Inside the Nature Reserve there is the possibility to rent a sailboat for cruises. The feeling you have when traveling a sailboat is totally different of sailing in a motorboat. In a sailboat the crew members must participate in the tasks of navigation of the ship, turning this activity into an experience that combines the sailboat ride with the sport, with the basics of navigation and interaction with nature. The largest port in the Cabo de Gata, and that the highest concentration of boats is the marina of San José.
There are different companies that conduct tours in motor boats to transport tourists to the best places in the coast of the Natural Park. In the links section you will find directions. For 12 €, approximately, the boatmen of Las Negras will take you to the beautiful Cala de San Pedro beach whose visit is highly recommended.
Also in the marina of San Jose's can rent jet skis.
This modern sport combining sliding on the sea and the wind has taken hold in recent years in the province of Almeria thanks to strong easterly winds blowing many days in this area and offers ideal conditions for practicing this sport.
As you know the Kitesurf consists of sliding on the water with a table and tied to a kite, so that using the force of the wind speed and you can do stunts. It's a really fun sport but also very demanding so if we've never practiced it we must take a first class as an introduction to the materials and the handling of the kite, a few classes after we'll can enter to the water and slide down in a decently way.
There are companies windsurfing in the Nature Reserve that make classes for beginners.
Although this is not the Atlantic in autumn and winter when the wind blows harder and generates waves there are enough intrepid athletes to enter into sea to perform surf.
