A Must Do When in Barcelona!
volleyballer18, Sept 2023
My friend and I wanted to get out of the city for a day trip to see more of the surrounding area and get on the water. We could not have chosen a better tour to do so. We were paired with Milly and she was absolutely amazing in filling us with all the history of the area, taking pictures, giving us all the time on the water, cliff jumping, and knowing the best snorkeling spots (even got to see an octopus!). If you are looking for a trip out of the city, I would highly recommend this tour as they provided everything they said they would and were as close to the departure/arrival as one could be. Thanks for such an amazing time!
Great tour and guide!

Great experience! -1.5 hour tour van ride from Barcelona. Our guide Mario was knowledgable and friendly. We were split into small groups - ours had 5 people we spend some time getting used to the equipment and learning safety before heading out. We had some people in our group who had minimal experience and Mario was very patient and helpful. We spend a good amount of time kayaking, cliff diving, and snorkeling. Saw an octopus jellyfish, and some pretty fish. Don’t expect coral or bright fish but the water is crystal clear and blue. So fun!
Great day at Costa Brava!

Our host! Melon/Blondie was such a delightful person & made the whole experience so memorable, we couldn’t have asked for better!!
Was my second time and would do it again!
Chris, Sept 2023
Millie was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable, chill and fun leading the group. We never felt rushed. Cliff jumping and exploring sea caves definitely were highlights along with spotting octopus and starfish while snorkeling.
Great experience
Corey_I, Sept 2023
Definitely worth the trip. Beautiful clear water. Mario was an excellent guide. The beach town is a perfect non touristy place.
KimMarie_O, Sept 2023
This was a fantastic excursion for myself and my 15 and 17-year old daughters. The bus we took was clean/comfortable (it is an hour or so ride so go to the bathroom before hand at the Casino where you meet the guides/take the bus). The guides were fun and experienced. We had Jelmer/Yelmer/Welmer (can't recall spelling - sorry!) from Netherlands/Holland. He was FANTASTIC! Very educated on everything from kayaking, snorkeling, sea safety, and info about the region of Costa Brava and the sea/sea creatures. He was also personable and engaging. The lunch was fantastic. I am gluten free so for lunch, they made me a salad that was better than I would've expected . You eat lunch at this little beach restaurant that is open to the elements. You can get food there as well. It was super cute and made us feel like we were on a mini-vacay from our holiday stay in Barcelona. Then, you have 30-45 minutes (or more if you're a quick eater) to do as you please. Swim, layout, walk the trail, etc. My only regret is that I didn't tip because we forgot to bring cash. Would be great to have a Venmo option for tipping guides (if you wish to tip). Highly recommend this excursion!
Wonderful outdoor adventure!

Incredible experience for both my 10 year old and me! Marcos was an excellent host, he explained where we were going and what we were doing all day. He was careful to keep us all safe and having fun. Highly recommend this to families or anyone looking for an outdoor adventure!

Mateo was so great and a lot of fun. It was a great day for this adventure as the weather was so hot. We were all so grateful to be in the water. Just a heads up that you aren’t in a single kayak most are in a doubles.
Exceptional Experience

Amazing experience. Absolutely exceptional. Don Mario was the best guide. The water was beautiful. The kayaking, swimming, snorkeling in the Mediterranean was just awesome. Water has the most gorgeous color. Traveled with my husband and daughter. My daughter said it was the best experience of her life.

I was originally supposed to go out on a saturday and when I didn’t make it they tried to get ahold of me, once we got in contact they were kind enough to let me come the following day. My guide was JB and he was so nice, the trip was amazing ,he took pictures for all of us, made us sandwiches, and gave us a bit of history also. Afterwards I sat with the workers on the beach while everyone swam and they were also super nice and very friendly. I’m a solo traveler who was in a group with lots of doubles and it’s so nice to be welcomed in with open arms. Overall just a very welcoming hard working group of workers who clearly love what they do and made the experience well worth it and I can’t recommend it enough. Hands down the best thing i’ve done in Barcelona

Marcos was an amazing guide and the trip was super exciting. We saw so many cool places from the kayaks and got to enjoy the water while snorkeling.
Highlight of our summer 2023 Euro trip!
Phil_B, Aug 2023
This kayak & snorkeling trip on the Costa Brava was the highlight of my dad and daughter excursion to Europe this past summer. Meet up was simple and I knew we were in for a great time after being introduced to Marcos - a very friendly and experienced guide who spoke both English and Spanish. Marcos picked us up promptly and drove us up the coast to the small town on the Costa Brava where we would go kayaking and snorkeling. The August day was perfect - clear skies, hot and beautiful. After a quick stop to stow away any gear we didn't want to get wet, Marcos gave a tutorial on how best to paddle and navigate the waters. We grabbed life vests, snorkels and paddles and boarded our two-person kayaks and then we were off! Marcos led us to secluded spot away from the nearby ships and surfers where we went snorkeling. It was my daughter's first time snorkeling and she was a little apprehensive but Marcos went out of his way to help me get her situation - even so far as diving for starfish she could see and touch! After exploring some nearby sea coves, taking some dives off rocky outcroppings, and enjoying a light lunch - I can confidently tell you to Ask for Marcos and go on this trip! I know I will be back with the rest of the family in the future.

Great experience! It was our favorite activity we did on our trip. Costa brava was beautiful and we’d definitely come back.
Definitely a fun experience
Jennifer_T, Aug 2023
Toured with Mateo who was wonderful. The area is beautiful and the small group tour was enjoyable. Mateo went over everything prior to getting in the water and was helpful and fun throughout our adventure.
A fun day at Costa Brava!
Alexandria_L, Aug 2023
We really loved our experience on the coast with our tour guide, Luis! The weather was beautiful - if a bit hot. I really appreciate that they stored our belongings at the shop on land and made sure that our valuables were locked up. It was a really fun way to explore Costa Brava and cool off during the heat wave.
