Your LivTours Private Boat Tour of Barcelona starts with your skipper meeting you at the Olympic Port a little before your scheduled departure and will accompany you to the correct dock. Once onboard, your private skipper will set sail as you sit back, enjoy the views of Barcelona slipping into the background as you take to the high seas while sipping a glass of cava. This is the perfect way to slip into complete relaxation with the sea breeze in your hair and the warm sun on your face. In no time at all, you will be admiring one of the most unique perspectives of Barcelona that most visitors, or locals, do not get a chance to enjoy.

Relax to the gentle rhythm and flow of the sailboat on the water, take a few snapshots of the skyline and horizon to share your experience with friends back home, or enjoy a bit of sunbathing on the deck of your own private boat!

A few of the sites you will get to see as you sail away are the Mapfre Tower, Hotel Arts, and the home of Barcelona’s main supercomputer, the Mare Nostrum building which is a modern marvel in architecture.

Ready for some adventure? Your private skipper knows the best swimming spots on the Barcelona coast. Your skipper will drop anchor and give you time to dive into the cool turquoise waters of the Mediterranean for a refreshing dip. With over 700 species of fish and over 20 species of marine mammals, why not grab a snorkel mask and get acquainted with some of them!

If laying back and enjoying the ride is not enough (or too much!) for you, the skipper is happy to have you actively participate in sailing this 10 meter by 3-meter regatta sailboat by teaching you how to set sail, the rules of the road, wind direction, and, most ​importantly, steering.

As you glide along the coastline in your private boat, your expert skipper will point out points of interest along Barcelona’s urban landscape, the importance of the sea in everyday life, as well as other amusing anecdotes.


  • Bi-lingual Skipper
  • 10 meter regatta sailboat
  • Sailing tips, if interested
  • Snacks & Drinks on board
  • Snorkeling equipment and towels
  • Swimming opportunities

  • We never sail if it is too dangerous or uncomfortable (choppy waves) for you to enjoy your time on the water.
  • It is advised to bring layers – even in the summer – as it can get chilly on the water, as well as plenty of sunscreen, and a swimsuit.
  • Plan on arriving at the port at least 15 minutes in advance of your sailing time.
