Full description

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.

It was a great experience! The team was very nice, and consideration was also given to more anxious participants. A guide came into the water at both stops, you snorkeled as a group, so you always felt safe. There were no explanations about flora/fauna, which we didn't find bad, it was so great. Water and crackers were served. We were the only ones there 20 minutes before the start, we started half an hour after the official start. You can't arrive there with your German punctuality. All in all we would recommend it and do it again.

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.
