Full description

Discover the most beautiful landscapes of western Corsica: Calanques de Piana, Capo Rosso, Girolata, and to finish in style: the visit of the sublime Scandola Nature Reserve.

On this almost inaccessible peninsula, the rocks forged by water and wind have taken on intriguing, almost supernatural shapes, reinforced by the red tone of the cliffs.

Your sea trip begins in Ajaccio accompanied by your captain. Well settled in your boat, enjoy the sumptuous landscapes during this boat tour punctuated by the comments of your captain. History of the region, anecdotes, legends and other explanations on the surrounding flora and fauna as well as on the geology.

Discover the highlights of western Corsica by going first to the famous Calanques de Piana, a place listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Scandola Nature Reserve is home to many species of protected plants and birds such as golden eagles, peregrine falcons and the iconic osprey. It's hard to resist the urge to discover this wild and unspoiled nature, aspiring to rock structures in the caldera, a remnant of very old volcanic eruptions or undulating under pure, crystalline water.

The Scandola reserve is a natural marvel both maritime and land listed, of course, in the heritage of Unesco. Here, nature has dictated its law, giving the rocks their specific shape and letting the flora flourish freely.

The fauna is not left out in the Scandola reserve. As ospreys spread their wings in search of their next prey, gulls squirm and squawk. At sea, groupers, red mullets, and other moray eels form an incessant ballet, an intriguing and captivating spectacle that your skipper will be delighted to introduce you to. Your sea trip to visit the Scandola Reserve by boat and the must-see places in western Corsica Embark on board and head to Scandola for a magical ride. Your Captain will share with you his love for Corsica and the nature reserve of Scandola, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A fantastic day, from start to finish everything was perfect. A fabulous place, guided and commented by baptiste, a skipper who loves his job and his island, an exceptional moment! Smaller tasting of rosé and very pleasant Corsican charcuterie. The boat is simply exceptional compared to other companies. Don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed!!
