Based in the port of Palamós, we specialise in classic boats and sharing local maritime traditions. We offer an active sailing experience: our passengers all take part in the on-board manoeuvres as they discover a new way of sailing along one of the most emblematic stretches of the Costa Brava.

Aboard the boat Rafael, built in 1915, and the schooner Jolie Biche, we will sail to the Formigues Islands and anchor off Castell beach to taste traditionally prepared sea urchins: freshly caught, with bread, botifarra Catalan sausage and a good bottle of Empordà wine. If they are in season, we suggest trying some famous freshly-caught Palamós prawns.

First, we’ll take our passengers on a visit to the fish market; then we’ll set sail and, after anchoring, we’ll have a swim (depending on the time of year). Then we’ll grill some big prawns on a bed of salt (150 gr per person) and wash them down with a white Empordà wine.

Tela Marinera offers a relaxed, unhurried sailing experience on classic, traditional boats, where the history of the men that once sailed in them complements a landscape and culture that never fail to inspire.
