Full description
Get to know the magnificent Cabo de Gata and Níjar Natural Park from the sea. Explore the coastline by kayak before snorkeling in the clear waters an observing the underwater landscape.

Before embarking, learn basic paddling and kayaking techniques and listen to safety instructions. Venture out down the coast, spotting a number of coves and rock formation that are inaccessible by land and only visible from the sea. Navigate in and out of rocky caves. Get up close to sheer volcanic cliffs. Learn about the wildlife and geology of the natural park, one of most protected areas in Spain due to ecological, historical, anthropological, and geological significance.
