    1. 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.

  • Barcelona: 2-Hour Sailing Trip

    3. Barcelona: 2-Hour Sailing Trip

    Sail past the Sagrada Familia, Columbus Monument, Agbar Tower, Tibidabo and Montjuic Hills on this 2-hour excursion from Port Olimpic. Cruise through crystal Mediterranean waters while enjoying music, snacks, and drinks on board. Don't forget your towel, as the skipper can make stops for swimming and snorkeling along the way.  Take your turn steering the boat or let the professional skipper take the helm while you relax on the deck. No needed for any previous sailing experience, as the local provider will go over all the safety basics before setting off. All that is needed is swimwear, a towel, and a sense of fun and adventure to enjoy your experience on the water.

    Had a lovely trip with Miguel. Weather allowed for us to also take a dip. Due to cancellation by another party we were even treated to a private boat trip. Would highly recommend.

This was so much fun!! I really enjoyed kayaking to the caves of Costa Brava and the cliff jumping. The snorkeling was okay. The guides were cute, friendly, and very entertaining. The sandwiches they gave even tasted amazing. The drink at the bar once the tour wrapped up was a great final touch. I met some really cool people on this tour and I recommend it if you like to be adventurous, active, and see some beauty in Spain not too far from Barcelona.

I’ve got the best experience in Barcelona with this trip. Borja was amazing guide super funny and kindness. He showed for all group the best part of Costa Brava unbelievable how the nature is so beautiful there. Despite my partner and I don’t have experience with kayaking he had patience to explain and waiting for us all time. Also I’ve lost my sunglass (prescription) when I jump in the rockets however he found my sunglass in the ocean.

Wow. What an unforgettable experience. It made our time in Barcelona unforgettable. I went on a girls trip and we did this as a day out. Harry was an amazing instructor!
