Owner description: Walking tours, Bike tours, Sailing and our famous Kayaking and Snorkeling Day Tour.. We're a group of guides and adventure seekers that take pride in making your vacation something that we ourselves would like to experience: relaxed yet exciting, organized yet open-ended. In a word, we'd like to make your trip different than any other tour company could offer. Avoid the masses with our night-time bike tours and witness the lights, architecture, and music of Barcelona. Explore the famous Montjuic on an electric bike or wonder the historic small streets of old Barcelona. Get out of the city and experience the beautiful Costa Brava via Kayak and Snorkeling. We're affordable, fun, and like a very knowledgeable friend that you are visiting here in Barcelona. We look forward to hearing from you!

Had a great day out today and the guide, Jb, was friendly etc. We met at 1045, so not too early, and spent slightly more than 3 hours at sea, kayaking and snorkelling.

To add some value to this review, here are some advantages of this tour over other similar ones I looked at before deciding on this:

1. Flexibility in planning: there´s no need to pay beforehand online. All that is required is a deposit given in person at the meeting point (an easily accessible bar) by the day before the tour.

2. Cost: This is half the price of another tour I was contemplating and looking at the description, it's the same thing.

3. Free time on the beach (1.5 hours or so)! Another tour I saw was priced similarly but does not allow for free time on the beach.

4. Pictures! Jb or Stevie will take pictures throughout the trip and make these available. Unless you have a waterproof camera, this is a great value add.

The kayaking itself is pretty leisurely, good even for beginners, and of the right length, before it gets boring and too repetitive.

We had an amazing time in Costa Brava. The areas where we snorkled were extraordinarily beautiful, and the guides where really helpful and gave the tour a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Barcelona.

We had a fantastic time up in Costa Brava. A whole day excursion for a really good price, with a picnic lunch included. The guys were great and easy going, we had a really good group of people and it was something adventurous and fun but still easy for all abilities. Very much recommend!

You get your moneys worth. This is an all day event. Starts off with an hour and 1/2 bus ride up to costa brava. You do some kayking and snorkling along the shore. Bring some sun screen. Its a great time!

We had a great day going to the beach, learning to kayak and discovering the marine reserve that Stevie and JB guided us to. The group fits maximum 21 people going by mini-bus from Barri Gotic. The guides were very friendly and nice. We got all the equipment and instructions that we needed. Photos and lunch were included! Lunch was simple but highly appreciated after some hours of paddling and snorkeling. The beach where we picked up the kayaks and had lunch included a snackbar (other tourists and hotels). Thank you Stevie and JB, it will be a memory for life!
