De 10 beste boottochten en zeiltochten in Barcelona


28 Aug 2019 | Laatste bijwerking: 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.

Wat een ervaring!

Mijn review is allang te laat! We zeilde op de Gemini met schipper Dave een paar maanden geleden, in september 2017. De hele ervaring, zeilen in een 80 jaar oude zeilboot langs de kust van Barcelona met goede vrienden was een ervaring die we allemaal zullen herinneren voor een lange tijd.

Geweldige reis!

Mijn vrouw en ik zeilde door de middag naar de avond. We zwom in de Middellandse Zee en keken naar de zonsondergang boven Barcelona. Het was een geweldige ervaring! Mooi en ontspannend. Kapitein Dave was geweldig. Hij is een eerste klasse schipper vol kennis en aangenaam gesprek, als je wilt. Als we terugkeren, plannen we een langere excursie op de Gimini met Captain Dave aan het roer.

Mooi zeil op een ongerepte dag... met een prachtige kapitein

Mijn familie genoten van ons zeil met Dave. De Gemini is een prachtige klassieke sloep, met een kapitein die charmant en boeiend is, en een geweldige gesprekspartner bleek te zijn... met ons en onze tiener zoon. Het zeil van vandaag was een van mijn favoriete avonturen die we in Spanje hebben gemaakt.

Geweldig zeil

Mijn vrouw en ik namen onlangs de Gemini uit met schipper Dave voor een zonsondergang zeil daar in Barcelona. De routebeschrijving naar de boot waren ter plaatse. Ik adviseer volledig uitgaan van Port Olimpic, want je bent in een hand in het open water. Het was een beetje schokkerig, maar Dave deed een uitstekende baan begeleiden van de boot terwijl mijn vrouw en ik hadden Cava en geroosterd naar de laatste aanblik van de avondzon gaan achter Montjuic. Perfecte manier om onze vakantie in Spanje te beëindigen.

Prachtig uitzicht op Barcelona

Had een geweldige zeiltocht met Capt. Dave. Hij was erg meegaand en we genoten van het gesprek toen we de kustlijn vaarden. De boot was zeer gemakkelijk te vinden in de grote jachthaven en het reserveringsproces was soepel. Bedankt Dave!

Uitstekende romantische excursie

Mijn verloofde © e en ik gingen op een cruise bij zonsondergang met David. Het was een ongelooflijke en gedenkwaardige ervaring. David was zeer gemakkelijk om te werken met en responsief op voorhand, het verstrekken van advies over wat te brengen. De werkelijke reis was fantastisch. Het was een beetje rotsachtig om te beginnen, wat typerend lijkt te zijn tijdens de vroege avond in Barcelona. We hebben een aantal anti-misselijkheid pillen genomen voordat we naar buiten gingen, dus we waren prima, maar ik zou dit aanraden voor iedereen die gevoelig is voor zeeziekte. Maar ongeveer halverwege het kalmeerde een ton. De zonsondergang zelf was onwerkelijk. Barcelona heeft geen geweldig uitzicht op de zonsondergang in de stad sinds de zon ondergaat over de bergen, maar op het water u alles zien. De reis was zo romantisch en is iets wat we altijd zullen onthouden.
