Daily tour program
We help decide with our guests on a daily basis depending on the weather conditions, in order to make their adventure as enjoyable as possible. Once we are in a sheltered area we will evaluate together if everyone would like to stop for a swim, just relax, or have a short hike around the area to discover the surroundings. As the day progresses and lunchtime draws near we will choose the best spot to stop and eat.Every day is different and unrepeatable, for people who are seeing the archipelago or those who are returning. No one remains indifferent to the beauty of Sardinia!
Day at the island
We organize every day the tours starting from the port of Palau. The boat Athena will be ready to set sail in the morning returning in the late afternoon with crew: skipper and hostess. The skipper will do a short briefing, where he will give a brief description of the islands in the archipelago of La Maddalena and the route that will be possible to follow that day based on the weather conditions(wave and wind direction). During the day we normally suggest stopping 2/3 times in little sheltered bays. When the boat is anchored, it’s possible to reach shore swimming, or just snorkeling around the boat The stops will vary from 40 to 60 minutes. We also accompany our guests to the beaches using our tender to reach shore without swimming. Ahtenasail departs from the touristic port of Palau setting sail towards the archipelago’s islands with its immaculate beaches of white sand and transparent water that only Sardinia is most famous for.
During the navigation from one island to another we will sail as much as possible, especially if the wind is continuous. On board lunch will be offered which includes a Sardinian appetizer, first dish, coffee, digestive and drinks offered (white wine- water- soft drinks). Water is available to guests all day and for any need it will be possible to contact the hostess on board who will be happy to meet your requests.
The boat is really comfortable ,the guests can choose to sit in the cockpit or laydown on the bow of the boat(front),or sit near the captain at the stern. Guests will also have at their disposition the inside of the boat where they can use the toilet or leave their belongings or bags where they will stay dry from any the sea spray. When the boat stops for lunch the crew will open the sun curtain for shade. Athenasail offers also some diving masks to our guests for free usage so they can eplore the beauty the archipelago of la Maddalena under water as well. On board we also have medicine for sea-sickness. As we have mentioned before Athenasail is different because we don’t have a fixed route every day, we like to take into consideration what our guests would like to visit, this way all our customers are satisfied.
