If you love the sea and fancy the idea of sharing a day with friends or meeting new people, come and sail on one of magnificent Velieri Valentina schooners.Two schooners offering full comfort to 15-20 persons sail each day to the stunning sand beach islands of the La Maddalena Archipelago - Caprera, La Maddalena, Santo Stefano, Spargi, Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria. Leaving from Baia Sardinia at 9:30 (back at 17:30) we provide a whole day excursion which will take you to the most beautiful and picturesque spots inside the Maddalena National Park. During our journey our team provides information about the area and any required service.The schooners can be let exclusively for a small group of people with itinerary to be agreed upon.

Not only is this one of the most beautiful boats I have ever been on the captain and crew were lovely. The booking rep, Mario, was an absolute gentleman and a delight to deal with. This trip may cost a bit more than the others but the experience is far far superior. A wonderful experience and beautiful way to see... More

Difficult to add to the good comments already made by others. A truly fantastic full day out going round the islands. The boat is an old beautifully restored Norwegian whaler, there were 17 of us but plenty of room on the boat to lay around sunning ourselves between the stops. I can honestly say this trip was the highlight of... More

We had a really great day on this lovely sail boat. The captain and ship hand were great and clearly very experienced so we felt in very safe hands. We saw a dolphin which was a lovely bonus. We did the whole day tour choosing to stay on the boat for the last beach stop. The beaches were a touch... More

Please don't confuse this small sailing ship with the huge boats that take hordes of people to the Archipelago of La Maddalena. There were only 14 of us and we fitted on the boat comfortably, with plenty of space to move around. Fabriano and Christena were a fabulous crew. We had the chance to disembark for an hour at Cenro... More

If you are in Baia you simply must, must treat yourself to this boat trip. The very best clay of my holiday. Ok, you may think it's a little pricey but it's worth every penny. If I had known just how good it was I would have planned 2 trips. The captain of the boat Enrico is a real comedian.... More

We (a group of 6) boarded the Valentina 2 off the coast of Baja, Sardinia. Our hosts, Enrico & Ronalto, spoke English and looked after us very well. There were 13 guests in total, which meant there was lots of space on the boat. This was a much more pleasant experience than previous boat trips I've been on where they... More

We did spend the whole day on the sailing boat with extremely friendly crew. We had lots of space as we were only 12 people. The lunch served on the boat was really good. The landscapes were amazing and we can highly recommended the trip.

Spent a lovely relaxing full day today on the vintage sailing ship yacht Valentina. The yacht was built in 1939 & they only take 12 people per trip so you have plenty of space. In the expert hands of Captain Enrico and Samuel we visited Maddelena and the surrounding area. Lunch is served on the boat, bread, olives, Sardinian sausage... More

I had a great time on the tour of the Maddalena Archipelagos on board of Valentina. The service is fantastic, friendly and fun. They serve a simple lunch with pasta and white wine that is impeccable. We were able to visit the stunning islands in comfort and charm. In my opinion, this one of the best way to enjoy Maddalena.
