We initially spoke to 'Joan' who offered us a special price of 120euros for 4 hours hired assured us we would be able to take ourselves out to the Blue Cave to snorkel, had a think over lunch and went back to book. A very nice English man helped us to organise our trip for the following day, explained we can't get to the blue cave as its beyond the no licence zone, quoted the standard price of 120 Euros (so much for Joan and her special deal) but offered us a good deal for an 8 hour hire of the 'Silver' Boat, it was the boat that made us book with them as it had a lovely sunbathing area at the front and didn't need a licence, we paid our deposit to come and take the boat out the next day. On our return the Spanish man refused to honour the offer we had been given the day before even though he was there and confirmed it. After a long and slightly surly (on his part) conversation he offered a 10 euro reduction on the full price but wouldn't guarantee that we could have the boat for the 8 hours. We decided to stick to the 4 hours hire and headed off to the boat. The staff member who was there to instruct us could barely speak english and didn't seem very sure of himself when navigating the boat to the jetty where he left us to it. After that bad start we had an amazing time exploring the bay out as far as Formentor, we dropped anchor in Calo Des Moro bay behind the Fortreza and had the place pretty much to ourselves to swim and snorkel, heaven!
There are a lot of boat hire places all together by the marina touting for business, we would certainly recommend taking a boat out but be aware that the deal they offer may not be what you get (Also as an extra when you get back you have to pay for fuel, ours was 20 Euros on top of the 120 hire cost.)
