We are in pretty decent shape so for us it was fun, but not sure how it was for some of the others who had to quit. With calm weather this is an activity that should be enjoyable for everyone, however with windy conditions you should be in good shape if you expect to finish the tour. The guides are excellent and very safe, so despite the conditions (wind, waves and current) we felt good and safe at all times.

It is a very cool activity in a beautiful environment, I can only put as "but" that there was a considerable delay and this meant that we had to go full rowing, that if you have experience and you are fit then fine but if you go with children and it is your first time... you end up knackered

The kayak activity to the Medes Islands is spectacular. Keep in mind that they are just over 2 hours non-stop paddling in the open sea, so it is a tiring activity. I recommend wearing goggles or a diving mask to be able to observe the seabed on the islands, it is spectacular. The very nice and funny guide. A 10 in attention from workers.
