    Amazing experience, Amazing guide!
    My wife wanted to visit Costa Brava and I booked this activity. I must say it was one of the best days in Spain :) Right from meeting Nacho, who conducted and guided this tour pretty well to overall views, activities (Swimming + Snorkeling) to an amazing lunch. All top notch. I must say Nacho as a guide is very kind, smart and is considerate to everyone. He will give personalized attention and help everyone :) He has a lot of stories regarding Costa Brava and has had wonderful life experiences which you listen all day! He is funny as well, which is like an added bonus! I would recommend this activity to anyone who is in and around Barcelona and loves an adventure or two! ;) We thoroughly enjoyed our day :)

    Best day in Spain!
    The best day of my 7 day trip to Spain. Costa Brava is heavenly. I went with a group of 7 people and Nacho was our guide. A person full of knowledge, humour and humility. Additionally, he made sure I was comfortable as I'm not a good swimmer. I had a wonderful day and hope to come back again soon!

    Exciting, educational and worth every dollar
    One of the highlights of our trip in Barcelona! Our guide, Nacho, was kind, knowledgeable about the geography and history of costa brava and a good swimmer that helped people that were uncomfortable with swimming enjoy all of the snorkeling activities. This was a unique experience that took us through some of the most breathtaking scenery I have ever seen. We even saw an octopus! It ended with a delicious lunch filled with regional eats I would not have known to order and great Sangria. 11/10.

    Awesome adventure!
    My wife and I signed up for this small group excursion. There were eight of us plus the guide, Marco. It was mid-October and the weather was overcast and the sea was a bit bumpy but we had an absolutely amazing time. It was so much fun paddling and exploring some of the caves and also doing a little cliff jumping. Marco was a great guide, he was so cool, calm and collected - my wife isn’t so comfortable in the ocean or snorkelling but Marco really engaged the entire group to enjoy this experience together, safely driving us to and from Costa Brava and taking pictures for us with his GoPro. We would definitely recommend this excursion and thank you so much, Marco!!!

    Fantastic day on the costa brava coast with loads of fun!
    I had a great experience with JB and Marco! We went on this experience as a couple and had a great time with the group. JB was so nice, patient, honest and truly cared for each one of his guests. He always put safety first but still managed to give all of us a great time. Marco was a great addition as well keeping the vibes fun and showing us little things to explore in the cool area they showed us. We had a fun, medium length day that was enjoyable all the way through, about an hour and a half drive there and back was fine due to the great view and cool landmarks to look at on the way. There was never a point of boredom, worry or doubt that they didn’t know exactly what they were doing. Im so glad I went and this was a great value for my money. Thanks again Marco and JB Mr Steel.

    Kayak, cliff jumping, cave exploration, sightseeing
    I don’t really do reviews but for this one, I just had to. Marcos is a top man. Very cool guide and he is a good teacher. Despite windy hour when we were kayaking, he helped us all the way to end of the checkpoint. Also not to mention, he took pics/vids of us using his gopro and shared it with us at the end of the day. Thats a bonus.

    Stunning views, great equipment, and incredible guide!
    This trip was INCREDIBLE! Marcos was so knowledgeable, kind, and professional. He took such good care of us with humor and thoughtfulness. It was my friend's first time kayaking and snorkeling, and he took extra time to teach her. The water was pristine, and we had an amazing day!

    What an amazing day with blondie! We had a beautiful location to kayak and snorkel, was happy they had wet suits! He was an excellent guide and took all the photos for us with the go pro. Was very relaxed and did not feel rushed.

    Good Exercise on a Beautiful Beach
    JB was our tour guide and he showed us a fantastic time - couples and less skilled paddlers used tandem kayaks while the more seasoned folks got their own. We paddled for about an hour, and spent another hour snorkeling to spot fish, and we saw an eel, octopus and a cuddlefish. JB did what he could to help everyone see the fish. He also helped us jump from a rock into the water for fun. The experience was very much worthwhile. The water was very cold so use a wetsuit as they advise. Bring a water cover for your phone, bring sunglasses and sunscreen. You can also buy the water cover and sunglasses from the tour guide, but they may run out. Afterwards, we had time to walk up the coast, by a 5-star hotel where Winston Churchill and other famous figures have stayed, and passed some of the most expensive real estate in Costa Brava. We took great photos there and throughout the tour, and the guide (JB) also provides photos he’s taken after the tour. I have only good things to say about the experience!

