I reserved by email and the communication was efficient and agreeable. The owner greeted us warmly and made sure every family was seated together. His control of the boat is amazing and we were able to navigate through tight spaces. The narrating was informative and we enjoyed swimming with the fish. I would have enjoyed hearing about the owner's life as a fisherman and the corsican way of life a little more. All in all, a great tour.

My wife and I recently did the complete tour of the Calanche de Piana and Scandola and absolutely loved it. The views are incredible and it's hard to believe how clear that water is.

Corse Adrenaline made the trip even better. Their speed boats are very clean and are both small enough to get into the many secluded caves and then fast enough to make the trip between destinations quite enjoyable. Our guide was excellent and despite being the only English speakers on the boat, he was happy to provide us his discussion of the locations in English everytime after he gave it in French. We didn't expect that but really appreciated it. And to top it off, the trip is very reasonably priced for the time you get to spend on it.

If you take the full tour you get a nice stop-off in the tiny (20 inhabitants) village of Girolata where you can grab some food and drink or souvenirs if you wish. We were even able to take a swim after this stop before entering Scandola so don't forget your swim gear and a towel...and take a snorkel if you have it, the water is crystal clear.

We highly recommend Corse Adrenaline if you're considering a boat trip out of Porto. Probably best to book well in advance as the boats are quite small.

In Porto, there are many companies that offer guided boat tours to Piana and Scandola. We choose this one based on the comments we read on Tripadvisor and we are very pleased we did.

The guide was a great guy with a good sense of humor and he knew very well how to handle his speedboat (he himself came up with the idea of this kind of boat). Given the fact the boat is also quite slim, it was easy for him to enter caves and go closeby rocks and cliffs. Also the fact that only 12 passangers can take a seat makes this trip more 'privat' then most of the other companies' boats.

We took the morning trip (starts at 9am) and we think this is perfect for weather and light conditions. It was easy to take pictures during the whole trip (only at the end we got quite wet from the stormy weather).

The only minus point was that we were not able to have a swim during the trip as was indicated in the leaflet. It seemd that the night before another passenger broke off the ladder that enables you to get you off and on board again! Probably this will be fixed by now.

We enjoyed a water tour of the Gulf of Porto, including the Scandola Reserve and the Calanches of Piana. What made this tour different was the boat. While the rest of the boats departing around us were smaller skiffs, dinghy's, and houseboats, Corse Adrenaline offers a 12 seat speed boat. And boy does he use it.

Getting from place to place was half the fun. The guide cranks up the rock 'n' roll music on the stereo every time he's getting ready to move, and turns it off when we get close to one of the attractions and he narrates. The entire trip takes 3 1/2 hours, including a 1/2 hour stop in a little area that has restaurants and restrooms. It's a great halfway point to stretch your legs.

It felt 100% safe, it was energetic, and I heartily recommend it. BTW - the narration is in French, with a slight nod to the English speaking audience (us), but it didn't matter. We had fun regardless!

We selected this company as we don't appreciate being crammed with other people. This boat trip was the highlight of our trip to Corsica. The Calanques de Piana and the Reserve Naturelle de Scandola are superbe, but the way to visit them is in a small boat, with a guide that truly has a passion for the region and good people skills. This was great, but book in advance as there are only 12 seats or so on the boat.
