Stop on Santa Maria Island home to about 20 seasonal residents. Enjoy sunbathing and swimming in crystal clear waters. Visit the walkway at the Port of Our Lady, so named because it is considered a safe landing in almost any wind. Marvel at the blue of this stretch of sea, unspoiled and clear down to the shallow seabed.

Stop at the beach at Cala Corsara on Spargi Island, and admire the beauty of the views of the north coast of Sardinia on the return voyage, including Punta Falcone, Marmorata with its Isolotto dei Gabbiani, the forts of Batteria Ferrero, and the exciting entrance to the fjord of Santa Teresa di Gallura

Just an all-around amazig experience! The places we stopped to swim/snorkel were crystal clear. We have been to a lot of beaches all over the world but never one with water so spectacular. The whole journey was beautiful and laid back. On top of that, the crew was very friendly and attentive to the passengers. They even went above and beyond the call of duty for us. We left our bag on La Maddalena. On our way back to Cannigione, crew members called the restaurant where we left the bag and arranged to collect it for us later that evening. Then they organized to deliver it to us the next morning when the boat docked at our port again. They were amazing (special thanks to Eleonora and the other crew member--who I didn't get her name)!

The experience at sea was very positive. Likewise, the management of the reservation, immediately confirmed and followed up with care. All the info and reminders arrive via email. Having needed a telephone contact, I was granted Cinderella in the request.

MAGIC, MAGNIFICENT, we are amazed, the staff is top, professional, and the discovery of fantastic places leaves us speechless, the service is well worth the price paid