    Definite day trip from Barcelona!
    My family and I highly recommend this outing from Barcelona!! Marcus met us with professionalism and a great attitude of excitement and engagement from the start of this trip!! We loved every minute from the organized, well articulated plan, smooth departure, and competent team at the beach running the kayak outfit. When we hit the water the scenery was incredible!! We had great snorkel time and discovered coastal caves. The most important part of the trip was Marcus' ability to accommodate varying levels of capability. Thank you sos much!! Gracias, Marcus!!

We had Dane as a guide and she was great! She picked us up in a 8 passenger van at the casino in Barcelona and took about a 1 hour 10 minute drive north towards Girona. After a quick intro to kayaking, we kayaked in the bay to a snorkeling spot where we saw fish, sea urchin, and an orange star fish. We then kayaked across the bay to see the beautiful rocky coastline, followed by jumping off a 20 foot cliff. We paddled back to the shore where Dane made sandwiches from fresh baguettes, also had gluten free bread for those who need it. Walked with our sandwich to a beachside bar where we purchased delicious Mojitos and cortado. The bar also has food available for purchase. The van took us back to Barcelona for a full 8 hour day.

Notes:
The van was quite hot even with the air and if you get car sick, I recommend sitting in the front seat.

We brought towels, but they were not needed.

They do have a locked space on shore for your valuables if you bring any.

Everything in your kayak will get wet, so only bring what is necessary.

Dane took pictures that she shared digitally, but if you want to take your own being a dry sack for your phone that can clip to your life jacket for security.

Would definitely do this again!

Our family of 4 (2 adults 2 kids 10 and 12 yrs old) had the most amazing and memorable experience on this excursion. Reception was smooth and easy and the coach bus for transportation to Costa Brava was very comfortable and clean. Our guide, Millie was terrific - friendly, knowledgeable and up beat from start to finish. Our group was a mix of skill levels for kayaking and snorkelling, but with Millie’s guidance and teachings, we were all pros and having a blast on and in the water in no time. All the sea activity equipment was in good working order and safety was a priority, which was appreciated with our young kids on the tour. We also learned some of the intriguing pirate history of the area from Millie, which made for more fun as we explored the secret caves. Millie captured all the fun with her camera and shared the link to pictures that same nite; we had so much fun going through the photos (cliff jumping pics were epic!) Millie’s easy and friendly style encouraged group cohesion and by the time we were having lunch with our group and Millie at the end, it felt like a lunch out with new friends. This is a 10/10 experience and a Must Do for all levels if you love the ocean and beautiful scenery. Thank you Millie and our group!

This was a memorable and fun outing from Barcelona for our family. It was so nice to be in the sunshine and be active - a nice break from pounding the pavement and getting lost in Barcelona. Our guide (JB) was professional, kept us safe, and pointed out things we would have missed without him. The rock formations/water/town were beautiful. We had a lovely lunch on the beach after the kayaking and snorkel. They provided wetsuits which I highly recommend if you’re at all likely to get cold! Great family outing!

We did this yesterday with our teenage sons. Our guide Harry was excellent, picked us up from outside the casino and took us to a beautifully cove, we had full instruction and then set off on a 3 hour kayak safari, stopping at protected reefs to swim and snorkel in crystal clear waters, jump off cliffs, had a lovely lunch and a chill on the beach then back home exhausted.. Harry really went above and beyond to make it a fantastic day,. He even took pictures which he sent us, which he did not have to do but made it even more special

Kayaking for the first time in the Mediterranean wasn't too bad when you have an excellent tour guide and the weather was in your favor! Blue skies, and crystal clear water all around. Our amazing tour guide, Borja, stopped at appropriate times to explain what's along the coast of La Costa Brava, and snorkeled among us to try and show us different marine life. There was plenty of time to enjoy the sights on the water and walk around the small town at your leisure. I highly recommend this excursion!
Tips: Bring water and waterproof bags!

