Explore the environmentally significant Mud Islands and observe a multitude of thriving birdlife on a private RIB boat 2.5-hour adventure cruise for 8-12 guests.
Departing from Sorrento, a swift ride on the RIB Boat will take you meandering between the sand banks towards the island that sits low on the horizon. Getting ever closer to the landing point the vegetation including saltmarsh, shrubland and seagrasses becomes more obvious.
Arriving at the island, it’s time to wade ashore and enjoy a 1.5hour walk to the lookout and along the untouched beaches. Your first sighting of gannets, terns, cormorants and pelicans will inspire you to seek out more species before returning to the boat for the trip to civilisation.
An internationally significant habitat for many birds, the Mud Islands represent a great spot for birdwatching and up to 70 species have been recorded.
