Dolphin Sighting Tour with Snorkeling

60 reviews
DOLPHIN OBSERVATION<br><br>Dolphin Watching is one of the most requested trips. Dolphins have lived free in Golfo Aranci for a long time and now recognize our boats. It starts from the MARINA DI OLBIA port and we make a tour to the Capo Ceraso and Tavolara islands. We visit the Doctor's Beach and stop for snorkeling. . In our excursions we offer a good aperitif on board based on always fresh Sardinian ingredients. We make numerous stops to enjoy the beautiful sea of Sardinia and take many baths to cool off after sunbathing. Furthermore, on the islet of Figarolo, among the Mediterranean scrub, it is often possible to spot the mouflons that permanently populate the island and, in the period of late summer, the gray herons.<br>We have experience in the field of boat trips for a long time, our excursion is now known as one of the best trips to do in Olbia and Golfo Aranci. We are waiting for you on board. Happy holiday

Plenty of rocks. Nothing special. I wouldn't waste time for it. Better to go on the beach than visit this place.

This is the place fro history lovers. It tells the story of bronze age people living in the times of the ancient farao's and greeks. Looking at the structures still standing after 4000 years this is a high level civilizations that could probaly give some resistance againt the civilazations in their times. Very interesting to see that sardenia as a mostly touristic spot these days has this rich history were they can be proud of! The structures are still standing and with a little fanatasy you can feel the live in the remaining village structures

Incredibly interesting find to visit one of the largest villages in the area, consisting of a complex nuraghe- the so-called palace-surrounded by about 50 circular huts. The main tower, whose dome-shaped ceiling is still intact, dates back to 1100 BC. Very instructive to see and feel the different phase as of tribal organisation and life in the community that once lived here. For me, the highlight was the Capanna delle Riunioni, the reunion hut, where political debates and gatherings of magical -religious cults were held

We visited Nuraghe di Palmavera whilst staying in Alghero. It was an interesting site although certain sections of it were cordoned off as there were guys doing rebuilding works. This is where my problem comes in. What do you do with sites such as this? Do you leave them as a ruin or do you rebuild most of it to show people what it looked like when it was in use? I confess to not knowing the answer but I do hope that they don't rebuild it completely as I feel that this would lose some of the effect.

Dear visitor, thank you very much for your deeply interesting review. Your doubts are legitimate and it is a difficult question to answer but a very smart insight. The excavation and restoration works are not up to us, but we are sure that they will not rebuild it as it was originally. Thanks again for your feedback. Best regards.

We enjoyed a short walk around these ruins on a sunny afternoon. Tied in with the Necropoli (which you can buy tickets for together at a discounted price) it made for an enjoyable short trip out. Unfortunately whilst we were there there was a lot of scaffolding/fences in place - though we are sure this is crucial to the upkeep of the ruins. This hardly hindered the experience though as we were still able to access 95% of the site. Small bar on site with gift shop, limited parking, probably 6 cars maximum.

Dear visitor, thanks for reviewing us. Although the site is under restoration works, visitors can see all the interesting things to be seen here, but they can also see workers as they are resembling some rocks on the nuraghe or excavating and discovering new things. Regards
