Full description
Enjoy a boat tour that gives you the opportunity to visit the port, coastline, and beaches of Barcelona. This experience is the perfect activity for children, as it is a unique opportunity to enjoy nature and different views of the city while allowing you to discover all of its emblematic monuments, the symbols of the culture of Barcelona. With the 60-minute tour - the Skyline and Beaches Ride - the ship will sail from the Portal de la Pau (next to the DrassanesOpier, under the Colón monument), and travel for 9 miles. Sail along the coast of Barcelona and showcasing the main buildings that make up the city skyline. Alternatively, choose the 40-minute cruise on a classic wooden boat around Barcelona Port and take in the iconic monuments and landmarks of Barcelona from a different perspective. Some of the highlights of the tour include the Maremagnum Commercial Center, the Clock Tower, and the Sideroploide – an abstract sculpture made with recovered iron from the sea. Enjoy great views of the castle and Montjuïc Mountain, the lighthouse dating from 1906 (and still in use), and the W Hotel.

Hello lucky people who are going to take this cruise...We had booked the activity the day before but when we are on vacation, we no longer have the notion of time...We called the same day to explain the situation, the he team suggested that we come at the following times... We pass under the Mount Fujic cable car... We see in the distance a small castle built thanks to horses and donkeys, no road at the time... We were as close as possible to the cruise ships, a city on the water...the giants of the seas...and we have a view of Cristobal Colomb Square and La Rambla Del Mar, magnificent... Invigorating to smell the iodine ... really to do ...

We went on the 6pm one for 1 hiur so it was cooler than earlier. We were late but we still got on it as they wait for enough customers before leaving. The ride itself was as expected. I have been in similar boat cruises in other countries and this one was a lot calmer and it had a good bar with beer, drinks, snacks, ice cream. You can sit on the top (most people go) or for a bit more me time can sit downstairs or explore the boat. Would recommend. Good for kids too.

The experience was very nice. My 11 year old son was really excited and he enjoyed seeing the big ships near Barcelona's harbour. We booked the trip online, the price was very ok. Once you get to the meeting point, you have to go to the ticket office first, to receive an actual ticket to be able to go on board. You can buy something to drink during the cruise, if you want to. The views are spectacular. We recommed the trip.
