Our friends invited us again this year for a one-week yachting holiday on the Habana IV. Last year we were already able to experience Vicki's expert navigation. This year, too, we can only express our enthusiasm about how safely and confidently she sailed us through the Mediterranean. We were able to rely on her 100 per cent at all times and our trust was not disappointed this year either. The equipment of the Habana IV is beyond question anyway. The catering by Ile, who accompanied us this year, was first class, which unfortunately had an effect on the scales. 🙂 From breakfast, to drinks, to lunch, everything was great! The barbeque "on the high seas" was also great. We will keep the boat and its crew (our girls) in the very best memory and will recommend you at any time without a doubt.
From Andrea and Reiner on 26.09.2023
We had the most fantastic time. Sea Shell is a really great boat and the layout is perfect!! Pol is such a great skipper – professional, friendly, super helpful and overall, a great guy. Thanks once again for arranging our charter – excellent!!
From Adrian on 31.08.2023
Everything was really perfectly organised and we enjoyed it very much. The catering was very tasty and Jana and Dani are a great skipper team.
From Michael on 31.08.2023
We had the best day thank you! Jose was great, very accommodating and it was definitely the best day of the holiday. Thanks very much for your help in getting it organised!
From Lara on 30.08.2023
Fjord 48 Open „Sugar“
We had a lovely day. The boat was great, the toys that came with it were great, the captain was great and the sea was perfect. We will definitely be rebooking next year.
From Mark on 24.08.2023
It was a great day! Florian welcomed us very nicely on the boat and after a short introduction, we set off straight away. We went to a beautiful bay and spent the day there. With the donut we went out on the water for a few laps, rarely so much laughter as there. Really a perfect day, with very nice and professional service. Next time we will surely come back to your charter service. Thanks again for the great organisation and see you next time.
From Franziska on 20.08.2023
We were very fortunate to have Pol as our captain on Azimut 53. We were impressed by his professionalism, attention to safety to us and other boats, his kindness, always looking up if we needed anything. He showed also handyman skills when attending the boat… A seasoned veteran already. We are highly recommending Pol to other cruising people and would be happy to provide personal recommandation.
From Christian on 19.08.2023
We had a great time indeed. The boat left nothing to be desired. It was practically new and constantly maintained by Pol. In general, Pol was a super skipper. Very experienced and skilled and at the same time very committed to taking us to the best places and making our stay on board as pleasant as possible. He was absolutely successful. We charter regularly and therefore have very good opportunities to compare. The trip with Pol on Sea Shell was a 10 out of 10 and we are already thinking of repeating it in the same constellation.
From Iris on 06.08.2023
Once again we had a perfect day. Thank you very much for that!!!! The captain was very nice and courteous. His way of dealing with people could not be better. He steered the ship very pleasantly and you could also see that he was very concerned about everyone's safety. Tony, the stewardess, also did her best to make the day very pleasant. She was everywhere but invisible. Really perfect. Tony and the Captain were a good team on the boat. We felt very comfortable and at ease in their hands. I would like to say a big thank you to them and to you for a wonderful day!
From Heinrich on 03.08.2023
We have had a wonderful time on board of Sea Shell. Capitan Pol is exceptional, we were feeling marvelously hosted by him, very safe and he always tried to meet our expectations. Apart great yachting skills, he’s very friendly and kind person. It wasn’t too long for kids at all, while Capitan learned them to ride wake board and organized other activities with the tender:) We had a outstanding trip and we really recommend Capitan Pol as a Capitan and companion on the Yacht. Thank You for organizing the whole trip. It was a great pleasure to work with You and we definitely stay in contact for the future! Kind Regards B
From B. on 25.07.2023
Pura Vida is a fantastic boat in a very good shape. We were greeted by the lovely crew of Captain Jordi and deckhand Will and were looked after splendidly. Watersports top notch and also the culinary aspect of the optional dining on board exceeded our expectations - very much recommended.
From on 23.07.2023
We really enjoyed the day on the boat. The motor yacht was perfect for us, especially the fold-out platforms were brilliant.
From Sibill on 22.07.2023
We had a fantastic time on Extasea. Jose was brilliant at getting us the best spots in all the coves and was great with the kids. We can’t wait to do it again! Thanks for organising it for us at such short notice.
