We embark in the San Sebastian port. It is located close to the old town. From here we leave to open sea through the bay of La Concha. We will sail in search of adventures towards the horizon. It is common to find tuna, dolphins and even whales. The views from the sea are breathtaking. The mountainous landscape of the Basque Country is perfectly appreciated. To the west is Cape Matxitxako and to the east is the French coast. This part of the Cantabrian Sea is what we call the Bay of Biscay.
After sailing we always anchor in the bay to take a bath and serve lunch to our guests.
While you´re in San Sebastian, don´t miss the opportunity to go sailing in the Bay of Biscay. It’s yet another way to get a special point of view on the Basque landscape.
Sailing and lunch
There’s no other way to do it – besides the voyage, we’ll enjoy a fantastic Basque meal while on board. We’ll eat a menu made up of local products, accompanied by a good wines.
The Basques and the Sea
The Basque people have always had a close relationship with the sea, where they harvested important resources and built an economy on products like whale oil and salt cod. It’s said that Basque sailors, when following their catch, were the first to arrive to the Americas, landing in Newfoundland, present-day Canada. One of our most illustrious sailors, Juan Sebastián Elkano, was the first person to circumnavigate the globe on the “nao Victoria” (1519-1522).
