With plenty of space on her uncluttered deck, you can spread out and relax with friends and family. You won't be crowded into a small cockpit like on modern boats.

Ten minutes after stepping aboard, we'll hoist the sails, switch off the engine, and start sailing.

During your boat tour, we'll sail along the Barcelona coastline, enjoying a very different and spectacular view of the city. You can kick back and relax, or help with sailing the boat, just as you wish.

Morning, afternoon or sunset?

Mornings are reliably less windy, usually starting off very calm, with the breeze slowly building during our trip. This time of day is ideal for swimming off the boat and for enjoying a totally relaxed vibe. Sometimes we keep the motor running for the first hour but it's very rare for the entire morning to remain windless, so you can be pretty confident we'll get some nice sailing conditions in the second half of the trip.

By the afternoon, a lovely sea breeze develops almost every day, providing ideal conditions for sailing. We can often swim in the afternoons but if a chop does develop it might not be possible. Afternoons are best if you really want to enjoy some sailing.

Sunsets, of course, are very special, and incredibly romantic as well! Usually the wind drops and in high summer (August/September) it stays warm enough to enjoy a sunset swim off the boat a couple of miles out to sea - incredible! The rest of the year it does begin to get a bit cooler by the end of the afternoon.

Trips for larger groups

Gemini herself is limited to 7 passengers. For larger groups, I work with a local organisation of independent skippers to offer a range of activities and boats.

Together we have the resources and experience to manage private and corporate events of any size, formal or informal. We regularly organize regattas and teambuilding events. We can put 2 or 20 boats on the water, and we can provide boats large enough for up to 200 guests. We can provide all catering options and other shoreside facilities as required.
