Earvin "Magic" Johnson's summer yacht adventure is sailing on!

Magic, 64, and his wife Earlitha "Cookie" Johnson, 65, have shared several updates on their annual Mediterranean vacation via Instagram, many of which feature their friends and traveling companions LaTanya and Samuel L. Jackson; John and Vicki Palmer; and Cedric the Entertainer and Lorna Wells.

On Saturday, July 6, the NBA legend shared an Instagram post of himself posing in front of a glorious sunset from the boat while in Spain. "Look at the amazing sunrise I got to enjoy at 6 am this morning before my workout in Spain," he wrote in the caption.

Magic wore casual attire in the photo, which showed him leaning against a couch on the yacht's deck. He opted for a gray and blue Los Angeles Baseball T-shirt with matching blue pants.

That same day, he shared a collaborative post with his wife of over 30 years that showcased the group’s visit to the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma in Mallorca, Spain.

“Today, we had an amazing day exploring in Palma de Mallorca, Spain with our friends! We visited one of the largest Mediterranean Gothic churches in Spain that took over 400 years to build," the Believing in Magic author wrote in the caption.

Cookie went on to praise the church for its "beautiful" stained-glass windows. "I definitely recommend a visit if you’re in Spain, we were all in awe," Cookie added.

The carousel showed Magic and Cookie embracing one another while sitting outside, a group snap inside of the cathedral, and videos and photos of the landmark's interior as they explored.

In a post from Friday, July 5, the athlete gave insight into how he spent the Fourth of July holiday while traveling. “A great day celebrating the Fourth of July with our friends overseas," he wrote in a caption.

In the first photo of the post, the Johnsons were smiling as they posed with the Palmers and Jacksons, all of whom were dressed for the holiday. The inside of the boat was adorned with red, white and blue balloons, along with other themed decor.

The crew chimed in on the celebration as Magic posted a video of them dancing with American flags as the friend group cheered along. The festivities also included a donut wall with themed desserts.

That same day, Magic shared a video of himself having a "magical start" to his morning by "cutting loose" on a jet ski. At the start of the clip, he raises his hand to wave at the camera.

The group kicked off their summer vacation on July 1 with the basketball player announcing their trip via an Instagram post with the caption: "We are officially on vacation!! 😁 Hanging out with our great friends John and Vicki Palmer and Sam and LaTanya Jackson at Boca Grande in Barcelona, Spain! The food was *chef’s kiss*."

The following day, Magic shared videos to his Instagram Stories of their views of the Spanish island of Ibiza from the yacht.

While visiting the Mediterranean destination, the group dressed up to dine at the "farm-to-table" Can Palau De Dalt restaurant, located in the Casa Maca Hotel.

In the same post, Magic shared a photo of the six of them standing on a staircase on the boat with a view of its grand entrance.

Last year, the Johnsons had their luxurious six-week vacation on the same yacht – identified as the Phoenix 2 superyacht. They began their journey in Antibes, France before making their way around the Mediterranean including stops in Portofino, Capriccioli, Capri, Positano, Nerano and Sicily in Italy; the Corinth Canal, Mykonos, Oia, Kefalonia, Kalami and Santorini in Greece; Montenegro; and Dubrovnik, Croatia.
