There’s nothing quite like being out on the open sea. You get a very different perspective of the city from the Med. And thanks to Noah’s Barcelona boat trips that’s exactly what I was able to do.
We all met at Barnabier in Port Olímpic and shared a few beers until Noah arrived. We walked around the port to his motor yacht Minerva, where we were given a quick safety briefing during a few moments of seriousness. Then we piled aboard like eager schoolboys and bombarded Noah with questions, mainly about where the fridge for the drinks was and how fast the boat went, all of which Noah handled calmly and professionally.
We chugged out of the port and into the open sea. It was around 7pm and the sun was beginning to drop to the horizon. We motored up the coast while drinking beers and mojitos and putting the world to rights.
Noah put the fishing rods out and we continued on to Besos and further. The fishing was wholly unsuccessful and not really the right place for it but it was nice to try.
Boys will be boys and of course we wanted to see how fast we could go. Pulling in the rods it was time to see what this baby could do! Noah eased on the throttle and at 23 knots we were giggling like children.
The whole trip was thoroughly enjoyable and we came back to port wind-swept and happy. Invigorated by the sea air we returned to the bar and chatted until midnight.
If you ever fancy a boat trip out on the water for any occasion then Noah is your man! Calm, professional and extremely accommodating, I dare you not to enjoy it.
