Dolphin Sighting Tour with Snorkeling

60 reviews
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

One can learn a lot about Garibaldi by just going to his house about his family ,and his health , many personal items and his last days that you will not find in a book. His love of nature and the simple life and how he built the impressive house from granite and his love of granite ,and is buried in a simple massive granite coffin with some members of his family close by . However before going would recommend visitors look up more about his life and achievements on the internet . There is a an English translation information sheet but is very limited about what he actually achieved in his life . He was great leader and patriot who asked for little very active freedom fighter in South America and Europe . Todays leaders do not come close !! Italy needs to take this great hero out of the cupboard and dust him down and learn from what he achieved , and why he did it. He was a great leader of his today and great example for us now ! I was on completely my own and shown round by a very nice guy but at olympic speed , and I think much more could be done to promote Garibaldi life with information screens , and brochures. However we must not forget this is not Disney land but a memorial to a great man where he and is family are buried ,but we can learn a lot from his incredible life !

The great man of Italian unification lived here on and off while liberating Italy and Uruguay. It's a lovely farmhouse on the island of Caprera. Finding it is a bit of a challenge. If you cross the bridge to Caprera from La Maddalena and turn right, following the sign for Musei, you get to the geology museum. I suspect we were the only visitors that day. If you cross the bridge and turn right, and then turn left at the sign saying quite clearly Giuseppe Garibaldi, the road takes you up and up to the Garibaldi monument somewhere up at the top of the mountain. Get to the far end and you will be able to turn round, but probably not park. We didn't see anywhere to park, so we never saw the actual monument. The trick is to cross the bridge and turn left. There IS a sign, but we didn't see it on the way in - it's hidden under the sign saying BAR. Keep going until you reach the bollards and park up - easier said than done, this is Italy after all. Stroll to the gate and buy your ticket. Then wait. They give anglophones a laminated sheet to guide you round, Guide turns up and we follow her through the house. The guide speaks Italian, and I don't, or at least only enough to order a pizza. So the laminated sheet is useful. Some rooms it is forbidden to take photos and the guide clucks at me and wags her finger. Other rooms, no problem. No obvious reason. You CAN take a photo of Garibaldi's death bed, overlooking the sea - a lovely view to pass away watching. You CAN'T take a photo of his steam engine in the barn It's a nice place, a lovely house in a lovely location, but I didn't learn much about Garibaldi. An interesting guy - check out the Wikipedia entry for him

I have a peculiar fascination for Garibaldi, so being able to visit his house and the nearby museum, which is a time machine to his life and adventures was a lifetime experience for me. Add to that the gorgeous corniche of Archipelago della Maddalena, a dream! I have to say though that if you don't speak Italian the experience will be tainted. Translations are scarce, no audio guide available, no English speaking guide, seriously a shame. And I have to say that the museum could be better kept and the relics need some attention. I'm aware that funds for culture are not exactly abbundant, but I would hope we could do something to preserve our history and heritage.
