Incredible Guided Kayak and Adventure Tour
Michael_S
, Jul 2022
Our guide Matea(I think that how you spell it) was outstanding! His ability to teach us and guide us but not control our every move was amazing. I wish I had a better understanding of what exactly to bring and not to bring.

This was a great experience and highly recommended! Our guide, Pepe, was the best. Always smiling and making sure our group of 12 were safe and enjoying ourselves. We all became friends by the end of the tour. The excursion included kayaking, snorkeling, swimming and cliff jumping, if desired. The water was beautiful.

Patience, strength and tolerance for cold required!

Overall this kayak and snorkel tour was good. The bus was comfortable and it was enjoyable viewing the countryside during the drive to Costa Brava from Barcelona. Once we arrived, the organization of groups to begin kayaking was very lacking and people had to stand around for quite awhile in the heat waiting to start the tour. While the water was pretty cold (even in late June), the activity was invigorating and the seaside was beautiful. Our group spent too much time cliff diving and not enough time exploring snorkeling sights. Be prepared for an extended time of kayaking quite a distance to and from the snorkel sight.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Hi Kelly, Thanks for your feedback. We understand about the wait and organization. We'd only just restarted our larger groups for the first time since before the pandemic and we were still ironing out certain details. A lot has changed in our base since then so we're adapting to that. Nevertheless, sorry that you had to wait a while . We try our very best to please everyone on the tour. This time you commented about too much time cliff diving and not enough snorkeling, today we could get a comment about the contrary. Everyone that comes on our tour is interested in one aspect of our excursions more that another, this will always happen and we try to have a happy medium for everyone. Anyway, glad you enjoyed the tour. Thanks Stevie

If you are at all interested in kayaking or snorkeling while you visit Barcelona, this is the trip to book. La Costa Brava was MUCH more beautiful than any beach you’ll find in Barcelona, and you get the perfect amount of time to lounge about and swim at the end of the tour. JB was a fantastic guide - he explained the basics & safety of kayaking perfectly at the beginning without wasting too much of our trip time. As a solo traveler, I was given the option to use a solo kayak or ride with the other solo traveler in our group (I chose to remain solo). The water was very calm when we started our kayaking trip and we stopped to snorkel early on. JB knew a lot about the wildlife in the area and showed us exactly where to see a baby octopus, I’m not sure any of us would have noticed it had he not pointed it out. Once we got back in our kayaks, the wind really started to pick up and the water got pretty choppy. He kept us calm as we crossed the water, offering the perfect amount of guidance, and kept an eye out for anyone who needed assistance. We were still able to see the highlights of the tour despite the turn in weather, including a point for jumping off a rock into the water. JB made sure to emphasize our safety at all times, whether it was on the water in our kayaks or looking out for sea urchins on the rocks. We spent the perfect amount of time on the water and were very ready for lunch by the time we got to shore, which was provided very quickly. The sandwiches that were included in the price were delicious, but if sandwiches aren’t you’re thing, then the nearby bar has food for order. I assume the drive back went well because I slept the whole way. I do recommend either bringing a water proof bag for your phone if you’d like to bring it on the kayak or 10 euro cash if you’d like to purchase one at the shop. A towel for swimming afterwards is also recommended. I am very glad to have gone on this trip and have already recommended to other travelers I’ve met while in the area - if you’re considering it, you should go.

The best thing we did in Barcelona
Deborah_L
, Jun 2022
I snorkel a lot, and this was something special. The views were absolutely stunning and the water was clear. We went mid-june and the water was warm enough you could be comfortable without a wetsuit, but it was still cool and refreshing. Our tour guide was amazing. He was helpful and kind. Me and the person I was with are not strong kayakers (due to injury etc.), and we never felt left behind. The tour guide took the time to get pictures and videos that I loved, but if you have a waterproof camera, I would definitely bring it along. The pickup locations was easy to find, and it was very easy to get a taxi once we got back. The drive was lovely as well. The olive tree groves were super cool. This was genuinely my favorite thing we did in Barcelona, if you have the time, it is definitely worth it. Things to keep in mind: The food was definitely better than I was expecting, but still bring snacks. Especially if you are vegetarian. Bring more water than you want to carry, you can leave some of it on the shore. You don’t need water shoes, but we did climb on rocks at one point and it would have been nice to have more protection for my feet. I brought my own prescription googles, and if you wish to do the same, be aware the snorkels they provide don’t have an attachment mechanism. I used a hair tie and that worked fine, but it is something to keep in mind. I would recommend the small group if possible, it was a really chill experience, and we got to know everyone we were with personally. The large tour groups seemed a little hectic. Overall, this was an amazing experience I would recommend to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Amazing morning of kayaking and snorkeling
Debbie_M

Our guide, JB was amazing, he told history, gave excellent advice, was very helpful in his explanation and gave an overall wonderful experience. He was able to find an octopus for us to see and described the fish that we were seeing while we were snorkeling. The sandwiches he made at the end were also very delicious. We really enjoyed our trip and would do this again

Fun and Active!

Awesome kayaking route through the rocks and caves with gorgeous snorkeling in clear water - we saw so many fish! It was a great activity as a couple as we stayed on our dual kyak but it was fun to engage with the group and meet some new faces. The lunch provided and solo time to enjoy the beach was lovely and just the right amount of time before getting back on the bus. Very active and definitely good swimming needed!

Excellent day out from Barcelona
Yael_L
, Jun 2022
I was looking for a day out for us to enjoy (me and my partner, our daughter, 21, and son, 15). This was beyond our expectations! Borja met us at the meeting point in Barcelona with a smile and it was all lovely from that moment on. Bus was comfy, equipment was all in good condition. Explanations before we set out were really helpful and done in a nice way. Our guide, JB was so nice and knowledgeable- he took us kayaking around really beautiful places, into caves, a cool place to jump off, nice snorkeling spot - he found an octopus (!) And gave lots of interesting info throughout in a real easygoing way. He didn't paddel too fast or too slow for us, and the whole group (we had 6 more ppl with us, 2 parent + teenager and one young couple) kind of bonded around him in a lovely way, through those few hours at sea. We set off to the water around 1pm and returned around 4, welcomed by nice handmade (on the spot) baguette sandwiches. Then had an hour to relax on the beach or by the bar. Tips: I was happy with the half wetsuit as I knew the water will be cold for me (21c) while snorkeling. A hat and water are a must to take onboard I think. No need for your phone as the guide takes many pictures and videos with a gopro. Towels aren't really needed. Bottom line: beautiful scenery, really nice guides and vibes, well organised; underwater scenery is so-so (if you've been to red sea or other great underwater places), overall -an excellent day-out option from Barcelona.

The trip was amazing. The water was crystal-clear and absolutely beautiful. The rocks/clifs we kayaked and snorkeled around were amazing, and our guide David was fantastic. A great trip and great way to see another part of Spain if you’re staying in Barcelona. Highlight of my trip! Don’t miss it!
