It was an amazing experience, even with a kid we enjoyed alot, ride was comfortable and our Captain ensured that we see all important points and some really nice beaches. The only stop is at the Formentor beach but that is pretty small stopover of only 30 mins, it would be nice if more time could be given for water activities

What a cool experience. Unfortunately, I felt very nauseous afterwards. They can't do anything about that, I bought pills for nausea for the return trip.

Superb excursion with magnificent landscapes, very beautiful beaches/coves and a very nice and funny pilot! Beer and water available! I recommend

Formentera is a beautiful island with real white beaches and beautiful blue sea water! Definitely a must to visit this island!

Excellent day out. Highly recommend a ferry around time of sunset
