Do I need a boat license to drive a boat in Ibiza?

You can always rent a boat with a skipper so that you neither have to worry about discovering the most beautiful routes nor a boat license. If you feel adventurous enough to sail through the Mediterranean waters in Ibiza, you need to consider the following:

You can rent a boat without a boat license in Ibiza when the boat is up to five meters long and holds a maximum motor power of 15hp or a sailboat that’s up to six meters long; you are only allowed to sail during daylight hours without a license

If you do have a boat license, the following applies according to Spanish law:

  • EU citizens can operate a boat in Spanish waters with a valid boat license, eg a French citizen who received their boat license in France can operate a boat in Spain
  • EU citizens who received their boat license in a country other than their country of origin must prove that they are either a resident in that country or have been at the time of receiving the license, eg a French citizen who has a Portuguese boat license must prove that they are either a resident in Portugal or have been at the time of receiving their boat license
  • If you are an EU citizen and want to head into Spanish waters with a boat that you rented outside of Spain, you can do so considering the restrictions explained above
  • Non-EU citizens need a specific certificate to operate a boat in Spanish waters - they can apply for it through a consulate

Sailing conditions in Ibiza

The position of the Balearic Islands offers protection from strong wind gusts, meaning you will stay safe on your boat while enjoying your sailing holiday in Ibiza. The summer months are particularly popular with tourists, meaning crowded beaches, but the wind conditions are perfect for sailing in Ibiza.

Plan your sailing holiday in Ibiza in the months between May and October for the perfect wind conditions and the best weather. Swell in the summer tends to be on the lower side, normally below a meter and the sea is generally smooth and calm. August boasts the hottest temperatures, but a dip in the tranquil Mediterranean will cool you off from the heat. On average, temperatures reach 30 degrees.

When is the best time for a boat rental in Ibiza?

Choosing the right time for a boat rental in Ibiza depends on your preferences and the experience you seek. The summer months, from June to September, offer warm weather and vibrant island life, making it the peak season. During this time, you can enjoy lively beach parties, clear waters, and bustling marinas. However, it's essential to consider that this period attracts larger crowds and higher prices. If you prefer a more serene experience with milder weather, the shoulder seasons of late spring (May) or early fall (October) might be ideal. During these times, you can still relish the beauty of Ibiza with fewer visitors and potentially more budget-friendly options. Ultimately, the best time for your boat rental depends on your desired atmosphere and the level of activity you prefer.

How much does it cost to rent a boat in Ibiza?

The cost of a boat rental in Ibiza varies according to the boat type and season. On average it costs 99.72 EUR to rent a boat per day per person in Spain. Motorboats are at the top of the price range at 179.39 EUR per person per day while RIBs are at the lower range at 53.58 EUR per person per day.

Why a sailboat rental in Ibiza is a must

Embarking on a sailboat rental in Ibiza is a must for those craving an authentic and immersive maritime adventure. Sailing offers a unique and eco-friendly way to explore the enchanting waters around Ibiza by harnessing the power of the wind. Prospective sailors should weigh the advantages and challenges of sailboat rentals. On the positive side, sailboats provide a serene and leisurely journey, allowing you to fully savor the breathtaking scenery and crystal-clear waters. However, it's crucial to acknowledge that sailing demands a certain level of expertise and skill, particularly in the potentially windy conditions around Ibiza. Novice sailors might find it advantageous to choose a skippered charter or opt for a different type of boat for a more straightforward boating experience. Ultimately, a sailboat rental in Ibiza caters to those who relish the excitement of sailing and possess the necessary skills to navigate the open seas.

The top routes for a boat rental in Ibiza

Start your private sailing holiday with a boat rental in Ibiza in the northwest of the island between San Antonio and San Vicente and sail to Puerto de Ibiza. The coast of the northwestern part of the island is lined with almond, olive, and fig trees, picturesque woods, and green valleys. When sailing this route, you will inevitably discover Ibiza’s large and small bays with stunning white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. How is this not an invitation to relax in the sun?

Before heading down to Puerto de Ibiza stop at Cala Mastella. This fantastic little cove is surrounded by lush nature and offers a great little beach and a romantic seaside restaurant.

Another stunning route leads you down the island's western side to the island of Formentera. Start in San Antonio and enjoy the magical views.

An alternative route is to do a complete loop around the island of Ibiza, with the possibility of stopping off at Formentera. Sailing around Ibiza is a true delight as you get to see the island from a different perspective and can stop at any little bay or beach you please. ​​Thanks to the island’s compact size, you can sail around Ibiza in a couple of days or you can extend your trip to do some island hopping around Mallorca, Minorca, and Formentera
