COSTA BOAT TRIPS offers you a trip that is specially designed for the younger age group family an amazing and wonderful day out which includes snorkelling in a special snorkelling area perfect for young children in a shallow cove where we can moor the boat closer to the reefs and shallow water. You still go to the Unesco marine reserve and the waterfalls and get all the sight seeing, we just make sure your littles ones have the perfect day in waters right for their abilities and age group.
The snorkelling trip along the Axarquia coast that we’ll take you on is really great fun and an awe-inspiring 4 hour magnificent trip out on and under the water.
On departure from our Marina we head eastwards towards Torrox and Nerja along the stunning Axarquia coast passing by the small and beautiful Spanish seaside villages of Algarrobo, Mezquitilla, Lagos, El Morche. These small and beautiful villages are located seaside on this coast by small Bays which are ideal for snorkelling or just swimming. The water is pristine clear, very calm, shallow and ideal for snorkelling or for those of you who just want a really lazy day, hanging out and just chillin’ on the boat with ice cold drinks and jumping off the back of the boat in to the beautiful clear cool water when you get too hot!
These are outstanding locations and are great for those not so experienced in snorkelling or swimming and also very safe for children to snorkel and swim. This area is an option if you prefer to spend time here snorkelling rather than up in Maro, you can decide where you’d prefer to be and we’ll head on over there.
Moving on towards Nerja and Maro we continue along the coast arriving next at the magnificent Torrox Lighthouse. Passing by the lighthouse we continue on our stunning trip along the coast to the famous Balcony of Europe at Nerja.
We then pass by the legendary Balcony of Europe at Nerja which was originally home to the watchtowers of a 9th-century defensive fortification, used by the Moors to monitor the coastline and protect against pirates, smugglers and marauders sailing around the southern Spanish coastline.

Leaving Nerja behind us we continue eastbound passing by Nerja’s spectacular Burriana Beach and into the magnificent and pristine waters of Maro Waterfalls located in the Marine Reserve Park. A UNESCO protected area.
Along this most unique part of the southern coast of Spain, you will observe that the landscape dramatically changes at Nerja and the rugged rocks and cliff formations that come into view as we approach Maro will seem like we’ve stepped back in time, into the Jurassic era.
An awesome and unique sight to this area and not to be missed!
Seeing the astonishing scenery and flora that only exists in this part of southern Spain is, without doubt, best appreciated when seen from our boat while viewing the spectacular backdrop of the Sierra mountains which also protect the Costa del Sol from the cold Northern winds.
You will see that the coast of Costa del Sol shows an amazing and wide diversity of landscapes: beaches, cliffs, estuaries, bays and dunes and stunning landscapes. The beauty of this area is amazing. See our gallery here
Dolphins. While heading eastbound on our trip towards the amazing Marine Park we’ll be keeping a keen eye out for the dolphins. Two of the most common species of dolphins in this area being the bottlenose dolphin and the striped dolphin. They can be seen all along this part of the Axarqúia coast sometimes as we pass through the Torrox lighthouse area moving towards the famous Balcony of Europe at Nerja before reaching the wonderful Maro Cerro Marine Park Reserve.
An exhilarating and truly amazing day out.
