Make your own way to Barcelona’s gothic quarter, Barri Gòtic, and meet your guide for your full-day sea kayak experience. Then, hop aboard your air-conditioned minibus and relax on the journey north to the Costa Brava region — your destination of the day. Put on your provided life jacket, listen to a safety briefing and then paddle away from the cove in your sturdy sea kayak.
Meaning ‘rugged coast,’ Costa Brava is just that. Your route takes in a quiet and scenic stretch of the coastline, and you’ll have ample opportunity to ogle the landscape as you paddle.
Your guide stays close-by through your 4-hour stint on the water, allowing you to hear some light-hearted stories about the coastal area and its history. Besides the commentary, you’ll also receive some tips on how to improve your kayak technique so you can get the most out of your session. Learn how to paddle and maneuver yourself, and in the rare event that you should roll out, your guide is ready to help you back on board.
Around lunchtime, paddle to the shore of a secluded cove, and enjoy some free time to swim, soak up the sun and explore. Snorkel equipment is provided for you to use, as is a picnic lunch — complete with baguette sandwiches, chips, fruit and bottled water — brought along by your guide.
Feeling refreshed, return to your kayak and follow your guide back to the Costa Brava start point. Finally, finish your experience with a drop-off back in Barcelona.
