Looking for a unique and unforgettable way to propose to your partner? Take your future wife on a truly romantic boat trip in Barcelona.

Vela's Marriage Proposal Boat Trip in Barcelona begins at Port Marina Vela, right beside the iconic W Hotel in La Barceloneta beach. We'll begin with a relaxing sailing tour through the historic Port Vell and Maremagnum area. From there, we'll head to open sea and set sail along Barcelona's coastline. While sailing you'll be treated with beautiful views of the city's skyline.

While the proposal timing is entirely up to you, we highly recommend to do it during sunset, as it provides the ideal atmosphere and backdrop for such a special occasion.

Vela's Marriage Proposal in Barcelona itinerary.

We're flexible with the itinerary to suit your preferences, but here's our proposed 2-hour plan:

  1. Once you've booked, please inform us of any extras you'd like and your preferences, such as music or specific questions you may have. If you opt to bring a photographer, we'll let you know the strategy we use to bring him/her on board without revealing the proposal secret.
  2. As you step on board the sailboat a few minutes before departure, we'll greet you with a glass of cava or champagne. Feel free to walk around the boat and sit wherever you prefer; the large pillow at the front offers the most comfortable & intimate seat in the boat!
  3. Our journey begins at Port Marina Vela, where we'll smoothly sail towards Port Vell and the Maremagnum area, allowing you to admire Barcelona's beautiful waterfront from the serene vantage point of the water. This part of the journey is very relaxing and typically lasts about 40 minutes.
  4. Next, we'll open the sails and navigate along Barcelona's coastline. Our captain will position the boat at the perfect spot against the beautiful backdrop of Barcelona, creating an ideal moment for you to propose. Simply give us a signal, and we'll play the special song you requested.
  5. Once she says yes, we'll continue our boat trip along the coast, allowing you to enjoy this unforgettable moment with your partner as we head back to port.

We know how to keep a Secret...

We understand the importance of the secrecy involved in marriage proposals, and our team ensures that every detail runs smoothly, from decorating the boat and serving Cava to creating a custom playlist of your favourite songs. We will also record the big moment if you ask us to do so!

Your Moment, your Music.

We invite you to share your favourite songs with us, so we can create a playlist that accompanies you during the experience. And when that special moment arrives, the one where you take a knee, just tell us the song you want playing, and we'll make sure it sets the perfect mood.

"Vela Boat Trip was the perfect setting to propose to my Fiancé. David our skipper made the whole experience flawless, relaxing and memorable. If any men out there are looking at options to propose to their girlfriend in Barcelona, I would highly recommend this company they were fantastic. They had everything covered e.g blankets if we were cold, cava on board to celebrate, and a Polaroid to take instant images of us amongst many more options."

"Alvaro and Dani were great hosts. I told them ahead of time that I wanted to propose to my girlfriend on the sail ahead of time and they were happy to accommodate and plan out the moment. They took plenty of photos and videos with our camera and the Polaroids given to us were a great touch. Drinks and snacks were also offered too. Both also gave us some recommendations on the best places in Barcelona to visit, all around great hosts. Would recommend to anyone wanting to sail in Barcelona!"
