Wow! Thankyou No Frills for two fantastic trips very much worth the money!
PLAYA FORMENTOR GLASS BOTTOM BOAT TRIP
I had researched before our hols to Puerto Alcudia for good travel companies and saw No Frills as a good choice. First we - my boyfriend and I both 22 - did this trip, reasonable price @ 23euro each. The rep was extremely helpful and we got the boa at the Ciduad Blanca jetty on Alcudia Beach. Worth the money - plenty of room to sit on the top of the boat taking in the fabulous scenery. They did one swim stop on the way, nice touch!
When we got to Formentor beach it really was a WOW moment. they gave us 1hr30 free time @ the beach - we just relaxed on the beach, we saw it enough time. If you wanted to do this and have a sit down meal I doubt you could in the time as it was busy there. I'd recommend this for all ages.
ANACONA II CATAMARAN TRIP
This was an unforgettable experience! 55euro each, we thought it was very much worth the money. Great for adults, maybe not quite so much for children.
There are nets you can sunbathe on at the front of the boat, but if you are desperate to be on these I'd say go straight to the Port in Alucida to get a spot early as they fill up quickly and allowed a max 10 people on each nets (there are two nets). Plus you did have to keep moving for crew to set sails etc. We were very happy however with our spot on the bench looking out towards the front of the catamaran - beautiful! There is a chance for some shad too in the bar area if you don't want to be in the sun all the time.
We had 3 swim stops - one on the way and one on return, with a c.2hour stop for snorkelling, kayaking and lunch. The crew provide snorkels - plenty there and we'd thoroughly recommend! The area you stop is stunningly beautiful, with a tiny little beach to go to if you want kayak over! The snorkels are only the simple ones but do the trick nevertheless. 4 kayaks on the boat enough for 2 people, so you may have to wait your turn but try it, good fun!
Food was really nicely prepared, and a chance for some seconds if very hungry. Plenty of drink choice too which was v. nice. Watermelon slices afterwards was a nice touch too. The crew were friendly and very good.
For anyone wanting a a trustworthy company who provide fantastic trips (the other ones sounded really good too) and friendly service, definitely go with No Frills. Thankyou so much with providing us with two brilliant experiences :)

I have nothing to add to the review because it explains perfectly both experiences, and im sure it will help travellers to plan their holiday in Port Alcudia.
All I want to say is that the photos you put with the review are great!!! I wish I had day off tmw to go on it!
