Swimming with Tuna, then eating them for lunch. I'm so conflicted.

By this time, you’ve realized that I am not a TECHNICAL writer. At all. Whatsoever.

My blog posts are more about my personal enjoyment (and Dan’s too) of life’s experiences, than trying to explain any intricate details. If you ask me what any movie that I’ve seen is about….fuggedaboutit. If you want to know if it was worth spending your hard earned pay…I’ve got an opinion.

Our recent visit to Tuna Tour- L’Ametlla De Mar was no exception._DSC9010

As an OVER 50-something traveller, who lives life to its fullest, I give you the top down descriptions of fun things that you too, can enjoy. If you want details, facts and figures…….I’m afraid that the combination of ADHD, combined with Senior Moments, and a little short term memory loss thrown in, is going to prevent that from happening.

I can tell you:

  • How To Get There
  • Where To Stay
  • When To Go
  • Why It’s Fun
  • Who To Contact For More Info!

During our TBEX Europe 2015 FAM Trip, “Feel The Water of Terres de l’ebre, Dan and I were fortunate to spend some time with Lauren Aloise, of Devour Spain.

Lauren is a technical writer and you can read her explicit, and beautifully written details of the Tuna Tour, in her blog post here:

_DSC9048We swam with tuna, made friends with the tuna, and then ate the tuna’s friends for lunch at No Stress Restaurant in L’Ametlla De Mar, Spain.

As we pulled into town, we noticed they were dismantling the Bluefin Tuna Festival 2015. Turns out we “missed it by this much.” We’ll have to go back to check it out!

But that was OK, because we were about to embark on our own TUNA FISHING TOUR.

First things first. The Captain and team welcomes us with champagne. We rode all the way out to frigid deep sea waters.

Squeezing into a wetsuit was a little challenging.

The water was cold, but the Bloggers all dove in!

After the swim, we were treated to a very many course lunch with wine, dessert and a lot of fun chatter and food photos.

The children loved watching the fishermen.

They were also a little perturbed and intrigued by Bobble Vicki.

  • What an interesting tour. I am not comfortable in water (unless I can touch bottom with my head and neck above it), so there’s no way I’d don the wet suit and swim with the tuna, but the food certainly looks inviting.
