Full description

Meet your guide and take the private transfer to the coast by air-conditioned bus from near the Arc de Triomf in Barcelona. It’s just over an hour up the coast of Spain in our air-conditioned minibus or bus.

Arrive at the kayaking base camp and meet your kayak tour guide. Change into your swimwear, get snorkeling gear and equipment, and take part in a safety briefing to learn some basic kayaking techniques.

Launch off the beach and into the water to start your 3-hour kayak tour. Hear about local flora and fauna from your guide as you admire the dynamic coastline. Stop along the way to try some snorkeling and exploring coves.

Savor a classic Spanish Bocadillo with chorizo for lunch along the way. Have the option to take part in a kayak race. Keep a lookout for marine life like an octopus while you snorkel. Watch swooping bats, splash your guide, and be terrified by old pirate legends.

After your tour, arrive on the beach and enjoy 3 hours of free time. Cool off and spend your free time exploring. Play a game of volleyball with the public nets, go for a cocktail or tapas in a local bar, or enjoy a walk along the coastline.

Take the opportunity to have a beautiful walk along the coast of the bay to different viewpoints or to pick up some souvenirs. Return to Barcelona by bus at the end of the day.

Absolutely loved this tour! Tim was a blast of a host to have for the bus ride there and back; such a genuine and warm personality. I did my kayak tour with the second guide, Marc. Super helpful and accommodating to make sure we all saw the best of the sites while kayaking. The area itself is stunning. Loved having 3hrs of time to explore and relax on my own. Would highly recommend this tour company! Thanks for the great memory!

My wife and I had a splendid time during our day trip to Costa Brava. Meeting/Pick-up point in Barcelona wasn't difficult to get there, and it's the same location where the bus will drop you off as well. Tim was lively and enthusiastic right from the start. Upon reaching Costa Brava, our group was split into 2. One would do the kayaking, snorkelling and cliff jumping first, while the other had 3hrs of free and easy time by the beach with sandwich provided. Then we swapped after 3hrs. We had Marc together with us as our guide out at sea, and he was really nice explaining the history. And not to worry, he takes all the videos and photos of us in our kayaks with his Go-pro and you get them for FREE after the trip straight to your email. Ended off with sangria and cerveza at evening whilst waiting for our bus to get us back to Barcelona city centre. This trip is a must try, no regrets at all.

We had a amazing time during our 10h day trip to Costa Brava. We did kayaks, snorkeling, cliff jumping all morning, stopped for a quick lunch at a tiny little beach with the best view and finished the day with some free time to explore the coast by foot. Our guide, Tim, was really nice and made the day even better. Also, Tim takes all the videos and pics you want, and you get them for FREE in the end. Didn't feel at all like a touristy trip, so could not recommend it more :)
