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 took the 40 minutes harbor tour while in Barcelona recently. The day was blisteringly hot and the breeze from the water while on the boat was very welcome. The tour does exactly what it says on the tin, tour the harbour. At 7 euros each it isn't expensive but I would have gladly paid a little more to have... More

Took the 1.5 hour trip - nice trip along the coast to the Port Forum No commentary but we enjoyed sitting back in the sun and enjoying a sea breeze on a hot day . Worth the money - tip your hotel may have a discount code at their leaflet stand Easy to book online

Prior to this, we had subjected our daughter to nothing but churches and museums. Hardly interesting for the average teenager. If you have the Barcelona Card, you'll get a free 40-minute harbor cruise (normally about seven euros). Wanting to get our money's worth, and get out of the late-June heat for a little while, we climbed aboard. Keep in mind... More

Impulsively jumped on to this tour because we fancied a boat trip along the coast. Not cheap. We were told it was a tour and was about an hour and a half. Very disappointing; no commentary, no music, just out a fair way going to the outskirts of Barcelona, stopping, then returning!! Ok if you just want a ride on... More

Paid around €15 for a 90 minute trip and this seemed reasonable compared to other boat trips I have been on. It great to get some refreshing sea air and enjoy the views of the Barcelona beaches. As mentioned in the other reviews there was no guide but I didn't not expect one. On the day we took the boat,... More

We saw that boat trips were being taken from the Port Vell area, and decided it would be nice to have a seat in the sun, whilst viewing the coastline from the sea. Thought the boat trip at 7.2€ for 45 mins was good value but decided it would be well worth the rest. We sat in the sun on... More

You can walk down Las Ramblas to the port and beach, this is an inexpensive and nice trip...about 1.5 hours and about € 12 if you use coupons from hop on hop off book.

As far as seeing the city goes this is a waste of time but it is relaxing and the sea air is pleasant after the heat of the city. Recovery benefit rather that tourist benefit. Would be better with a commentary

The 40 minutes tour is the most interesting. The 90 minutes tour is the ferry back and forth to the other harbour. A nice way to cool down on a hot day.

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.
