What people are saying about Province of Sassari

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.

If you hesitate to do it, do it. If you don't have a snorkel, don't worry, the two stops for bathing are 10 and unless you want to see stones, a hedgehog and sand, don't go loaded. Enjoy them. Crew, animation, perfect bar service and top boat.

A bit of a wait at the beginning but due to passengers who fall asleep and are not on time, we did a beautiful tour of beautiful beaches and top 55 staff per person but it is worth more

Great Everything !! Especially long enough that they leave you at each site to take a break

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