I can recommend and hour spent cruising the canals of Empuriabrava. A delightful way of seeing how the well heeled spend their vacation and a great way to cool down on a hot day without going indoors! Some lovely properties and amazing boats.

Hello Mark, We have boats to go around the channels of Empuriabrava, but they can only sail during the day. We do not do the canal tour at night. Regards, Nieves Navarro (CANALS I MAR)
