Visit with us the most beautiful coves of the south coast of Menorca. Have a relaxing swim, practice snorkelling or just sunbathe while you listen to chill out music having a cold drink. The best and more pleasant way to know the charms of Menorca's coast. The basic trip includes two stops to have a swim, one drink, snack and basic snorkelling equipment (mask & snorkel). If you prefer you can also rent the boat exclusively. Our skipper, Nano, biologist and a lover of nature makes comments along the tour about history, environment and local culture in spanish and english language. We go out every day from Easter to begining of November from the port of Cala Galdana, 7km south Ferreries. We plan our tours day by day depending on demand and availability.

My mother and I booked this trip via email enquiries whilst staying in S'algar. Laura the administrator was very helpful providing us with buses and timetables and other useful information. We did a four hour trip based on sharing the boat but were the only two passengers. We were not charged any extra. The boat was very nice and comfy.... More

Dears Emma and Sue, thanks a lot for sharing your experience with us in this travelers community. Going with less passengers than usual is something that sometimes happens at the begining and the end of the season when there is not so many tourists on the island. In this situations there is no extra cost for our visitors. With one,... More

This was our second trip out with our very pleasant and informative skipper, Nano. We were staying at the Audax and as we had been on a trip with Nano previously, we palled up with some other guests and introduced them to the delights of spending an afternoon of total relaxation. We were 100% sure that they would all enjoy... More

What an amazing experience we had on this boat tour. We booked the exclusive tour which cost a little bit more but not much and gave us the whole boat to ourselves.

I was worried the weather would not permit us to go on this trip but luckily we had sunshine and were able to go on Saturday 24th October. We met Nano our captain in the river at Cala Galdana. The boat is wonderful, its modern and clean, I'd say it holds roughly 10 passengers. There is a ladder at the... More

We booked online, having arrived in Menorca. Booking was easy and when we turned up at the boat Nano was expecting us. We were lucky enough to be the only couple so had the boat to ourselves, but there would have been plenty of space on board for more, without being crowded. Nano took us to the gorgeous coves on...
