What people are saying about La Maddalena Archipelago National Park

We had a nice and relaxed day. There was a snack shortly after we left (sausage, cheese, grapes and crackers). Wine and water were available for drinking throughout the day. The first stop for snorkeling was just average. A big school of fish and nothing special. The second stop was at a beautiful beach, where we stayed for about 30-45 minutes. Then there was spaghetti. Third, we stopped in a beautiful area with great rock formations and turquoise water. If you wanted, you could snorkel again (unfortunately there were some jellyfish on the day). We still enjoyed pastries and coffee. We were back in the harbor around 4:30 p.m. Our guides Pascal and Mario did their job very well and took great care of us.

Great tour! We had so much fun on the boat with our small group (only 7 of us) and our skippers Mario and Pasquale. We stopped at two places around Spargi to swim and have a snack and lunch. After we drove past Spiaggia Rosa (pink beach) and stopped again to swim in Piscine di Budelli. The water was amazing. Our time on the boat was very relaxed. 10/10 would recommend this tour.

The guides were friendly and accommodating, the group was super fun, we never felt rushed when doing stops at the different islands and we also had enough food and drinks. It was a really great tour, we highly recommend it! :)

Was a great day out on the big cat. Good snacks and freshly cooked spaghetti, The guys knew where they were taking us and where we’d be safe from Jelly fish also! Had a great day!
