Reach the islands by boat and learn the meaning of Sites of Community Interest, or SCIs, that are crucial for the repopulation of maritime flora and fauna. Keep an eye out for the endangered Corsican seagull whose population has been recovering in this region.

Beautiful and memorable experience. We went snorkeling and Ivan and Giuseppe were accompanying us, the guides, very nice and very experienced in the field. It was a relaxing and unique private tour, an indescribable variety of fish with a thousand colors and shapes. We were also able to see starfish. Gorgeous, we will definitely be back next year! We will also try scuba diving. Thank you so much for the beautiful experience, super recommended.

Es war eine tolle Erfahrung! Das Team war sehr nett, auch wurde auf ängstlichere Teilnehmer Rücksicht genommen. Ein Guide ist bei beiden Stops mit ins Wasser gekommen, man ist als Gruppe geschnorchelt, sodass man sich immer sicher gefühlt hat. Erklärungen zu Flora/ Fauna gab es nicht, was wir nicht schlimm fanden, es war auch so toll. Es wurden Wasser und Kräcker gereicht. Wir waren als einzige 20 Minuten vor Beginn dort, gestartet sind wir eine halbe Stunde nach offiziellem Start. Da darf man nicht mit seiner deutschen Pünktlichkeit ankommen. Alles in allem würden wir es empfehlen und wieder machen.
