SIRENS S.A.Over 100 years in the port of BarcelonaSirens S.A. is an experienced sailor and proud heritage that for over a hundred years gives those who want the most attractive and intriguing views of Barcelona from a beautiful perspective, the Mediterranean. The company began its journey Swallows in 1888, coinciding with the World Expo in Barcelona, the end of the Rambla and the construction of the monument to Columbus.Swallows have been, since then, an exceptional witness of the dramatic changes experienced by the port and Barcelona in general.The activity began with three swallows calls Omnibus I, II and Omnibus Omnibus III, which ran on steam. They ran from the Portal de la Pau to Barceloneta (Banys de Sant Sebastia).Over the years, the company consolidated and progressively swallows many locals used as a means of transportation to the Baths.During the Civil War, the company was closed. Then he resumed his activity.With the first extension of the port, Las Golondrinas expanded its fleet and route. Was maintained Banys route to Sant Sebastia and started a new to the breakwater. Over the years and the removal of trams "gardener", was also deleted the line bathrooms. The line of the breakwater has lasted until today and has allowed many citizens had their baptism of sea in our boats.After the Olympic Games in 1992, opened a new route: Las Golondrinas harbor and coastline itinerary that allows des seafront view of the sea. To this end a new ships were built, the catamaran type, called Trimar and buses.In 2009 we added a new ship to Las Golondrinas: Antina G.SIRENAS S.A.

We had a 40 minute boat trip along the coast - the 90 minute trip only runs in high season. It's reasonable at just over 7 euros - not particularly scenic as it just goes back and to along the harbour but a nice little boat ride nonetheless. We had an elderly gent come on board and play his accordion... More

We went on the 40 minute trip and it just circles the harbour it's very boring. on board the boat an old man started playing the accordion which was very uncomfortable, awful and unnecessary then came around to collect money off of all the passengers when he had played his one song. We found the trip very dull and boring... More

The Boat was very comfortable and the tour of the Harbor was great. This allows you to get a great view of the wonderful city of Barcelona.

I met up with a few friends who were visiting Barcelona for two days, so their time was limited - this boat tour proved to be a good low cost option. We chose the 40 minute tour, bought a couple beers from one of the vendors nearby the ticket stand and enjoyed a delightful and scenic happy hour with dear... More

This time I didn't purchase the ticket online, but had no problem buying it before the trip. I took the shorter trip around the Port and enjoyed it very much. For me the fact that there was no guide was an advantage as during the whole trip I was relaxing by watching and catching the sea breeze. In my opinion... More

We took the 90 min trip and appreciated the views from Barcelona from the sea. Do note that the boat goes very slowly and if the sea is a bit rough you might want to take a pill for sea sickness. If it is a sunny day the upper deck feels up very quickly so get there early. We took... More

We were in Barcelona just last week, and the 4 of us decided that a harbor tour would be wonderful. The day was pretty, the water was beautiful, the harbor was inviting, and we couldn't wait to get a "sea view" of Barcelona. We did the 40 minute tour for 7 Euros each. What a waste of our time and... More

We took the 90 minute trip and it was a total waste of money. You can see more and in better comfort of the coastline by going on one the City Sightseeing buses. No welcome on board by the Captain or crew of the boat. No commentary of what you are seeing from the boat. No explanation as to the... More

The short trip (40') is only going around the harbour. nothing spectacular, but the long trip with newer boats connect the Maremagnum harbour with the Forum harbour. This offers the possibility to see the BCN Skyline from the sea. Simply spectacular.

We took the trip that was for 1½ hours so it cost €15 each. We chose a day that wasn't too hot so we could sit on the top deck. When we left the harbour the wind picked up and it was a very bumpy ride. Hard to photograph. Anyway what you get is a boat trip along the coast... More

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
