Comments from guests:
“I participated as a guest in the Barcelona-Menorca crossing at the end of August and I have to admit that it was the best week of a summer and quite complete. The environment was unbeatable, the most diverse and entertaining activities (see the comments of my crewmates, to which I add a reference to an invaluable game of cards!) And the skippers, Pedro and Luis, very professional, patient and didactic (even for a neophyte like me, who ended up learning and participating in more than one maneuver), as well as absolutely charming. Although the Tramontana winds played a trick on us and we had to do without the north of the island, the skippers soon found alternatives and interesting substitution activities. The organization was perfect and the people were also, not to mention the preciousness of the sailboat. Barcelona remains a bit to me afterward (I live in Belgium) but, being around, I have no doubt that Neptune would be my sailing school. I am left with a very affectionate memory of all my fellow travelers, tinged with a certain envy “- Rosa N.
“Neptune is a very good Nautical School but it is much more than that. They have a very well organized navigation club, it offers the possibility of navigating in a flexible way and makes you feel part of a great family. In addition, they organize longer trips. I have experienced this recently in the journey back to Menorca from which I have just arrived. Fantastic days learning and enjoying, with great people. Well organized week, safe crossing, very didactic at the same time relaxing and playful. Pedro and Luis are responsible and professional skippers and at the same time sailing companions attentive to make us feel good. Bravo Neptuno !!! “- Isabel V.
“Incredible Barcelona Menorca crossing, great team, and crew. We were able to do a lot of activities, we saw a dolphin with its baby, snorkeling in Cala Macarelleta, a lot of sailing and motor, trolling, incursions into sea caves, real maneuvers like a M.O.B., anchoring, we saw the XIV Copa del Rey Panerai Classic Sailing Regatta, etc …
We learned many things and there were very good vibes among all the members of the crew.
Just to thank Neptuno and his great team. Especially the skippers who accompanied us on this adventure Luis and Pedro. And also to Sveti Nikola, our sailboat on this trip. “- Josep Maria R.
“Insuperable! Departure for a week with the Neptuno Navigation Club to Menorca. An unforgettable experience with a very good quality-price ratio! Although it was a vacation, the skippers have completely turned to those who wanted to learn more! Good professionals and excellent people! I will definitely continue sailing with them⛵️ “- David S.
