Booked trough Dea del Mare (lovely people @ the booking center in Palau). Wonderful sunny day with a lot of exciting moments. Alessandro, the skipper, sailed like on the America's Cup ;-). Definitely it was feeling like gone with the wind - unforgettable. He searched unique places to stay where the water was azure blue. Paolo, the cooker, prepared a delicious meal almost with one hand (he was injured): a small "Aperitivo" with olives, salami, pecorino, tomatoes, mozzarella and a typical bread from the region. Later on we received a yummy pasta salad with white wine followed by a white Mirto as a digestif with some sardinian cookies...Alex, from Brazil, as well from the sailing team, was very attentively to people...he worked really hard and you saw how proud he was to be part of the team. Amazing guy as well. I brought a bottle of my own Vodka (produced especially in Siberia, Russia) with me to make some incredible pics through the archipelago. We stopped not far away from a beach to make a longer brake. We saw as well some people there having a hen party on an other boat. Dancing ladies - funny!!! What happened later on? While making some pics of the bottle hanging between of some ropes my bottle felt in the water. :-/ The depth was around 6m. Since I'm not a good diver Alex, the brazilian guy, and Glenn helped me invain to get back the bottle. After never ending 40 minutes I took my courage in both hands and a deep breath, I dived on the ground of the sea and with a last swim stroke I caught the bottle with my fingertips. When I reached the surface to my surprise I realised that everyone was standing there watching me holding the bottle on my left hand...I felt happiness, astonishment and incredibility surrounding me - it was done!!! The spirit of Siberia - my vodka (called Diamond Ice Noble Vodka) was save and had brought all the people together...Thanks to you for this incredible day!!! Paolo

This one day cruise it was the best way to end fantastic vacation in Sardinia. Great views, wonderful beaches are an obvious part of the expedition but what deserves a special attention is a Merkaba’s crew: Fabiano and his son Ricardo. They both took care of all guests well-being during the whole day. I must say that this kind of atmosphere is something very special. It was also a great day spent with fantastic people from many different countries ( Italy, Spain, Belgium ). What is more – lunch which we have had on the boat was the best lunch we ate during the whole stay in Sardinia – it was delicious!!! Congratulation guys!!! You are fantastic people and great cooks too and it was a great pleasure to spend the last day of holiday with you guys. We hope to get back to Sardinia and to Merkaba for another fantastic cruise!!!

Beautiful 18 meters Beneteau sailing boat well prepared! Early morning departure, great atmosphere in the boat, 4 different groups, 10 people in total + the two skippers! Around 10.00 am we left the port and the cruise started with captain Fabiano telling us some curiosities from the islands and the zone. With the small boat Ricky, his son took us to have a rest in a busy but beautiful beach while captain/cheff fabiano prepared the amazing aperitivo + lunch. After an hour we ate an unforgettable lunch, with tasty fresh food, cold good wine; nothing missing.. AWESOME! After lunch, a visit to Budelli island and Rosa beach, where the "venerabile" controls anybody toaches the special sand that sorrounds the cristaline water! Once we were back in merkaba, we "sail" back to port around 7 pm. Day was awesome, however, i missed a bit of real sailing! With some more sailing a 5 star for sure, hope next time! Fabiano and riccardo were very friendly and professional, good and simple people! Price worths it! I will be back! Thanks
