Know More about this tour

Make your own way to the Port Olympic in Barcelona and meet your professional skipper, who serves as your instructor, and the rest of your small group.

Then, depending on whether you’re a beginner, have some sailing experience or are more advanced — your skipper will assign you to a class. You’ll then enjoy your lesson with a maximum of five participants, all with a similar level of experience.

Put on your life jacket and step aboard your sleek, modern vessel — a 26-foot (8-meter) J80 sailboat. Then, listen as your skipper gives a short safety briefing and explains the main training procedures.

Next, set sail onto the open Mediterranean, cutting through the waves and enjoying the views of Barcelona, including the spires of La Sagrada Familia, from the water.

Spend the next three hours picking up new skills or honing your sailing techniques. If you’re a beginner, be introduced to the basics of steering, ropework and safety, and if you're experienced, learn how to refine your skills, correct weaknesses and build your mastery of boat handling, points of sail and trimming the sails.

Your skipper will allocate different tasks in rotation to you and your fellow sailors, so the experience is varied, challenging and team-based.

Admire the stunning backdrop of Barcelona’s skyline as you sail and feel the thrill as you develop your skills and experience hands-on command of the boat.

After cruising past the city and further along the coast, sail back to the marina. Your experience ends when you leave the boat and say goodbye to your skipper and sailing companions.

  • Had a great day the captain was really helpful and answered all my question, highly recommended.

  • The boat was modern and well kept. Our guide was very friendly and he gave us the opportunity to help him sail. Our teenager girls enjoyed it a lot. Unfortunately we expected a sunnier day but it was fun anyway.
