Mallorca, the largest island in the Balearic Islands, offers us an excellent opportunity to share a week sailing on a fantastic sailboat. An unforgettable life experience in a magical environment.

Our tour will focus on the Tramuntana coast, a quiet environment away from the hustle and bustle, full of peace and calm, which offers us wonderful beaches, green landscapes and fishing villages that preserve the traditional Mallorcan spirit.

Our adventure begins in the port of Barcelona from where we will depart in the early afternoon. During these first hours we will meet and talk about the basic rules of coexistence on the boat. The night journey will allow us to contemplate the stars and get used to the rhythm of the sailboat. At dawn we will see the coast and reach the port of Soller where we will make our first stop and take the opportunity to refresh ourselves. Back to the ship our navigation along the Mallorcan coast will begin. On the last day, after an exciting experience, we will return to the port of Barcelona.

"Mallorca has it all" say the locals. Indeed, on the largest island of the Balearic Islands, its spectacular mountains join a crystalline sea to offer us fabulous natural landscapes and paradisiacal corners. We are going to discover the closest area to the Peninsula: the Serra de Tramuntana and the North Coast of the island.

We set sail from CN Garraf bound for Sóller. Sóller is the closest point in Mallorca to our peninsula coast; It is also a beautiful natural harbor on the west coast of Mallorca, the only one available along this steep wall of the island. Surely we will be interested in disembarking to walk and enjoy this magnificent enclave at the foot of the highest mountains in Mallorca, in the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana.

We set sail for Sa Calobra. We will enjoy the journey, admiring the impressive cliffs of the mountains and discover a good number of caves at water level. We will be able to stop for a while at the cove of Sa Costera or at Cala Tuent, one of the few coves that this coast of the island offers us. We continue our journey to find a good place in Sa Calobra. The perspective from the sea of this torrent closed by rocky walls of up to 200 m is overwhelming. Depending on the weather and the time we will anchor here for the night.

After a morning bath and a rich breakfast, we set sail towards the NE end of Mallorca, Cabo Formentor, with its imposing lighthouse more than 200 m above sea level. Around Formentor, we have several coves to anchor and enjoy clean waters, both before (Castell, Estremé, San Vicente, Figuera) and afterwards (Engossauba, Murta, Formentor); we stop at some of them to eat, rest and continue enjoying the sea and a privileged environment. Depending on the desire we have, the weather and availability, we will spend the night anchored in one of them.

After having rested well and enjoyed a morning dip and a good breakfast, we set sail for Pollensa. Impressive bay of more than 7 miles in length surrounded by forests and with great nautical activity. There is never a lack of wind in this place, so we will sail it pending the boats, of all kinds that we will cross (perhaps even a hydroplane ...). At its bottom we will find the port where we will moor to walk and dine and spend the night; we also need to stretch our legs. In addition, we must feed ourselves and load water and fuel.

After a peaceful night, we have breakfast and set sail towards the neighboring bay of Alcudia. The flat and sandy landscape of the bay invites to a day of relaxed sailing. If time permits we can stop at any point to bathe, eat and relax. If more convenient, there are several nice places to drop anchor, for example next to Porros islet, Cala Na Clara or Es Caló. The latter is ideal, according to the meteorology, to spend the night at the foot of its reddish walls where the green pine forests contrast and on crystal clear waters, far from any sign of civilization.

We set sail after breakfast and the usual dip towards Cala Ratjada. The area where we are is the one facing Menorca (if there is good visibility we could see it from here) between Cabo Ferrutx and Cabo des Freu; It offers us a lot of possibilities to enjoy this beautiful coast where the green pine trees contrast with the turquoise waters, eg in Cala Mesquida, a mandatory visit before turning Cabo Pera to enter the port of Cala Ratjada. We moored in this beautiful fishing port to rest well and refresh ourselves before the journey back to the Peninsula.

