This day out from Barcelona was phenomenal. I unfortuantely arrived late at the start but our guide, Tim, was very forgiving. (Don't be late though at this will eat into your time at this amazing venue!). The trip to and from the location was comfortable with AC, banging tunes and good banter. Tim gave a masterful but succinct demonstration on kayaking and snorkelling. The tour itself was incredible. It involved kayaking around breath taking scenery, swimming with the fish, history lessons that made us cultured and a fear conquering activity to overcome. Tim was entertaining, informative, down to earth and just an absolute legend! The tour was well paced, allowing time to relax and enjoy the beach. Overall, the whole trip was well planned, exciting and fun in the sun. A must do when visiting Barcelona or surrounding areas

Tim was honestly the best! Had a lovely day thanks to him, and we had a blast. Everything was organized so smoothly and helped us get the most out of our day. The lunch was delicious, he even helped us take pictures. He was very attentive and flexible. Definitely recommend this tour with him !

Well organised, friendly snorkelling trip. They had all the gear ready, and were very helpful. My 11 year old loved the snorkelling, we had a fantastic afternoon in the beautiful water by the Medes island, thank you!

great experience with an English speaking guide, who helped to start feeling comfortable on the sup (even though it was our first and the waves were not good for the first timers.

Lovely kayak tour around the caves and little inlets. A great guide with lots of fun information. Well organised, and great fun. Thank you!
