Boat trips

We leave every day at 10:00am aboard our motorboat, the “Andrea Padre”, from the Banchina Dogana, across from the old city walls and the Garibaldi tower, in the port of Alghero; sailing along the coast of the so-called Coral Riviera, passing by Capo Galera and Punta Giglio, we reach the promontory of Capo Caccia (the lighthouse is 186 metres high), where we see the beautiful set of steps known as the scalinata del cabirol leading to Neptune’s Caves, with their sea-level entrance. Moving ahead, we catch sight of the spectacular Isola Foradada, with its enormous hollow section, the sunlight playfully glinting off it. The breathtakingly eroded Cala d’inferno marks the farthest point of our journey. Returning past the belvedere of Capo Caccia, we enter into the Bay of Portoconte, where – having taken in the Madonnina del Fruntuni, we make our stop: Torre del Bollo, at around 12:00pm.

Here you can dive into the sun-kissed waters to your heart’s content, or indulge in some snorkelling (with mask, snorkel and flippers) amid the beautiful fish of the wonderful Portoconte National Park and the Marine Protected Area. At 1:00pm, you will be served up a delicious lunch of local cheeses and sausages as a starter, followed by pasta with fresh-crab sauce and cozze alla marinara (mussels), accompanied by water, local wine and coffee (if you require a non-fish or vegetarian menu, please let us know in advance).

In the afternoon, we depart for Cala Dragunara, Tramariglio, El Faro,  Capo Boccato, and Punta Giglio. We then return to port at 6:00pm
           

Facilities on board: bathroom, indoor lounge, large sun deck, rental of scuba and snorkelling equipment.
