Both us and the boys had amazing fun. This activity is definitely based for everyone. It was exhilarating as we sped across the choppy waves which left your stomach in your mouth.

I've seen the Marinas at Barcelona and Marbella and this is up with them. Plenty of activities to do and great restaurants and bars located within the marina.
