Hello DevonMothball, Thank you for your commentary. According to the comments you can see in other reviews, our 3 crew members (captain, sailor and mecanic) are considered friendly and polite. Their main task is to drive the boat safely, to avoid any kind of danger to our passengers, to answer their questions if required and to specially take care that... More

Hello sebastian g, We're glad to read you spent a nice time on board. And as you say in your commentary, even if it's a bit crowded, the captain will wait time enough so everybody has an opportunity to have a look and enjoy the sealife. Hope to see you again on board! Yellow Catamarans. More

We visited Mahon and booked the boat trip whilst we were there. I was prompted by the reviews on Tripadvisor. We are a family of five. Cost was reasonable, you pay and book onto the first available trip at the booking office adjacent to where the boat docks, though you may be able to book through other agents. I asked... More

Mahon Harbour is really long with various points of interest. The cat trip was informative and easy boating. We didn't have sunny weather which was a shame, but it was still enjoyable, though a little cool outside. Plenty of easy viewing from downstairs inside so that was excellent. The views through the glass bottom were not very interesting - fairly... More

Would really recommend the Yellow Catamaran experience if you are visiting, commentary is available in multiple languages. There are a few very interesting historical sights to see along the ride and you also stop for a while and can enter the glass bottom.

Had a relaxing hour spent on one of the boats, taking in the sites of the picturesque coast line.
