The pick up location was around the corner from what is stated on this website, but give the local operator and call to confirm. Our guide was great, he even provided fresh figs. Took us to four swimming spots around the island. Water is stunning and sun was beaming - saw plenty of wildlife. Exactly what we wanted - bring a snorkel.

wonderful experience ❤️ we celebrated a hen party and we had a great time.Thanks to our skipper who despite the windy day managed to take us to beautiful places. We will definitely be back for other excursions too ❤️

Laura was very knowledgeable and designed a tour around our specific requests. She was fluent in the history of Cagliari as well as sites we could visit on our own during our visit.

Our guide was super nice! They made us discover magnificent places which without it would have been impossible to visit!

An excursion to do absolutely, beautiful beaches, fantastic skipper Toto thank you
