What people are saying about Sardinia

It was a unique and wonderful experience! Mr. Antonio showed us places to take your breath away, terrestrial paradises with intense colors, impossible to forget! We left on time and our first stop was the "doctor's beach" where we took our first swim and we reached the shore. We were provided with masks to better admire the bottom and the many fish around us. Then we headed to the flat island for a second swim, got back on board, we had an aperitif (kindly offered) with soft drinks and savory and sweet snacks. As a third stop we sailed under the walls of Tavolara, greeted the statue of the Madonna protector of fishermen and then chose the place to take a last dip and eat the ice cream purchased from one boat to another. Thanks especially to Mr. Antonio for his kindness, shrewdness and sympathy, a really sunny and sociable person.

I can definitely recommend this trip. In approximately 4 hours Antonio, the very friendly tour guide, showed us a variety of snorkeling spots (30 minutes at each spot) and we also got the chance to see 5 dolphins swimming around our boat. We got offered snacks and cold drinks and our guide had a lot of little fun facts and informations around different spots of the island. Worth the money and an awesome experience. Thank you!

The skipper showed us beautiful places and was very friendly, helpful and courteous. At the end he distributed a Sardinian snack (very tasty)! Overall a great afternoon in perfect surroundings! We also saw dolphins, which makes the trip complete!

We spent half a day with Antonio, a very attentive and professional skipper! A great time!

Everything top guide was very nice everything top.
