Full description

Among the many possibilities the Ligurian Sea offers is the chance to spot dolphins or minke whales. Discover the best of the marine fauna that characterises this protected area with our motorboat excursion, departing from Savona.

In the 'Cetacean Sanctuary', you will have numerous opportunities to spot cetaceans in their natural habitat. The Pelagos Sanctuary, established in 1991, stretches from the French coast to the north of Sardinia to Tuscany. It is a protected marine area in the Mediterranean Sea where there is a massive concentration of cetaceans, thanks mainly to the abundance of food.

Accompanied by a naturalist guide, you can admire many different species and learn more about their behaviour and habits. Ready to take unforgettable photos? We are waiting for you.

What we will do

The meeting is in Savona, at the time selected during the booking process. The crew will welcome us and take us aboard a motor vessel equipped with every comfort.

Once everyone is on board, we will set off for the famous Pelagos Sanctuary, also known as the 'Cetacean Sanctuary', a vast area where various marine species live. We will sail through these waters in search of cetaceans. The itinerary varies from time to time: depending on sightings, we may head for Noli or Spotorno.

During the mini-cruise we will discover the best of the local fauna in the company of an expert naturalist guide. If we are lucky, we will be able to admire cetaceans such as the common dolphin, fin whale, sperm whale, orca, and much more.

After about four hours we will return to the port of departure.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is suitable for everyone, with no age limit. Children under 3 years participate free of charge.
