Full description

Start your trip at Palau or La Maddalena port, where the crew will meet you and make sure you get comfortable on board. Choose from a variety of drinks and food available for purchase as you enjoy the sea breeze.

Take a swim during the first stop at Santa Maria island, known for its turquoise waters. Stop at Budelli to lie on the sand or swim in the natural pools of Spiaggia del Cavaliere, protected from currents and perfect for a relaxing swim.

Once back to the boat, admire the Spiaggia Rosa and its unique pink sand. Visit Spargi to discover its white sandy beaches, rocky coasts, and turquoise waters. Go snorkeling in calm waters or lounge on the beach of Cala Granara. Along the way, see the Island of Santo Stefano, Caprera, and the Bear Rock of Palau from the boat. Listen to a multilingual explanation from your expert guide about the history of the archipelago. If you departed from Palau, have 1 hour of free time to shop for souvenirs or Vermentino wine in traditional Sardinian shops. Take a walk around the charming town. Admire the port of Cala Gavetta and the picturesque church of Santa Maria Maddalena before you get dropped off at Palau. If your journey started at La Maddalena, end your trip here.

The tour of the archipelago was very good. We bathed in the sea far from the beach and then we had several stops to enjoy the extraordinary beaches as well as the stop at Isla Magdalena to take a walk through its beautiful streets. We did not try the food on the boat because we brought our own sandwiches but the bar is very good with all kinds of drinks. Now gentlemen of Get Your Guide. In the purchase confirmation email they told us that in front of the seaport a person with a sign etc etc would pick us up. Well, there was no one there to pick us up. Thanks to me approaching the seaport and asking and they told me that this was the ship. I asked them how there was no one to tell us in front of it and they told us that the boat had a GelYouGuide sign next to it, but come on, the sign was posted so that it could be seen from the sea. In short, the reception to tell us which boat was VERY BAD. There was no one there to point us out and we didn't miss the tour of a thousand

Pleasant crew. Well organized with fixed seating, bathing in the sea from the boat, food service etc. Food and drink could be bought on board at reasonable prices. Got to see several lovely places. Strand Cavaliere (Budelli stop) was a real highlight. We were very pleased with the trip. Many thanks to the crew.

Very nice and well organized tour, the places visited are wonderful and you have the right time to enjoy them. Bravo, professional and very kind crew. Nice dive from the boat, in crystal clear water. Very good guide. Honest the prices of water and food on board, we got the pasta which was good. I do not give 5 stars only for seats that are a little narrow compared to the tables, but which do not make us regret the choice. Recommended.
