Sailing boat trips to Asinara
Do you know you have the feeling that time runs at a different rate when you are sailing? It all depends on the wind and the sea. You’ll realize that since your very first time on a sailing boat while on holiday far away from the city chaos. That wonderful feeling of freedom that only the sea and a boat can give you sliding down the waves.
Spending a day on a sailing boat is definitely a life changing experience!
If you are looking for an out of this world sailing adventure you must come to Sardinia and contact the Asinara Sailing School in Stintino. The school offers amazing sailing boat trips to the Asinara island (home to the National Asinara Park). The departure point is generally Marina di Stintino harbor. You’ll spend your full-day trip from 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM on board of the Equinoxe (Sun Light 31 model, 10 metres, max 8 people). The boat was designed and built by Jeanneau, an historical French boatyard and one of the best boat manufacturers and yacht builders in Europe.
On the way to the Asinara island guests can enjoy frequent stops to the most breathtaking spots for snorkeling and swimming in the refreshing waters of the Asinara coast. A selection of local traditional dishes from starters to coffee is available for your lunch on board.
The Asinara Sailing school offers a selection of 3 different sailing experiences depending on guests availability. A one day trip, a half day trip and the opportunity to rent a sailing boat for a full day.
While sailing the Asinara coast you might have the opportunity to enjoy a dolphin watching experience (if you are lucky) or discover the National Park wildlife.
Among the most popular protected species you might encounter: the white donkey, which also represents the Asinara island symbol and the Mouflon, a Sardinian wild sheep.
The Asinara Sailing School trips enjoy a low environmental impact. The owner, Mr. Giorgio Leone, has been awarded with a label of environmental excellence from the National Parks and Conservation areas Network.
Guests disembark at Cala Reale where it is possible to enjoy watching the island’s white donkeys and visit the C.R.A.M.A. center for the rehabilitation and study of stranded sea turtles and whales.
