Full description

Discover what lies beneath the surface of the crystal-clear waters of the Costa Smeralda with a snorkelling tour in the protected marine reserve of La Maddalena and Caprera Island.

Take a boat to the most picturesque spots in the archipelago and dive with mask, fins and snorkel to discover the marvellous seabed of one of the Mediterranean's most popular destinations.

What we will do

We will meet at 8.30 a.m. at the diving centre in Cannigione, in the province of Sassari. After a brief introductory briefing and donning thenecessary equipment, we will board the boat with the instructor and head to the most beautiful spots in the Maddalena marine reserve and the island of Caprera.

We will travel together with the divers on the same boat, and while they dive we will be free to explore the reefs with mask, fins and snorkel. We will dive into the emerald waters of this marine protected area and admire the alternation between the magnificent granite coastline and the white sandy beaches, as well as all the sea creatures that we will be able to observe below the surface of the water.

During our time in the sea, we can alternate between swimming and relaxing in the boat (where we will also have snacks and drinks), and then dive again until the divers resurface. At that point, we will all return to the diving centre together.

The duration of the activity can vary from 3 to 5 hours and is dependent on the diving programme, as is the itinerary. Snorkelers will move independently, with the supervision of the instructors remaining on board the boat.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is at an easy level and is open to everyone, aged 8 and up, with good aquatic skills.
