El barco bajó su pasarela después de embarcar.

English Translation

The ship lowered its gangway after docking.

Incorrect Spanish or English word? I don’t think “embarcar” means “dock”.

Embarking is the process of loading (people or things) for departure. I think it makes more sense that bajar is referring to “taking down” the gangway as in putting it away after use. This is confusing because deploying it for use in English is called lowering the gangway. My complete interpretation would be The ship put away its gangway after being loaded.
