Each trip lasts four hours, crewed by skipper Chris and tour guide / host John, and is limited to 12 adults to give a truly exclusive and personal service. The boat usually travels eastwards along the north coast taking in some of Menorca’s most beautiful coastline, including the marine and UNESCO biosphere reserves. On route, you will be treated to a maritime history by John on how the island has changed and developed over the years, including its fascinating geology. The boat then anchors for two hours in one of the secluded bays where you will be able to enjoy a superb Mediterranean buffet / BBQ with plenty of variety to suit all tastes, including delicious barbecued chicken and Spanish tapas with vegetarian options.
There will be plenty of opportunity to swim to a deserted beach, snorkel or kayak around tiny inlets or simply chill out and in the sun and take in the views. In high season you should expect warm, calm conditions, so remember to bring along plenty of sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat etc. There is also a pay bar onboard serving cold drinks, beers, sangria, wines and spirits.

MFV Seafield: First registered in 1946 in Banff, Scotland as a Motor Fishing Vessel (MFV), Seafield earned her living the hard way, in the North Sea, which as we all know can be a ‘cruel mistress’! Having survived these rigours for many years, she now finds herself in the gentle waters of the Med. She underwent a major refit recently, and has been constantly updated during the winter months ever since. ?Now registered in Spain as a pleasure cruise boat for 12 passengers, she still retains her original British registered number of BF143 and still flies the British ‘Red Duster’, although she would no longer be allowed to fish commercially. Since her change of lifestyle, she now has a crew of two, skipper Chris and your host John.