From James on 18.07.2023
Great day, captain and stewardess fantastic. Highly recommend.
From on 15.07.2023
We were very pleased and it was a perfect sea day all round! The ship is very well maintained and pleasant and the size was ideal for us! Dany and his little Jana were lovely and super pleasant, anytime again! A thousand thanks until next time!
From Carin on 14.07.2023
Everything went really smoothly. The itinerary worked perfectly. We had plenty of time to swim, sunbathe and play with the toys. The restaurant for lunch was exactly the sort of thing we were looking for. Miguel was amazing. Very helpful, very friendly. And the boat also worked really well. Thanks for all your help in advance and on the day. It was all seamless.
From Marcus on 13.07.2023
We had an amazing time. The boat was great, our captain was wonderful and you have been wonderful to work with. When I return to Mallorca, I will certainly reach out to you in order to book another boat day.
From Steve on 11.07.2023
We had a fantastic time on the charter yesterday, thank you. Toni was friendly and professional, and Gin Tonic was the perfect fit for us. Wish we were here longer to do more charters!
From Julie on 05.07.2023
Fjord 36 Open “Titán”

From Marie-France on 01.07.2023
We thank you very much for this all around successful day and a very friendly skipper Miguel. He has rounded off the day for us. Also the contact with you was very friendly and courteous. Thank you very much for that. We are already looking forward to experiencing such a beautiful day again during our next stay.

The day was absolute perfection - our trip highlight for sure. You and your team were so fantastic and coordinated everything beautifully and Fabian was the best. Thank you!

The day on the yacht was just perfect. We had a wonderful day and everything went smoothly. A big thanks to you, the communication in advance was at all times just great and you have taken care of everything. Also Miguel our skipper was super nice and has fulfilled all wishes. If we are on Mallorca again we will definitely rent a boat through you again.
From Tom on 16.06.2023
Bavaria R55 Fly “Valluga”
Everything worked out wonderfully. We had a great day. Many thanks again to Martin and Cathy. We will certainly recommend Valluga and use it again in the future.
From Dietmar M. on 04.06.2023
Our charter was great. The boat was beautiful and the crew extremely friendly and helpful. We felt comfortable all around on board and spent a great and unforgettable day. The weather unfortunately did not cooperate 100%, but the captain closely followed the weather situation and we eventually "followed the sun". The catering was already on board when we arrived at the boat and tasted excellent. All in all a very successful day. I would also like to thank you very much for your attentive and friendly care beforehand! Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
From Margot B. on 03.06.2023
We had a very nice day on the water. The crew was very courteous and professional. The food at Cap Falco was top-notch. Thank you again for the good cooperation.
From Marcus H. on 03.06.2023
Fjord 36 Open “Titán”
It was absolutely superb. It honestly couldn’t have been a better day & the guys on board were brilliant. Really friendly & accommodating, they made it for us. The whole family had such a great time. I will definitely book with you again, ideally with the same boat & crew!
From Richard on 31.05.2023
Day charter itineraries
Everything was perfect: A beautiful and well-maintained boat, a very pleasant crew and apart from a cloudburst in the afternoon, the weather was also wonderful! We will definitely book this package again soon.
From Heike K. on 31.05.2023
Fjord 41 XL „Pool One“
As always, it was a really great, amazing trip. Great crew, great boat. It was really brilliant again! We'll be back, no question. 😊
From Bernd J. on 27.05.2023
The day on the Jani was wonderful. We thank you very much for the perfect organisation and will definitely recommend you.
From Anja on 25.05.2023
We had two amazing weeks on the yacht. The boat is very well soundproofed below deck. You hear almost nothing from the neighbouring cabins. It is very stable in the waves and has everything you need on board. The seakeaper and the DPS dynamic positioning system are brilliant 😎. We had the best captain ever! He always found us a place in the harbour and took great care of us and our well-being. We circumnavigated the island twice in the two weeks and made a detour to Menorca in the meantime. We experienced so much! It was so beautiful 😊! Many thanks to your team!
From Helmuth on 04.04.2023
Thanks for organising- we had an absolutely lovely day! Really enjoyed so much and captain was really good! Saw dolphins 🐬 so very happy and got to swim in the sea... perfect! Thanks again...
