ALASSIO FOR SEA LOVERS
An unforgettable all-encompassing experience of the sea, not just relaxing on the beach. An adventure to discover the marine heritage and its biodiversity, and promoting responsible and sustainable fishing in association with local fishermen
Proposal 1 Whale watching
Arrive at the Tourist Port of Alassio, meet with the crew and marine biologist to experience a full day trip in the International Sanctuary for Cetaceans: you will observe the marine mammals in their natural environment, respecting the international code of good conduct and the regulations to respect their habitat. On board a comfortable boat you can see numerous different species such as striped dolphins, common rorquals, sperm whales, beaked whales, Risso’s dolphins, pilot whales, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins.
During the trip, on board you will be served a delightful snack made from local produce.

Proposal 2 Tour of Gallinara Island with swim
The story of the island is mysterious and fascinating: the name derives from a settlement of wild hens. There have been many hermitages here, and in World War II it was the support point of Wehrmacht thanks to the caves and tunnels. It is now an estimable jewel, site of community interest and nature reserve with Mediterranean and tropical vegetation, uncontaminated habitat for seagulls and birds of prey. Arrive to the Tourist Port and meet with the crew for the tour of the island with its circumnavigation. During the hot season a stop-off is included to do snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters around the island with snack included.
This is possible in all seasons. For summer outings a bathing costume and towel are recommended. For those who wish to do snorkelling, a mask, fins and snorkel. The diving centre makes the full equipment available, free of charge, for those who are without.
And to end these incredible adventures, dinner with the fishermen on the quayside or on the boat moored in the port with a fixed menu based on freshly-caught local fish.
The fish is cooked simply and originally following the recipes of the Ligurian tradition and accompanied by wine, oil and products of the hinterland (Dinner with catch of the day: 2 appetizers, first course, second course, dessert, wines excluded).
