Dolphin Sighting Tour with Snorkeling

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

We had an amazing visit today to the mining museum, carbonia has a rich- quite sombre history and this museum is the perfect place to explore this. Extensive guided tour of some of the underground mines spoken in very impressive English by our lovely guide. Would return, its brilliant!

This visit is not any interesting about mining, but also how this, the only coalmine in Italy, played its part during the Mussolini years. Built in a matter of months due to sanctions against the fascist government and the need for power. It employed a staggering 18,000 workers, in slavery conditions. Housing was built on wasteland to form the town Carbonia. It is worth pre-booking so that you get the guided tour at the time you want for your language. I did the English tour and the guide’s language skills were excellent. I have done a number of different mine visits in different countries, but the link with politics here is an added bonus and makes it very interesting.

We visited a hot day in July. Not easy to find. Look fot the round yellow building. Great information and the tour was good. Took a little more than 1 hour. Amazing how tough work they were doing at that time!

I went with my partner, having read the reviews but they do not do it complete justice. Apart from the mining aspect, there is a lot of concise info on the social housing element of Carbonia and the facist history on the bi lingual panels with photographs. If the tour is not immediate, there is a cafe, clean toilets and you have time to wander and absorb the exhibits. Our guide, an extraordinary enthusiastic woman, Lauradana (apologies for spelling) spoke fabulous English, we were the only two amongst a group of Italians, but she ensured we were given all the details. The tour underground is a bit eerie with low lightining, but not claustrophobic and it is flat, although one has to duck ones head occasionally. Go, it is close to Iglesias and worth the 8 euros for an interesting few hours. The tour is around 40 m, and spend the rest of the time is at ease reading extraordinary stories of workers and life under tough conditions.
