Very pleasant one-hour trip around Mahon harbour, the only way to see it properly. When we arrived at the booking office, a trip was about to leave, but the lady called ahead to say we were on our way. When buying the ticket, she had gently asked if either of us were over 60, and as we are she gave us a small discount. At first we were unsure what the purpose of the glass bottom was, until we stopped just outside the harbour and could see a multitude of fish through the glass. Pleasant staff, reasonably priced refreshments. A very relaxing way to spend a pleasant hour.

Dear cherylsJ4305OD, thank you very much for your kind commentary. We are happy that you enjoyed the harbour cruise and the underwater viewing with one of our yellow catamarans. Now -in the winter months- the boats are not operating, but starting from next year April, we will sail again through the beautiful port of Mahon. We hope to see you again during your next holidays. Kindest regards

Timely one hour long trips in a glass bottomed boat around a very pretty harbour that you would struggle to see in its glory by driving around the perimeter. Multi language announcements were clear. Sadly there was not much to see in the glass bottom experience once we were out of the harbour. Worth doing.

Hello dekofnot, Thank you very much for sharing your experience on board. The Port of Mahón has a rich history which is explained in several languages through the speakers. It's nice to relax and enjoy the nice views from the upper deck. And, when the weather is nice, it's interesting to take a look through the underwater cabins to discover the marine ecosystem of the harbour is alive, clean and well preserved. Kindest regards,

An interesting one hour trip over the old harbour of Mahon. What I liked most is the lower deck where you go to look at the fish on the open sea. Good for anyone who wants to know more about the city and its history.

Thank you very much, DanCabeza. We are happy that you enjoyed the tour with one of our yellow catamarans. Indeed, the harbour of Mahon is full of history and interesting old buildings and if you are lucky and the sea is calm you can also see the underwater landscapes and the fish. Kindest regards.

A fantastic way of sightseeing the old harbour of Mahon with information played from the speakers in few languages. It takes about an hour to reach open sea and come back. You can sit on the top deck with no roof, which was perfect because of the sunny and warm weather. One can also choose a lower deck with a roof. The most amazing thing was that you can go downstairs at the open sea to look at the water life through the windows that are placed below water level. The staff is very friendly.

Hi okoskinen, Thank you for your nice commentary! It's great to read you enjoyed the harbour cruise on board. The historical commentary (played in different languages depending on the passengers on board), the nice views from the upper deck, and the possibility to enjoy the sealife through the underwater cabins... one hour of fun and relax! See you next time you are in Menorca! Regards,

An excellent way to spend an hour touring the fantastic 2nd largest natural harbour. Interesting but not obtrusive multi -language commentary. We were rewarded with lovely views of sea bed and fish including a barracuda from the glass bottomed hull. Very friendly staff. Good value

Hi Mike804, Thank you for your nice commentary. It's great to read you had a good time on board. By this time of the year it's common to see barracudas close to the harbour (here we call them "espetón" and they're a bit smaller than the tropical ones, but still, so amazing to see them!). Regards,
