This was recommended by a friend who visited the week before us and I am so happy it was! This was truly the highlight of our trip. We did a group trip with a captain (Giuseppe) and it was awesome! He was such a fun and engaging captain, the beaches and caves he took us were some of the most beautiful we've ever seen. It is a great value for money! They provide a cooler and beach umbrella, so just pop into the supermarket before to bring drinks and lunch as there aren't really any restaurants at the beaches. Highly recommend grabbing sandwiches to go from Retrovino Market Bar for lunch later!

I would highly recommend Palmasera Boat Rental!! Rosa was very nice, friendly and helpful as well as Gianbastiano the skipper. The service was fantastic. The place is a must do in Sardinia, wonderful beaches, magical places. Unforgettable. We will comeback.

Really easy to deal with by email before, and in person while there. Loved driving my own boat (never done it before, but was quality). Matey instructed us how to operate it, but the part where you drive into the shore to drop off people then head back out was not very clear (I think a practise attempt at the nearby Cala Gonone beach should have been included). Didnt matter much in the end anyway, as every time I tried to do it on any of the beaches, a grumpy old man would shout at me to F off back out to sea (apparently it was too wavy for small boats, but that was a load of crap, as other boats of the same size were allowed in - the tour ones with pro drivers). Ended up anchoring 100m from shore for each beach, and swimming in, but couldn't bring towels that way, so spoilt it slightly. Also wasn't allowed on Mariole beach at all as didn't have a 1 euro ticket which you must have before you leave port (Palmesera said it was a new rule that particular beach owner brought in on that day, but other boats had them and were allowed on, so not sure why they didn't know about it, which was a real let down - they said I could drive back to another beach miles away to purchase one, but I shouldn't have to if they gave me it at the start - I doubt I'd even be able to get one there anyway as they wouldn't even let me near the beach to get my wallet out). Overall a great day, but I think I'd go for the 12 person with driver tour next time, as you're guaranteed to get on the beaches without rebuff - not Palmasera's fault, but they could have warned us it might happen - wasn't told jack about it. Reason I rented one was basically to smash up the waves and that part was totally worth it, but beach wise it was a bit of a disaster. €40 for petrol at the end made it €200 in total, which was double what we would have paid if doing the driver tour for €50 each, but no qualms about that, although would have been 'more' worth it if they'd let us on at least one bloody beach!

If you visit Cala Gonone, you HAVE to hire a boat!!! Lots of other hire companies but this experience was an absolute pleasure!! The staff were fantastic, offered us a cool box for the day free of charge. After a very quick but good intro on how to drive your boat, we were let loose on the open seas, free to discover the amazing beaches and coast line. Without doubt, the highlight of our holiday. I cannot say a bad word about this company from start to finish. Thank you for giving us these memories!!

Unfortunately the weather wasn't that good on the day of our rent but the experience was still good. A short instruction in the beginning and the cruise started. You can swim to the beaches (except for Cala Goloritzé - which is good :) or just enjoy the sea and its waves. After the day we had to pay 45 Euro for the refuel. Overall a nice experience!
