While traveling, take in the pleasant sights from the water and indulge in a variety of fresh fruit and refreshing soft drinks.

    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

  • Palma Bay: Catamaran Cruise

    10. Palma Bay: Catamaran Cruise

    Embark on a cruise on a modern catamaran through beautiful Palma Bay. Depart from the Arenal Nautical Club and sail towards Cap Enderrocat and Cala Vella, which are protected environmental areas. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere throughout the cruise. Drop anchor at a beautiful location and enjoy 90-minutes for swimming or sunbathing. You can also do some snorkeling with all equipment provided.  Enjoy some finger food based on traditional Majorcan cuisine, with a drink included (if option selected).

    The trip was very pleasant, even if we cruise only for approx. 1 hour and 40 min (1 hour and 20 min we stayed in one place). The catamaran wasn't crowded maybe because we booked a sunset cruise. The food was average, nothing special but Sangria was good. I think staff should be more organized with this cruise (for example they didn't anchor the catamaran facing the sun during the swimming time). Overall, 8.7/10!
