- Skip the line
- Duration options: 3 - 4.5 hours
Discover the Scandola Nature Reserve and visit the charming village of Girolata as you embark on a boat tour off Porto on the coast of Corsica. Sail in silence on the waters of the reserve on an eco-friendly hybrid boat and enjoy access to prime seating thanks to priority boarding. Meet the ship’s friendly crew who will assist you with the boarding process and then set off to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Nature Reserve, which is only accessible by sea and subject to strict protection. See coastal caves and observe diverse marine life and seabirds, such as ospreys and peregrine falcons, from a respectable distance so as not to disturb the natural environment. Learn about the reserve’s ecology through live French commentary throughout the tour. Stop for 30 minutes in the remote and quaint coastal village of Girolata, surrounded by the sea and only accessible by boat. Walk around...
Très bonne expérience. À cause d’un temps, notre sortie a été décalée d’un jour, mais nous ne l’avons pas regretté. Les paysages sont vraiment fantastiques et les commentaires diffusés tout au long du parcours sont très judicieux et plein d’humour.

The tour was interesting, the crew was pleasant and the captain did precise manoeuvres to let people on all sides of the boat to enjoy the views. Nevertheless the boat never ran with electric motors. The stop at Girolata is not worth it, it's just a touristic trap. The explanations were not always hearable, but well, it's a boat tour. To find the boarding place, it's right at the beginning of the harbour, don't walk to far.
A visit to very beautiful points of view. Comments tinged with humor. Maneuvers so that everyone, whether at the front or at the back of the boat, can observe the area as well as possible and / or take pictures ... In short, even if the weather was not very favorable , we had a great time. We will do it again on occasion.
Boarding was smooth snd quick. Our guide was very informative about the places (geological and historical) but you need to understand French The scenes was very nice and the boat was also nice regarding size and capacity.
amazing, breathtaking views, a paradise for those who are thirsty for the beauty of nature, kind and caring guide with great knowledge of nature and history
The easiest and most complete way to visit the Girolata area with a guide who explains everything about the place (in French in my case).
