One hours trip by boat around Mahón harbour. Commentary in 5 languages and very good. You see everything. Boat has windows below to see the fish. Worth 10 Euro. Parking along the front costs 3 Euro for 2 hours.

You can’t argue at 12 euros for one hour, clean boat, good commentary, hard to see fish sometimes, but lovely ‘cruise’ anyhow

If you are in Mahon then you have to take in the boat trip around the harbour. It lasts about 1hr/1-1/2 hours. Well worth it. Very interesting.

Much of what Mahon is about relates to the natural harbour, and so an hour with commentary explains in an interesting and informative way all the key points. The boat is advertised as glass bottomed, we've done glass bottomed boat trips before, some are awesome...More

Hi Alistair, We appreciate your comment. The main purpose of the boat trip is to discover the second largest natural harbour in the world, the port of Mahon - the glass bottom is and add-on for everyone to enjoy during trip. Some days we see...More

So many things to see in this fantastic natural harbour full of history. Nice clean comfortable boat, commentary was good (although a little hard to hear at times) and reasonably priced refreshments. Was disappointed with not being able to see the fish due to the...More

Hi, As Gary F says, we cannot pick you up at Calan Bosch harbour. The Don Joan only sails around the port of Mahon so boarding is only from the harbour itself. Sorry for that, but we do look forward to having you on... More
