2. Tossa de Mar: PADI Discovery Scuba Diving

The "try dive" is an activity recommended for beginners in scuba. The entire experience lasts three hours, the first 35 minutes of which will consist of a briefing on how the equipment works, how to communicate underwater using hand signals, and how the tour will go. Afterwards, get kitted out in the provided wetsuit and boots in the changing room. Once you are ready, hop in the van for just five minutes and prepare for the fun to start. Because the dive site is directly connected with the beach, you'll be enjoying a shore dive off Mar Menuda Beach.  When you get to the water, your guide will break up the activity step by step, and you'll have plenty of time to get used to each one at your own pace. Starting from the beach makes everything easier, especially for your ears as you'll have more time to get used to the pressure. Stay under the water for about an hour — this, of course, depends on you, because the more nervous you are, the faster you breathe, and the quicker you'll go through the air in your tank. During the dive, your guides will snap some photos/videos, so you will have a souvenir from the activity.

Amazing experience from start to finish! Matias greeted us with a warm friendly greeting you would expect from close friends, he explained the whole day to us as we drove to Tossa de Mar in the comfort of the aircon private transport. We arrived at the Kraken diving school and met Raul and Georgina - a small diving school customer focused school where we completed our first intro dive. The experience was frankly amazing, the water was so clear, as was the training from Georgina which meant we could focus on the experience as she inspires confidence. Following our dive, Matias again met us and we walked to our lunchtime restaurant - a great very relaxed place where the food is both authentic and filling and the staff very friendly. We then had some free time to walk up to the lighthouse and along the fortified walls of the old town and back to the transport for our lovely cool (aircon again!) trip back to Barcelona! We highly recommend Kairos Barcelona Tours to anyone! Thank you!!

Una experiencia inolvidable!! La costa es una de las mas hermosas que he visto en mi vida, el buceo es divertido, con instructores profesionales y muy preocupados, realmente un día que valió mucho la pena. Matías, nuestro guía, traslada al grupo desde Barcelona en una van, en un viaje muy cómodo y entretenido. Al ser un grupo pequeño, fácilmente sociabilizamos entre todos y se generó un muy buen ambiente. El lugar es hermoso, el almuerzo muy rico, con bastante variedad, y el tiempo para recorrer el pueblo es perfecto. El día se pasa volando, dejando consigo una experiencia maravillosa. Quedé muy contenta es un paseo totalmente recomendado

We had an amazing experience with Tossasub! The instructors - Marina, Uri and Emma - were super friendly. They guide us very well. The staff is also very cooperative. All this things together made our diving experience smooth, enjoyable and very memorable. Highly recommended!
