Neptuno's Caves Alghero | Dolphins

Who of you has never dreamed of seeing a dolphin up close? Watching him play and jumping right before our eyes? The Motorships Freccia & Attilio Regolo offer dolphin watching excursions in the Riviera del Corallo every day.

"In Search of the Dolphins" is a pleasant excursion into the Gulf of Alghero lasting 1 hour and a half that will allow you to visit the fish farm, the old walls with its towers, the island of La Maddalena, the pine forest and its beaches.

The species of dolphins that frequents the sea of the Riviera is the Stenella, which, attracted by the abundance of fish, approaches the coast in a great number. Dolphins belonging to this species, particularly common in the Mediterranean, are very playful, sociable and able to perform jumps even up to 7 meters high.

These characteristics make this dolphin a mammal very dear to man. Its keen intelligence and communication skills make him a beloved pet, very well known since ancient time.

If it is easy for dolphins to approach small boats like ours, they become shy in the presence of bigger ones. They usually move in herds that can even reach 500 units so that more than one can often be seen at the same time.

You can choose between two different times: one in the morning and one during the early afternoon.

In particular:

- In the morning, departure is at 11:00 and return to port at 12:30

- In the afternoon, departure is at 17:00 and return to port at 18:30

The cost of a ticket is € 10 for an adult and € 5 for children aged between 5 and 10 years old. For those who plan to travel in a group, there are very good discounts.
