Dolphin watching and snorkel in the Gulf of Alghero

Accompanied by expert and passionate biologists here is an incredible experience to live in Alghero, a city with a thousand surprises!

Sea and Nature

In the first part of the tour, for a couple of hours, we search dolphins.
You can participate too by learning the techniques of marine mammal observers.
During the navigation, a briefing will be provided to let you know more about biology and behaviour of dolphins, along with their conservation status.
We will also be able to let you listen to the dolphin sounds recorded by the scientists of MareTerra NGO on board.
Thanks to their presence and studies our chance of spotting dolphins is higher than 80%.
Once we sighted a group of dolphins, we get closer in accord with the International Code of Conduct we adopt to minimise the risk of any disturbance to dolphins and other wildlife.
In this way we can continue observing their natural behaviour. Thanks to the photo-identification technique, we can recognise dolphins by their dorsal fins and we are able to tell you their names, how old they are and their health status.
In the second part of the tour you will admire one of the most beautiful coast of Sardinia, within the boundaries of the Marine Protected Area Capo Caccia - Isola Piana.
 
After all these emotions, relax yourself swimming in clear and transparent water and discover the magnificent underwater world and its inhabitants.
Do not have much experience with snorkeling? Our guides will accompany you and will give you guidance in the water.
In this way you can enjoy your safe snorkeling experience.
On the way back to the port, you will taste an aperitif of cheese and salami of small local producer, accompanied by a chilled glass of Vermentino wine.
 
We know how hard is to take a snapshot of wild dolphins. We want to give you our own professional photos as a souvenir of your experience with us. On board you will receive the instructions to download the photos of your sighting from our web site.
