Costa Brava: Kayaking and Snorkeling Tour

3. Costa Brava: Kayaking and Snorkeling Tour

Meet your small group at the Sant Pol Kayaking School right by the beach. After a short introduction and safety briefing, you'll have time to get kitted out before taking to the waters. Explore secluded beaches and rocky caves by kayak, and swim and snorkel among the native marine life for 2 hours with your French-speaking guide. Encounter volcanic cliffs towering above the shimmering waters, brimming with fish, sea urchins, coral formations, and more before heading back to the main beach.

Tossa de Mar: PADI Discovery Scuba Diving

4. 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.

Matias is amazing! This tour was probably one of my favorite parts of my whole vacation. Matias is fun and knowledgeable. The kayaking tour was informative and fun. He took pictures for us while were out there so we didn’t have to worry about getting our phones wet. Matias made sure we knew exactly had to kayak and was able to teach us amazing technique. When we saw multiple sea caves and stopped at a small cove to snorkel. It was a nice relaxing break and even saw an octopus! After our kayak tour, we had a delicious and filling three course meal. After our meal, we had the perfect amount of free time! We were able to walk around the old and new city to explore, shop, and more. I cannot recommend Matias and his tour more. You will have an amazing time!

My wife fell sea sick during kayaking, the coordinator was very helpful arranged for a boat to take back. Very Personalized trip , unlike other providers who provide a sandwich for lunch, the food was excellent the kayaking, exploring the coastline and caves was breathtaking. Highly recommend

It was an awesome experience, but what made it truly amazing was our guide Pepe, that man should be declared a national treasure! Felt like being out with a good friend, professional, friendly and relaxed with great knowledge.10/10 would give him my hat !

Very nice! Very nice and spontaneous supervisors. Food was provided. 1 tip: provide something for vegan such as humus spread or something else on a sandwich. Not just a sandwich with vegetables.

Dana is very patient and very nice,i like her very much!!!!i will comment to my friends!!!