From Emily on 20.02.2023
Through your more than generous invitation to this extraordinary journey, we all enjoyed a unique adventure that we would never have experienced otherwise. Every day offered new surprises, anchoring in postcard-like bays, the evening moorings in the various harbours, the night at the buoy at Castell de Cabrera, and as a lasting highlight, the week-long daily life on this super yacht will remain in our memories forever. Top organised by both of you and planned down to the smallest detail, including the crew with Vicky and Helena - we couldn't have had it better. Being perfectly looked after for a whole week by these two enchanting girls, how they spoiled us with their delicacies from the on-board kitchen and sweetened our days with their warm and fresh manner - not only with the obligatory ice cream after lunch - was the icing on the cake. All of this will remain unforgettable for us for all time and we would like to thank you once again for the great relaxing days we were able to spend with you, that we were allowed to spend with you. THANKS SOOOO MUCH !!!! 🤗😄
From Fam. S. on 22.09.2022
From the first contact, you gave us excellent advice and very friendly service. Thanks to your foresight, our day charter could take place exactly as we wanted. We would also like to thank Dennis, our skipper, very much. He looked after us exceptionally well from start to finish. He listened to all our wishes, suggested different options himself and was always interested in making this day perfect for us. His sense of humour, his very polite and emphatic manner and his experience guided us safely and at the same time with a lot of joy through the day. Dennis is OUR skipper, just the way we want him to be. Looking back, it was the most beautiful day charter with the best organisation and the most excellent skipper we have ever had.
From Stefan on 19.09.2022
Baia Azzurra 63 „Pongo“
It was another great one on Pongo. We were on Cabrera in no time. Great cave, great harbour. Simon is a wonderful host and Miguel makes excellent coffee. The seabobs also performed well. So we'd love to come back again.
From Uwe S. on 18.07.2022
Just to say we had a great time yesterday. Dennis was fantastic very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. He made our Yacht trip a first class experience. Looking forward to a return trip as your service was fantastic.
From Marie on 14.07.2022
We really spent a sensationally great week with Florian on Pavito. Florian showed us fantastic bays and beaches that are inaccessible from the land side. There was action for our two children all the time: water skiing, seabob, donut, diving and dinghy riding. Florian really took great care of everything and one always had a safe feeling on board Pavito. And then in the evenings, of course, the great gastronomy in the harbours... All in all, an absolutely great holiday. Many thanks to Angeline for the great organisation and especially many thanks to Florian for the friendly and sympathetic way of dealing with us.
From Martin K. on 30.06.2022
Pardo 43 „Filou“
The charter was very pleasant, also especially with the skipper Chris! The boat was in perfect condition and also with the drinks everything worked out very well! Thank you again for your support and see you next time.
From Yannic on 23.06.2022
It was great!!! We had a lot of fun. And I have to say that Toni was a really great captain. Definitely 10/10.
From Lorraine on 29.05.2022
It was great! The boat is great and Toni did a great job too! We definitely had fun and I will be in touch next time I am here. 😉
From Sascha on 23.05.2022
The trip was really good and we had a lot of fun. We would love to do it again!
From Jannis on 23.05.2022
We had a fabulous day thank you. Florian was an excellent skipper. The boat was a perfect size for the 6 of us. He took us to a great bay with beach bar. It was a great day for all of us, thank you. You’re service was also excellent too so thank you.
From Nick C. on 23.05.2022
Princess S60 “Aquavista”
We had a great day. Everything worked out perfectly and the boat was great. Captain and stewardess were also great. Many thanks for the professional organisation!
From Andreas C. on 21.05.2022
Thanks so very much for yesterday - 7 absolutely exhausted mothers had the most incredible day. Toni was a brilliant captain - we’d love to use him again when we come back with our families.
From Emma on 07.05.2022
Thank you very much for a great afternoon on the water yesterday. It was absolutely great, especially our skipper Dennis did a great job. It was a great day. Thank you very much.
From Yvonne on 19.04.2022
Very good charter service with good boats in the most luxurious port on the island of Mallorca. Angeline who is the person who attended us is German but speaks perfect Spanish and it was an exquisite attention, we will contact her again without doubt. An incredible experience leaving a top port on the island.
