About Boat trips in Ibiza
With so many sights to see around Ibiza's coastline, there is no better way to see them than from a boat. If you don't fancy chartering your own boat, you can take a trip with one of the many boat companies based in most of Ibiza's main resorts.
You will find there is a wide choice of small boats, large boats and catamarans (which is reflected in the price you will pay) and some have glass-bottoms so you can admire the fish and sea vegetation below.
You can take a day trip which usually encompasses lunch and a stop-off at one of the remote island beaches, and try some snorkelling if you fancy. Or take a sunset cruise in the evening and enjoy the views with a glass of bubbly. If you are looking for something a little more edgy, you could consider a ride on a speed boat to get the heart pumping!
Note that most of the boat trips around Ibiza are seasonal, starting from April or May, and finishing in October.

The cruising around Ibiza close to the coastline, means keeping a good eye on the weather and ask at your boat rental company for advice if in doubt.
Also always bring a waterproof jacket in case the weather turns or a wind comes up- it can get cool on the water at night.
The water can get very busy along the coast of Ibiza in summertime- be alert at all times.
If you have any doubts about your sailing capabilities whatsoever and no-one on your boat is a skilled sailor, then just fork out the money and hire a skipper. You’ll enjoy yourself more without the stress of wondering who has right of way when a big yacht comes bearing down on you!
Sailing with Children
Make sure your children wear a lifejacket AT ALL TIMES, never let them run around the boat or be unattended on deck, and make sure they don’t swim alone. Don’t take really long trips between ports, rather stop off along the way for treasure hunts and beach picnics to keep them occupied.
