Overview

Enjoy a delightful trip on board the Don Joan around the Port of Mahon. The tour lasts 1 hour and we offer an English commentary to get to know the history, characteristics and peculiarities of this special harbour. Throughout the tour you can get the best views both from the top deck and from the shelter of the main deck. On the Don Joan you are on board the largest, most modern and comfortable catamaran in Menorca. When we reach the mouth of the harbour for underwater viewing we open the four chambers so you can go down and watch the fish and sea life while sitting on benches. Enjoy the four largest underwater viewing chambers in Menorca, with 24 glass windows for the best panoramic viewing of the seabed. Utmost comfort and safety for the whole family guaranteed.

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.

Spend an hour on this lovely boat going around the harbour of Mahon. Great commentary and the harbour is steeped with history and historic buildings. Toilets, a bar and an under deck viewing gallery all add to the experience. Polite helpful staff worth doing.
