We did the boat trip today from Sagone and had a wonderful day. The weather was perfect, still warm and very sunny. We had been told to bring a lunch which we did need as we stopped for 2 hours at a tiny village with not enough services for the entire group on the boat. The views of the rocky cliffs were amazing and the crew made sure that everyone on the boat had a good view.
The only problem was that the guide who spoke only French, did speak very quickly and was making lots of jokes which were hard to follow. But he did give lots of information about geology and natural science of this area.
A very good day trip

I took the boat from Porticcio to Ajaccio and back. The boat was busy so make sure you buy your tickets on time. When booking a return ticket, you need to say what time you will be coming back. Taking a boat is fast and cheaper than taxi. You pay 5 euros for single trip, 8 euros for return trip. I recommend you to stand on the front part of the boat, you will have a great view and wind in you hair :)

We spent 2 hour 30 mins on this trip which included a 1 hour stop on the Iles Sanguinaire.
The commentary was all in French, I'm sure it was very informative but we struggled to understand with only a little French. The crew do speak a little English.
It was lovely to go to the final island@ Iles Sanguinaire but the shore is very rocky & difficult to actually swim, you need sturdy beach shoes.
Bar & toilets on board. Indoor & outdoor seating available.
€25 per adult, €15 per child.

A full day on the boat. We discovered the different golf (Ajaccio, Savogne & Porto) and ended up at the natural reserve.
The tour guide explained everything you need to know.
For lunch time, we stopped at a fishermen's village.... Did not really liked it, only accessible by boat... the only thing you will find is tourists....

We were lucky and had a perfect sunny day for our trip to Les Sanguinaires. The whole trip would have been much more enjoyable had the commentary included an English explanation, but the staff did a good job and our journey of about 40 minutes to the islands was relaxing. Going ashore for about an hour and walking to the lighthouse is worth it. The views are stunning and in spring the Marquis both looks and smells amazing. If you are so inclined and it's hot you have time for a dip. The waters are crystal clear. So a thumbs up for the destination, and the tour would get a five rating and the crew would get a tip if there had been information in English. Even a written version of the commentary would be great
