Granada and Costa Tropical: Luxury Catamaran Trip with Lunch

2. Granada and Costa Tropical: Luxury Catamaran Trip with Lunch

You will meet in Granada city near the football stadium (metro stop) and drive down the valley for 45 minutes to the coast. After a quick safety briefing and a welcome glass of cava, the boat will from Marina del Este. From the comfort of the catamaran you will be able to see Almunecar, La Herradura, Cerro Gordo, Punta de La Mona, The Natural Park, Cantarrrijan as well as a number of historical watch towers dotted along this coastline, and get a great view of the Sierra Nevada mountains, all from the unique perspective of looking at them from out at sea. After an hour to an hour and a half sailing along the beautiful coastline, the boat will settle in a beautiful secluded spot (there are so many along this coastline!) to drop the anchor for a swim or a snorkel (masks and snorkels provided). The boat also has a kayak and two SUP paddle-boards for you to try out if you wish. While you enjoy the ocean, the crew will be rustling up a delicious buffet lunch with something for everyone, and a variety of dietary requirements catered for. After lunch, the boat will start to head back towards the marina, and hopefully spot some dolphins on the way. The catamaran, a Lagoon 380, is very spacious, stable, and safe, and boasts a great trampoline at the front of the boat between the hulls which the dolphins just love to swim underneath, giving the perfect view of these wonderful creatures completely in their natural habitat. And, all drinks on board (cava, beer, wines, soft drinks, water) are included too! A totally unique experience, and one which you will NEVER forget. At 6pm the crew will drive you back to the centre of Granada, arriving at 7pm.

Jose Miguel & Francisco were cheerful & enthusiastic guide. From collection to drop off everything was taken care of by them - booking the tour helped us have a stress free experience. The walk itself is not strenuous if you have done any bit of hillwalking and is an enjoyable experience.

The trip was great and went at a nice easy pace that allowed plenty of time for photos. The guide, Ian, was friendly and knowledgeable.

Thought it would be too heavy for me (72), but it wasn't too bad and I wouldn't have missed it. Incredibly beautiful.

Nice trip, very punctual, local guide told us interesting stories în different points of our walking tour. All effort worths

Very exciting and well organised. Luis was well prepared and gave us a lot of interesting information.
