Boat & Sailing Trips
Why not Discover Menorca's spectacular northern coastline from the sea this summer..? Classic Cruises Menorca offers a wonderful boating experience around the rugged and mystical northern coast of Menorca with a difference, which is the reason it has been voted most popular Menorcan boat excursion by leading Tour Operators Thomson, First Choice and Thomas Cook. And it’s easy to understand why…it’s all about Fun and Relaxation. Not only will you see vivid scenery, virgin beaches and hidden coves that are hard to beat with the opportunity to kayak and snorkel or simply swim and sunbathe, but also you will be sailing on MFV Seafield, a traditional fishing vessel that has been lovingly refurbished and fitted out especially for pleasure cruises. Please note, passengers must be 18 years old or over.
Crystal clear waters, virgin beaches, hidden caves, golden sand, paella and a cool drink in relaxing surroundings with friends. If that’s your idea of a perfect day on holiday, then look no further than a boat trip with Menorca Blava.
Sail away with us
Menorca Blava offers memorable cruises around the southern isolated beaches of Menorca which are difficult or impossible to get to by land, some with fine white sand, others hiding secret caves unknown to most people.
Daily boat trips leave the port of Ciutadella at 10.00 hours and sail around the coast to the stunning beach of Son Saura where you disembark.
For those of you who don’t know, a ‘Llaut’ is a traditional Menorcan fishing boat used for centuries by generations of fishermen and built to go out in all weathers, all year round. You have no doubt seen Llauts in harbours around the island or peacefully moored off one of the picturesque coves, but why not experience the unforgettable pleasure of chartering one for yourself, whether for a day or perhaps a week…?
Meet Eloise, a wonderful example of a lady of a certain age who has lovingly been given a face lift and make over by proud owners, Chris and Jan Gilbert. Eloise is a Menorquin 150 fly bridge, her design based on the historic Llaut which makes her ideal for quietly cruising at low speed while ensuring she is more than capable of withstanding anything the Mediterranean can throw at her.
There are many organised boat trips to enjoy which set off from harbours and waterside locations around the island. These provide an excellent opportunity to see the island from the sea and discover some of the beautiful deserted beaches which cannot be accessed by land.
The Yellow Catamarans Glass Bottom Boats run excursions several times a day around Mahon harbour from May to October. These last about an hour and provide a historical commentary (in several languages) about the port and wonderful underwater views.
