Great boat trip, the guide took the time for spontaneous activities such as dolphin and sperm whale sightings. For us personally, the journey (about 5 hours in total) was too long, but that is individual. Unfortunately, the guide only speaks French, but what I understood was interesting and told with humor.

It was great ! Small error from the site, our reservation was at 2:15 p.m. on 08/09 for a half-day, departing from Sagone; In order to be sure of the location of the meeting point, we go at 9:45 am the same day for confirmation. Apart from the lady at the counter, tells us that this same reservation is for the next day. Being no longer there on 09/09, the lady tells us to find the boat in Cargese for a day trip. The crew of the boat as well as the vacationers waited for us and everything went perfectly. We thank the lady as much as the crew of the boat!

Wonderful day ! Loris masters his boat to perfection, which allowed us to enter the rifts. Big surprise, we were able to enjoy a swim, which was not specified in the description, a treat !! Rodolphe is pleasant, professional in safety before swimming and tells the story and legend of the ballad very well. In short, this outing was a very pleasant surprise.
