From Palau: La Maddalena Full-Day Archipelago Catamaran Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 1 day
The tour departs from Palau harbor in the morning where you board your boat for the day and set sail onto the crystal clear waters of Sardinia. Admire the breathtaking panoramic views of the island as you travel along the coast, watching out for Porto Raphael and its famous villas along the way. Pass by the beautiful Punta Sardinia lighthouse before arriving at the first stop of the day, the island of Spargi. As the boat pulls into the bay of the island, marvel at your tranquil and uninhabited surroundings, unlike any other place on Earth. Enjoy some time to swim in the crystal clear waters at Cala Soraya, named by Princess Soraya in the 60s, or visit the bay just next to it, Cala Corsara. After your swim, regain some energy with a refreshing drink. Later, the captain will decide the next island to visit, dependent on the weather and the tide. Arrive at either Razzoli, Santa Maria, o...
The tour started with the organizer telling us that we we paid to rent the boat and not for an organized tour, so we had to “vote a skipper and a group leader following their recommendation” - clearly a scam to avoid any responsibility in case anything happened and not what we expected for this price. Anyway after this bad start the tour was actually very nice, we saw some astonishing places and the 2 guides were very friendly. I’d recommend the tour and the guys but definitely not the agency organizing the tour.
After pick-up from the meeting point in Olbia, you'll head for Cannigione where you'll board your boat to explore the La Maddalena Archipelago. You'll travel by the picturesque islands of Caprera and Santo Stefano on your way to the island of Maddalena. You can use your hour of free time in La Maddalena to visit the historic centre, the Palazzo Comunale, the Naval Museum, or the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art. Back on the boat, you will continue on to the islands of Spargi and Santa Maria, where you'll also have an hour to enjoy some swimming in the magnificent crystal clear waters, snorkelling, or relaxing and sunbathing on the beach. At lunchtime, the crew will serve tomato pasta on board the boat. Then, you'll continue along a scenic route past the Manto della Madonna, a stretch of sea with shallow waters. Finally travel back along the coast of Sardegna past the villages of Punta S...

Dear, Today is our last holiday day in beautiful Olbia and tomorrow we leave for Rome. Yesterday, Wednesday, September 8, is a day that I will remember for a long time. We were blessed with La Maddalena archipelago: a boat trip! Before booking, I had read the reviews here that were not positive. But, because we wanted to experience it in our own way, we booked it anyway, looking at the weather conditions, it was 27 degrees and no rain was expected. And, I'll tell you! It's unbelievably beautiful! Charge your phone battery well and bring an extra charging bank if you can because you won't stop filming and photographing. With such weather, it is better to put on your swimming trunks before you get on the bus. Enjoy the trip!
Very nice crew who shared their knowledge about history and nature of the places we passed. The tour was flexible and we sailed to places the group wanted to see. Since we had very good wind conditions, we could sail most of the time. The boat was fully booked, but there was enough space for everybody. Nice lunch including fruit in the afternoon (remember, it's a boat and not a restaurant ;-)) and drinks. All in all a wonderful day and highly recommended!
It was really really good. We were a bit afraid because of some less good reviews but for us it was totally worth the money. when we saw the other tour boats, we were so glad we had chosen this one. It does not have a lot of stops but you can really enjoy the ones you have and have a proper experience in those beautiful waters.
Excursion at the top I recommend! We took the catamaran for small group eet8 people and we had a great time! And the islands are beautiful!
Very good trip with the outdoorstv team ! We loved it very much