From Jota on 15.02.2022
We were very enthusiastic! Great service, always helpful and friendly. From the organisation to the actual trip to the great stops in between, everything was perfect. Our day was made possible by Angeline and our super captain unforgettable. Thank you very much, Marina Balear!
From Steffi on 10.10.2021
On the occasion of a birthday, the day trip on Gin Tonic from Port Adriano was to be a special event. We had some special requests, which were perfectly implemented thanks to you - thank you also for your suggestions! Our expectations of this day on Gin Tonic were exceeded in any case - it was the perfect day! Thank you Team Marina Balear - we will definitely book with you again!
From Karin on 19.09.2021
It was wonderful from A - Z. Great boat, great captain and fantastic food. We all had a lot of fun. Hope to do it again soon! 😊😉
From Tobias M. on 04.09.2021
We had a great day on board, everything was perfect, especially the service of the crew. Many thanks also to you for the perfect service.
From Heiko K. on 03.09.2021
Aicon 72 SL „Manzanos II“
Very nice crew, beautiful yacht, super toys on board like jet ski. We had a lot of fun and a super nice day!
From Alex W. on 01.09.2021
Thank you so much for everything. Alex and Sarah were perfect and so was our day! A big compliment to you to the team. We will recommend you to others and would love to do this again.
From Matthias K. on 31.07.2021
We had a perfect day, top charter (Marina Balear), top maintained boat, top Dennis (skipper), always happy to return...
From Tobias on 30.07.2021
Azimut 68S “Cristina”
We enjoyed the excursion very much. The two crew members were very accommodating and took good care of us. The ship was very well maintained and perfectly suited for our trip. Thank you very much for your organisation. We will be happy to recommend you and come back to you for a future visit to the island.
From Susanne S. on 25.07.2021
Azimut 68S “Cristina”
Our day on the Manzanos was super nice. A beautiful yacht and really good for 12 people. Roberto the skipper and Annalin our stewardess are a great team. Very attentive and very nice. All in all, a super unforgettable experience.
From Klaus R. on 10.07.2021
Wow wow wow what a fantastic experience. First charter we have done so needed some guidance on best solution. Fabian at Marina Balear was able to advise on best boat and itinerary. We looked at other companies first but were not comfortable they fully understood our requirements. The boats on offer from Fabian were fantastic. Our experience was further enhanced with the fabulous crew on Habana IV, Vicki and Maria who helped turn our trip into a holiday of a lifetime. I’m not usually one for leaving reviews but thought it only fair to let everyone know if you are looking for a boat charter you need to call Marina Balear. Didn’t want the trip to end.
From Steve C. on 09.07.2021
Thank you again for your help and organisation for our tour. Great job! 👍 Everyone had a lot of fun and Florian did a great, very professional job.
From Jens F. on 17.06.2021
We all really enjoyed the trip, Gaspar is a great skipper and hopefully didn't get bored because we wanted the trip to be chilled out. We will definitely see each other again and will gladly recommend you at every opportunity!
From Thomas on 26.05.2021
Pearl 65 „Honeybeez“
Thank You very much. Everything was wonderful! The crew is perfect! The boat is comfortable and nice.
From Jane S. on 09.04.2021
Pearl 65 „Honeybeez“
The trip was really great. If I had been allowed to wish for something else, I really wouldn't have known anything. Tal and Mel are a great team and Honeybeez II is very well maintained. Thanks again for everything and see you next time.
From Jürgen S. on 28.07.2020
Uncomplicated and perfect organisation of our trip. Great skipper, great yacht, all in all a wonderful day at sea!
From Alexander on 21.07.2020
We came home safe and sound from a very nice tour on BUNKER. The yacht and crew were in a completely different league from the yachts we have sailed before. Everyone, but especially Captain Albert, deserves the highest praise. Of course we are also happy if the crew had a good impression of us; we are happy to return this praise. They were beautiful days, BUNKER was a very nice and good recommendation.
From F. Schmidt on 11.06.2020
We were really very happy and really enjoyed the time - the skipper and chef/stewardess were great! Everything was just right.
