This is a 10/10 experience for travellers who want to get to explore the Mallorca coastline without spending all day out on the water. We stopped twice to jump off the boat for a swim in crystal blue waters, which couldn’t have been better picked! The crew were professional and helpful - they even served beers, soft drinks and made fresh mojitos on board. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a morning in the best swimming spots!

Great views and drinks. Decent pizza snacks. Met some nice and interesting people on the boat. The dance floor was popping towards the end of the trip. You'll have a good time if you come with some friends.
