This is billed as a half day activity but by the time you factor in the time to leave the hotel and return it's really a full day.

It's a great experience and does what it says on the tin. The boat sails out across the bay to Cala Vella. It's quite chilled out. On arrival the boat moors (with a number of other pleasure boats there) and you have over an hour and a half to swim / snorkel. They have snorkels / masks on the boat for passengers use with a deposit. The swimming is wonderful in crystal clear waters and plenty of fish to see. Whilst swimming the crew prepare a barbecue and you eat on the boat with drinks included. There is time to swim some more and the boat then sails back. It's simple but a great way to while away a day. We enjoyed it.

Only if the bus picked us up! It was due to pick us up at 9:10 am. We waited at the bus stop from 9:00 am and the bus never arrived. Having called them at 9:20 am, I was told that I was laying and the bus was waiting for us at 9:10 am. It is indeed a 'MAGIC' invisible bus. As the boat trip didn't start until 10:00 am, I was told to get a taxi to Palma and they could not even guarantee paying for the taxi. Please don't book this trip if you want to enjoy your holiday! Very stressful experience unnecessary on holiday!

The actual sailing was lovely with the cooling breeze helping to keep the heat of the day at bay.

The swimming in Cala Vella was also good however I couldn't get over how disinterested the young crew were. They had as little interaction as possible with the passengers starting with making us wait in the sun and its heat to board. They did work hard but obviously weren't bothered if you enjoyed it or not.

Safety instructions were brief and there was only one toilet.

I wouldn't recommend this company but whether others are any better is the question.

With this trip you get what they promise; A boattrip, food and a chance to swim.
This trip was no more or less than expected. The crew (and booking team) was nice, the food was as usual on theese trips and all in, the day was good.
If I should have rated the trip better, there should have been more that one swimming stop. We stopped away from the beach, so one could swim around or stay on the boat for the three hours we were out, it would have been nice to stay close to a shore, where one could swim too. PS. There was a lot of people on board, but it was not overfilled.

This is a money machine. There were more than 60 people on the boat so not everyone could sit comfortable and you felt extremely claustrophobic. The noise from the Ibiza kind of music and the huge amount of people took everything that could have been pleasurable about being out at sea away.
The crew didn't say welcome, explain the places we were going, when lunch was served or any safety matters whatsoever. When the boat changed from the first place to another and people had been swimming around in a bay, the crew didn't ring a bell, yell or in any other way warn that we were now going to sail away again. They didn't even ask if everyone had their party with them. Incredible!! We could have been left at sea and they would not have known.
The food was awful. I would not even give it to my dog. It tasted like it has been cooked more than once and if some of it was leftovers from previous days. I had ordered glutenfree when we booked the boat but this they had not cared to follow either so I could barely eat anything and we were stuck out at sea for 5 hours.
I will just warn everyone to not go on this terrible cruise as it is a complete wast of money as well as your precious holiday time.
