One thing I really wanted to do whilst in Mallorca was go on a boat trip to see some of the spectacular scenery from the water and enjoy the turquoise coloured ocean. I didn’t have to do much research as Tudor Dawn popped up on google straight away and they had exceptional reviews on Trip Advisor.
So myself and 9 friends rented the boat from 11am-5pm on a sunny Friday, we met Simon and Suzie at Puerto Pollensa which was just a short taxi from our villa. The boat was just lovely, there was plenty of room for all of us to sit back, relax and take in the spectacular views on board. The first part of the day was spent sailing out to a nearby bay that was a good spot for snorkelling.
Obviously the Mediterranean has been hugely over fished so there wasn’t a large amount of fish to see but the water was crystal clear which meant for good viewing. By the rocks was a little cave/opening which a couple of people braved (not myself) which made for excellent GoPro video footage.
After an hour or so snorkelling we were so hungry so we had lunch on the boat, sandwiches made by Susie and several drinks to choose from. Once we had all devoured our lunch we headed off to do some more swimming and snorkelling in the ridiculously warm sea. We also loved jumping off the boat which you can see in my Mallorca video here:
Once our tummies had settled from lunch, we sailed over to Formenter Bay and marvelled at the massive boats, saw the hotel where Obama stayed and looked at some phenomenal houses perched on the cliffs.
We reached the most spectacular bay soon after and this is where we spent the last part of our day. Surrounding the famous ‘Night Manager’ house is stunning clear water, unfortunately Tom Hiddleston wasn’t there. We swam, paddle boarded and snorkelled here for about an hour and it was just lovely.
The huge sprawling estate is now owed by Lord Lupton, a very wealthy English man who bought it for £110 million not too long ago. He rents it out to film companies now so you’ve probably seen it pop up in tv and films. The sheer size of this place is beyond expectations and it was so cool to see it so close as I loved the show The Night Manager.
Once we were all back on the boat we had a couple of wines and just soaked it all in. I think we all fell in love with Mallorca so much more after spending a day out on Tudor Dawn.
All too soon our day was up on the lovely Tudor Dawn and it was time to disembark back in Puerto Pollensa. Susie and Simon were fantastic hosts all day, they were happy to chat but also left the group alone to enjoy the day. They provided snorkelling gear, paddle boards and a giant lilo to laze about on.
If you find yourself in Mallorca and would like to do a boat trip I can’t recommend them enough, it was the perfect day and we only wish we had more time!
