A great day! We would book this relaxing excursion again! Wonderful service!
Many thanks to Toni at staff at No Frills Excursions who were able to get me a spot after I couldn't go first time around due to illness, and were terrific with directions for meeting the boat. A really wonderful way of seeing Palma from the water. The captain and crew were lovely and helpful, everyone on board seemed to enjoy themselves. A relaxing, and fun way to spend the day!
The boat trip was a lot of fun. We enjoyed getting the chance to jump off the boat and swim as well as have lunch aboard the boat. The only issue we had with this trip is that we didn't do any snorkeling at all. Overall we had fun though.
We had a very nice day on the catamaran. They stopped a couple of times to let us swim and lunch was very nice along with the drinks. Crew was very nice as was the boat. Would definitely do this again.
The trip was marketed differently. We didn't stop at any beaches but only once in deep waters. I was expecting to see at least one beach... And the picture of the boat does not look like 50 people can get on board, which was the case.
The crew was great. The places we stopped to swim were beautiful. We did the southern route. Beware though, this was a booze cruise. There was a huge group from Austraila on the cruise. Unlimited sangria for all. Things got a bit crazy. It wasn't appropriate for my children.
After purchasing this trip, we received the information that we have to contact the supplier by ourself to arrange the hotel pick up. After contacting them, we received an email telling us that they do not offer the cruise on Mondays but that he would arrange a replacement trip for us (we could not go on another day). He kept his words and got us into another catamaran. He even called my hotel to make sure we would received the information as soon as we would check-in. However, the main reason why we purchased this cruise was because we were going to visit 6 beaches. The cruise that we end up we end up with was for only 1 beach which we stayed 2 hours at. Food was great though. We were a bit disappointed about that and are still wondering why the cruise was offered online for Monday if the supplier does not run on this day... I would not book again on this website but you would definitely go back on a Catamaran tour in Palma!
Pros: They serve you a very nice meal of the catamaran and on the way back they go slowly to several nice areas around Palma so you can see the building and take pics from the boat.
Cons: We did this in May and the fast ride with lots of wind was chilly and the water was ice cold. They pulled into a beach area but to get to the beach you had to swim so we were trapped on the boat and were soo cold that the whole thing just sucked. If you do this do the tour in July or Aug and only if the weather is good. The crew were sweet but did not talk to any passengers nor did they actually explain what the sites we were seeing were. So as far as a tour...this did not fit the bill.
This tour has just lunch during 2 hr free time at one place and nothing else.
Pick up /off service wasn't provided with the reason that we stayed in the center of the city.
They didn't even mention about snorkeling and also didn't include snorkeling equipment.
You have to pay for the beverage except for the lunch time.
For the staffs, it seems like it was the time for selling the beverages becuase people has nothing to do on the deck.
Also staffs are not helpful, not supportive, and not kind.
The cost is very expensive when considering its services and conditions.
Pure money making trip!!! 85 from 100 possible people cramed onto a cat, Softdrinks only free during meal, snorkeling equipment a joke - only goggles and snorkel, no fins...trip took about 5 hours, from which 2 hours where spent at one spot with no real snorkeling area...rip off!!!! Trip started on hour later....
I took the east coast trip. I thought it wasn't worth $100. It is NOT a snorkeling trip. They don't even have fins for you. Basically it's a booze cruise. I would not recommend this trip. If you are looking for a booze cruise there are trips that are specifically for that. This is not for snorkeling
