Shrimp and wine degustation in Palamos at the sailing excursion along Costa Brava
Combine a sailing trip from Palamos with the culinary strengths of the Costa Brava. On board a traditional schooner you can enjoy in two senses: either by tasting freshly caught prawns during a daily sailing excursion or once a week a special kind of wine tasting. Two underwater wines are opened for you on board the sailing ship - matured in the sea for six months. Compare the rare tastings with two varieties matured in the wine cellar and make your personal choice. The coastal region around Palamos stands for numerous specialities that have to do with the sea. And where could a tasting of these regional products be more authentic than right there.
Look forward to this fascinating excursion in Palamos to the fish market and a subsequent sailing excursion at Costa Brava, where you'll get to know more about the region and the culture of Palamos. Palamos has a long tradition in the fishing industry and a local fish market, where you can buy the freshly caught goods of best quality every day. This is why you'll first head off with the guide to the fish market of Palamos for buying 150 g shrimps for each person. Thereby you'll not only gain a little insight into the Lonja, the the buzzing fish market, but the guide will also tell you lots of interesting facts about the fishing industry in Palamos at a short round tour through the harbour.
Now it's time to board: Depending on the number of passengers on the day, you'll either sail with a traditional sailing boat with Latin sail or in an affectionately maintained schooner - both sailing boats are more than 100 years old and they'll enchant you with their fascinating history. The crew will tell you some anecdotes about the sailboat during the boat trip along Costa Brava, while the coastal line passes by slowly. Delight in the fresh sea breeze and take in all the warm sunshine you'll get on the way to the crystal-clear Cala Castell, where you'll be anchoring for an extensive swim break.

Customer Reviews Spanish culinary delights: sailing with shrimp or wine tasting
An original walkIt has been an afternoon out of the ordinary with a visit to the market and a stop to swim with snorkeling included. The prawns have been delicious, the staff -all of them- have been extremely attentive. Actually everything has been excellent, it has been a very original walk, but I take away a star because the price for children seems expensive.
Un paseo originalHa sido una tarde fuera de lo común con una visita en el mercado y una parada be baño hasta con esnorquel incluido. Las gambas han estado deliciosas, el personal -todo- ha sido extremadamente atento. En realidad todo ha estado excelente, ha sido un paseo muy original, pero le quito una estrella porque el precio para niños me parece algo caro.
