What an amazing tour! I participated with my 13 year old son and 21 year old daughter. The tour was well organised, and finding the meeting point was easy. The bus journey was comfortable, approx 1 hour 15 minutes. Once we got to the beach we were divided into groups of 12. We were given wetsuits and changed in the bathrooms. There’s a secure locker room for your belongings. Most of my group had never kayaked before, and everyone managed to keep up. My 13 year old LOVED it - but, I wouldn’t recommend having a child/teen sit in the front of the kayak and I’d recommend every child/teen be paired with an adult, as you are kayaking through the waves and it is quite challenging. On the way back to shore, I let my son take the lead and we kept being swept further out to sea - a little hair-raising! Snorkelling and rock jumping was great fun and our guide, Borja, was awesome! The sandwiches were delicious and much appreciated. Definitely recommend this tour!!
All around, one of my favorite days in the Barcelona area. EXCELLENT value. The team was prompt, friendly, informative, and simply ENJOY their job. When booking, I liked that they gave you the option to cancel 24 hours in advance (because who knows about the weather!). Transportation- I was expecting some mediocre 15 person van like many other kayaking rentals I have done. The bus was pretty luxurious-there were several groups of 12 our day. Like a classy Greyhound. Lunch- Also exceeded my expectations! They had fresh baguettes, lunch meat, and condiments (Mayo, mustard, guac, tomatoes, lettuce). Kayak/Snorkel/Cliff Jump experience- Our guide "Bob" was an instant friend. So fun, knew multiple languages, and encouraged you to enjoy your time while getting out of your comfort zone when cliff diving (not required). Pictures-No need to bring your phone on the kayak. Staff documents via GoPro's and posts to their Facebook page for FREE. Awesome.
This was probably my wife and I's favorite activity during the 2 weeks we stayed in Spain. Our guide Edu was nice, funny and helpful. The other guides during the bus rides were funny as well. The tour was excellent. I am not a very good swimmer but loved every bit of the time we spent on the water. Wet suits were optional but glad we used them as water was a bit cold. We kayaked around rocks, into caves (weather that day was excellent!) and then finally parked to go snorkeling. After you get back to the beach, they make you sandwiches which are good (if you're a vegetarian, sorry they only had lettuce for you). You get an hour or so after lunch to hang out at the beach before they bring you back to Barcelona. Loved every bit of this tour. Most value for money we got out of every other package deal we bought.
Had a great day exploring the Costa Brava coastline. Even though it was cloudy, the water was so clear and warm. Dylan was an excellent guide, making the day even more fun. Lunch was simple but delicious and having some free time on the beach afterwards was lovely. The whole team were very friendly and welcoming. The option of wetsuits was great too. Overall, we thought this activity was really well organised and worth the money. (especially the photos taken for us)
Bob was awesome! He was funny and engaging as a tour guide. The kayaking was so much fun, and I was surprised and delighted to try a little cliff jumping. We also explored caves and saw that skull in the rocks. The snorkeling was fun but super cold so not everyone jumped in. The lunch on the beach was simple yet tasty
