Whatever floats your boat! The best private charter experiences on Ibiza

From luxury yachts to solar-powered catamarans, there is a boat for every occasion and budget!

Flying across the Balearic Sea, with the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair, exploring Ibiza and Formentera by boat is a true bucket list experience.

Discover hidden beaches and mysterious caves along the rugged coastline, go snorkelling in the incredible crystal waters, enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled Jet Ski ride or simply lay back and relax… the choice is yours!

When hunger strikes, why not dine with your toes in the sand at one of Ibiza and Formentera's famous seaside restaurants – or bring your own picnic to enjoy in a secluded spot.

Ibiza Spotlight works closely with established local businesses that we know operate their own vessels and offer a very trustworthy service. So, whatever style of charter you prefer, we have listed some of the best boat companies on Ibiza to help you make your dreams of a spectacular aquatic adventure come true!

Smart Charter Ibiza

With a fleet of 55 speedboats and yachts, the Balearic Island’s largest charter company has a vessel for every occasion and group size. But what really makes Smart Charter Ibiza stand out is the dynamic and passionate team of island residents who love to share their favourite spots and insider recommendations with you!

From a speedy, sporty little number to a luxurious floating palace you could spend the night on, you are spoilt for choice. Once you have found your perfect boat, you have the option to add a variety of catering options, watersports equipment like Seabobs and futuristic foils, hire your own, personal DJ or bartender for the day… and off you go to explore paradise

New for 2021, Smart Charter Ibiza is introducing a variety of new charter packages. For example, the Brunch ‘n’ Boat package will include a hearty meal with cocktails at harbour hotspot MIRA Ibiza before heading to Formentera for the day!

La Bella Verde

Dubbed the ‘pioneers of the green boating movement’, the eco-conscious La Bella Verde team has developed the world’s first solar-powered catamaran. This means that you can cruise through the beautiful clear waters of the Balearic Islands without leaving behind a trace!

Choose from 7-hour day trips sailing from Santa Eulalia to private island Tagomago, San Antonio to the mysterious rock island Es Vedrá, or the classic Ibiza to Formentera route. La Bella Verde also offer a 3-hour sunset trip along the west coast of the island AND the oportunity to accommodate a group of up to 28 people in a joint flotilla.

Each catamaran comes with a sun canopy, a superb sound system and snorkelling equipment, with the option to add on a picnic, full fridge of drinks, or other extras such as eco-friendly sun cream.

Motonáutica Ibiza

As well as boasting a huge variety of boats including motor, rigid, RIBs and sailboats, Motonáutica Ibiza gives you the opportunity to charter a boat with or without a skipper. So whether you are planning a romantic day out for you and your other half, or a fun trip roaming around the island with your pals, you can have a go at playing captain even if you are a first-time boater and without a boating license on their Capelli Tempest ribs

The majority of the impeccably maintained fleet is located in Ibiza Town, so you can enjoy beautiful views on UNESCO World Heritage castle Dalt Vila as you float out of the harbour. The ribs available to self-sail are moored in the lively San Antonio harbour, perfect for exploring Ibiza's famous sunset coast!


The SeaDays team prides itself on their incredibly dedicated, bespoke service, which ensures that no two charter experiences are ever the same. Founded by a team of island residents with more than 10 years of experience in chartering boats, they pay the utmost attention to their clients’ wishes and even the smallest of details.

Each boat is immaculately presented and the crew’s mission is to create unforgettable experiences and lifelong memories on the beautiful Balearic Sea. Some of their most popular routes include trips to Las Salinas beach, the rocky island of Es Vedrá, the bays of Cala Jondal, Cala Conta and Cala d’Hort and, of course, Formentera to name just a few!
