Lloret de Mar: Celebration Cruise with BBQ and Drinks

1. Lloret de Mar: Celebration Cruise with BBQ and Drinks

Climb aboard a beautiful catamaran and get a welcome from the crew as you get ready to sail. From there, you can simply listen to the music and avail of complimentary soft drinks as you cruise along the Costa Brava Coast for a full hour. You will drop anchor at a delightful spot to go for a swim in the sea, and have some fun on a giant inflatable donut for about 20 minutes before a bell announces it's time for your barbecue feast. You will then sit down to enjoy delicious meal, including pasta salad, hamburgers, sausages, and fruit salad. Whilst you eat, you will also be welcome to redeem your ticket for 2 glasses of free beer or sangria. You will then return towards LLoret de Mar as the music is turned up, allowing everyone to dance if they so choose. You can marvel as your host performs some amazing choreography that will be hard to resist, whilst soaking up the great atmosphere and enjoying lots of laughs. You will also of course be welcome to top up your tan if you don't want to dance and prefer to sunbathe on deck.

Tossa de Mar: PADI Discovery Scuba Diving

2. Tossa de Mar: PADI Discovery Scuba Diving

The "try dive" is an activity recommended for beginners in scuba. The entire experience lasts three hours, the first 35 minutes of which will consist of a briefing on how the equipment works, how to communicate underwater using hand signals, and how the tour will go. Afterwards, get kitted out in the provided wetsuit and boots in the changing room. Once you are ready, hop in the van for just five minutes and prepare for the fun to start. Because the dive site is directly connected with the beach, you'll be enjoying a shore dive off Mar Menuda Beach.  When you get to the water, your guide will break up the activity step by step, and you'll have plenty of time to get used to each one at your own pace. Starting from the beach makes everything easier, especially for your ears as you'll have more time to get used to the pressure. Stay under the water for about an hour — this, of course, depends on you, because the more nervous you are, the faster you breathe, and the quicker you'll go through the air in your tank. During the dive, your guides will snap some photos/videos, so you will have a souvenir from the activity.

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.
