10. Costa Brava: Kayak and Snorkeling Tour with Lunch and Beer
Meeting your group
You start the day meeting one of our Barcelona Day Trip guides to take our transfer bus from Arc de Triomf in Barcelona. It’s just over an hour up the coast of Spain in our air-conditioned minibus or coach. Plenty of time to get to know your group or have a sleep if you enjoyed some late night sangria and tapas the evening before.
Get ready at the beach
When you arrive you’ll meet your kayak tour guide, change into your swimwear, get all your snorkel gear and equipment, take part in our safety briefing, and learn some basic kayaking techniques.
Your kayak tour
From here you’ll launch off the beach and into the water to start your kayak tour. Your guide will lead you while inspiring you about the area, sea life and all the natural wonders to be observed. You’ll be taken on an exciting and relaxing journey that for most, is the highlight of their holiday. Expect some laughs, some funny moments and to be in and out of the water a lot!
Enjoy stops along the way to try some snorkelling, exploring coves, eat a delicious picnic lunch, and paddle through an unforgettably scenic coastline. Maybe you’ll take part in a kayak race, be lucky enough to see an octopus while you snorkel, see some bats, splash your guide, be terrified by old pirate legends, or even fall in the water yourself.
Arrive back at the beach
After your tour, you arrive on the beach with time to relax with your toes in the sand. When you've taken back your snorkel gear and other equipment, we'll give you a free beer, sangria or coffee. You could play some Volleyball with the public nets, go for a cocktail in a local bar or if you're very hungry, pick up some tapas in one of the many restaurants. There is also the opportunity to have a short walk along the coast of the bay to different viewpoints or to pick up some souvenirs.
We usually have around an hour and a half of free time before heading back to Barcelona.
Head back to Barcelona
