There are rare occasions where we depart from outside Barca, but these will be due to concerts in the arena and we will contact you prior to the cruise to confirm this.

Usual departure times are as follows;

Wednesdays – 7pm

Thursdays – 7pm

Fridays – 7pm

Saturdays – 1pm OR 7pm (please check which option you selected when booking)

The cruises all last roughly 3 hours.

Can you accommodate our dietary requirements?

We make every effort to accommodate our guests’ requirements but we can only do so with advanced warning – unless you inform us before the cruise the food may be unsuitable and we will be unable to freestyle. Normally we can provide options for vegetarians and vegans, as well as for those with most major food allergies.

If you have a serious allergy we urge caution as whilst we take every care to avoid any cross contamination, there is always a risk. We will be happy to refund you the cost of the food if you feel at all nervous.

Are the cruises disabled friendly?

Unfortunately due to the layout of the boat we cannot accept anyone who requires the use of a wheelchair, and if using crutches must be able to climb and descend a small set of stairs.
