The dive was enchantingly beautiful. As a beginner you only have to paddle with your feet and you will be guided by the dive guide. This allows you to fully immerse yourself in the beautiful underwater world. It was teeming with fish. The round trip was a bit bumpy as it was very windy. Absolute recommendation.

Very nice trip to connect with nature and discover parts of Cagliari from a new perspective, while being active; the rowing was not too difficult and the kayak appeared stable (for me as a beginner); our guide was very nice and provided throughout the tour some background about the region and history.

Beautiful coastline, great guides, lovely trip with two breaks for swimming. Fantastic photos and videos afterwards. Very highly recommended!

Excellent way to see the Devils saddle .. beautiful out on the water. Daniele was an excellent guide.

Beautiful paddle in clear water beneath spectacular cliffs Well worth doing.
