Full description

Visit the famous islands of Santa Maria, Spargi, and La Maddalena Archipelago on a boat tour from Olbia. See the Palazzo Comunale, the Naval Museum, and more before you snorkel, and swim in the Italian waters. Enjoy a local lunch served on board before continuing to the coast of Sardegna.

From the meeting point in Olbia, head to Cannigione to board a boat and explore the La Maddalena Archipelago. Travel by the picturesque islands of Caprera and Santo Stefano on your way to the island of Maddalena.

Next, enjoy an hour of free time in La Maddalena. Visit the historic center, the Palazzo Comunale, the Naval Museum, or the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art before re-boarding the boat.

Continue to the islands of Spargi and Santa Maria. Dock, and try swimming in the magnificent crystal clear waters, snorkeling, or relaxing and sunbathing on the beach. At lunchtime, savor tomato pasta on board served by the crew.

Then, you'll continue along a scenic route past the Manto della Madonna, a stretch of sea with shallow waters before traveling back along the coast of Sardegna past local villages.

Glide past Punta Sardegna, Porto Raphael, Palau, and Capo d'Orso on the way back. Take the minivan back to Olbia once you dock.

Upplevelsen var toppen förutom starten, det saknades info om vilken sorts guidad tur som avsågs, vi trodde det var en guide på båten i form av en person, guiden vi fick var en engelsk inläst röst och den gick bitvis inte att höra i båten. Men i övrigt var den kanon, personalen var supertrevlig och hjälpsam, möjlighet att handla snacks fanns på båten. Upplevelserna där vi stannade till för utsikt och ilandstigning var overkligt vackra!

Dear, Today is our last holiday day in beautiful Olbia and tomorrow we leave for Rome. Yesterday, Wednesday, September 8, is a day that I will remember for a long time. We were blessed with La Maddalena archipelago: a boat trip! Before booking, I had read the reviews here that were not positive. But, because we wanted to experience it in our own way, we booked it anyway, looking at the weather conditions, it was 27 degrees and no rain was expected. And, I'll tell you! It's unbelievably beautiful! Charge your phone battery well and bring an extra charging bank if you can because you won't stop filming and photographing. With such weather, it is better to put on your swimming trunks before you get on the bus. Enjoy the trip!
