From Palau: La Maddalena Full-Day Archipelago Catamaran Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 1 day
The tour departs from Palau harbor in the morning where you board your boat for the day and set sail onto the crystal clear waters of Sardinia. Admire the breathtaking panoramic views of the island as you travel along the coast, watching out for Porto Raphael and its famous villas along the way. Pass by the beautiful Punta Sardinia lighthouse before arriving at the first stop of the day, the island of Spargi. As the boat pulls into the bay of the island, marvel at your tranquil and uninhabited surroundings, unlike any other place on Earth. Enjoy some time to swim in the crystal clear waters at Cala Soraya, named by Princess Soraya in the 60s, or visit the bay just next to it, Cala Corsara. After your swim, regain some energy with a refreshing drink. Later, the captain will decide the next island to visit, dependent on the weather and the tide. Arrive at either Razzoli, Santa Maria, o...
The tour started with the organizer telling us that we we paid to rent the boat and not for an organized tour, so we had to “vote a skipper and a group leader following their recommendation” - clearly a scam to avoid any responsibility in case anything happened and not what we expected for this price. Anyway after this bad start the tour was actually very nice, we saw some astonishing places and the 2 guides were very friendly. I’d recommend the tour and the guys but definitely not the agency organizing the tour.
Set sail for a dolphin watching boat trip from Moys Marina in Olbia Yacting Service, a 5-star port with ample free parking in front of the meeting point. Climb aboard a comfortable, latest-generation inflatable boat, an 8.50-meter 2Bar with a 250 horsepower Honda engine, equipped with every comfort. Enjoy an unparalleled experience with a small group of no more than 10 people. Take an adventurous excursion in the splendid emerald sea of Sardinia, near Figarolo Island and enjoy the view aboard a new small-group motorboat. Sail in search for a pod of wild bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat where the sighting probability is of approximately 80%.

This excursion is fun and relaxing, suitable for everyone, and a great ...
We had a great time with Antonio. He was very considerate with the kids and took great care of our group. We managed to see a dolphin and had a great snorkeling experience.
Live a memorable day while having fun and enjoying nature on a quad adventure under the guidance of an expert tour-escort. Cross pristine beaches and dirt paths, and admire breathtaking views onboard your quad. Upon arrival, you'll be given full instruction on handling the quad and all safety equipment will be provided. First, take a short trip to establish your confidence and then go on an amazing journey. Enjoy an authentic, exciting, and dynamic off-road experience on the powerful quads for 2 or 3 hours, depending on the option you choose. Drive through nature's twists and turns, among the vegetation and rocks modeled by time, and discover rare species and unique itineraries. Your local guide is happy to make the tour as personal as possible. He will assist you with his expertise and share interesting anecdotes for you before returning you back to the base camp.
We had a wonderful time the place is spectacular and the guide very helpful and knowledged.
On arrival, you'll be directed to your table in the tasting room by your guide. Your table will already be set with 5 different glasses and a small tray containing your appetizers to pair with the wines during the guided tasting. Your guide will start by sharing information about the farm history, the local area, and the culture, followed by the guided tasting of each wine. You'll learn about the variety of grapes, perfume, taste, and suggested food pairings for each wine. The experience ends with a proof of a top quality extra-virgin olive oil prepared by traditional cold pressing techniques and served with traditional bread. At the end you'll have the opportunity to purchase some of the products you've tried to take home with you. After the tasting, take a nice walk through the vineyard on your own to take some pictures.
The farm is close to Alghero (we went by bike from the centre and it took 30 minutes). It really worth it to see a Sardinian style farm and vineyard, olive plantation. The host was incredibly friendly and everything what she said was interesting. The wines are tasteful and uniqe, the cheese and the olive oil also. So if you would like to taste something that is original and really Sardinian than you should visit this farm! I hope we will have the chance to go back.
After pick-up from the meeting point in Olbia, you'll head for Cannigione where you'll board your boat to explore the La Maddalena Archipelago. You'll travel by the picturesque islands of Caprera and Santo Stefano on your way to the island of Maddalena. You can use your hour of free time in La Maddalena to visit the historic centre, the Palazzo Comunale, the Naval Museum, or the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art. Back on the boat, you will continue on to the islands of Spargi and Santa Maria, where you'll also have an hour to enjoy some swimming in the magnificent crystal clear waters, snorkelling, or relaxing and sunbathing on the beach. At lunchtime, the crew will serve tomato pasta on board the boat. Then, you'll continue along a scenic route past the Manto della Madonna, a stretch of sea with shallow waters. Finally travel back along the coast of Sardegna past the villages of Punta S...

