Big time

“Gemini is a wonderful ship and Dave is a great captain. You have an excellent afternoon overlooking Barcelona.

Fantastic !!!!

“Dave couldn't have been a better captain. He was gracious, interesting, and a great captain. Swimming from the boat was fantastic. The family had a perfect day! We were supposed to be out for 7 hours but Dave expanded it to over 8. It was great.

Amazing trip

“We booked a 3.5 hour afternoon sailing tour and it was just amazing! We had so much fun, lay in the sun, jumped in the sea and just enjoyed the beautiful day!

Big wind, great sail!

“Our sail with Dave on the Gemini was fantastic. Dave was quick to give us information about booking and how to find the boat. He was ready to leave as soon as we arrived. Gemini is a classic old wooden boat that is very stable and takes the water beautifully. Our weather was perfect with a lot of wind which made for a great sail. Dave stopped so we could jump in the ocean for a swim. It was a great afternoon and we highly recommend this boat. Dave was a pleasant host and let my husband and daughter go sailing. It was super easy to get on the subway.

Excellent change from busy Barca

“Fantastic day and got my first hands on experience of sailing that was exhilarating. David was great company. Bring food, water, and warm, windproof clothing - it's much cooler on the water. That would be an amazingly refreshing experience in summer. Thanks David!

Great sailing trip

“Sailing on Twins from Port Olympic is absolutely delightful. It was such a remarkable trip that I went twice in a month. Well read and quite charismatic, Skipper Dave is a top notch guy and very professional. He is attentive to his passengers' needs and very accommodating. If you wander in the back of the boat he has some great stories and advice about visiting BCN. I strongly recommend booking a trip on Gemini with Dave. It is a journey that we will always remember.