This was a great experience, fun and relaxing at the same time. It is excellent value for money, as it includes transport to and from Costa Brava, 2-3 hours on the water kayaking/snorkelling/rock jumping, and a tasty lunch afterwards (make sure to have a good filling breakfast as you'll work up an appetite!) It was a good pace with enough time to explore the beautiful waters. We had Harry as our guide who was attentive and easy to chat to which made the experience much more enjoyable. Would highly recommend.

I’m giving it 3 stars only for our kayak tour guider his name was Sergie/Sergoo he was the best as the kayaking was not for beginners as it hit really hard on the shoulder but he helped us.

The negative side: the package we have purchased included lunch/snacks after finishing from a really long time swimming and kayaking in the sea we were surprised about the food hygiene everything was not sealed off and we saw flies on the top of the food plus we wrote a special dietary requirement which they didn’t deliver, so we decided to flexible and try to eat the veggies available shockingly they put the lettuce as whole on the table and if you want some you take an unwashed leaf and eat it. We didn’t eat anything and there was not drinks.

- while in the bus/coach you are not allowed to eat or drink until you arrive

- there was a delay in time. We didn’t get back at the same time it was mentioned.

Oh we're really sorry that the food hygiene didn't meet your expectation. As mention in the description, we make the sandwiches fresh on the beach, in nature, there are flies in nature as well, they exist when you have a picnic in a park and also on the beach. We can't stop flies from existing around us. We're not sure what you mean by not sealed. All the food is in Tupperware, we open them when you order your food. I'm not sure what else we can do, again, we are not in a deli in a sandwich shop, we are outside in nature. We are sorry about the special dietary requirement. Unfortunately you booked on Trip Advisor / Viator and they don't pass us this information. We always have options for veggie and vegan and we do our best for gluten free. I'm sorry about that. We normally don't have lettuce, but spinach leaves. We did run out one day and the guide had to buy lettuce. I'm sorry they didn't wash that, its not something we normally have. As mention on the description and in your itinerary, drinks are not included. This shouldn't have been a surprise. The coach is sub contracted from various bus companies. None of them in Spain allow you to eat onboard. We have no control over that, but we understand the reason why its not allowed. If we are delayed starting then we will sometimes be slightly delayed coming back as to make sure that you get your full day in. Its a shame that on a full day kayak and snorkel tour you put so much importance on the sandwich lunch as to rate us 2 stars lower. But thanks for the feedback.

Kayaking & snorkeling with Borja’s group was a phenomenal experience! Not only did he take his time to go over rules and the breakdown of the day, he also made sure we felt safe and new what to do in the event of an emergency. Borja did a great job of teaching the group cool and exciting new things, and even went out his way to find cool animals to interact with. The pictures taken were awesome and were made accessible to the group in a timely manner, and let’s not forget that complimentary lunch ;-)!

Borja was a very entertaining funny witty guide and would highly recommend him. Happy to have made some great friends on this adventure. Overall such an amazing experience!

What an amazing day! Sergi (Melón) picked us up right on time and was full of interesting stories about the area and the people of Spain on the drive to Costa Brava. Once we got there, getting ready to kayak and snorkel was easy and storing our valuables was no problem. We were out on the water quickly and Sergi was even more amazing on the boat. He had us laughing with his jokes while we kayaked in unbelievably beautiful water. On top of that, when he heard our daughter was studying Spanish, he said everything in English and Spanish and taught her more obscure Spanish words. Wow!

We paddled for maybe 30 minutes through sea caves and rocky coves. Then, snorkeling. The water was clear and warm and there were many fish and starfish to see. Underwater canyons were everywhere and Sergi pointed out many interesting things to see. From there, back to the kayaks for more paddling around the area before returning to the beach.

When we got back, lunch was ready in just a couple of minutes. There was a bar there with drinks and food if you wanted more, but our lunch was plenty.

On the drive back, again Sergi was helpful, pointing out hot spots for shopping and a nearby castle. He took pictures throughout that we received later that evening.

We’ve been on a lot of tours, but this one was the best, in no small part thanks to our amazing guide. I’d give it 6 stars if I could!

A very professionally run but relaxed day out on the water kayaking, snorkeling and rock jumping. I would highly recommend this package to people of any level of experience on the water and as a great way to meet some like-minded people. Our guide, JB, was able to quickly teach the basics of kayaking and safety on the water and quickly had us out enjoying la Costa Brava from the sea!
