Our tour lasted 1h30 to capo rosso, and it was really awesome, with extraordinary views and landscapes. The explanations given by our captivating and very relaxed captain were very interesting. After 3 days in Porto It gave us a new and unforgettable perspective on Porto bay. A MUST DO !

We took the long tour (3h30) with Alpana as many guide books where highlighting this tour as one of the most exciting in corsica. We have been very lucky in getting a skipper with outstanding sailing skills and great knowledge of the region. Explanations and stories throughout the tour were very interesting, clear and fun. We highly recommend Alpana if... More

We loved our afternoon with Alpana tours, reallg informative, the Coast is stunning. The guy in charge was really informative and toom time to translate into English. Highly recommended, take a jacket even if it is warm, it gets windy on the boat.

This tour was even better than we expected. Instead of riding in one of the big boats for 140€ for our family of four, we splurged on one of the smaller boats, which don't offer discounts for children, so 220€ for our family. Ouch! But this boat tour was fantastic and well worth the expense in my opinion. We loved... More

We loved the fact that the boat was small enough to get into all the amazing caves and creeks, but big enough that we were not buffeted about by the waves when crossing the golfe. Our captain gave a very clear and knowledgeable commentary on the history, geography, and wildlife (in French). We were pleased not to have to stop... More

We took the 3.5 hr trip starting at 5.30 pm. Departure perfectly on time, taking us first to the Calanches, then to the Capo Rosso where we stopped for a shortt swim/snorkeling, then across the bay to Girolata and Scandola. We liked very much this trip and the organising company: 1. The long trip allows to see all highlights. Each... More

I went on the tour with my sister and my mum after reading the reviews here and everything was just so great!! We saw the extraordinary rock formations of the calanches and scandola up close and I mean up CLOSE! The boat even goes in a few coves by the cliffs since it's a small (but a comfy) one. The...

I cannot imagine that there is a better way, a better boat or a better captain for a Grand Tour of the Gulf of Porto. The boat was small (only 12 pax.), fast and comfortable. Renee, the captain, gave a very good overview of the geology, marine biology and some history - plus some humorous description of the many strange... More
