Dolphin watching excursion

Expert guide explaining the tour



Departure from the port of Portisco with an initial bathing stop in the waters between the Costa Smeralda and the islands of Mortorio, Soffi and Le Camere.

We then continue to the promontory of Capo Figari to admire its imposing cliffs and with about 15 to 20 minutes of sailing we reach the waters off the bay of Golfo Aranci.

Questa zona, più comunemente conosciuta con il nome golfo dei delfini, è caratterizzata dalla presenza di una nutrita colonia di delfini che popola e rallegra queste acque. Poiché i delfini vivono in assoluta libertà l’avvistamento non può essere garantito, generalmente la probabilità di vedere il delfini è del 90%.

La gita ha una elevata valenza dal punto di vista ambientale e naturalistico poiché oltre all’attività di dolphin watching potrai ammirare le maestose falesie calcaree di Capo Figari e la natura selvaggia dell’Isola di Figarolo e Cala Moresca. Frequenti inoltre sono gli avvistamenti di mufloni, aironi e marangoni dal ciuffo.

Nautical Service adheres to the 'Gulf of Dolphins' project promoted by Worldrise, which ensures that the sighting excursion is carried out in a sustainable manner and adapted to the needs of the animals.

The operators who will accompany you on this wonderful experience adopt a precise code of behaviour and act responsibly and with total respect for the environment. Among the rules that are adopted are the maintenance of correct safety distances and the appropriate speed of navigation.

During this tour it is not possible to swim with the dolphins and feeding them is not allowed to preserve their health. You will take many photographs and discover many interesting facts about these incredible marine mammals.

Will we definitely see dolphins?
There is no absolute certainty of spotting dolphins because they live free, but the chances are very high. We who live in this area see them every day.

Can I take a bath during the trip?

Of course, there are stops during the trip to swim in the most beautiful bays and at the most characteristic places. Please note, however, that swimming with dolphins is not permitted.

I am on holiday with my dog and would like to take him with me, may I?

Of course, small animals are welcome as long as they are well-behaved. We encourage you, for the well-being of your pet, to bring everything it might need on board.

Where can I park?
At the entrance to the port you will find free parking spaces.

  • Bring a swimming costume and a towel if you wish to bathe
  • Don't forget a hat and sun cream
  • Depending on the time you choose to make the trip, we recommend that you bring a sweatshirt/wind jacket, which may be useful during the return trip
