Sunset Sailing in Valencia

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

As a birthday surprise, we went on a sunset cruise on a catamaran. I read about it in a brochure I got from the Valencia Tourist office, though neither the brochure nor the internet had many details about it.

So, a week early I walked by the Veles e Vents building located at the America’s Cup port from where the cruise leaves. I was afraid it is going to be super touristy when I read that the ship could fit a maximum of 100 people, but as soon as I saw the catamaran my doubts were quelled.

We were lucky to be the only 4 people on the ship. How awesome. The crew said that there are usually no more than 15 people during the sunset cruises.

The boat leaves at 8pm every day (except Mondays). I recommend confirming that by calling, and showing up at least 15 minutes early. Get information and make reservations at this number: +34 963 816 066 (they speak English)

Price: €18 per adult – €9 per child (prices may vary)

Adults will receive a glass of delicious cava (sparkling wine) right before sunset, and there’s a bar on board with fair prices.

They might ask you if you’d like a tour of the America’s Cup port. We agreed; it was interesting and worth the time.

Now enjoy the images and the video from our trip. It was awesome and I totally recommend it to everyone visiting.

    Hi there,

    This sunset cruise looks great. Do you have a website or e-mail adress to contact the owner? I will be travelling with a group, and I think it would be great to try and reserve some places.

    Kind regards,
    Ruben

    But does anybody know if it is also possible to go next week or if its only in the summertime?

    Merel,

    I think they do tours – just give them a call and make reservations.
