    1. Lloret de Mar: Catamaran Sailing Experience with BBQ

    It was an amazing trip. The staff were fantastic, the barbecue with the music on the boat whilst we were stopped was so much fun and the atmosphere on the boat was brilliant. If i ever come again i will deffo be repeating!

  • From Barcelona: 6-Hour Costa Brava Kayak and Snorkel Tour

    2. From Barcelona: 6-Hour Costa Brava Kayak and Snorkel Tour

    Depart Barcelona at 9:00 AM, 12:00 PM or 4:00 PM, and journey along the Costa Brava for approximately 1 hour to reach the start point of your exciting kayak and snorkel adventure. Upon arrival at the beach, get outfitted with all the necessary equipment and listen to the instructions from your guide. Explore secluded beaches and rocky caves by kayak, and swim and snorkel among the native marine life. Encounter volcanic cliffs towering above the shimmering waters, brimming with fish, sea urchins, coral formations and more. Along the way, enjoy a picnic lunch and complimentary water, and get plenty of free time to chill out on a white sand beach. Head back into the heart of Barcelona at the end of your 6-hour adventure, and enjoy a round of beer or sangria at a bar on arrival.

    The trip was good and as planned. We asked for vegan food in advance (there was an option for dietary requirements when booking), but the guide has not been informed about this. Fortunately, he bought some food for us in a restaurant.

  • From L’Estartit: 3-Hour Snorkeling Trip to the Medes Islands

    3. From L’Estartit: 3-Hour Snorkeling Trip to the Medes Islands

    Discover one of the best snorkeling spots off the Costa Brava on this wonderful 3-hour 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

  • 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, de...

    This was a great trip we had covering Girona, Pals and Costa Brava. Felt like we were travelling with friends. Our guide Daniel was so so friendly and knowledgeable about the places we were visiting. The trip only had us and another couple and we all became friends by the end of the trip. Daniel showed us all the great spots around Girona and Pals and offered us ample time to see the places on our own and take photographs. He also arranged a nice place for us to eat in Callela de Palafrugell. A super trip all in all and 10/10 for Daniel as our guide.
