Immerse yourself among tunas

Envision swimming with these incredible creatures!

Get ready for a sea adventure in Ametlla de Mar that’ll keep you hooked till the very end! We kick things off with the main act—an immersive swim with tunas at the Marine Farms. Imagine mingling with these incredible underwater stars—it’s a marine party you won’t forget.

Before making a splash, we’ll shift gears as the catamaran turns into a floating sushi haven. Tuck into the freshest tuna sashimi with the Mediterranean as your dining room. It’s a taste of the sea like never before.

After this mind-blowing experience, we’re topping it off with a treat for your taste buds. We’ll head to a local restaurant right here in town to dive into a thematic menu, starring the savory and unique star of the day, among other delicious offerings.

But guess what? We’ve got a bonus track lined up for you. After our culinary escapade, we’re making our way to the port of Ametlla de Mar for an exclusive encore—the fish auction. It’s the final act, a behind-the-scenes peek at the hustle and bustle as the day’s freshest catches go up for grabs.

Almadraba tuna fishing

Almadraba, derived from the Arabic word “matrabah,” traces its roots back to the Phoenician era. This traditional and sustainable form of tuna fishing has been meticulously preserved, passed down through generations along the shores of the cadiz coastlines, strategically positioned in the Strait of Gibraltar.

At the heart of Almadraba lies an intricate network of fixed nets and underwater chambers strategically positioned along the migratory routes of Bluefin tuna. These vast underwater labyrinths, meticulously constructed with eco-friendly materials, create a labyrinthine path that directs the tuna towards a central holding chamber.

The captured tuna from Almadraba are celebrated for their exceptional quality and flavor. Recognized as some of the finest tuna in the world, they become the star of culinary masterpieces. From the renowned ventresca to delicate sashimi, chefs worldwide prize Almadraba tuna for its rich taste and buttery texture.

The distance from Barcelona to Ametlla de Mar is approximately 150 kilometers (about 93 miles). The travel time can vary depending on the mode of transportation and traffic conditions. By car, it typically takes around 1.5 to 2 hours to reach Ametlla de Mar from Barcelona. 

Despite our tours being entirely private, in the case of the “Swim with Tuna” experience, the boat and the time spent swimming with the tuna will be shared with other people. However, meals, transportation, and the visit to the fish market are entirely private. If you wish to do it individually, please contact [email protected], and we will send you a proposal.

Our tours are private and personalized, but the adaptation of tapas and portions to different preferences or food allergies depends not only on us but also on the establishments we visit. When making your reservation, please let us know about any dietary restrictions you have so that we can plan accordingly and select places that best accommodate these types of diets.

If you are unable to attend your tour reservation and you inform us with at least 72 hours’ notice, we will refund 80% of the amount. If you notify us with less than 72 hours’ notice, we will refund 50% of the amount, or we will do our best to try to find another date for the tapas tour.

The tour includes private transportation to and from Barcelona, brand new snorkeling equipment, boat access, sashimi tasting, a menu at the restaurant with regular drinks (include a bottle of wine), and a visit to the auction. Please note that this tour does not include a guide, but the driver will drop you off at the designated locations. 

You should bring at least a swimsuit, flip-flops, and a towel. We’ll take care of the snorkeling equipment, and you can take it with you after use since, for hygiene reasons, we never reuse this type of gear. On the boat, you’ll have the opportunity to change and put on dry clothes.

Yes, people of all ages can attend the activity. In the case of minors, they must be accompanied by a guardian, and alcoholic beverages will not be served to them. Children under 9 years old will not be charged, although the drinks they have must be paid for separately.

Although we’ll be wearing a lifeguard jacket, it is highly recommended to be comfortable with swimming. However, it is not mandatory to get into the water; you can simply watch the tuna views from the boat.

We look forward to providing you with an enriching and memorable culinary experience in Barcelona!

What our customers say


A 100% amazing tapas tour in Barcelona. We booked the Tapas Tour experience with this company, and it couldn't have gone better. They took us to places away from the crowded tourist areas, and all the bars we visited were very special and authentic. The quality of the tapas surprised us. What we liked the most was the guide; we ended up becoming friends and exchanging phone numbers. Highly recommended. 100%

It has been a fantastic journey!!! The passion expressed by the collaborators you have chosen has been fantastic, and that generates a general sense of pleasure throughout the trip!!! THANK YOU!!!!


We booked a private tapas tour and enjoyed every moment of it. Diego took excellent care of us, and we had the opportunity to sample exquisite tapas and wine. It was so fantastic that we also scheduled a winery visit with them. They took us to a magnificent bodega where we had a memorable tour with a guided tasting paired with a delicious lunch just for us.
