Default Dinner cruise

I am sure I read a post a year or so ago from somebody who had been on an evening dinner cruise ..... I thought it was Tudor Dawn but when I look at their website their evening cruise just offers a selection of tapas. The post I though I had read included a full 3 course dinner on deck

Anyone know of any company offering such?

I'm actually having the same dilema cd. There are so many companies offering various boat trips at the moment, but its difficult to find one that is doing something different. I think they are cutting back in order to cut costs because of competition.

We had a 3 course meal on the TD in 2005, but as you rightly said CD, i think they have changed their menu now to just tapas. Might be worth emailing them though as the owners, Simon & Susie, might be able to sort something out for you.

Just to say that in the end we went for the Tudor Dawn Sunset cruise

It was wonderful

They have a capacity of 12 for their sunset cruise but we were very lucky as we were a party of 6 and nobody else joined us that evening so we had the whole boat to ourselves. It may have been a Bit too cosy had there been 6 more people with us

Simon and Susie made us very welcome .... Some of us just chilled and admired the sailing ..... We were fortunate to catch a fine warm breeze so got up quite an exhilarating speed. Those who wanted to, lent a hand with the ropes and took the wheel ..... It was all very low key and relaxed.

We sailed round to a secluded cove near Formentor, which of course I have convinced myself was the Mad Dogs bay , and snorkels and fins were provided ..... We all jumped into the crystal clear sea and had a great time swimming with the fishes ...... And there were plenty of them thanks to Simon scattering half a loaf of bread just where we were all snorkelling.

Once back on board and dried off, Susie prepared us a lovely tray of Tapas and we were offered wine, beer or soft drinks as we sailed back into the sunset

A great time was had by all aboard a lovely old wooden sailing boat .... An opportunity that doesn't present itself every day.

Our party consisted of 4 over 40's and 2 older teens but I would say it is an experience that would be enjoyed by all ...... The boat has steps so it isn't compulsory to jump into the sea or even to go into the sea at all .... We just dared one another to jump and being a competative bunch, we all did.

What was all the more amazing was that we managed all of this the day after some friends of ours had led us astray until the early hours lol

Sounds great cd. We went on the daytime cruise a few years ago and it sounds very similar, although no tapas just drinks. We went to the Mad Dogs bay too and jumped off and snorkelled etc. Great fun apart from climbing up the ladder back into the boat

Well done for managing it after the night before except I would beg to differ on who led who astray!!!!

In which case debz perhaps you would be able to answer my question re timings as they would probably be similar?

Bella I think cd's was from 5pm till 8pm. Ours was for the same length of time but earlier in the day 11/2 or 1/3 can't quite remember as it was 3 years ago. Well worth doing

Correct re timings and lets just say that in truth neither party needed leading astray as we were all quite capable of getting there by ourselves

Does anyone know of a similar cruise to the Tudor Dawn? For this week?
I emailed them last night and they have left the port.
Pity. They are great.

Hi Jiggy

You could try GRAN ATALAYA SAILING

Noticed this boat in September and it looks much like the Tudar Dawn
