Great service, great ambiance, great staff! On the way back I found the staff a bit too loud (encouraging passengers with drinks & loud noise/raised voices). I was feeling sick and tired, plus carrying a small dog sensitive to noise so found this rather annoying :-/

It was a really nice trip to Formentera. We went from Figueretas to Playa den Bossa and had to switch boats. All were really friendly and the Island was perfect. Good weather, nice beaches :) I can recommend to rent a moto on the Island. It was the best way to get from one place to another.

Absolutely fantastic trip to Formentera with Aquabus Ferry. Only thing we missed, was a clear discription, where to park free a Whole day in Ibiza and the timescedule was different on the day than on the emailticket. Nothing to complain. Formentera is a must.

Take the aquabus to formentera- it's awesome! We saw dolphins on the way over. The staff were friendly. The ride was a lot rougher than I anticipated. Luckily we didn't get seasick. The boats always run to time, so don't be late! If you're not in a rush, I would recommend taking the aquabus to and from Ibiza town instead of a taxi. Helpful suggestion- you can hire a bike through staff on the boat. I pre ordered mine through Ibiza spotlight and the staff on the boat weren't able to help me. I asked the very helpful lady in the aquabus booth on arrival, and it turned out we had to walk right round the marina to a yellow banner shop named Torres. Not far, but you don't see the sign until you nearly give up!! Definitely recommend hiring a bike, (in low season anyway) may be a little warm in summer. **** Ibiza Spotlight says: "Many thanks for your review. For your information, the bikes offered via Ibiza Spotlight are the same bikes offered by Aquabus on the boat."
