In Tuna Tour, in l’Ametlla de Mar, approximately 20 km from Miami Playa, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself with the largest tuna in the world. You can live one of the most exciting and natural experiences swimming among 200 kg tunas.
Tuna Tour has a luxurious two floor catamaran that will take us in just 20 minutes to the fish farm in open sea where these giant tuna fish are living. During the trip we can learn through explanatory videos how these tunas live, their history, how to fish them, how to breed them, feeding, the bluefin tuna gastronomy, export and many other interesting things about tuna.
Once there, we can see the large pools where the tuna live, 50 meters wide and 30 meters deep. You can feed tuna the special food, the crew brings: mackerel and sardines. When you start feeding, tunas rise from the deep water and you can see these giant tunas for the first time.

These 200 kg tunas at first may cause an impression of putting yourself at risk being so close, but even with their giant size, they are totally harmless. This activity is totally safe and we have never had to regret any accident, since tuna never touch humans and they do not even touch each other. The act of observing these huge creatures swiming within centimeters from you, will amaze anybody. The “swimming with tuna” experience takes aproximately 40 minutes.
After leaving the water and taking a shower, we will go on to taste bluefin tuna sashimi with soy sauce and accompanied by cava or wine. The catamaran will bring back the client to the port, after this enriching experience.
