Full description

Take advantage of your stay in Barcelona, escape from the city, and connect with nature on a full-day tour to Costa Brava. Discover this wonderful spot on the coastline and enjoy a full Mediterranean experience.  


Meet your guide in Barcelona and travel to Tossa de Mar in a private van with WIFI and air conditioning. Relax, meet new friends in the group, and enjoy landscapes with sea and mountain views.  


Upon arrival in Tossa de Mar, get outfitted with all the necessary equipment and start a day full of new adventures. Listen to the instructions from your guide and learn the basic rules of autonomous diving.  


Once you feel comfortable, the instructor will take you to a shallow and calm area of the beach so you can practice the basics. You will try the sensation of breathing with your face in the water and you will do some small exercises to gain confidence.  


Guided by an instructor, you will then be able to enjoy an underwater tour discovering hundreds of different fish, plants, and animals. It will be a dive initiation at less than 8 meters deep and it will last approximately 50 minutes.  


Afterward, taste a typical Mediterranean meal in a restaurant with sea views. The menu includes a starter, a main course, and a dessert, of various options. After lunch, enjoy some free time relaxing on the beach or visiting the old town of Tossa de Mar.  


Visit Vila Vella, the sole remaining fortified medieval town on the Catalan coast. Walk to the lighthouse and admire the impressive views, stroll around the old town and discover a labyrinth of narrow streets surrounded by beautiful traditional white houses.

Beautiful little town by the sea, wonderful instructors and scuba shop was conveniently located close to water entry. Driver from Barcelona was charming and knowledgeable about the area and the occupants of the town. Excellent service wherever we went

Amazing experience from start to finish! Matias greeted us with a warm friendly greeting you would expect from close friends, he explained the whole day to us as we drove to Tossa de Mar in the comfort of the aircon private transport. We arrived at the Kraken diving school and met Raul and Georgina - a small diving school customer focused school where we completed our first intro dive. The experience was frankly amazing, the water was so clear, as was the training from Georgina which meant we could focus on the experience as she inspires confidence. Following our dive, Matias again met us and we walked to our lunchtime restaurant - a great very relaxed place where the food is both authentic and filling and the staff very friendly. We then had some free time to walk up to the lighthouse and along the fortified walls of the old town and back to the transport for our lovely cool (aircon again!) trip back to Barcelona! We highly recommend Kairos Barcelona Tours to anyone! Thank you!!
