    I LOVED IT! This was by far the best day of our holiday this year. The spots we visited were amazing, snorkelling in Formentera was a highlight. The paella was super yummy and I loved that they offered vegan burgers for people who don't eat meat. We had free drinks for 4,5 hours. We chose the later ferry back from Formentera to spend some time at the beach - I recommend everyone to do the same! The island is so beautiful!

    Very enjoyable and well worth the money paid. I went with my 17yr old son who just wanted to jump off the boat and dive into the crystal blue water, where as I enjoyed the leisurely boat trip and visit to the two beautiful coves, that we later returned to by bus as they were so stunning. The commentary along the route was informative, it’s nice to learn something about the area you are visiting from those that know the stories best. Soft drinks and snacks were plentiful, even for a hungry overgrown child, pastries, fruit and cakes were lovely. Staff on the boat were friendly and happy. Really good day out, thanks

A catamaran trip with three stops for a swim and one of them with a meal (pasta salad and German sausage, grilled tenderloin and breast with the possibility of repeating and with drinks). The crew is very nice and pleasant.

Super nice team - Pedro, Andres and Jordi! Great morning kayaking from San Tomás to Cala Galdana. We really enjoyed the challenge of toppling our kayak twice and the strong waves upon arrival.

Great day out, made 3 stops in lovely locations. The food was really good and staff were all really friendly

Incredible experience, the team were brilliant and made it really easy and enjoyable. Love to try it again.

Fun trip to see the island from a boat and watch the sunset.
