Who we are
Kayaking Costa Brava
We are a company that engages exclusively in promoting sea kayaking.
We operate from different points on the Costa Brava and arrange guided sea kayak excursions taking in the most emblematic and captivating sights on the coastline of the Empordà.
Kayaking Costa Brava was founded back in 1993 when kayaking was still a totally unknown sport on our coastline, thus making us pioneers in the world of sea kayaking. We are a company that was created by lovers of canoeing and nature. From the outset, our objective has always been to make the kayak an option to discover the sea and the natural heritage of the Costa Brava in a different way at the same time. The quality of our services and canoeists’ safety has always been one of our distinguishing characteristics.
From the very beginning we selected areas whose scenic and natural interest and value make them idyllic settings for canoeing. We installed our first workstations on the coast of the Mountain range of Montgrí and Tamariu (1993), followed by Platja Castell (1997), and finally Portlligat (2000).
In 1997, we opened the shop in l’Escala, where we sell specialised material with expert assessment.
The entire Kayaking Costa Brava team is fully aware of the value of our natural environment and is totally committed to protecting it. This is why all our activities are conducted in a way totally environmentally and socially respectful way. With this objective in mind, in 2013 we implemented an Integrated Management System compliant with the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards in the centres where we engage in our activity: Portlligat, Montgó, Tamariu and Castell. In 2015, continuing to pursue or objective, we were awarded the Tourist Quality Commitment seal SICTED.
Another way of protecting these natural spaces is by getting to know them, and Kayaking Costa Brava is very well acquainted with them. The company’s guides-instructors are also qualified guides of the Nature Reserve of Cap de Creus (PNCP) and of the Nature Reserve of the Massif of Montgrí, the Medes Islands and Baix Ter (PNMMBT).
First and foremost, we offer a premium quality service provided by trained and qualified personnel. We have specialised material to adapt to the different types of services and clients to ensure that a kayak outing can be enjoyed by everyone.
