Owner description: Visit on a 3h tour the most beautiful coves of the South coast of Menorca on board of a comfortable boat that offers you the privilege of enjoying your tour in groups of maximum 10 passengers + our skipper. The excursion includes 2 swimming stops, drink, snack and basic snorkelling equipment (mask + snorkel).In the 3h tour we visit from Son Saura to Cala Escorxada. We also make a tour in the north coast going out from Fornells in tours of 4 hours in a boat for max. 7 passengers + our skipper. Visit our website or call us for further information. If you prefer not to share the boat with other passengers and also to enjoy a customised itinerary and doing it at your pace, you can rent the boat exclusively for 3h. Our skipper, Nano, biologist and passionate about sea and 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 beginning of October from the port of Cala Galdana in the south coast. We plan our tours depending on demand and availability. Contact us for further information. You can also download from our website detailed info of the different types of tours and prices.

Booked to go out on the boat with Nano on 29th August. The only downside to this trip was having to leave at the end ! We booked the boat for just 2 hours as we weren't sure how our 6 year old daughter would take to it. We shouldn't have worried- she spent the whole time sitting up front with a huge grin from ear to ear. Even though the trip was short we managed to visit 8 beaches, several caves and had 2 stops for snorkelling. The highlight for our 12 year old son was jumping in off the boat into the warm crystal clear water. In fact it was so good our little one actually got in and swam 50 yards from the boat to one of the beaches . Nano was a fantastic host - friendly
and knowledgeable with a quiet, gentle manner. It was the highlight of the holiday and something we would highly recommend to others.

Dear Visitors, thanks a lot for your kind and nice review. We are really happy to know you guys spent a good time with us. As you say the tour is just two hours but we go fast in between beaches so we have time enough to see the different coves quietly and stop for 15-20 minutes in two of them. To go fast doesn´t mean that we don´t stop if Nano, the skipper, see something special or remarkable during the tour and also we have time to visit a couple of caves and a nice rock arch. We hope we´ll have the chance to visit together the nice coast of Menorca. See you soon! The team of Menorca en Barco. Nano&Laura

We had a fantastic trip with Nano on Sunday 18th, discovering the remarkable beauty of the south coast. The whole experience was laid back, friendly, luxurious and safe. The small group size and Nano's knowledge, skill and friendly manner made for a relaxing and highly enjoyable couple of hours of exploring, sightseeing and snorkelling in the sparklingly clear waters. Really enjoyed the ventures into sea caves and through rock arches.
Many thanks from us all!!!
If you are going to Menorca.... do this boat trip.... it is excellent!
Thanks Nano (and Laura behind the scenes).

Dears Mick, Lynne and Jenna, thanks a lot for your nice review and for joing us this summer. We had a very good time together and as you say I wanted to say too thanks to Laura. Menorca en Barco is nothing without her, she is always behind the phone with a smile ready to answer all you need. But that´s not all, she also is in charge of shopping everything I need for the boat (drinks, snacks, meals etc.) She also spends hours every day answering e-mails and doing boring paperwork but all this is as important as what I do on board. It´s what I call the "dirty job" because she comes in the boat not as often as she would like to..... she loves the sea too!
Thanks a lot again for your positive feedback. We really need and love it!
Best regards from the Menorca en Barco Team: Nano&LAURA

Our family including four older teens had a fantastic time on this trip with Nano and have told everyone about their experience since returning home! The boat was fab and as we booked it just for our use we felt like celebs cruising round the glorious Menorca coastline! Nano took us to some beautiful beaches where we snorkelled and swam, he even swam around the boat on 'jellyfish duty' to ensure it was always safe to swim, the way he can pick up jellyfish and throw them away is amazing! He took us snorkelling through dark caves and leaping off high rocks into the sea - it really was a wonderful experience. We booked the half day trip and got a good four and half hours, with complimentary drinks and snacks throughout the trip. This day was definitely the highlight of our holiday. Booking with Laura was easy and straight forward and both Laura and Nano were at the boat to greet us when we arrived. You must book this trip, it is superb!

Dear family Richardson thank you so much for your nice review of our activitie. I really spent a great morning with you guys. To have teenagers on board always make me do things I don´t usuallly do (like jumping off the rocks) and makes me feel younger!! This summer we had a lot of jellyfish but they are quite easy to manage if ther is not a lot. I also have a net onboard so I can pick up those who are around the boat and people can swimm normaly.
I would love to have you again on board sometime! Take care of you and see you soon!!
Best regards from Nano&Laura

In August 2013 we experienced the Amazing!! boat trip with Captain Nano. Such a great start to our holiday and an experinece we won't forget. Just like the last person'e review i also reserved the 2 hour trip with Laura several months in advance and met with Nano at the date and time arranged without a problem. Nano was very friendly and a very skilled captain, visiting the amazing caves and beautiful beaches which are the jewels of Minorca. We loved everything about the trip and couldn't stop smiling. Would definately go back and book a longer trip next time.

Diolch yn fawr !! (Thank You!!) Nano & Laura
See you next year

We just today had an exclusive full day trip with Nano onboard his lovely boat! It was fantastic! There was just the three of us and we are all a little nervous when it comes to deep or dark water but Nano made us feel very safe - so safe in fact we even ventured into some of the caves which we would normally never do :-) Nano is very knowledgable of both the marine and land animals so we saw lots including a moray eel, peregrine falcons, goats, different species of wrasse and even a very curious amberjack!! Plus much more! The food which was put on for us was delicious and plentiful! Laura was very helpful when trying to book and arrange everything! Cant wait to see the underwater footage that Nano took!! Overall a wonderful experience with memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you both!

Dears Jennifer, Johanna and Megan, thank you so much for your nice and positive feedback. We really had a good time and we could explore together some of the secret places I just can show when I can spend more time with our customers. Today is raining in Menorca so I had a little time to answer your review and check also the video I took of the amberjack. It´s amazing and funny at the same time! I´ll try to uploaded to our youtube channel as soon as possible!
Thanks a lot again and we hope to have you again on board with us sometime! Hugs from the team of Menorca en Barco, Nano&Laura.
