  • 6: cruising with kids of 5 and 8 years... leave at 9: 00 and then not bad waiting... we're talking, we eat, we s impatient... then they are there, to jump and play around the boat! A school of 150 dolphins followed us for more than 30 min and c was simply magical!

  • Imagine do found in sea bluer, in absolute silence, surrounded by dolphins around you doing jumps so close to you that you can almost touch it. This is the experience I had thanks to the jonian. My daughter and her friend had staring eyes in wonder. Even today when talking about this are exhilarated. Initially the cost seemed genuinely prohibitive, but after being there I'm not afraid to say that delays them a thousand times. Better an evening at a pizzeria in the least. The staff on Board then, composed of young people during these excursions studying dolphins and any special situations (and do not hesitate to collect garbage in the sea, as happened when I was ...) was extremely polite, eager to share their knowledge, and explained to children the importance of complying with the sea and the land. I repeat: a wonderful day, rewarding, unforgettable!

  • We took a day tour on one of the catamerans of the Jonian Dolphin Conservation. The idea is that visitors and tourists support the scientific research of the conservation while enjoying a day at sea. We had a really nice team, very open, knowledable and welcoming. Due to the sickness of one guest on board we had to return early to port but they offered to make a new tour on their invitation or refund of our money! A very nice form of tourism where you know that you support the protection of the marine habitat while spending a perfect day at sea!
  • 2 Days for dolphin watching with the Jonian Dolphin Conservation were extremely awesome. Thanks for this experience.
  • I found this Association by chance, trying with my wife on the internet some intersting in Puglia to spend a different day with our 3 children (12/8/3 years). Initially hesitant to pick up on a boat a child of 3 years in his first off we soon changed their minds, navigating around 5 hours was enjoyable for all participants and carried out in complete safety. All the children have been affected positively by this unique experience. There is no visit to the aquarium or Dolphinarium which can equal the beauty of these creatures in their habitat, to share with them a few hours it was great as well as educational. Collective excitation perceptible on Board at the time of the sighting, the emotion of adults and children when the dolphins have accepted the presence of the boat leaving almost stroking forward will be hard to forget memories. All this was made possible by a team of competent researchers available now to every need and especially respectful of marine friends. It wasn't the classic boat ride quite a real courtesy visit to these fabulous creatures that we have so much in common. Being a real exploration for a day the researchers also spent time at sea to provide many details about the marine life, children were attentive to the explanations as we may not normally accustomed to see them in a home/school context. Also on board the catamaran mussels farms (fabulous "Citro" or the outlet on the surface of an underground river) and the island of São Paulo and the passage at sea under the Aragonese castle during reentry were appreciated by all participants. Also note the exquisite local product offering while browsing, all included in the price. My family recommends this experience, thank you infinitely for having made possible and wished him to continue working on this project as well as they are doing. Congratulations and thank you again, we were literally ecstatic, we will again visit in the future!

  • Well organized, with competent and passionate about what they do. We lived our experience of researchers for a day with 10-year old daughter and we landed. Well done!
