What people are saying about La Maddalena

Great tour, beyond mass tourism. A maximum of 8 people are taken along, so the sailing boat offers a lot of space. The support was warm and familiar, communication was possible in English, German and Italian. The route can be customized to avoid the crowds of boats, especially in high season. The captain has 35 years of experience and uses this for the benefit of the guests. A dream landscape, crystal clear water, various bathing stops and beaches. Starters antipasti and pizza, the main course is cooked by the captain himself. Everything is local and included in the price, including the drinks! The wine was delicious ;-) Certainly a bit more expensive compared to other tours, but it's definitely worth it!!!

Sailing trip for a day in the islands around Maddalena with Marco, Massimo and Chiara. A day out of time, between admiring the landscapes, swimming, diving, laughing, sharing a local meal carefully prepared by Captain Marco. We have a superb day, all the more pleasant in the off season and in small groups! Grazie Mile

Overall excellent day. Very friendly hosts, delicious lunch and drinks. Beautiful locations and small group of people on board.
