This day out from Barcelona was phenomenal. I unfortuantely arrived late at the start but our guide, Tim, was very forgiving. (Don't be late though at this will eat into your time at this amazing venue!). The trip to and from the location was comfortable with AC, banging tunes and good banter. Tim gave a masterful but succinct demonstration on kayaking and snorkelling. The tour itself was incredible. It involved kayaking around breath taking scenery, swimming with the fish, history lessons that made us cultured and a fear conquering activity to overcome. Tim was entertaining, informative, down to earth and just an absolute legend! The tour was well paced, allowing time to relax and enjoy the beach. Overall, the whole trip was well planned, exciting and fun in the sun. A must do when visiting Barcelona or surrounding areas
