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.

We simply had one of the best days ever. All of Franco's reviews are 5 stars and I can see why, definitely the best boat tour not only in Palau but all of Sardinia. He took us out nice and early before the crowds, to the most beautiful beaches and water that we've ever seen - spending 40+mins at each stop. We had a few families on board with us too and it was perfect for kids to have a snorkel and explore. Then we stopped for lunch on the boat, starting with aperitivo; prosecco, salami and sardinian pecorino. Then Andrea (Franco's colleague) made us some absolutely delicious pasta for lunch, very fresh ingredients paired with delicious wine. Then we had some digestifs followed by coffee and some amazing small pastries. We spent the whole day exploring the small islands near Maddalena and Franco was entertaining, funny, and most importantly extremely attentive and kind. He even lent us some snorkels and went snorkelling with us in one of the bays. We didn't want the day to end so we even asked if we could book the same again for the next day but unfortunately he was fully booked. The size of the group on the boat was perfect (about 12 people) a good mix of families and couples. Would highly highly recommend, we will definitely be booking it again next time we are in Sardinia. I never usually leave reviews but this was so amazing that I felt compelled to. Grazie Franco and Andrea, the trip really made our holiday.

Franco and Andre wee fantastic! Took us to some great spots and had great stories to tell. Server really nice food, not to mention the vino 😃. The other guess on board were ever so nice and we all had a blast together. I couldn’t recommend Franco and Blue Tours more. You will not be disappointed! Grazie Franco !!

We met Marinela while walking along the port in Palau looking for a boat trip with our children. Marinela was lovely to talk to and so happy to tell us about a day out on the Blue Rider with Captain Franco! We didn’t look up any reviews or enquire elsewhere as the trip sounded perfect - and it was! Stunning beaches, great company, lovey food and time to enjoy to islands. The weather was windy so the boat was thrown about (which I really enjoyed!), but Franco found quiet beaches sheltered from the wind and entertained us all the way.
