Overview
More
In the first part of the tour we search dolphins: thanks to the presence on board of the marine biologists of MareTerra NGO, our chance of spotting dolphins is higher than 80%. During the navigation, a briefing will be provided to let you know more about biology and behaviour of dolphins. Once we sighted a group of dolphins, we get closer in accord with the International Code of Conduct we adopt to minimise the risk of any disturbance to dolphins. Thanks to the photo-identification technique, we can recognise dolphins by their dorsal fins and we are able to tell you their names. In the second part of the tour, we'll discover the underwater world and its inhabitants with a guided snorkeling. Our guides will accompany you and will give you guidance in the water. In this way you can enjoy your safe snorkeling experience. NB - To participate in the snorkeling you need to know how to swim in deep waters. On the way back to the port, you will taste an aperitif with local products.
