About Palau Blue Tours
Palau Blue Tours offers unforgettable daily trips amongst the islands of the extraordinary National Park of La Maddalena as well as to the Southern tip of Corsica, on board of the comfortable motor-yacht «The Blue Rider!». A day with us means a day of joy and delight, sailing through blue waters in all their shades of aquamarine, blue sky, emerald, turquoise, azure. The excursion in fact meanders through a breathtaking scenery of wild islands where majestic granite rocks, scented Mediterranean vegetation, and hidden coves of fine white sand are surrounded by a sea whose waters are shimmering like a kaleidoscope. Plenty of safe excitement aboard the «The Blue Rider!»: – Comfort and relaxation: a very open view and comfortable lounge at the bow, an ample aft cockpit, and a super-panoramic flying-bridge. – Safety: stable and robust boat hull. – Warmth, sympathy and good feelings, with a professional crew and the polyglot captain Franco with long time experience of the Strait of Bonifacio. They will satisfy any curiosity concerning the history and culture of Sardinia and its sea and land. – Professionalism: the boat is regularly registered in the records of “Capitaneria di Porto” for the activity of driver. The crew is registered in the roles of “Gente di Mare” and in possession of professional qualifications required by law in force.

Thank you Franco and Giuseppe for such a great day ! I can’t say enough on how much my family and I enjoyed ourselves. Franco is the most gracious host ! Great knowledge of the area and very entertaining stories. The lunch was fantastic and the other guests were all so nice ! We could not of asked for more. If you want to visit and tour the archipelago islands around Maddalena this is the only way to do it. Stay away from the “big” boats and spend a perfect day with Franco !

Amazing day with my boys ! We were taken to the most spots you could imagine the water was amazing and the beaches were stunning . Franco was extremely informative and very nice ! We all sat around and he made us pasta and appertifs there actually was a lot of food ! Franco knew where to stop for us to snorkel and took us to the quietest stops . The people who were on board with us were also very nice and it was great spending the day with them . I would highly recommend this boat trip ! It was quiet expensive but a actually it was worth it as we were not bombarded with other people and we had a boat to ourselves ! Would certainly do this trip again

Franco is a wonderful person who does lead a lovely day at sea. Because he limits the number of people to 12, there is room to stretch out on the boat. The boat is comfortable and well kept and Franco knows the area like the back of his hand. Wind the wind is coming from one direction, he knows which coves to take you to and which not. We visited four beautiful swimming areas. The archipelago is gorgeous and it’s great he doesn’t go to the main island. He also feeds you plenty and I really loved the hot meal at lunch of pasta with wine followed by espresso and the mirto. I can’t imagine a better boat and better value in Palau. Find him on google maps too and just email him to make your reservation.

We decided to book The Blue Rider for the greats reviews and they did not disappoint at all! The day was perfect, we swam in clear waters and we saw cute fishes. The Capitan Franco was very friendly and the atmosphere on the boat was very familiar. (Only 10pax) Franco cooked a traditional dish for lunch and he was always looking after us. We highly recommend this experience!!
