Really great experience! Family of 4 with 2 teenagers - spent the day smiling and enjoying ourselves. Our departure was at 10am - you are asked to arrive no later than 9:40. We got to the boat at 9:10am and were the first in line, which allowed us to pick the seats we wanted - at the front of the boat. I don’t know what it was like for people in the middle or the back, under the shade. We bought snorkels for $10 each on board and swam in the sea. There weren’t really fish to see but it was still fun. There was a floating rope attached to the boat that you could hold onto if you wanted to. The food was great - we are veg and there was ample for us to eat. Apply sunscreen throughout the day to avoid sunburn like us. Bottles of water & soda were $2 each - less than I expected. The staff were kind and helpful and there were bathrooms. I’d definitely do it again (and again make sure I got there really early to get the pick of the seats.)

Outstanding! Best way to see the city. Good for the whole family. Our guide was amazing and knowledgeable of the city’s history and had great food and beach recommendations.

A very enjoyable boat trip, not too crowded and no free bar made this an ideal family activity. We had two swim stops, which was perfect for our 16yr old daughter.

This was a really enjoyable experience with Jackie! So many stories behind all the sights in Mallorca. and the Segways were fun, great to get around on those.

Very pleasant and relaxing trip. There was enough time to swim and enjoy the meal.
