Aquabus | Sunday boat trip to Es Vedra

Every Sunday morning Aquabus Boat Trips invites you to discover the magnificent rock of Es Vedrà with picnic, drinks and snorkelling all included.

Aquabus welcomes you aboard one of their traditional Ibizan boats for a magical 4-hour trip to the famous Es Vedrà. Located in the south west of Ibiza, this islet is a large magnetic rock, which is the subject of many mysterious legends and folklore. Many come here to feel inspired and admire its dramatic beauty. Today it is one of the island's most treasured places to visit.

Departing at 10:00 h. from San Antonio, the boat stops at several points along the coast, including Cala Tarida and Cala Vadella before heading on to Es Vedrà and the breathtaking Atlantis from where the rocks for Ibiza's old town came from. Depending on the wind conditions you will have to time to snorkel and enjoy a picnic and drink, all included in the price. You can bathe in the waters close to the spectacular site of Atlantis or just by Cala d'Hort until returning after lunch at around 14:30 h.

The boats used on the excursions are traditional Ibiza boats made by local craftsmen. Aquabus aims to conserve these boats and every year invests in restoring and maintaining them so you can enjoy an original Ibiza boating experience.

Customer reviews for Aquabus | Sunday boat trip to Es Vedra

4 reviews. Average customer rating: 7/10

The wife was obsessed with the history surrounding Es Vedra, so we booked this trip well in advance of our trip. The departure was at 9am and we returned at about 2pm. As advertised, we did a pass of the mysterious rock by boat and were able to get some nice pictures and video. There were food and drinks served (paella was surprisingly decent), and the tour operators were very informative and helpful. Combined, we spent about an hour of 'face-time' with Es Vedra out of the full 5 hour excursion. Leaving from San Antonio, we spent a lot of time in-transit picking up passengers at other stops along the way. Most of our time near the place was spent anchored by Cala d Hort for a short 30min swim before heading back. In short, we got the same close-up time with the islet as we received doing our pass-by on our Aquabus daytrip to Formentera/ Espalmador (from San Antonio), or obviously more with a full day visit to Cala d Hort.

My and my friend stayed in Ibiza for a week and the aqua bus to Es vedra was amazing the tour guides were lovely people really made the day special I'm not one for being a tourist but I really did enjoy the boat journey, we enjoyed it so much that we booked benirras beach with the aqua bus and came back later that day and also the following Wednesday we went to the hippy market with them, over all of you want good banter friendly atmosphere and some tunes I would highly recommend to take the aqua bus!! Thank you for making my Ibiza spiritual journey one to remember
