If your plan for Barcelona is to have a good time, enjoy the sun and the laid-back atmosphere, a Barcelona Boat Party is the perfect way to make sure that happens.

Even though I’m no longer a visitor in Barcelona, I still can’t get enough of its coastline. Plus, who doesn’t want to make new friends?

Hop on a boat with me…

Barcelona Boat Party

The Barcelona Boat Party hosted by Stoke Travel. It’s one of the most party-oriented tour companies out there, so they know how to organise a good time. Their staff is super friendly and approachable – from the bartenders to the security guard and they have a way of bringing people together with introductions (“Hey, there’s another Canadian here!”) music, dance moves and drinks.

I thought they were sisters.

The cruise begins at the Coconut Club where you get your first welcome drink. Then you get aboard a two-storey white catamaran.

The upstairs deck is the chilled-out area where Colin the musician plays guitar in about 10 different languages (feel free to make a song request). And downstairs there’s a DJ making everyone dance. By the end of the 2-hour ride, you feel like you’re good enough friends with everyone onboard to show off your most ridiculous dance moves.

At the end of the ride, no one feels like going home, so they continue the party with their free passes to a one of Barcelona’s beach clubs.

These boat parties have become so popular that there are now two other cruise options:

Champagne Sunset Boat Cruise

The glam version of the cruise featuring an evening of champagne cocktails and chilled beats. You’ll be cruising along the Barcelona coastline at sunset aboard a stunning white catamaran, with wind in your hair, a champagne cocktail in hand, grooving along to some chilled house beats accompanied by their funky percussionists (normally Sexy Ellie on Sax), whilst shmoozing with your gorgeous fellow sea-faring spirits.

BBQ Boat Party

For those who want to swim, this is a 3-hour cruise along Barcelona’s stunning coastline with a 1-hour swim stop. You can suntan on the nets aboard the boat then splash around on thee rafts and various inflatables. Meanwhile, a BBQ and drinks are served.

If you hit up one of these boat parties for yourself, use code GETCLOSE for a 5€ discount. And register quickly to make sure it doesn’t fill up for your dates since spots are limited.

See you on the boat!
