Formentera Explorer

If you are looking for an easy way to discover Formentera, this is it. The boat trip is ideal for everyone from families with small children, to couples, to groups of friends – everyone is welcome aboard.

Enjoy this unique boat trip to the beautiful island of Formentera on a traditional Ibizan wooden boat. Cruise the crystalline waters stopping first at the pristine islet of Espalmador, followed by the exquisite Ses Illetes beach ending up in the port of La Savina, where you can freely discover the island.

The tour includes a delicious lunch, open bar offering a variety of drinks as well as flexibility on boat departure times from Formentera, meaning you can chill and then discover the wonder of the island at your own pace. There's also a special gift awaiting you when you take the trip.

On the way, you will take in the deep blue sea of the Mediterranean, admiring the landmarks and dramatic open scenery before dropping anchor at Espalmador, where you can bathe in the crystal-clear waters as the chef rustles up a delicious of home made Ibizan paella, with fresh fruit to finish.

After bathing, you can make use of the bar and enjoy a minty mojito or glass of sangria or you can choose from a range of wines and soft drinks as well as ice-cold beers.

Your next stop is the beach of Ses Illetes, voted the best beach in Europe. Relax on the deck of the boat and top up your tan whilst admiring the beautiful crystalline sea. If you are feeling active, you can dive straight into the water, swim out to pretty islets or go snorkelling to see the marine life down below.

That's not all. From Ses Illetes, you will travel on to Formentera's port, La Savina arriving at around 17:00 h. You can then choose to motor back to Ibiza at that time or step off and discover the island at your own pace and catch the sunset.

You can go back at the two other return times the same evening at either 19:00 or 21:00 h.

With this trip you really do get to see all the best sides of Formentera, so get booking to enjoy Ibiza's sister island to the max.

A great day out to the Island. The chef was a fun personality & made delicious Paella. The boat ride back could have been a bit faster (other boats were passing us). ***Ibiza Spotlight says: "Many thanks for your comment. Please take note that this is a catamaran which uses its sails when the weather conditions are favourable. We consider this environmentally friendly"***

Great fun day out with a free bar and a proper paella made for the guests by members of the crew. If you want a bit f fun sit at the front on the netting but be prepared to get wet. Would have like the catamaran to be as big as others that we saw in the same harbour but thats hardly a complaint. Chances to ride on a banana and plenty of swim stops made it a great day out.

I had a wonderful time on the Formentera Explorer. We had an issue because we booked through a secondary company and they hadn't relayed the message to the people on our boat, however they still got us on. The boat was all you can drink and the captain was excellent at making mojitos. He took the time to crush everything up perfectly. The paella was delicious and there was plenty for everyone and even seconds. The banana boat ride was fun. Formentera was beautiful and it was nice to swim there. I loved snorkeling there but wished there had been more fish. However the captain did throw something in that attracted some more fish. Not a lot of people danced on our boat but I got the impression that usually there is a lot of dancing. All in all everyone on our boat seemed to have a good time meeting lots of other people on the boat.
