  • From L’Estartit: 3-Hour Snorkeling Trip to the Medes Islands

    1. From L’Estartit: 3-Hour Snorkeling Trip to the Medes Islands

    Discover one of the best snorkeling spots off the Costa Brava on this wonderful 3-hour 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 at the local partner's shop where you guide 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

  • From L'Estartit: Sea-Kayaking Tour to the Medes Islands

    2. From L'Estartit: Sea-Kayaking Tour to the Medes Islands

    Take on an unforgettable sea kayaking adventure to the Medes Islands, one of the principal marine flora and fauna reserves in the Western Mediterranean. Paddle to unique spots only reachable by kayak and have a swim in Costa Brava’s crystal waters. Meet at the local tour partner's shop, where your guide will welcome you and give you the necessary equipment for this activity. After a safety and technical briefing, climb aboard your kayak and follow your guide to this beautiful natural reserve. Kayak across the seven islands and enjoy unique picturesque views of the whole bay while you learn about the flora and fauna of this protected area. Before heading back, cool off with a refreshing swim, and marvel at the unique marine life on the seabed. You will be accompanied by the guide at all times and assisted by a boat which will tow you in case you need it.  

    It was all really well organised. We rowed up to the islands and then we could enjoy a 10-minute swim in that natural space. We swam back all safe and sound. I’d repeat the experience with them, for sure.

The first day we booked the activity and due to the strong waves the experience was canceled. We were able to do it 2 days later. The team of exceptional people. The place where the baptism is done is full of fish and the activity can be used very well. I recommend it 100%.

Great experience, really friendly instructors who were able to point out different fish to us
