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 did the hour and a half tour. Relaxing, nice. The only complaint is there was a strong fuel smell sitting in port and halfway through the tour, depending on the wind. Otherwise,very nice.

The day before my cruise, I took this short (90 min) tour with Las Golondrinas. It was a great way to see BCN from a different perspective, from the water! There are great views to see, time to relax, and it is not expensive. It is great fun, and you can see a lot of BCN's coastline. I definitely recommend... More

When ever travelling we enjoy viewing the landscape of the area from the water. This boat tour was lovely. It travels through the harbour and then along the coast were many of the cruise ships and notable land marks are very visible. This cruise was 1 1/2 hours and it flew by on a beautiful sunny day. What a wonderful... More

Enjoyed getting out on the water for the 40 minute harbour cruise. (I forgot to use the discount voucher in the book given by the hop-on-hop-off bus tour, so paid the full cost of Euros 7.50 each! But I think that was reasonable value compared to other trips I have been on elsewhere.) As others have said, there was no... More

40 minute cruise around the harbour. See the superyachts, cruise liners, cargo boats all up close. There's no commentary which is a good thing. It's just under 8 euros and a few less for kids. Definitely recommend it if you like seeing boats.

This 40 minute boat ride is free with the Barcelona card, I would probably not have paid had I not had the card. There is no commentary but it is a pleasant trip out to the docks where you see the shipping containers being loaded and the docking points for the huge cruise ships with everyone waving. It also goes... More

With a Barcelona card comes a free 40 minute boat tour of the harbor area, a very picturesque area where you view yachts you will never afford and cruise ships you are dying to board. It's a pleasant interlude in Barcelona, and the port area,is full of tourist shopping and an upscale mall. Just be sure to avoid the pickpockets.

I had one last day and Barcelona and was hoping to go out on the water. The company that I was interested in going out with was not available until the afternoon so I booked an earlier trip with this company. The ride was quiet and for 15 euros wasn't that bad but I expected some kind of commentary or... More

As a family of 6 coming to Barcelona and spending thousands in their country you think they would be a little more helpful! I have emailed this company twice, still no reply.

This was a nice break from walking around all day. We took the 40 minute tour and it was relaxing. No headphones or anyone telling you the points of interest but still a nice ride. It just goes around the harbor. You can see all the cruise ships, the freighters and parts of the marina. We like to take harbor... More
