After hotel pickup, you’ll greet your guide and relax in an air-conditioned minivan as you travel along Mallorca’s curvaceous coastline. Listen to the geological history of Covo de Coloms — subterranean caverns formed over millions of years — and feel your excitement heighten as you arrive at the water’s edge.
Don your wetsuit and wade along the seashore towards the caves: at the entrance, you’ll need to start swimming in order to access the prehistoric landmarks.
In the atmospheric darkness, you’ll crawl, swim and stroll through the labyrinth of caves alongside your guide. Admire glittering underground lakes, splintering stalagmites and vibrant red mineral deposits.
After thoroughly exploring Covo de Coloms, return to dry land and reflect on your exciting experience during the return journey to your hotel.

An absolutely awesome tour! Most of my photos unfortunately didn't turn out since there was condensation in my waterproof case, but the the ones that did turn out didn't do it justice anyway. Jose was a great guide, and although there were only two of us on this tour, he still took us out and showed us a great time.
A few words of words of advice though:
This is not for everyone. This is a pretty physically demanding tour which Viator doesn't necessarily do very good job of disclosing. There is a 40 minute hike each way to the spot which is very rocky and uneven, and slippery if it's wet. Bring your hiking shoes! Also wear pants, not shorts. The girl that was with me got her legs pretty cut up by the bushes on the hike getting there and back. The other thing not mentioned is the 200m swim to the cave or 100m if you cliff jump. The water was pretty rough that day, so that swim exhausted me before I even got to the cave.
Again, I would highly recommend! Just recognize that this is a pretty physically demanding tour, but the results are worth it!
A really amazing and unforgettable experience!
We had a great time on this tour, highly recommend! Everything from the hike around 1 mile each way to the cliff to the inside of the cave was breathtakingly gorgeous. We did have to cliff jump into the Sea, around 2.5 meter jump, and then swim into the opening of the cave, just as an FYI for those afraid of heights. Also, in previous reviews, it was stated no swimming experience was necessary, which I don't particularly agree with. Not sure if it was just particularly rough the day we went, but it was definitely a little challenging to swim into the cave. It was pretty exhausting, so would definitely say you should be somewhat fit and comfortable with swimming against the current. The inside of the cave though was absolutely amazing, it felt completely untouched and was something unlike I've ever seen before. Was truly a natural beauty I would say should not be missed if you are in the area. I also liked that the cave was a little more untouched than the larger one many people visit, Cuevas del Drach. Overall, amazing experience with great, knowledgable guides.
Our hands down favorite experience in Mallorca! The tour guides were awesome, the cave was amazing, GREAT GREAT time!
Great guides with tons of energy.
smaller groups might help bc so many tourists don't understand caving example i caught one person pee in the cave while we weren't looking so we couldn't stop him and a few people were touching so many formations I think if smaller groups went it would be easier to watch the uneducated people and stress how much they need to pay attention and care for the cave they are visiting.
We did plan B. This was not as amazing so i wish we could be told the plans change before getting there but its difficult to do and that's why i am still giving 5 stars. This is a beginners trip i would've liked to sign up for something for more experienced cavers. nevertheless beautiful place and great to see plan A and plan B. Cheers to the guides
This was a fantastic trip! The caves were absolutely amazing, serene and beautiful! The hardest part of the trip was swimming to and from the caves but we had a life vest on so I knew I wouldn't drown. Jumping off the cliff was scary as well! The guides were so helpful and sweet and helped out tremendously! If you love an adventure, this is the trip for you! Thanks for our great guides: Juan and Jose! Both were fabulous!
Great experience. The guide Rafa took a group of seven people of varying ages and ability and made sure every person had an experience to remember. I would highly recommend this. The waves were too high to swim to the caves advertised but we had a great time in an alternative cavern close by The beer after Not included but thanks to those in my group was great too.
Viator were also good at keeping in touch re the hotel pick ups etc.
Our guide, Juan, was amazing and my husband and I had an amazing time on the sea caving tour. Would highly recommend to anyone with a sense of adventure. We were picked up in Palma and taken to the east side of the island. From there we hiked to the beach you see in the thumb nail. The guides take you into the cave, which you then tour for what felt like one to two hours. You climb around in the cave and jump into pools within the cave.
This was a life changing experience! I had never done anything like this before, and I will always remember it! We hiked to the cave, so there is a little bit of walking, but overall a person of average health can do this. My husband is not a great swimmer, so no need to worry if you cant swim like a pro. You wear buoyancy gear that helps you float all the way to the cave, so need to worry about the swimming part. HIGHLY RECOMMEND doing this! Plus you get to see the BEAUTIFUL scenery of the island while you walk and while you swim to the cave. :
My wife and I went on a sea caving excursion with Experience Mallorca, and it was far and away one of the most amazing experiences either of us has ever had! First and foremost, our guide, Jose, was absolutely fantastic. He kept the group safe and moving as he explained the geological phenomena we observed while exploring the caves. Jose was also very funny and friendly, and very proud of his heritage, as he even took the time to explain a lot about the history of Spain to my wife and I during the rides to and from our pickup location. As for the activity itself, words cannot describe how incredible it was to be swimming in caves and underground lakes that are thousands upon thousands of years old, observing incredible formations of stalactites and stalagmites - it's truly seemed like we were in an alien world! And that's to say nothing of the many opportunities Jose afforded us to jump off various ledges into the water, which was so much fun. We even ended the day at a local pub, basking in the sun, chatting about cultural similarities and differences there were about a half dozen different nationalities among our small group of 8, tossing back a few cold drinks, and reflecting upon the wonderment of what we'd just experienced. In short, we would highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting Palma de Mallorca!
P.S. Before going on the trek, we were somewhat curious about the skill level required to participate, in terms of caving, swimming, climbing, etc, but it was all easily accomplished with novice skill. The wet suits lend a lot of buoyancy, which when coupled with the buoyancy from the very salty sea water makes it extremely easy to swim and the hiking and occasional short bits of climbing were not difficult, though there were a few areas in the cave where you could do some slightly more advanced climbing/jumping if you wanted to lots of fun!. In short, don't be intimidated if you're not the rock climbing or spelunking type - only basic skills are required.
Lastly, to our wonderful guide Jose, gracias por todo, y vamos a estar en contacto pronto!
