Description


Cetaceans Sanctuary Experience


You will meet your marine biologist at ship dock or at tender mooring; she will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board. She will introduce you to your professional English-speaking captain. They will escort you to the Cetaceans Sanctuary in order to enjoy a unique experience.

In the Cetaceans Sanctuary area is estimated the presence of a thousand whales, bottlenose and common dolphins, sperm whales, pilot whales and zifi, as well as occasional rorquals that in these waters find the necessary conditions both for the provision of food and for the breeding. Special chemical and physical features induced by the morphology and the water movement make the stretch of sea between Sardinia, Tuscany, Liguria, Monaco and France one of the richest areas of life in the Mediterranean.

For this reason,  since the Eighties, many Research Institutions and Environmental Organizations have begun to convince the States to create the First International Protected Area in the Mediterranean for the protection of the marine environment, established in 1999. The reason why this area is the pelagic environments more productive and rich of life in the Mediterranean Sea is thanks to the peculiar geography of the coast.

The excursion in the heart of the "Cetaceans Sanctuary" is suitable for audiences of all ages and shoots for the research and the observation of 8 cetaceans species that inhabit the Sea. On board the boat your biologist will comment the sightings, providing you information and curiosity and gather important scientific data for research.

After the visit you will enjoy your lunch in a typical restaurant.

After lunch your driver will escort you back to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Insider Tip

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
