One of the best ways to explore Ibiza is from the deck of a boat, and there are a bevy of tour operators that welcome travelers aboard to do just that. Along with taking passengers around the island and in and out of small coves, many tours also include food, drinks and the use of sports equipment (such as stand-up paddleboards and snorkeling supplies).

Some of the traveler-approved operators include Charteralia, which offers customized chartered catamaran or sailboat trips for groups, and Ibiza Boat Hire, which does the same with speed and motor boats. Along with the views, recent travelers can't say enough about their friendly and competent boat captains.

Boat tours depart at different points around the island, from Ibiza Town to Sant Antoni de Portmany to Playa d'en Bossa. And these tours tend to be very expensive: For instance, a half-day cruise on one of Ibiza Boat Hire boats will cost you around 550 euros (about $650), but it includes snorkeling, paddleboards and kayaks and drinks. If you're looking for a more affordable option and don't mind sharing the boat with your fellow tourists, consider the Formentera Explorer or Aquabus Ferry Boats.
