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.On a bit more than 2 hour tour, visit 8 of the most beautiful coves of the south coast of Menorca. The trip includes two stops to have a swim, one drink, snack, basic snorkelling equipment (mask & snorkel)and relaxing music. If you prefer you can also rent the boat exclusively for a 1/2 day or full day.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. Timetable: This is the timetable for high season. In low season or when the number of customers is lower, we plan our tours day by day depending on demand.09:30 - 11:3011:30 - 13:3014:00 - 16:0016:30 - 18:3018:30 - 20:30 « less

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...

We were taken there by friends who have a summer residence on the island and are friends of the owners of the boat, Nano and Laura. The trip along the coast is wonderful, and Nano, the skipper, as a biologist, enhances the trip by explaining the major attractions and details of the local fauna and fish. Laura gave us some...

I did the 2hr tours with my wife and we were very welcome and well treated by the staff. Beautiful places in a boat perspective, the guide are very friendly and Laura was very careful with us in our contact by phone or email. I definitely recommend them.

We booked by e-mail, having read excellent reviews beforehand. As we are quite new to travelling abroad, we did need to phone on one occasion - Laura was very helpful and put our minds at ease.

We had a great couple of hours on our boat trip. 2 adults and 4 children (6-11 years with one nervous about snorkelling). Nano was so knowledgeable. A real reassuring presence but also exciting, picking sea urchins up to show the boys etc. The boat was fabulous and very clean. Cold drinks and amazing olives were perfect in the heat.... More
