SOME QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE WHEN PREPARING AN EXCURSION WITH MAR MENOR CHARTER.

We are in Km 13 of the Manga del Mar Menor, at the Marina Deportivo Tomás Maestre. Dock 3, dock 28.
There is a map of location in our contact section. You can come and visit the boat if we are not at sea!
The weather in this part of Spain is warm and sunny almost every day (from May to September) so the sailing conditions are excellent.

Yes! And you can download a practical list here LINK
The most important things to bring are lots of sun protection, sunglasses and a jacket in case it is windy or cooler if we go out at night.
A hat is always good to go sailing and remember your swimwear and towel is you are planning to take swim!
Q3. Is food provided?
We will have water on board and some light snacks (think olives and nuts), but please bring your own food with you.
Fruit on a hot day is very refreshing !! We have a kitchen with oven and refrigerator to keep refreshments cool. We also have full kitchenware.
If you are planning a full day of navigation, we can cook and organise food for your group, but please let us know in advance. Or you can bring food and drink for the whole day if you prefer.
Q4. What kind of excursions do you offer?
We offer various types of trips for families, couples, groups of friends or even business days out.
