7 hour boat tour through La Maddalena Archipelago is a very nice experience. You see some really nice beaches, a first stop at the Maddalena island city centre, and you can swim is a natural pool. All this with very nice comments from Alessio. At open sea and during 10 minutes, Alessio also play around with the sea waves to enhance the experience.

The trip was good, due to covid they were not doing the meal offered. No email was received stating that. Or compensation... Bar was still open on the boat for beverages. I was prepared for additional snacks and fruit for our day which came in very handy. The boat was not too crowded but all the locations we went to were populated. A good amount of time spent at each location. Good way to fill in the day and see the surrounding islands

It was an amazing experience !! The only thing we would improve would be a sun sail on deck, then allow for more time in La Maddalena, but one less swim stop, e.g. skip jumping into le Piscine. Otherwise it was just great! We will remember this day forever! Many Thanks!
