This is great day time activity for anyone who wants to make the most of the sea and take a break from the city while on holiday. Kira and Oscar were really fun and kept us entertained with great stories, as well as teaching us proper kayaking technique and making sure we were safe. They also took us cliff diving and helps us overcome our fears which was absolutely awesome!

Takes a lot of energy, so make sure you have a big breakfast and come prepared.

Our day was simply amazing! Starting off with an hour bud ride to Costa Brava, getting our lunch, which was made by the staff at our meeting place in Barcelona.

After changing we divided into smaller groups, we were able to purchase waterproof phone cases for 10 euro, to take in the journey. Once we started kayaking, we kayaked to our first rally point, snorkeled, cliff jumped, and the kayaked some more!

Our tour guide, Owen, was fantastic. After the trip, he recommended some amazing dinner spots, which we gladly accepted, capping off our evening at L'Alcoba Azul - Tapes.

Overall, a great day that will leave you feeling happy, exhilarated, and exhausted.

Kira and ramos were great guides. The cost line was gorgeous and we went to a lovely quiet spot. I would recommend a reasonable amount of fitness as you do paddle in the ocean. Kira also gave us some good tips for local places to go in barcelona

Communication was excellent and Owen was really helpful. We found as others had said the guide on the kayak basically just went off with the group spread out and didn't really keep a lookout. There are no caves to paddle through the guide when he stopped gave no information about the area. Snorkeling was good but not too much to see, so we ended up back on the kayak and went off by ourselves

The owner promised us a 50% refund and he never did . He told us we won’t make it back in time because of the formula one race. So we could not join the tour. We accepted 50% refund only but he never did

A miserable day. No clear direction, so we didn’t know what to expect next or how long we’d be. Small group of 15 turned out to be a coach for 50+. Picnic on the beach turned out to be a sandwich on some jagged rocks in the sea. You couldn’t sit down or move around - there weren’t flat rocks, it was really jagged. I didn’t get any lunch and if I did it would have been soaking wet. And there was zero shade. There was one small bottle of water at the start of the trip and no more during the day. It was done cheaply and done badly. One loo with a massive queue, one tiny changing cubicle for 50 wet people.

Snorkels and masks were not washed, so no covid safety. No wet suit was provided as it says on here. Doesn't recommend bringing sea shoes or mention going cliff jumping anywhere. Seems like a lot of people didn't have sea shoes also and as a result stepped on sea urchins including me (which is super painful). The women guiding our tour also said it happens a lot, so I have no clue why they don't recommend to bring or provide sea shoes or even bring a first aid kit. The free sangria/beer is only offered if you go back to a bar with them (after the trip) while they try to sell you their other trips. Overall, for the price you pay... you would expect a lot more. I think if you got the right tour guide, brought sea shoes, and got good weather on the day it would be an good but over priced experience.

I took two stars off for an otherwise 5 star activity. The trip is well planned and an easy day to get a glimpse of Costa Brave / beach outside the city. Great communications and we didn't have to plan too far in advance.
Need to bring your own water shoes for the best experience.
*** There were 3 guides on our excursion, and 50 people. They divided us into 3 groups. We got Kira. She's lovely and friendly and was able to manage our group just fine. Zero drama, all good and fun day with Kira.
*** The in appropriateness of the guide Raul reported by another reviewer is, unfortunately, true. He and the other female guide (not Kira) likes to cuddle up on the bus. He fondles her a bit. As in fondling her breast, and whatever else! While there are cultural differences in public affection levels, and I want to respect these cultural differences. BUT there is a general standard expected while one is working, no matter the job. If you own and operate this tour and you read this you should ensure this doesn't occur again. I think they are likely very kind and sweet people as friends, but they need to adjust their professionalism. Make out, smoke weeds, do your thing after work! Thank you for reading and I hope this is helpful your team.

My family and I had a great experience! The two host were amazing! Even though our bus broke down and we had to wait 2-3 hrs after our excursion for a rescue bus I still enjoyed our time. Could have been worse and broke down on the highway. Definitely suggest company creates a back up plan in the event it happens again.

Great fun, I was expecting a bit of cliff diving too but that didn’t happen. Snorkelling and kayaking was really fun. Don’t expect a lot of fishes though. We saw a few. And the lunch they give u is meh at best.
