What people are saying about Formentera

Nice ride in a high speed dinghy. Beautiful coves where we bathed, masks and snorkels on board, water and beer to quench our thirst. The coast is very beautiful, green turquoise blue sea, with many fish. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our captain, Sergi, offered explanations on everything. Well done: a nice, well-organized activity!

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

It was a very cool trip! The captain was very knowledgeable and had lots of fun facts and tidbits. We were able to get off the boat for a swim and Formentor beach is beautiful!

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

Very entertaining great tour along the east coast to the north. Highly Recommended.
