What you'll do

Explore Costa Brava, the marvelous coastal landscape characterized by Aleppo and Stone pine trees overhanging the steep cliffs and sandy beaches with crystal clear water. We will start our hour long adventurous coastal path - Camino de Ronda, in Sant Feliu de Guixols and follow the rocky coastline while discovering some typical aromatic plants that grow in the Mediterranean.

This path served as a patrolling frontier against groups of smugglers after the Franco’s dictatorship took over in 1939. In an hour at most, we will reach the splendid beach in Sant Pol de S’Agaró. We will change into swim clothes and get ready at the Escola de Vela for our kayaking explorations.

Our sea kayaking adventure will take approx. 2.5hrs and will lead us to one secret cave where we will enjoy the first refreshing bath. The sea kayaks will allow us to gently propel along the amazing coastal cliffs while enjoying the marine ecosystems including seagulls, cormorants, and a variety of fish.

We will find a secluded spot among the rocks to enjoy some crystal clear lagoon dip and a snorkel if desired. In the end, I will recommend local restaurants so that you can reward yourselves with a famous seafood dish called paella. There will also be free time to enjoy the beach.
Other things to note:
The kayaking activity will be determined by the current sea conditions on the day of the experience.

I am a qualified mountain and kayak guide. I have been kayaking ever since I can remember, beginning on the river Vltava in Prague, Czech Republic. During my master studies in tourism management (EMTM), I lived in Denmark, Slovenia, and Spain and had the unique opportunity to learn the core skills in international tourism hospitality. I have spent 8 years in Catalonia and take full advantage, with my family, of the rough but magnificent coast of the Costa Brava for kayaking & paddle boarding explorations.

Nous avons réservé pour 4 personnes. Prise en charge de Barcelone pour ensuite se rendre sur le lieu de l’activité. Anecdotes sympa sur le chemin pour accéder à la plage et puis superbe expérience. Les explications sur les bases du kayak (1ère fois) étaient très claires et Stéphan a su s’adapter à notre niveau d’anglais (très basique). C’était une très bonne journée qui mettais fin à notre voyage à Barcelone. Endroits magnifiques. Je recommande ++ et recommencerais sans hésiter ! A bientôt !

Recommend to everyone! You will do 2+ hours of good mixed sea + coast kayaking, with fun cliff jumping! Stepan is an experienced, thoughtful host who will tell you things about culture and history👍🏻

The kayaking experience was great and Stepan was very patient in explaining all the basics, taking us “paddle by paddle” along the coast. 100% recommend!

We had an excellent time with Stepan today. The wind was a bit stronger than we were expecting and thus made for some interesting waves(!) but Stepan adapted well to meet the mixed needs of the group. A really great trip that we would highly recommend.

The kayaking experience was not good but great. Stephan's charisma, professionalism, and attention to detail made the trip delightful and satisfying. Stephan will take the time to teach you how to use and manage a kayak while having fun in a spectacular body of water. My family and I would like to recommend this trip as it was worth it. Our prospective for kayaking is now different, and we probably invest in one or two of them.