From Adela on 27.07.2019
The 3 days flew by, of course. All in all, it was a really nice time with a great crew. Vicki and Maria really read every wish from your eyes and Maria's food was not only good, as you announced, but terrific! The restaurant reservations were also perfect, even if the "on-board cuisine" didn't really need them. The Habana IV is a very beautiful and above all spacious yacht, so that we had plenty of room with 8 people. Everything was in perfect condition and there were no problems. Really top. The highlight for our kids was of course the Seabob! All in all, the days were an absolute success, not least because of your really very good and professional organisation. To organise something like this with 3 days' notice and to carry it out completely smoothly is certainly not normal and speaks for you and your charter agency. Many thanks again for this!
From Matthias M. on 10.06.2019
We would like to thank you for the great yacht. But we would especially like to mention your skipper Bodo. He did everything in his power to give us 3 wonderful days. Friendly, courteous and an absolute expert in his field. Many thanks again.
From H. Bonn on 03.06.2019
Jeanneau 64 „Thea of Southampton“
This was the second time on SY Thea. Last year we were with our kids. Last week we went with some friends. We have a lot of experience on sailing boats. In the past we used to sail ourselves, after that we chartered a motorsailor 4 times 2 weeks in Turkey. On Thea we feel like ‘coming home’. Santi is the best captain you can imagine. So dedicated and proud on the boat, the owner. Everything with a huge professionality and always a smile. The same for the host Olivia. She works all day long with a smile, cooks like a pro, keeps the interior so perfectly clean. Really fantastic. To resume in one word….those people are made of GOLD!!!!
From Anonymous on 28.05.2019
This is the third time I have rented a yacht from Marina Balear and I am always thrilled...Super competent, fast and friendly service... Great boats and it's just great fun! And thank you all for the support, because it was professional and you supported me on all the shoots with the celebrities! Suzi Quatro, Andre Eisermann and the Cordalis-Katzenberger family were also really enthusiastic! Gladly again and again.
From Eyeland TV on 09.04.2018
I would like to thank you once again for the great tour. The service, the team and the skipper have more than celebrated top performance on a sympathetic level. It was a wonderful day for everyone – especially for my daughter.
From Dirk I. on 04.08.2017
Everything went really well yesterday, we were totally thrilled with your boat and also with our skipper Alberto. Everything worked out great and we were very happy and look forward to next year.
From Alexandra on 25.07.2017
The sailing yacht was in very good condition. The crew was particularly kind in responding to our every wish. The skipper was a professional and took us to remote places. The food was a brilliant treat. Even today I think back on this time with great pleasure. It was one of THE most beautiful moments. Thank you very much.
From Frank W. & Ines P.. on 14.07.2017
Thanks again for the great trip and the good service. My girls and I really enjoyed it. After I told my husband about it, he wanted to do the same for our next holiday.
From Dany on 28.05.2017
I just wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for helping us enjoy a fantastic day on Gin Tonic last week. We enjoyed every minute of our time aboard and swimming in the sea and having a great lunch at Es Repos in Puerto Vells. Also, all of our party wanted to pass on our huge thanks to our wonderful skipper, Victoria, who made an exciting day even better. She was great fun, very friendly and a superb skipper in charge of a beautiful yacht... We cannot praise her too highly, a great asset.
From Nigel on 26.05.2017
It was a great day today. Thank you very much. The skipper was also just great. See you next time.
From Adalbert on 22.05.2017
We have chartered with Marina Balear several times, last week again. The staff are very friendly, competent and helpful. The yachts are in great condition. Every time it is a new, beautiful and interesting experience at sea that you talk about for a long time and already look forward to the next charter, thanks to Marina Balear.
From H. Bosch on 05.05.2017
The crew was great, fulfilled every wish, whipped up great food, and always kept the ship in great order. Always happy to do it again.
From J. & A. on 17.01.2017
Thanks again for the great charter experience. We all had a lot of fun. The service on board was also very good.
From Anonymous on 17.01.2017
The recommendation for the boat was exactly right. The boat was good, the atmosphere was good, the weather was good. The excursion to Sa Foradada was a little highlight. All in all a wonderful, successful excursion, everyone was happy.
From Klaus K. on 12.12.2016
Thank you very much for the great organisation of yesterday. Our day on board the GiGi with Neil was super! Simply brilliant. The birthday surprise was a complete success. The whole family had a lot of fun. We would be very happy to charter a yacht with you again in the near future.
From Steffen H. on 28.05.2016
