We were not clear about the return schedules since the page shows schedules both for the return to the port of Ibiza and to playa bossa but then they told us that playa bossa was not working, they should inform them when getting off the ferry or leave only the schedules in the app of this season.

Very nice. Definitely recommended to rent a scooter and to bring swimwear. Many shops are closed on Sundays. Departure times are correct. Return (Formentera > Ibiza) the jet leaves at 6.50 - 9.20 - 10.15 - 12.15 - 12.55 - 14.45 - 16.55 - 18.45 - 19.55 - 20.40 - 21.50 - 22.50

We enjoyed every minute of our sailing trip. The only negative is it didn’t last longer.

Very good, but the ferry to come back to ibiza was late about 20minutes

Perfect trip to Formentera. The boat is really confortable.
