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.

When you're sick of trapsing around the Ramblas the best thing you can do is go for a cruise. The sea air and sea ions will freshen you up for another battle with the city. Cheap at 15 euros and very easy to find. It's near to the statue of Christopher Columbus ( 20 metres seaward). You get a fantastic... More

Very pleasant 45 minute boat ride. Perfect for getting shots of the city & monuments with the mountains in the background. Great views of World Trade Center, industrial shipping cranes, the sea wall, inner harbor & different types of ships also Mont Juic & the cable cars running from it. Relaxing, pretty smooth, not too choppy ride. They do come... More

4 of us friends fancied a boat ride so we went to the area where all the boats set off from, the first company we approached told us that they only did harbour tours this time of year so we ask at las Golondrinas where they said they did two length trips, one for an hour and a half for... More

A really nice 40 minute tour of the harbour, a short pleasant and relaxing tour of various points in the harbour and a close up look at the floating hotels, a must an a warm October day for a cooling sea breeze. caution in summer the harbour is a sun trap so put plenty of lotion on.

Trip cost 15 euros per person and lasted one and a half hours including a trip around the commercial/cruise port. Boat was lovely and clean and the beer on board was a reasonable price, 4 euros per pint I think. My main gripe with this trip was a total lack of commentary. Now I appreciate it is not possible to... More

We took the 1.5 hour boat trip on the spur of the moment. After a walk down the Ramblas and through Gothic Quarter it was nice to get out to sea and chill out for a bit. I was surprised how inexpensive it was (about 15 euros) and that was one of the reasons we decided to take it. It... More

Generally we like to go on a boat trip when on holiday and this trip around the harbour was very reasonably priced. Barcelona's harbour is probably not the most interesting part of the city - we did get to see a couple of large cruise ships and some very impressive private boats but there was no commentary and on the...

To begin with this trip was nice, the sun was shining and we were sat on the top deck looking out at the port and the Column of Columbus. Then the boat started moving. We had opted for the hour and a half tour. Which was far too long for what the tour consisted of. We went along the marina,... More

It's a tradition for us to take a boat trip on our travels when available. This one is one of the better priced trips, the staff were friendly and attentive. However, Barcelona has been called the city with its back to the water with a reason. It's just ugly from the sea, nothing awesome to see during the longer trip.... More
