Full description

Discover one of the best snorkeling spots off the Costa Brava on this wonderful eco-tour. Explore the seven islands of the Medes Islands archipelago, located just a mile from L’Estartit beach. See the incredible marine flora and fauna as you snorkel through this beautiful nature reserve. Meet your guide who will welcome you and give you the snorkeling equipment. Watch a short video on the Medes Islands and the marine life you can see there. Then get on board a small boat and depart for the islands. When you arrive at the archipelago, jump into the water in groups of 8 to 10 people with a guide who will show you the best spots to see the fishes. After 50 minutes of snorkeling, return to the boat and you enjoy time for swimming or relaxing on deck. Take a short cruise around the islands before returning to the harbor, where your tour will end.

Awesome day out! Didn’t expect as much wild life as we saw on this trip! It was well run, very organised and friendly staff. Covid friendly they gave everyone a new snorkel so people don’t have to re use old ones. Issued us with fins wetsuits and a mask. Quick boat trip out to the island, lots of fish to see as well as beautiful coral. Highly recommend! Great value for money

Well organized snorkel tour in an interesting area. Equipment was provided and suitable, and the snorkeling technique was well explained. Guides were friendly and competent. Downsides: the area was very crowded with multiple private boats and other excursion groups. We rather rushed through the program in 2 hours instead of the announced 3 hours. However, for beginning explorers of the underwater world like us it was a good experience and worth the time and efforts.

it was well organized!!! The guides are very friendly and the equipement is very good. The tour is also possible for Kids. the guides have swim-rings, where everybody can have a rest. and the boat is always nearby. we have seen beautiful big fishes. Only critic: They promised that we have more than 30 minutes free time on the boat and to dive by our own. But they started the boat after 10 minutes and drove back.
