NEMO ship: Amazing trip but the service onboard should improve

We book a trip in the NEMO ship. The ship (owned by the same company) is a small one (not as the Nautilus); it can approach the coast line so you can really enjoy a wonderful... read more

Great fun for all the family. A great day out, perfect to see the amazing Spanish sea life. They also take your picture at the start next to the sea which you can purchase in a frame or on a plate.

What a fantastic little find, we decided to go on a trip round the mendes and found this excursion. We arrived at the Quay and then set off around the islands to see the beautiful coastline, when got into shallower waters we were offered to go down stairs into the viewing area which was all glass,it was breath taking to...

Went with my husband on the hour and a half trip around the coast. Was a bit choppy, with a lovely breeze. Sunny but clouded over as the trip progressed. We had our photo taken as we got on and it was printed out into a booklet and on a plate as the trip progressed, we paid ten euros for... More

This review is for the 3 hour trip, I think it's route 3 but I won't advise this trip for teenagers as for approximately 2 hours they weren't interested in the beautiful coast line. For the children the only thing that interested them was the swimming off a coastal bay which lasted approximately 20 minutes and when they were allowed... More

I took this trip with my family in July 2016 and it was very enjoyable. I'm not really sure where the pirate connection comes but that is only a minor point. The trip is three house cruise on a lovely wooden boat (large) up the coast and returning around the Medes Islands. The trip also includes a boat journey to... More

An hour and a half cruise around the Medes Islands was great with beautiful scenery. I really didn't care for the glass bottom fish watching thing. It was worth the price for the beautiful vistas.

Great value 2 hour boat trip. Lovely route along the coast and around the Iles Medes. We were able to get in close to the coves and swim if we wanted.

I can only comment on route 2 but I won't be returning to try any other routes. It started off with an uneventful trip out along the coast and whilst the scenery is beautiful it's not what you go on a glass bottomed boat for. There is no explanation of what you're looking at and the engine fumes are very... More
