  • We went to visit the natural reserve of Scandola with this company. At the sale of tickets, the saleswoman took honesty to tell us that the sea was rough, and that if we were on Calvi to qq days, he was better choose another day (but we go anyway). She gave the ticket to our daughter who was small and prone to evil of transport. In short, the commercial service is honest and friendly (which isn't always the case in Corsica...). On board the boat, the young man of the company was caring for passengers, taking regular news and dealing with those who were prone to seasickness. In summary, it was perfect, the reserve of scandola is beautiful. We just wish that there are fewer swell, but for this, the company is not responsible for...

  • We were stationed in Calvi, we booked out trip followed by Scandola Girolata from here. Impressive rock formations in the natural reserve of Scandola, cosy accommodation in the small "village" Girolata, which is reachable only on foot or by boat. Promised but not delivered: video transfer of the fish world. The decision lies with the captain, what ship he einsetze...unseres was not appropriately equipped. Only cash payment at a 6-Member group and € 64/person, thought that was once in ancient times... Just incidentally, the following week dropped the price to € 55.00. The drive from Girolata back stretches to Calvi in the length, at least we could marvel at a pair of dolphins. The possibility to book the same trip from Galeria out. However, the boats are small.

  • The reserve is beautiful however the stop in Girolata disappointed me a lot. You bathe in the middle of the boats and the water smelled bad. The crew was very nice. We had a very good time

  • The trip to the rocks is too long from Calvi, at least 45 minutes before it's getting interesting . You better start off from another location. The sea is very rough. Half of the visitors were vomiting. Horrible smell. The highly motivated ticket selling ladies are telling kids that they have a underwater view and will see many fishes. No way. Everybody went down to the underwater windows but the stupid captain went on way to fast to see anything. Because of the long way he has to go back, he can't slow down, that's obvious. At the rocks we saw the smaller boats that have started the trip nearer by going closer into the caves. Our ship was too big for that. The Colombo Line seems created to rip off elderly people who are they main percentage of the guests. Those may pay and be happy with ease. For all who switch on their brains it is too expensive for what you get and far too expensive for the puking pain. Thanks. Never again.
  • Nice but rather basic boat tour of the Scandola natural reserve for what's actually sold. 65euros per person for the visit of the Girulata village, where others but smaller boat companies might go closer and give you more details. Does not require to book too early though thanks to the size of their boats and surely shake less during agitated sea.
  • Very disappointing experience. Way too expensive for what it is. The boat was rushing through the sea, making some people very sick, and nobody had been warned about that. Most seats are located inside, making it very difficult to enjoy the landscapes which are (from what I have seen) really nice. The underwater view is really nothing more than a commercial trap, as there is nothing to see, especially because of the speed. Part of the staff people were kind, but most were rude and dishonest. We had to pay full rate although we only wanted a one-way ticket to Ajaccio.
  • Friendly staff. Fast ferry. Be careful because not accepted payment p cards. Cash only. We have gone from Calvi to Saddam. Departure at 9:30, but began to embark at 9:15.

  • Extremely expensive for what it is, the boat goes much too fast and we can't appreciate the landscape. (Many people have vomited due to speed). In addition to this the people who sell the ticket are dishonest and unpleasant. In short, a flee.
