Full description

Discover one of the best snorkeling spots off the Costa Brava on this wonderful eco tour. Explore the seven islands of the Medes Islands archipelago, located just a mile from L’Estartit beach. See the incredible marine flora and fauna as you snorkel through this beautiful nature reserve. Meet at the local partner's shop where you guide will welcome you and give you the snorkeling equipment. Watch a short video on the Medes Islands and the marine life you can see there. Then get on board a small boat and depart for the islands. When you arrive at the archipelago, jump into the water in groups of 8 to 10 people with a guide who will show you the best spots to see the fishes. After 50 minutes of snorkeling, return to the boat and you enjoy time for swimming or relaxing on deck. Take a short cruise around the islands before returning to the harbor, where your tour will end.

    Awesome day out! Didn’t expect as much wild life as we saw on this trip! It was well run, very organised and friendly staff. Covid friendly they gave everyone a new snorkel so people don’t have to re use old ones. Issued us with fins wetsuits and a mask. Quick boat trip out to the island, lots of fish to see as well as beautiful coral. Highly recommend! Great value for money

    It is a highly recommended experience because we were able to observe a multitude of fish. The guides were very aware of everyone because, due to the weather conditions, there was quite a current. The equipment that they left us was very complete, which made it easier for us to enjoy the excursion more.

    We went with two children aged 9 and 6 and they made the activity very easy for us all to enjoy. The guide explained in detail what we saw and we even saw a starfish. We were very lucky and saw a lot of fish. very happy with the experience.
