Full description

Did you see it too? Yes, it really is a minke whale!

That's what you might exclaim when you take part in our snorkelling excursion on the Island of Elba: in the company of a guide, you will set sail from Marciana Marina for the most scenic natural settings on the coast inhabited by a rich marine fauna.

A3-hour experience in search of octopuses, starfish and dolphins!

What we will do

The appointment is at the selected time at the meeting point in Marciana Marina (LI). We will be welcomed by the guide who will accompany us on this snorkelling adventure!

Once all participants have gathered and after anintroduction to the experience, the preparation of equipment and possible dressing down will follow. This first moment will last about 15-30 minutes.

We will then walk to the embarkation point, to board the boat that will take us to the best natural setting selected according to the weather conditions of the day. We may sail to Punta della Madonna, Zanca Beach, Punta del Nasuto or the Scoglietto di Portoferraio; in any case, we will be inside the International Cetacean Sanctuary, inhabited by dolphins and fin whales as well as bream, damselfish, sole, octopus and starfish! There will be 1 free snorkelling stop of at least 30 minutes; the guide will remain on board to provide any support.

We will then return to the meeting point where a debriefing will take place to tell us what we have learnt and seen on this snorkelling adventure. The experience will last a total of 3 hours.
