Subject to weather there are half day ( Don Joan to north east and south east coasts) and harbour trips (Yellow Catamarans & Don Joan) taking in the historical and geographical sites of Mahon harbour. Due to the water clarity the glass bottom boats really can help you see a lot under and above the water. Trips circa 1 hour around the harbour ( Mon - Sat ) and half day trips-see below.
Don Joan - a large modern glass bottom catamaran with 3 decks. Level 1 is submarine level in the hulls with glass panels for underwater viewing. Level 2 is the main deck with a bar selling drinks and snacks. Level 3 is the sun deck.
Half day trips along the north eastern coast of Menorca departing from Mahon are also available on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9.45am and 2.30pm. Trips will go northwards to Es Grau and Isla d´en Colon ( excellent scenery) or Southwards to Binisafuller . There will be swimming stops and time to lay on a beach.
Yellow Catamarans ( 2 Boats ) - offer comentated trips around the harbour taking in the significant sights. Plus visits to Isla del Rey

A 'Rib' is a lightweight open (with sunshade) rigid hulled vessel with a big outboard engine and basic fittings ie 'a seat of your pants water roadster' built for fun speed. An economic and exciting way to see the coast and because they are smaller you can get in close to sea caves and beaches.

Sailing excursions on mono hulled or catamarans , wind in the hair and sun on your face.
An increasingly popular activity and a great way to see the beautiful coastline up close is from a sea kayak. Sea Kayaks can be hired for your own trip or you can be part of a small guided tour starting at various points along the coast. Three seater kayaks are available so families can stay together. Unlike boats kayaks can get really close up to the coast line, get to unusual and interesting places including exploring sea caves and remote beaches.
Fornells bays is ideal. It's part of a Marine reserve with shallow waters so there is abundant sea life that can be seen through crystal clear waters. You can explore the bays and visit the bay's S'Aranalet beach only accessible from the water.
From Es Grau. A great place from the beach, where in shallow waters you can explore the headland and it's little hidden sandy beaches.
From Punta Prima to explore the souther eastern coastline.
From Cala en Porter to explore the beautiful bay and caves just outside the bay entrance.
Many beach resorts offer a basic kayak hire service from the beach ( approx. 12 Eur for 1 hour ). If you are looking for something a little more adventurous then take a course, guided tour as a private group or join a group on a regular tour. Or the services of a professional guide.
