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..

My wife and I recently returned from a trip to Barcelona. On our arrival day in Europe, we usually like to do something that is low-impact and pleasant. A boat trip normally fits that bill. We took the 90 minute Golondrinas tour (15 euros each). Big mistake. The weather was a bit chilly but clear. The boat slogs up and... More

For the price of €7.50 each for 40mins of the harbour and port this was really good specially the cruise ships, the bar was pretty cheap also, BEWARE OF TWO TOURIST traps 1.

We had this tour as part of our rotten iventure card, and, like everything else associated with iventure, it was disappointing. No fault of the crew but the boat sails out and make a nice circle in the harbor with no commentary, audio, or anything else. Really just a big port. The bar is nice and the crew friendly and...

We took the 40 minute tour around the harbor and were more than happy with what you actually get to see, with the captain slowing down so you can take photos. A great way to see the harbor.

On a sunny day with calm sea this was a lovely trip in the port to see Montjiuc castle and the cruise ships in the port, then along past Barceloneta beach and port olimpic right along the coast. I was a little disappointed that there was no commentary pointing out important buildings of interest. There wasn't even a safety brief... More

My partner and I went on the 40 minute port tour which we both enjoyed. I've never seen a port in operation before so this was a plus for me and we saw some wonderful cruise liners.

for 90 minutes we just went on a sea drive. No information on the fantastic coast line you are visiting. Could do with giving some information on the history of it. Defo not worth the money and I wouldn't be recommending it to people.

Spent a lovely 1 1/2 hours on the cruise along Barcelona's shoreline. Just the relaxation I needed after several days of walking around the city. I bought a voucher online at home and exchanged it on the day for the time of my choosing. Very good value but I recommend boarding the boat as early as possible for a seat... More

We bought Barcelona card and this was a free attraction on the card. It lasted about 45. The staff was friendly. The views of the harbor and the yachts moored in the marina are great. The bought took us past some of the big cruise ships docked at the port. They were interesting.

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.