ivo is a very nice, funny and informed tour guide, who will show you the nice stuff in Cagliari. We were energised by the tour.
Visit Sardinia's capital city, Sinna, a small town located near Cagliari where you can still see the typical Campidanese-style houses in its historical center. In one of these houses, under the supervision of the skilful hands of a local woman, your host, you will learn how to make different types of local and national traditional pasta. Each pasta you make will be characterized with different colors and flavors: malloreddus (Sardinian gnocchi), culugiones (a special kind of ravioli) as well as ordinary ravioli and tagliatelle. Later, cook pasta with your host and eat together, accompanying your meal with a lovely local wine.
I highly recommend you book this experience, it is amazing! Isabella and Valerio are very kind and funny people. They picked us up and drove us to a beautiful house were we took the pasta making class. Every step was explained very well and they were very supportive and encouraging in their teaching methods, which was great because I am a far from natural cook :-) After the class we enjoyed some delicious snacks, drinks and our self-made pasta in their lovely garden.
Learn to prepare typical Sardinian dishes during this home-cooking class. Make your way to a beautiful farmhouse in the countryside outside Alghero, where you’ll be welcomed by your friendly hosts. Immerse yourself in regional food culture as you’re introduced to gourmet products and locally-grown ingredients. Roll up your sleeves and start cooking, learning to make dishes like bruschetta and vegetable fritters. After the first course of gnocchi with lamb ragu, prepare a plate of scallops and roasted potatoes. Finally, whip up something to satisfy your sweet tooth with a soft cheese-based dessert flavored with a hint of orange. At the end of the class, gather around the table to feast on the fruits of your labor. Wash every bite down with fine Sardinian wines. Bring your meal and the experience to a close with a tasting of homemade mirto, a liqueur flavored with myrtle, and tangy lim...
Had a great time learning how to make different pasta and eating it too ready to make it back home now
Glide through the history of Cagliari, Sardinia’s bustling capital, on an easy 2.5-hour tour by self-balancing Segway. Following a brief training session to get you up to speed on how to handle the easy-to-operate vehicles, your guide will lead you down ancient streets and through lovely parks, while a fascinating history unfolds via the complimentary audio guide with earphone set. Much more fun than a walking tour, and more eco-friendly than driving, the Segway tour visits major attractions such as the Roman Amphitheatre on the hill of Buoncammino, where gladiatorial combats and executions were once held. Pass the 13th-century Cathedral of Santa Maria, and marvel at the Romanesque and Gothic façades concealing precious objects of great religious significance. Admire the monumental Bastion of San Remy, built by the Spanish between 1897 and 1903. And continue to Elephant Tower, the seco...
Lidia was a truly excellent guide whilst keeping an eye on our safety at all times. We got to see areas of the city that we would never have found on our own. It was a great experience
Join an unforgettable excursion to discover the wine and wineries of Cagliari, two important elements of the Sardinian identity since the first centuries of its history. The role of the ancient plant is deep-rooted in the culture of this land thanks to the wide range of grape varieties: Cannonau, Bovale, Carignano, Monica, Nuragus, Vermentino, Nasco, Vernaccia, Moscato, and Malvasia, to name a few. This tour will allow you to live a first-hand experience immersed in the vineyards and the wineries of the area, where you will learn the peculiarities of the Sardinian wine grapes. The tour includes a visit to a traditional winery: surrounded by sweet hills and rural landscapes, you will discover the different production stages, the kinds of the grapes, the land and the people who dedicate their time to the grape growing with great passion. The visit to the winery is only the first step. Ne...
The guide was very friendly and easy going. The farm was High situated with the most fantastic view. The farmer gave us a warm welcome and told us everything we wanted to know about wine and beyond. We enjoyed the tour and the company.

Very nice crew who shared their knowledge about history and nature of the places we passed. The tour was flexible and we sailed to places the group wanted to see. Since we had very good wind conditions, we could sail most of the time. The boat was fully booked, but there was enough space for everybody. Nice lunch including fruit in the afternoon (remember, it's a boat and not a restaurant ;-)) and drinks. All in all a wonderful day and highly recommended!
It was an awesome day. Irene is a wonderful woman. I would love to meet her again. She thought us how to make a traditional Sardinian pasta and then we ate a wonderful, delicious meal. Irene was not only a great teacher, but also wonderful home keeper, funny and very warmhearted woman. We also have met many interesting and lovely people all over the world. I send you all Baccio & Abbraccio ❤️ thanks for an amazing time together
There were 4 of us: me, my wife and two children aged 9 and 8. Punctual departures and immediately towards Golfo Aranci to find dolphins, thanks to the skill of Antonio seen several times, then great baths in fantastic coves with lots of refreshments. Antonio the number one, besides being very nice is very professional, I highly recommend it, TOP excursion
