Summer tour: Dolphin watching and Snorkeling

Snorkeling guidato con i biologi di Progetto Natura

This tour is dedicated to the search for dolphins. Thanks to the presence on board of the scientist of MareTerra NGO, our chance of spotting dolphins is 80%, a very high probability for such elusive animals.

During the navigation, we will tell you all the curiosities about the life of these animals. You'll know about the scientific discoveries about the local dolphin population that researchers have been following since 2012. Having sighted the dolphins, we will approach respecting the Code of Conduct HQWW® (High Quality Whale Watching) we adopted to minimise the risk of any disturbance due to our presence. During the sighting, we will explain the behaviour of the dolphins. You will be able to listen to the sounds they use to communicate, thanks to the recordings made by the scientists of MareTerra NGO. Thanks to the photo-identification technique, we could recognize dolphins by their dorsal fin and tell you their names, how old they are and other curiosities about their life.

During the excursion, you will admire one of the most beautiful coasts of Sardinia, within the crystalline waters of the Marine Protected Area Capo Caccia - Isola Piana. After these emotions, relax by swimming in clear and transparent water and discover the magnificent underwater world and its inhabitants. Do not have much experience with snorkelling? Our guides will accompany you and will give you guidance in the water. Enjoy your safe snorkelling experience!

NB - To participate in the snorkelling, you need to feel comfortable swimming in water 4 meters deep.
