Beautiful experience. Captain Antonio was very good, he told us the history of the place and showed us unique cliffs. On board there was also a marine biologist Matteo he explained in a very simple way the habits of some species of fish present in Sardinia. Together they created a beautiful harmony on board making us have fun. Finally with great enthusiasm we saw and followed the dolphins for about 1 hour. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IT IS REALLY WORTH IT !!

Great experience worth every penny! We went with a 10 man boat and were lucky to see dolphins. There were so many we couldn't count. Doe guides are very knowledgeable about the dolphins and the area and were very careful when navigating the boat close to the dolphins. Absolute highlight! Snorkeling and swimming was great too, there was a little something to drink and a snack on board. We would do it again in a heartbeat! Also very suitable for families!

Wonderful excursion for 3.5 hours. We were lucky enough to spot a group of 4 dolphins super close to the boat. Sufficient distance was maintained from the obviously playing animals. In addition, a guided snorkeling tour and swimming in two beautiful bays - clear recommendation, thanks for a great morning!
