If you are looking for a sightseeing bus on water then look no further. Stops at the same places as the other boats = very crowded beaches. If that is not what you want then rent a rubber boat instead or go by bus around la Maddalena. With that said, they run a good sightseeing boat if that is what you are after.

Fantatic trip with a very nice crew.

- Please try to focus on the comms, invest in pronoucing the different languages properly. The noise on the boat is quite high and I think that if you want to share information about the different locations you should invest in your performance. - Forbid feeding seagulls. Although it might be interesting for retired type of tourists (any nationalism) to throw food at them, they should know that this is also kind of a pollution if this happens 4 times a day or less (dependent on your ride schedule). conclusion. we really enjoyed the trip and sardegna. we embraced the fact that sardegna has strict rules and is not spoiled and devastated as mallorca or i.e. rimini. you should stick and adhere to those strict principles. you would gain customers like us (enjoing the nature, respecting the culture and supporting the inhabitants) or you get the rest of the crap of the world (sorry for those serious words) if you dont. we plan to come back to sardegna. Keep it unspoiled, it´s worth it.

The greatest day in Sardinia!

We had a fantastic tour with the Elena's boat crew. Everything went perfectly, the weather was insanely nice and the experience on board very positive. The staff was very friendly and the whole service amazing. Considering the price, we had a great plan with lunch included and we saw the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia! Thanks for gifting us a sunny, perfect day :)
