5 Tips from Captain Corrado
Corrado was born in Genoa and grew up in Olbia since he was a child. He has 25 years experience in commanding tourist boats all over the northeast of the island. He has been a scuba diving instructor for many years and is now a big fan of snorkeling. In autumn it collects hundreds of mushrooms and its risotto with porcini mushrooms is fantastic. You can meet him every day at the Private Boat Tour and at tha Afternoon Tour | Sea Kayak.
1. Go Snorkeling
The water starts to warm up in April, it becomes pleasant in June, it is perfect from July to September, then slowly starts to cool off.
2. Collect Mushrooms
There are many forests and few people, so after the rain, there are a lot of mushrooms everywhere. Porcini, ova, and chanterelles are the easiest and safest to find.
3. Explore by Kayak
While you paddle, you can touch the sea water and the granite rocks. The birds and fish approach you without fear.
4. Enjoy Winter
The island in winter is almost uninhabited. There are many delicious sea urchins to gather and eat among the granite rocks.
5. Hike at Monte Pino
A huge block of granite that dominates the city of Olbia from the west, wild and majestic. It’s covered by forests of cork oaks, holm oaks, junipers and populated by foxes and wild boar.
