This was by far the best experience we have had on Menorca. After reading trip advisor I knew we had to book with Nano and Laura and the trip still surpassed our expectations. This boat trip is personal and informative, with some beautiful swimming spots.

What a fabulous way to spend my husband's birthday - Laura was wonderful with the organisation and communicating via Instagram was great as it was a surprise trip with my son and his girlfriend.

Our 2.5 hour trip in August started in sun/clouds but an unforseen thunderstorm soon picked up. Nano gave us the choice to go back or continue, and while the worst of the storm passed we anchored in a beautiful cave. Nano dived in and checked for jellyfish (there were lots in the water that week) before we all grabbed snorkels... More

We went for the 2.5 hour trip today and although the weather wasn't amazing we had a fantastic time. The skipper was really informative and showed us some impressive sites. Very friendly and helpful service when booking too. Highly recommended.

Thanks a lot Dominic for taking your time on writing about our boat tour. It´s true that not always the sea conditions are the best and the tours can be affected by different factors like wind, presence of clouds, jellyfish, boats in the coves, etc so we must be open-minded to these situations. According to our experience sailing in this... More

We had a fantastic time on our boat tour. From the start, Laura was really helpful and responsive with our booking. On the boat, Nano was knowledgeable about the island's beaches, coves, caves and ocean life. The coves we visited were absolutely pristine and the water was the perfect temperature. We loved snorkeling in Turqueta, Son Saura and two other... More
