This is not just a trip, but a real "sea-kayaking navigation experience" with a professional coach who will take care of you since the meeting outside the base camp, until the end of the experience.
I'll meet you at the gate of the base camp, I'll accompany you at the parking, then I'll provide you a pre-trip briefing, just 15 minutes to talk about kayak features, safety, weather conditions in the bay and some sea-kayaking tricks.
I'm a local guide, born in Sardinia I've spent all my life here, then l can recount about our life, history, traditions, language, flag and so on :-)
Enjoy the breathtaking views along the way: sandy beaches, tourquoise water and the pink granite rock with strange shapes, as Capo d'Orso, the headland overlooking the bay that takes its name from a huge bear shaped rock, a massive block of granite, eroded by the wind over centuries. So huge that for ancient sailors was a point of recognition, because it was clearly visible from the sea.
During the summer we have the chance to practice snorkeling.
With some little luck we might see dolphins, I can't promise, but sometimes happened.
We go kayaking in the enchanting naturalistic area of Golfo delle Saline (Palau), just in front of Caprera island, the ideal place to go kayaking near La Maddalena, a sheltered bay that allows beginners to paddle safely.
We should arrive just 1200 metres from Caprera Island, in the distance we can see La Maddalena, the main island of the Archipelago, a geomarine national park consisting of a group of islands situated in the stretch of sea between Sardinia and Corsica.
