The boat trip is exactly as described. The staff are so friendly and las calas are so beautiful. My family and I weren’t expecting to have a good paella but it was incredibly delicious, so yummy. The only negative side is also the paella. I would suggest to add a vegetarian option or one with just meat/chicken, as I am allergic to seafood and couldn’t enjoy the paella, so unfortunately I was hungry for the rest of the day.

Amazing trip! Staff were excellent, the locations were really good. I’d recommend the extra 15 minute walk around the coast. Cala des Talaier was incredible. Would highly recommend!

Very nice trip and we even got to see some dolphins also El Torqueta becah is by far the best, if you don't like fish paella(or allergic) you can ask for a replacement

Just a little dive through an small entrance but ist worth for the view inside.

Was really fun experience a different one to! Really enjoyed the snorkelling
