About
Live a day as a researcher with the scientists of MareTerra NGO. All your curiosities about dolphins will be satisfied. Observe the researchers as they collect scientific data to study the bottlenose dolphin population of the Gulf of Alghero. Discover the stories of some of the most famous dolphins like Suzeo, Taz or Shark Junior. During snorkelling, you'll have a guide who will take you to discover underwater life. On board, we'll tell you some curiosities about what we have seen. You will never be alone! Our excursions are inspired by the principles of ecotourism and sustainability: - Latest generation boat engines reduce fuel consumption and reduce the emission of noise underwater. - HQWW certification (High Quality Whale Watching) for whale watching operators complying with the Code of Good Conduct. This serves to reduce and minimize the disturbance of cetaceans. - Environmental education on board. - By joining Progetto Natura, you can support MareTerra NGO and its scientific research and conservation projects.

Dreams came true for me on this tour. Fabio gives a perfect explanation of what they do and about the dolphins, scientific but not boring. This is an animal friendly way to see dolphins. You feel the love for the animals the whole trip. Francesco takes pictures and they send them later if you leave your email. Definitely recommend! Big thanks to Fabio & Francesco.

The crew were really experienced. Tour began with some general information on Progetto Natura and dolphins. After about an hour found two dolphins which we followed for some time. Because the dolphins were really shy, we could not really see them well so we left to find some more dolphinsa. However, after we had reached our goal and saw dolphins, it really seemed like the crew gave up on looking for more. In the end we got some more information on dolphins and saw the coastline from the boat.

Hi Meri, thanks for the time you took to leave the review. Please, remember that we have two boats and there are always people looking for dolphins. So that was maybe your impression but even when it seems to you we are doing different, our eyes are catching any possible movement (we are really experienced as you wrote). In the end, I'm happy you observed the real-life of the dolphins. It was a good chance. We hope to welcome you again on board, Fabio, Francesco and Gabriella

We didn’t see dolphins till the last moments of the tour, and it was so worth the wait, obviously. The guides were extremely respectful of the wild life (IE. Not darting towards them, following too closely etc.) and you could tell they were passionate about them. 100% worth every penny! P.s. future travellers, make sure you bring warm clothing to layer up!

Didn't get to see any dolphins but still a great trip. Fabio and his team are very friendly and infomative. Clearly passionate about what they do and not driven by money. Will be back to see a dolphin!

Fabio, William and Lawrence were a fantastic Captain and Crew. We received a really interesting presentation about the dolphins in Alghero Bay and ended the trip with 30 minutes guided snorkelling, with Fabio explaining to us what fish and marine life we were viewing on the sea floor. Lovely to be in a small group of just 12.

We want to give special thanks to Fabio for all his communication via whatsapp in helping us to arrange our two tours, change dates etc. He truly went above and beyond, and is incredibly passionate about ecotourism and the environment in general. If there were more people like Fabio in positions of power the world would be a better place.

This trip and this tour company are a rare gem. You'll be richer for the experience. Claire and Mark 25th September.
