Marbella Puerto Banús: Costa del Sol Sharing Sailing Cruise.

3. Marbella Puerto Banús: Costa del Sol Sharing Sailing Cruise.

Sit back and relax on a sailboat cruise from Marbella. See the Costa del Sol from the water and marvel at the vibrant marine wildlife in this area. Onboard, enjoy soft drinks, beer, wine or cava, and tuck into tasty snacks. Have fun standup paddle boarding, snorkeling, and swimming. Head out to sea and keep a lookout for dolphins that frequent these waters. There are two species of dolphins that permanently inhabit these waters: the common and the bottlenose dolphins. Stay aware to other species that pass sporadically on their migrations to the Strait of Gibraltar, including Atlantic bluefin tuna, Ocean sunfish, and sea turtles. Once you spot some of these marine animals, dive into the water to swim near them or stay on the sailboat to sail alongside them for a while. Jump into the cool waters for a refreshing dip or use the standup paddle board and snorkel equipment available.

What people are saying about Marbella

We had a wonderful trip. Everything was well organized. Meeting point and all important things were communicated to us in advance via WhatsApp. Then we went into the gorge with jumps, slides and pleasant swimming. Our guide Daniel was perfect, knowledgeable and funny. Gladly again. A little tip, get the shoes that are offered, they are best suited in the canyon.

Really very nice and cool to do in a beautiful environment. They give great guidance and at every jumping moment you can choose whether you want to do it or not. Highly recommended!

Great trip. Beautiful scenery, good instructors and hire equipment felt good quality. Groups weren't too large and we didn't feel rushed. First time canyoning - would do it again.

It was a really great tour with adrenalin kick and beautiful nature. The tour suits everyone. The guide was so cool and professional.

Juan was an amazing guide we had so much fun, this was my second time doing this activity