After resting deeply, we get up to stretch our legs again, make the necessary purchases and, without delay, head home. 110 miles to Garraf await us, with a navigation that we will try to sail if the wind is favorable. If we are lucky we will see dolphins on our journey and, without a doubt, we will enjoy remembering everything lived and seen. Other corners of Mallorca await us for the next opportunity. Perhaps other Balearic islands, similar but different ... Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera ...

    Good Morning,
    I am not usually very given to give my opinion on the internet except on rare occasions and this is one of them.
    The first thing to say is that when I booked the trip for my son and for me, fortunately there were no such negative comments.
    And I say fortunately because having read those comments I would not have hired and I would have missed a week of a great vacation.
    I read the comments two days before leaving and it scared me a lot, but since I was already paid I decided to go.
    It has been a great experience with good travel companions and wonderful hosts.
    We have been able to sail, seen dolphins, plankton at night, the stars as I have never seen them before, incredible coves that enjoy a totally different perspective, snorkeling wherever we docked, we have learned a lot about navigation and boats in summary good experiences.
    I have missed sailing more because it is very pleasant, but the wind is what touches you.
    Regarding the organizers, Fernando is a bag of knowledge always ready to explain what you ask him, in addition to being very cautious.
    Montse is a charming person always attentive to the comforts of others.
    With Marc, the contact has been limited to the exchange of whatsaps and some phone calls, all correct but since I do not know him personally, I can not comment more.
    I suppose that on an adventure trip like this you have to be lucky and we have had it, the people who have made such negative comments did not have it and their perspective is totally different.
    Without any doubt I recommend it and of course I will repeat.

    Let's embark to spend a few days in Menorca since it was something we wanted to do for a long time. Due to a storm we were forced to head to Mallorca and from the moment we got there everything got worse, bad organization, and the only concern was the repair of the boat, having us sail by motor with the sailboat along the south coast of Mallorca until have your sails repaired. Me and my partner returned by ferry tired of the attitude of the organizer. The owner / skipper is a good navigator and has a lot of knowledge but his priority was his boat, of course. The general feeling I have is that I have been scammed. I am very clear that navigation in this type of voyage is totally collaborative, but we are not a group of friends who have rented a sailboat, supposedly we have hired an experience and the organization leaves much to be desired. Starting with the weather forecast.

    I would never repeat an experience with Marc. It is not suitable for experiences at sea. Little nautical or meteorological knowledge, lack of empathy with clients, selfish in their decisions and a poorly educated and immature person.

    There was a bad weather forecast and even so he decided to go on a journey, evidently gusts of more than 40knt of wind broke our sails and put the entire passage in vital danger. But not only that, but he was indisposed in his cabin for abusing alcohol consumption a few hours before. A colleague and I were able to weather the storm with the skipper and arrive at another port to repair the ship to continue. Through personal contacts they got them some second-hand candles that they rejected wanting to fix their own. That hampered the organization as he made us sail around Palma by motor until three days later they delivered their repaired ones. With the discomfort of motor sailing on a sailboat.
    With that the day of return was made because they were not in a hurry to change them either. Half of the passage I left the ship, my companion left by plane and a couple of friends by boat. Then Marc along with his "little friend" continued already unconcerned about trying to treat the one that was left (me) and as if it did not exist they continued their journey like lovebirds locked in their cabin, being the skipper and I who took the sailboat back to the port of the Garraf, to end the trip for once and lose sight of Marc.
    I would never repeat and I do not advise anyone to put their vacations and leisure time in their hands. NO SERVICE for host and humility to recognize their mistakes and their mismanagement is ZERO.

    I hired a week's vacation in natural surroundings and coves of Menorca to snorkel and we ended up in Mallorca (Palma) to repair the boat and help with repair tasks, anchoring in spaces of little or no tourist interest. The only day that was good despite the hours by motor to arrive, was the day we were in Cabrera, an hour and a half disembarked and leaving for Palma again to change sails. Obviously it was necessary to help. Without my friends I returned reluctantly just to not abandon our things on the ship. Those who left left without their luggage due to the volume of things we were carrying.

    A disappointment and a great sadness since I have few vacations a year and this character made them a nightmare.
