delfini TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

To reach the area of sighting we will navigate above the submarine canyon of Caprera, known mostly by researchers and known to fishermen for the particular morphology of the seabed and the richness of life: the canyon begins near the island of Caprera reaching a depth of over 1,000 m., up to twenty miles to the east of the Strait of Bonifacio and then bending south.

After about 60 minutes of navigation by our fast and comfortable catamaran, entertained by interesting information given by cetaceans researcher on board, we will reach the sighting area where we’ll proceed at about 10 knots for 2 hours. We will be looking for spectacular sightings, watching sea surface with provided binoculars and ready with photo-video equipment to capture magical encounters. You will be directly involved in searching of whales and dolphins, helping us to find the animals on water surface.


We call the area “the cetaceans’ triangle”, a spot area with high probability to meet striped dolphins,delfini stenelle fin whales, Risso's dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, sperm whales, Cuvier's beaked whales; We also meet often sea turtles, tunas, swordfishes and sunfishes, and more rarely mobulas (Mediterranean mantas).

Around 11:30 a.m. we will stop for offshore snorkeling and you can have an amazing swim in open water: an exciting experience above 1000 meters of depth!
Within the offshore snorkeling you can observe planktonic organisms living in offshore environment: fishes, ctenophores, krill, off-shore jellyfishes, with the aid of our marine biologist.
