In Alcudia is a excellent dive operator called Skualo Diving. Professional service and diving. Very good equipment and great hospitality. Diving is relaxed, nice dive sites to be discovered like swiss cheese and isla formentor. Dived into caves, a lot of fish, barracudas and octopus.

Booking our excursion with Bellini Sup Center was very easy and I was surprised at how affordable a 3-hour paddleboard trip was for a family of four. Emelio was extremely helpful answering all of our questions and even picked us up from our apartment on the morning of our trip. We drove to Port Alcudia where we met Eugenie, who would be our guide. All of the equipment was provided: paddleboards, wet suits and Eugenie even took fantastic photos with his GoPro. Our daughters, 9 & 14 years old, had a blast! The scenery around Alcudia is simply stunning, and Eugenie provided us with a lot of interesting history and facts about the area and Mallorca in general. This excursion really made our vacation unforgettable!

I'd recommend this highly for anyone visiting Mallorca, particularly if you've never SUPed before. Since I'm putting the first English review on, I'll give a bit more detail about our experience. Went on an "Adventure" SUP tour with Bellini this morning - originally scheduled for yesterday morning but the wind was up making the "Adventure" tour we booked too dangerous - Emilio gave us the option of a "Discovery" tour yesterday afternoon from a different beach or re-scheduling the "Adventure" tour for the next morning, which we did. We met at the Bellinin Surf Shop in the centre of Port de Pollenca and the owner, Emilio, drove us out to the launch point. We had an absolute blast, our first time SUPing and we picked it up very easily. If you have bad balance or have never used a paddle for canoeing or kayaking, it might take you a bit longer to get the hang of paddling standing up, but the technique is basic and the guide tells you everything you need to know. We were on the water for 3 hours - my husband and myself and one other gentleman, our Mallorcan guide was super fun and spoke English very well. We paddled out from near Alcudia along the rocky shore and cliffs of the peninsula, had one or two stops along the in coves to rest/relax (if you're SUPing for the first time you find your feet/legs get a bit tired) for a few minutes. Once we turned around, we started the "adventure" part of the tour and made several stops for cliff jumping and exploring some cool sea caves - the other guy on the tour wasn't terribly adventurous and didn't cliff jump so up to you how much you challenge yourself, if you may prefer to just swim or stay relaxing on the anchored SUPs while the rest of your group gets an adrenaline rush.... (As an aside, if you've looked into coasteering with Experience Mallorca, they go along the same section of coastline only more slowly and hampered by lots of gear...only difference is it includes abseiling...we were glad we decided to SUP instead.) Once we arrived back at the starting point, Emilio collected us and took us back the surf shop. All in all a brilliant morning, we really enjoyed learning to SUP plus a bit of adrenaline rush and exploration with Bellini and would recommend a tour with them to anyone - we love the Adventure Tour but I'm sure the others are great as well. Can't wait to SUP again...might even buy our own boards :) As a side note, when I tried to make contact through the "contact form" on the SUP tour page, I wasn't able to so I went to the surf shop website and used the email address which Emilio replied to very promptly.

We booked on short notice and were grateful to be accommodated. Had a wonderful instructor who was enthusiastic, spoke English well, was fun and most of all, patient :) Great value for money. Loved learning a new skill.

Either for snorkeling or diving a thoroughly recommendable water activities centre. Micha and team were recommended to us by the girl at Alcudia Tourist office and how grateful we were. A team of profesional and friendly people who know what they are doing and make you feel at home as soon as you step into their shop. The highlight of our trip to wonderful and beautiful Majorca for sure. We can't wait to come back and book a dive with them again. Visit them. You will not regret it!
