Everything was amazing! The staff, the food and the beautiful skyline of Palma. The only thing that we didn’t really like was that there were too many people on board. Apart from that, we really enjoyed the tour!!
Be welcomed by the crew at the pier in Palma and board the modern catamaran and set forth away from the marina on a southward sea journey. If conditions allow it, the sails will be used instead of the engine so you can experience sailing on the open sea. Anchor at Cala Vella and admire the incredible crystal clear water. Enjoy free time here to go swimming and snorkeling, or just sun-bathe from the deck listening to relaxing music. During this time your crew will prepare a generous gourmet buffet using fresh ingredients. The buffet includes delicious dishes such as ginger and mango chicken, roasted black pork with rosemary potatoes, dates with bacon, beef meatballs with Thai sauce, seafood salad. There will also be a large variety of vegetarian dishes, such as vegetable curry pie, pepper and tomato salad, and mixed fruit. After your meal, the catamaran will set sail again. On the w...
First of all , it was not overbooked - not full capacity so that there is enough room to maintain distance and be comfortable while enjoying the trip and activities . The boat is very clean and the staff are all complying with restrictions - face masks and cleanliness The destination was nice for the swim and snijding , the food was above expectations - clean and tasty . Great drinks available if you wish to buy extras like non alcoholic cocktails .
Make the most of your stay in Palma by exploring the coastline on a fun daytime boat experience with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks. Meet at the Barca Samba to board the vessel before taking in the magnificent views over Palma Bay, Palma Cathedral, and Tramuntana Mountains as the boat crisscrosses the harbor. After an hour, the anchor will be dropped in the first beautiful bay in the south of the island where you can jump into the cool water and swim or snorkel. Enjoy a huge, buffet-style lunch that is provided onboard, along with an open bar serving free soft drinks and water for the entire trip. Feel free to watch live sports on satellite TV, listen to the resident DJ that will play some international beats. Head back to the port enjoying Palmas beautiful panorama views after a 4-4.5-hour boat experience.
Really enjoyed our time on this trip, I need the guitarist for my wedding! :) it was a fun experience with a nice view on Palma and good music, I was also happy about the first stop where we could swim/dive/snorkel for about an hour. All in all I can recommend the tour if you are looking to spend some fun hours on the water.
Embark on a cruise on a modern catamaran through beautiful Palma Bay. Depart from the Arenal Nautical Club and sail towards Cap Enderrocat and Cala Vella, which are protected environmental areas. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere throughout the cruise. Drop anchor at a beautiful location and enjoy 90-minutes for swimming or sunbathing. You can also do some snorkeling with all equipment provided. Enjoy some finger food based on traditional Majorcan cuisine, with a drink included (if option selected).
The trip was very pleasant, even if we cruise only for approx. 1 hour and 40 min (1 hour and 20 min we stayed in one place). The catamaran wasn't crowded maybe because we booked a sunset cruise. The food was average, nothing special but Sangria was good. I think staff should be more organized with this cruise (for example they didn't anchor the catamaran facing the sun during the swimming time). Overall, 8.7/10!
The Palma Bay excursion will leave the port of Palma and sail to a beautiful cave in the south of the Bay, either La Cueva Verde or Illetas, depending on the wind. On arrival, you can enjoy a nice swim and a delicious selection of Iberian cold cuts, accompanied by a non-alcoholic drink. After that, the catamaran will sail to Cala Vella or Portals Vells, idyllic beaches with crystal clear waters. Here the staff will serve a delicious barbecue prepared on-board, while you enjoy relaxing in this amazing place. Afterwards, you will sail back to the port on this beautiful catamaran. Snorkeling, kayaking, and surf paddling equipment is available on-board for you to use. If you wish to enjoy a shorter version of this tour, choose the adult-only sunset option, during which you will be able to enjoy the amazing sunset. There will be a shorter swim break and you will enjoy tapas and canapes inst...
This was by far the best boat trip I have ever been on. We went for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. The food was amazing, and I mean really good-restaurant quality. The boot was immaculate. The guides were informative and kept us all up to date with where we were going, history, etc. They made us a fantastic non alcoholic cocktail too - wow. We got canapés, BBQ and even dessert! I would so recommend this. Other companies had 60 plus people crammed on their boats-ours had 20. Lots of space

Live the ancient tradition of Arab baths. Give yourself space to disconnect from the daily stress and routine and enjoy reconnecting with your inner self. Discover this place of silence, relaxing music, contrasts, incense, and soft light. You can start immersing yourself in the water, then enter the hot steam room with eucalyptus and complete the circle with a refreshing bowl of water on you. You can lie on the hot stone bench and enjoy a warm mint tea. The session includes a massage. You can choose between a 15, 30, 45, or 60-minute massage or you can have the full ritual with a skin purification on a hot stone bed (15 minutes). The time you will send in the Arab Bath will depend on the length of the massage you choose.
Super relaxing and peaceful. Lots of space due to COVID. The massage was amazing. Unfortunately, some of the guests were not observing the silence.

So positive, fun, informative, cheerful, you can tell she loves her job and I didn’t want to stop hanging out with her. She’s amazing!!!!! As for the tour itself, wow … I was blown away by the incredible views. All the destinations were beautiful and even the drive to each destination had me in awe because the scenery is to die for! Oh and Birgit had a little surprise for us (Mallorcan traditional pastry) which was soooooo yummy! N the olive oil experience was pretty cool. I loved learning about the process of making olive oil and supporting the locals … P.S. make sure you taste the orange juice. It was the BEST OJ I ever had in life. Definitely recommend this tour!

This was a fun experience! I absolutely loved it. Maria was really nice, helpful, educated us about the food and made everyone feel included. I loved that it was a small group too. Only 6 of us and it was perfect. As soon as we sat down, Maria poured us wine. I think we finished 3 bottles lol … we made suquet de sobrassada, Spanish tortilla, paella and cream Catalan. Everything was absolutely delicious! Loved this experience and highly recommend.
