The Tenace is a highly modern 11-metre vessel, the elegant and comfortable flagship of the Joker Boat shipyard, based in the port of Cala Gonone. From here, it leaves at 10:30am every day for a wonderful mini cruise around the gulf, setting out to discover the most beautiful beaches and caves along the route of the wild blue.
As soon as it leaves the port, the captain will sail on a pleasant course near the coast, allowing guests to admire up close the alternating rock and forest landscapes, interspersed only with the numerous coves: Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Biriola, Le Piscine di Venere, Cala Mariolu, Cala dei Gabbiani, Cala Goloritzè.
Along the route, you can admire the beautiful caves and creeks which make up part of the coast, stopping for a close and personal visit to some of them, such as the Grotta dei Cormorani and the Grotta Azzurra.
We will continue on our journey until we reach one of the pearls of the Gulf, where the captain will drop anchor and you can enjoy a wonderful swim from the boat in the bright blue, crystal-clear waters of the Piscine di Venere, lie down to soak in some sun or rest in the shade of the large awning. Once you come back on board, you will be offered an apéritif, so you can sample the typical flavours of Sardinia accompanied by a nice, refreshing glass of wine.
After the Piscine di Venere, the boat will head to the picturesque beach of Cala Mariolu, where you will stop for around two hours: the longest stop of the day.
In the afternoon, you will resume sailing and towards the base of the Aguglia, an imposing elongated rock which towers impressively out of the sea, and you can simply admire or even swim near the spectacular arch of Cala Goloritzè, with its beach of the same name.
The captain will set sail for Cala Gonone and the guests will have the option of choosing whether to visit the famous Grotta del Bue Marino or stop on the beach for one last refreshing dip before returning to the port for around 5:30pm.
Every day, we depart from the port of Cala Gonone at 10:30am for a wonderful dinghy tour of the Gulf of Orosei.
The skippers, expert guides who will give you detailed and interesting explanations of your surroundings during the trip, will take you to the most beautiful and picturesque beaches (and you will see all of them): Cala Luna , Cala Sisine, Cala Biriola, the Piscine di Venere, Cala Mariolu, and Cala Goloritzè.
(It will not be possible to stay on board during the beach stops due to the organisational needs of the captain).
During the trip, our dinghies will be able to approach many of the wonderful caves and coves present along the coast, such as the famous Grotta del Bue Marino (optional visit with separate ticketing managed by the town of Dorgali), Grotta dei Cormorani, the Grotta Azzurra, the Cattedrale and the Turchese, some of which you will have the opportunity to swim inside, at the captain’s discretion.
Once the boat has left the port, our captains will sail along the coast, allowing you to admire the wonders of the stretch of coast from Cala Gonone to Cala Goloritzè up close.
You will visit and stop for a wonderful swim at anchor in the bright blue, crystal-clear waters of the Piscine di Venere before continuing on towards the spectacular Cala Goloritzè, where you will stop once more for a dip close to the natural arch adjacent to the beach. Once you are back on board, the captain will take you to the beach of Cala Mariolu, where you will have the longest stop of the day, so you can have your lunch, rest a while and enjoy the water for about 2 hours. During this lunch break, you are welcome to use the beach umbrellas, which you can ask the captain to give you before disembarking. In the afternoon, you will set off again towards Cala Luna, which is generally more enjoyable in the afternoon, as it can be quite crowded up to 2pm. Here, you can either choose to relax on the beach or opt for the visit to the Grotte del Bue Marino.
For this type of dinghy excursion, the return to port is expected around 5:30pm.
