Beautiful boat ride throughout the day. Our skipper Guillérmo was phenomenal, super helpful and professional. You can visit several beaches and coves. The sea in those areas is wonderful. In the middle of the day there is the possibility of having lunch with a salad, dessert and coffee. Drinks available throughout the day. The price of the trip was certainly correct for the quality of the service offered. Trip carried out in July 2023

We really enjoyed it on the boat! The underwater viewing wasn’t the absolute best, but it wouldn’t stop us from taking the boat trip again. Staff onboard were super friendly. Clean facilities also. Very informative commentary and would definitely recommend if spending some time in Mahon! :) (No idea where all the photos I took went, so have the single photo attached!)

Great activity, in a very friendly environment. Perfect for anyone who is curious to try something new 😊 the tasting at the end was delicious, and our own-handmade cheese is already on the way! Recommended!

Very small beach and feels like not a lot of time able to spend there as takes a while for everyone to get off the boat and then back on so was only 40mins able to spend on the beach
