Barcelona's only cruise speedboat, the X-Max can reach speeds up to 70kph—though they keep it a little more sedate for us tourists.
Harbour cruises leave from the Moll de Drassanes, right by the Columbus Monument, and run along the coast past the marinas and beaches to the Forum and back. They last a little under an hour. Bookings are possible by phone or e-mail, or just show up.
