Detailed description

Snorkelling in Formentera - the little paradise at Ibiza

Formentera has something that others do not have in such abundance: Neptunas. This beautiful underwater plant provides the paradise-blue water around the small island, plenty of oxygen, an enviable biodiversity and magnificent underwater television. It's no coincidence that snorkelling is one of the most popular water sports activities in Formentera. There is a lot to discover and the feeling of swimming in this sea blue is simply fantastic. You will get to know some of the best spots on the 3.5-hour tour starting in La Savina. The adventure begins with a short hike through the shallow sea to the boat. There is a short briefing on board and then it's off to snorkel on Formentera!

The first stop is the island of Espalmador, which is only a few swimming trains away from Formentera. There you will have one hour's stay to explore the little paradise. From the neighbouring island we continue to the marinepark in the Cala del Moro. A refuge in Caribbean look with water in the most beautiful colours and lots of fish to watch. There are fins, diving goggles and snorkels on board, so you can get to the bottom of this fascinating world directly from the boat. For non-swimmers there are vests on board.

Your travel boat has a refrigerator, shower and a sunblind and yet so little draught that you can travel very close to the coastline and reach some quiet bays that can only be reached from the water. The boat has a maximum capacity of 12 persons. It will be an almost familiar Formentera excursion. 

Another highlight of this Formentera boat tour is the cave swimming in the mysterious bays hidden behind the rocks. There the water has different colours and you will certainly develop a spirit of discovery when you swim and snorkel. Alternatively, you can explore the meadows of Neptunga under an imposing cliff of the cliffs. The last stop of this expedition is the bay of Cala Saona, for many the most beautiful Formentera bay of all. This is mainly due to the interplay of red stone and blue sea colours and this almost golden light.


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

Perfect offer.

Old hands and newbies don't go wrong booking this tour. Everything went perfectly: the hotel pick-up was well organized. The equipment provided was clean and well maintained. My unreserved recommendation.

Perfektes Angebot.

Alte Hasen und Neulinge machen nichts falsch, wenn sie diese Tour buchen. Es klappte alles hervorragend: Die Hotelabholung war bestens organisiert. Die bereitgestellte Ausrüstung war sauber und gut gepflegt. Meine uneingeschränkte Empfehlung.

I was a bit queasy at first...

I've never had diving goggles on my face and I only knew the underwater world from television. But the friendly team took away my concerns and so it became an interesting day under water for me!

Mir war erst etwas mulmig…

Ich hatte noch nie eine Taucherbrille im Gesicht und die Unterwasserwelt kannte ich bisher nur aus dem Fernsehen. Doch das freundliche Team nahm mir meine Bedenken und so wurde es für mich ein interessanter Tag unter Wasser!

My first snorkeling trip

It was awesome! I had not imagined the sea world off Formentera to be so colorful and full of surprises. I enjoyed every minute of the four hours and highly recommend this offer.

Mein erster Schnorchelausflug

Es war eine Wucht! So bunt und voller Überraschung hatte ich mir die Meereswelt vor Formentera nicht vorgestellt. Ich habe die vier Stunden in jeder Minute genossen und empfehle dieses Angebot unbedingt.

My girlfriend and her daughter loved it.

I love snorkeling and have seen quite a few spots. This time I was with my friend and her 13 year old daughter who went snorkeling for the first time. We all enjoyed it VERY GOOD.

Mein Freundin und ihre Tochter waren begeistert.

Ich liebe Schnorcheln und habe schon einige Spots gesehen. Diesmal war meine Freundin und ihre 13-jährige Tochter dabei, die zum ersten Mal Schnorcheln gingen. Uns allen hat es SEHR GUT gefallen.

Snorkeling trip that I can recommend

Unfortunately, there are also a lot of junk offers for German tourists in the Spanish tourist strongholds. This snorkeling trip is definitely not one of them. I had a lot of fun and am still learning a lot about snorkeling.

Schnorchel-Trip, den ich weiterempfehlen kann

Leider gibt es in den spanischen Touristenhochburgen auch eine Menge Schrottangebote für die deutsche Touris. Dieser Schnorchel-Trip gehört definitiv nicht dazu. Ich hatte eine Menge Spaß und lerne noch einiges übers Schnocheln.
