  • Lloret de Mar: Catamaran Sailing Experience with BBQ

    1. Lloret de Mar: Catamaran Sailing Experience with BBQ

    Enjoy the ultimate day of fun in the sun with a sailing trip along the Costa Brava. Climb aboard a beautiful catamaran in Lloret de Mar and set sail. Lie in the big net bow area and feel the sensation of floating over the sea while listening to music and having a drink.   After 1 hour of sailing past the stunning landscape of cliffs, caves, secluded beaches and fishing villages, the boat will stop at a quiet spot. Swim in a small inlet, play on the giant floating mattress, or go snorkeling in the beautiful waters. Top off the experience with complimentary drinks including beer, sangria, soft drinks, and water. Return to Lloret de Mar with the music turned up, as you soak in the atmosphere.

    It was an amazing trip. The staff were fantastic, the barbecue with the music on the boat whilst we were stopped was so much fun and the atmosphere on the boat was brilliant. If i ever come again i will deffo be repeating!

    Depart Barcelona at 9:00 AM, 12:00 PM or 4:00 PM, and journey along the Costa Brava for approximately 1 hour to reach the start point of your exciting kayak and snorkel adventure. Upon arrival at the beach, get outfitted with all the necessary equipment and listen to the instructions from your guide. Explore secluded beaches and rocky caves by kayak, and swim and snorkel among the native marine life.
