Boat trips and boat tours in Mallorca

Whether you go out on a yacht, a motor boat, an excursion boat or a catamaran - you should definitely make sure you do a boat tour during your holiday in Mallorca.

Catamaran Trip

A catamaran trip is a spectacular experience that you should not miss out on. Like the sailors from bygone centuries, you let the wind take you as you explore the most beautiful coastal regions of the island. Tours set off from marinas as your marine adventure begins. In some cases, the organisers offer a pick-up and drop-off service, which picks you up at your hotel or holiday home and drops you back off once the trip has finished. Stopovers for snorkelling, swimming and for barbecues are all part of the package. One notable highlight is a sunset boat tour off the west coast. While the red sun sinks into the sea, enjoy the romantic atmosphere with a delicious cocktail on the ship's deck.

Bathing, bay hopping and dolphin tours

Bay hopping is an activity that is particularly popular among young people. These boat trips allow you to check our different bays and some of the ships are even equipped with their own water slides, where you slide directly into the cool Mediterranean water. Mostly the boat tours are party central and most have a DJ providing entertainment and a lively atmosphere. Dolphin tours are also popular. The grey marine mammals usually like to frolic in the open sea. These boat trips use motorboats with a high-horsepower diesel engine. Most tour operators promise you have a 95% chance of seeing dolphins in the wild. Mostly the tours start in the early morning hours before sunrise and last between three and four hours.

Speed boat to Cabrera

The island of Cabrera is located on the southern coast of the Mediterranean island and is a popular destination for day trippers. Boat trips to the island leave from Colonia Sant Jordi several times a day. Taking a speedboat to Cabrera is definitely an unforgettable occurrence. The crossing with the sleek watercraft takes only 15 minutes. On the island you have time for swimming or to explore on foot. After the stay you will be picked up again and taken by speed boat to the Blue Grotto. As you enter the water cave you can admire the blue, glowing rock walls. If you want, you can also take a dip in the crystal-clear water in this breath-taking coastal region. It is advisable to order a ticket in advance as seats in the boats fill up quickly.

Discovery tour by rental boat

You could also rent your own boat to explore the Mallorcan coast. Best of all, you do not even need a sailing or sport boat licence. Small rental boats with an engine power of up to 15 horse power can be hired without a licence. However, the motor boats are not necessarily seaworthy and are not available in rough seas and high waves. The owners will give you tips on particularly attractive coastal regions to visit. You will learn which bays are best for snorkelling and where you can hope for the best deserted beaches. The boats are rented by the half-day or the day and can accommodate up to four people.
