What people are saying about La Maddalena Archipelago National Park

Very good tour of La Maddalena, Budelli, Spargi and Santa Maria. Food was great on board (lunch was only an extra €8-10, and drinks were cheaper than in the town), staff were friendly and helpful. There was a 10-15 min swim stop (off the boat) and 2 beach stops (1.5 - 2 hours each). Only criticism is a common one, most of the tours stop at the same beaches so they get very busy, but it's the cheapest way to see them, and they are definitely worth visiting! It's a little more expensive than some other tours but the boat was only half full so.. 100% worth it!

Punctuality, perfect organization, perfect stopovers, well prepared pasta with tomato sauce. I recommend only a more detailed information on the meeting point for the departure.

I had a wonderful tour! ⛵️ The staff were very friendly and they looked after us! The beaches were amazing and I enjoyed the swimming a lot! I highly recommended!

The start was late, and the dispatcher’s english was not understandable well. Everything else was perfect
