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.

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.
