What people are saying about Chia

Very pleasant excursion The water is transparent, it's magnificent!! The fish were fed in order to observe them underwater. It was fun. Unfortunately no dolphins… the guide told us that the dolphins are in the north of the island and only come out in winter. The water being warm, there were jellyfish. One of the passengers even got bitten. So we shortened the swims.

We had a great trip to Chia. Our driver showed us the hidden gems of the island, and had a lot of knowledge about the area. We got to swim in crystal-clear waters. The trip was amazing! Remember to bring a waterproof bag because the trip can get wet.

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 ❤️

Very nice successful excursion, where we explored the southern part of Sardinia by the sea. It was a great experience

Great boat tour with a really great Sardinian skipper
