autre fournisseur avec de bonnes critiques, mais c’était un catamaran moderne qui ne m’intéressait pas.
