Our snorkeling tour was unique and we had a lot of fun. Our guide, Antonio, is just a super friendly, funny and warm man. We can highly recommend him. On our next vacation in Sardinia we will definitely take part in a guided tour again ☺️

Wonderful boat trip in the waters around Olbia. Antonio was a great guide, and was very good with my 10-year-old son. He took us to some beautiful spots! We enjoyed the entire experience very much.
