All passengers are required to wear FFP2 protective mask for the entire duration of the excursion (under 6 exempt) and to use a special hand sanitizing gel when boarding. A pre-boarding temperature check is mandatory: as per protocol, access is not allowed in the event of temperatures above 37.5 °C. The maximum passenger capacity has been reduced to ensure social distancing, but relatives are allowed to sit close together. The boats are regularly and carefully sanitized after each service, using specific products. We ask passengers to arrive at the boarding point in advance in order to complete all the safety procedures necessary to fully enjoy our excursions.

There is no better time as the cetaceans are permanent in the Pelagos Sanctuary. The probability of seeing them is therefore constant throughout the year. It is possible to view the complete summary HERE.
No, since we are looking for free animals in their natural habitat we can’t guarantee sighting. The experience of our crew and scientific staff makes it possible to reach very high percentages of sightings every year, statistically equal to 95%, but it is always good to keep in mind that, rarely, there are also excursions without spots. In this case it is possible to take part in a new excursion in the same season, taking advantage of a 50% discount.
Each excursion is different from the previous ones because the crew defines the route based on the sea conditions, the wind and any reports from the research organizations we work with, regardless of the point of embarkation. The whole Ligurian Sea is part of the Pelagos International Sanctuary and therefore the probability of sighting does not vary from one departing point to another.
It is not mandatory, because once the animals are spotted the boat approaches them making them visible to the naked eye, but it is possible to bring it to participate more actively in the research phase.
No, but we recommend comfortable clothing and appropriate shoes (no heels). Further information can be found in the devoted section on our website.

Yes, you can access the boat with wheelchairs, specifying at the time of booking this requirement to enable us to guarantee the correct assistance. The gangway has a width of 80cm. Also the on-board toilet is accessible.
Access is allowed only to small animals, kept on a leash or in a suitable carrier, even if the duration of the excursions and the spaces available on the boat in our opinion would suggest not to take them.
