A great boat trip at sunset to go to the Revellata Lighthouse, swimming stop in a small cove with snorkel mask, and a little aperitif as a bonus!! Very friendly skipper!! Sunset visible at the end of the course!! We also did a quad outing the next morning to the Revellata lighthouse, Jean was very nice, he guided us well and explained how to manage the quad, the ride was fun and we were able to go far and enjoy it all safe !! Beautiful landscaping guaranteed!! Thanks to them for their welcome and for allowing us to discover beautiful places in this way.

Great cruise! We took part in 2 excursions with the girls aged 11 and 14. We were all thrilled! The experience is great, both by the friendliness of the staff and the beauty of the landscapes! Magnificent way to discover Corsica (especially with the little aperitif as a bonus…;) Clean and comfortable boats!!
