Cabo de Gata: Kayaking and Swimming Excursion
- Duration: 3 hours
Get to know the magnificent Cabo de Gata and Níjar Natural Park from the sea. Explore the coastline by kayak before snorkeling in the clear waters an observing the underwater landscape. Before embarking, learn basic paddling and kayaking techniques and listen to safety instructions. Venture out down the coast, spotting a number of coves and rock formation that are inaccessible by land and only visible from the sea. Navigate in and out of rocky caves. Get up close to sheer volcanic cliffs. Learn about the wildlife and geology of the natural park, one of most protected areas in Spain due to ecological, historical, anthropological, and geological significance. Stop in a hidden cove in the marine reserve to go swimming before paddling back to the beach where you started.
Guide could have warned us about the rocks, now my friend hurt her foot. The surroundings were beautiful. It was a great experience
Start your coastal cruise in the traditional fishing port of Carboneras. Sail to la Cala del Corral and las Salinicas. Admire the crystal-clear waters and volcanic cliffs of Playa de los Muertos. Then, navigate the Cabo de Mesa Roldan. See its fossilized coral reef and the Mesa Roldán Lighthouse. Continue on to Cala Puente, Cala Sorbas, and Cala Castillo until you arrive at the small fishing town of Agua Amarga. Marvel at the best views of this small town from the sea. Drop anchor at the secluded Cala de Enmedio. Swim and snorkel in its clear waters before heading back to the port of Carboneras.

We booked in his trip for a birthday surprise for a 68 fit year old! All relaxed, full instructions given then off we went into the kayack with iced water given also. We traveled around the coast being given the history and photos taken en route. Snorkeling came in a bay half way where we saw fish. Then back. Very good morning out and definitely recommend this as easy to book and full support at all times during the session.
It has been an incredible experience, the views are great. There was a lot of wind and it cost us a bit but we were delighted. Thank you
Great experience with children we really enjoyed. The monitors are very attentive and friendly.
We have really enjoyed this tour. It is not cheap but it is worth every euro it costs.
Great few hours kayaking, never tried it before but soon got the hang of it
