So it should be of no surprise at all for you to hear that the first thing I did, when I sat down at my computer today, was to enter into Google that eternal phrase “Ibiza Boat Hire” – life is all about positive action!
So what did I find out about boat hire on Ibiza?
- If no-one you are going with has a sailing licence, hire companies will provide a captain for you
- You can either spend all week in one cove or sail around the island exploring different coves – your choice
- You can sail between the different Balearic Islands if you want to explore further afield
- During July and August you will have to book a berth if you want to dock in one of the 9 ports around the island – otherwise you should be fine or you can just drop anchor in a cove
- Boats come in all different shapes and sizes – from 100+ passenger party boats to 6 berth family yachts
- Boat hire comes in all different lengths of time and can cost less than a similar length stay at a nice hotel
- Peak times are the same as everywhere else in the Med: July and August, but consider those shoulder months: my eye is on the Whitsun half term week at the end of May/beginning of June.
- People without kids should look at late June or early September (cheaper) and if you are clubbers keep in mind the clubbing season: see our Ibiza article for dates.
So if you are not doing anything next June, stop and think of us on our 8-berth yacht with a mojito in hand whilst the sun dries the sea water from our bodies and the captain guides us into port for a fish supper followed by an all nighter at Pascha – I’m thinking Flower Power because I am almost that old and it will be their first week.
