Valencia, Spain-port

Valencia was established by the Greeks and later occupied by the Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths and Arabs. A 15th century artistic movement here gave the world spectacular paintings, sculptures, and jewels. Today a “City of Arts and Sciences,” Valencia offers visitors remarkable samples of modern architecture, alongside such notable classics as the 13th century Cathedral and Chapel of the Holy Chalice. Built on the site of a mosque which was originally a Roman temple the Chapel contains the chalice which legend says was used by Christ at the Last Supper. For a more historic view, take in the Quart Towers, a former gate of the medieval wall, built in 1444; and Serranos Towers, a former prison surrounded by a moat and built around 1391.

Exclusive Catamaran Sail & Snorkel

Moderate Activity/Walking Regent Choice

Duration: 3 1/2 hours

Tour Code: VLC-009

After your expert crew briefs you on your sailing adventure, board your spacious catamaran and depart from the pier. Out at sea, you may rest in the shade, admire the view or sunbathe on the nets across the catamaran's bow.

During your sail, your catamaran will stop so you may enjoy a relaxing swim in the ocean. Snorkel masks will be available on board, so you may discover the underwater world up close, if you choose.

While onboard, you will also be treated to drinks and delicious "paella," a Spanish dish created in Valencia. Afterwards, you will sail back to the pier and return to your ship.

Please note: Guests must be in good physical condition and be able to negotiate steps and gaps to embark and disembark the catamaran with little to no assistance in order to participate. It is recommended that guests wear a swimsuit, cover-up, sunglasses, hat and sunscreen, as well as wear flat, comfortable shoes. Your ship's escort will provide towels. As you will get wet on this excursion, any electronic devices (such as MP3 players, cell phones, cameras, etc.), as well as any valuable items must be stored in a sealable, waterproof dry bag or left on board the ship. Any damage occurring to these items is the responsibility of the guests. Guests who wish to snorkel should be familiar with wearing snorkel equipment and swim comfortably in deep water or in currents, which may occasionally be present. Although the operator will supply snorkel equipment, it is recommended that guests bring their own mask, snorkel and fins. Alcoholic beverages should not be consumed prior to taking part in any water activities. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed. A minimum number of bookings is required for this excursion to operate. The operation of this excursion is dependent on prevailing weather conditions. Snorkeling time is approximately 3 hours.
