Brief description of the holiday
A characteristic 18-meter schooner, with golden sails, built entirely of wood and designed for an environmental awareness project on the theme of plastic in the sea.
Navigating with us means taking a step back in time, it means experiencing those emotions that only history with its traditions can give you .
Lie on the deck, eyes closed, the sun warming your face and feeling the gentle roll of the boat as it safely plows the water.
Or imagine the satisfaction of hoisting the mainsail with your arms, together with two or three other people, to the sound of "ooh issa! Oooohhh issaaa !!" just like you will surely have seen in the adventurers 'and pirates' films.
With its 30 tons of tonnage and more than 200 square meters of sails, our schooner guarantees you to make you live special and unforgettable moments .
We are well aware of the damage that plastic is causing to our seas and to all marine species.
We therefore propose an adventure to hunt whales (and not only) inside the Sanctuary of the Mediterranean cetaceans , in an area between the Island of Elba, the Tuscan and Ligurian coast, Corsica .
Under the expert guidance of a marine biologist , we will have the opportunity to be participants and protagonists of a real scientific expedition to collect important data on cetaceans and the presence of micro and macro plastics in the sea; data that will then be communicated to environmental organizations and organizations that are tackling the issue globally.
The expedition will consist of many hours of navigation, to explore the largest surface possible, but we will also have the opportunity to visit wonderful coves and enchanting backdrops.

Other important information
Trains to Orbetello Monte Argentario, Tiemme bus to Porto Santo Stefano.
By car: from the south you can easily reach Orbetello Monte Argentario, exit the SS1 and follow the signs for Porto Santo Stefano. Once at the port, contact me by mobile phone for updated directions.
I advise you to bring rainwear: at sea the weather can change suddenly, do not use rigid suitcases on the boat, spaces are limited.
If you think you are suffering from seasickness you can buy special tablets in the pharmacy.
