Barcelona is a beautiful city in which it is highly recommended to take a boat tour and be able to enjoy the breeze and the Mediterranean Sea, the views of the city skyline from the sea and even swim and refresh yourself.

There are basically two types of boat tours in Barcelona. Below we will explain the characteristics of each one so that you can choose the one that suits you best.



Types of boat tours in Barcelona


In Barcelona we can differentiate private boat tours or shared boat tours.

Private boat tours

They are usually sailing tours and are ideal for groups of between 2 and 11 people although you can also do a custom tour for larger groups if you rent a catamaran.

The main advantage is that being private you can choose the route and you will receive the attention of the crew. You can decide if you want to swim in the sea, play your own music and for sure to be at your own pace with your family and friends.

Most private tours depart from Port olímpic.

Shared boat tours

These types of tours are carried out with large boats with great capacity. They usually fit up to 150 passengers depending on the type of boat and most leave from Port vell.

The advantage is that they are cheaper but on the contrary you will not be able to choose the route, you will not be able to swim in the sea and you will not have the intimacy that you have on a private tour.

These types of tours are the most suitable if your budget is tighter and you only want to have a view of Barcelona from the sea without great benefits and privacy.
