Dolphin Watching from the Port of Alghero

In Search of the Dolphins is a pleasant excursion into the Gulf of Alghero lasting 1 hour and a half which will allow you to visit the fish farm, the old walls with its towers, the island of La Maddalenetta, the pine forest and its beaches. The species of dolphins that frequent the sea of the Riviera is called the Stenella, which is attracted by the abundance of fish, they approach the coast in a great number. Dolphins that belong to this species are particularly common in the Mediterranean. They are very playful, sociable and able to perform jumps even up to 7 meters high. These characteristics make this dolphin a mammal very dear to man. Its keen intelligence and communication skills make him a beloved animal, very well known since ancient time. If it is easy for dolphins to approach small boats like ours, they become shy in the presence of bigger ones. They usually move in herds that can even reach 500 units so that more than one can often be seen at the same time.
