Our Boats

Our goal is to make everything simple and easy for you. If you need recommendations, you have experienced, local seamen (us!) at your disposal.

No driving experience necessary. Anyone can navigate, but we'll be sure to show you how to navigate and control the boat in a simple and secure way.

If you prefer a more comfortable journey in the sea, guided and assisted by one of us, jump on our admired "Angelina," a typical Ligurian gozzo, over 8m long, equipped with a cabin. The security and practicality of this class of boat is what makes it the choice of Ligurian seamen.

Every boat is meticulously maintained and 100% safe. The efficiency of the engines are insured and come with a full tank with a 10L reserve.

Finally, in keeping with the philosophy of the marine park, we put great emphasis on the environmental aspect: We use environmentally safe paint, we do not use antifouling fairings (instead, the boats are cleaned by hand, the old fashioned way), and some boats are equipped with an electric motor powered by solar panel.

Small boats for rent: canadian and rubber boats

For the utmost independence, we have a few small boats (rubber and aluminum boats), a little longer than 4m, equipped with small, outboard motors. Ideal for reaching beautiful spots on your own, these boats are perfect for a romantic day trip or a fun time with family and friends. And don't worry, it's all easy to manage - to navigate the motor, to row, to throw in the anchor in the sea for a quick dip, to moor to one of the 5 villages.. You can live like a local! With each rental, we'll ask for an approximate time of return, then explain the constraints of the Marine Protected Area, a quick explanation of the necessities on-board and you're off!

Our boat, the "Angelina," is a Ligurian gozzo, 8.5m, accommodates up to 9 persons, and comes with a cabin, kitchen, full cockpit, a panoramic sun deck, mounted diesel 90cv motor, a shower, a refrigerator and much more! On this boat, we will accompany you on tours and excursions along the coast. We'll guide you through the most fascinating bays, we'll show you the most beautiful views, you can swim where you choose, and if you want, we'll tell you about the people, the place and the history of the villages! So, ask away! Children are happily welcomed on-board! We have floats and life jackets for every age, even a rollout bed in the cabin for an afternoon nap!
