At Coral Yachting we make sure that our customers can have an amazing experience on our boats. If you are planning on hiring a boat in Ibiza and you are keen on sport, we can recommend that you try the following activities:

  1. Snorkel:

    All you need are goggles and a breathing tube to appreciate the incredible marine life hidden in the waters of Ibiza and Formentera. Roam the meadows of Posidonia (declared an Intangible Heritage site by Unesco) where hundreds of marine species make their home. Remember that you must never interfere with the fish or other sea life. In the ocean, we can look but not touch! This other article recommends our favourite places to go snorkelling. We are sure you will enjoy the views!
  1. Seabob:

    If you really love the sea and nature, you will take care of not contaminate the marine ecosystems. Fun and ecology go hand in hand with the Seabob: the latest word in jet skis. It is a light, easy-to-handle vehicle that is powered by a propulsion motor. It has handlebars to steer with, but the best thing about it is that you can ride it at high-speed underwater as well as on the surface, making it much more versatile and fun than regular jet skis. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Make sure you add a Seabob when you hire your boat in Ibiza!
  1. Paddle surf:

    This activity really caught on around two or three summers ago, and since then these paddle surfers have become a normal sight at every beach in Ibiza. Even so, here is a little secret about this sport: the best way to do it is to take your board some distance away from the beaches. You will be in a much quieter environment and can paddle your way between natural swimming areas. If you want to add a further difficulty to the experience, try the alternatives of paddle surf yoga or paddle surf pilates. You will improve your balance, improve your body tone and disconnect completely from your routines.
