What people are saying about Costa Brava

Very fun activity defo recommend to everyone to try out it takes you to a very nice part of Catalonia about 1.5 hours away from Barcelona. All the gear needed for the activity is provided such as wetsuits and snorkels but one thing I do recommend you do bring is Swim shoes as it makes walking on the reef bed much easier. The activity is not exactly a do your own thing sail your kayak wherever it's more loosely structured of where you are going touring the coastline and occasionally stopping to swim and snorkel. Everyone we met during the trip was great and friendly we also had drinks afterwards with some of them, the tour guides were also great and helpful.

I booked this excursion for my 30th birthday and it was an absolutely brilliant experience. My husband and I could not recommend this enough. Raoul and Oscar were the perfect guides and showed us some beautiful sights, as well as keeping us thoroughly entertained with their banter! highly highly recommend.
