Pescaturismo Mallorca

Hello everyone, I hope you're doing well! Today I have an exciting post for you about a cool activity to experience here in Mallorca. Save this for later if you plan to visit the island next year!

Pescaturismo Mallorca

Pescaturismo Mallorca is a cool concept that allows tourists to live an exclusive and personal experience with traditional Mallorcan fishermen on a fishing boat. When my mom and her husband came visit us in July we took them on a fishing trip on the Es Batlets fishing boat that belongs to my boyfriend's cousin and his wife. The fishing excursion along the coast started early in the morning with a breathtaking sunrise on the sea. It also allowed us to discover secret coves, caves and the most spectacular landscapes in the north of Mallorca, such as Coll Baix or Cabo Pinar, while learning all the secrets of fishing. That day we couldn't find any dolphins but if you are lucky, you will even spot some families near the boat. The excursion lasted about 4 hours and included a break we used to eat some delicious snacks that we all brought and to take a relaxing bath in Coll Baix, a secluded cove just behind Alcudia.

Fisherman for a Day with Es Batlets

Our 'captain' was Olga, who is the wife of my boyfriend's cousin and the only woman at the helm of a fishing boat in Mallorca. Together with her husband Carlos, and sometimes with their lovely daughters, they go out fishing in the morning and take tourists with them so they can experience the life of a fisherman (or woman) for a day. Their boat is called Es Batlets. It's a modern fiber boat, very spacious and almost ten metres long so there is lots of space to sit and walk around. We went fishing from Alc├║dia for groupers, lobsters, scorpion fish and more. We even got lucky and caught some fish. It was so interesting to see the different kinds and learn more about them. Let me tell you, Olga is really the best person to accompany you on this adventure and prepare a breakfast with typical Majorcan products or freshly grilled fish from the nets. You will come home all happy and exhausted from a beautiful day on the sea. It's the perfect activity for families and groups of friends as you will have the boat all for yourselves. Highly recommended by me, who has seen and done lots of things here in Mallorca ;-)
