30 Years of Experience

I was born in Sardinia in 1975 and I have been facing the sea for more than 30 years. 


After the experience on board navy ships, in 1997 I chose to embark on a deep-sea fishing vessel to re-embrace my passion for fishing. It was a fantastic decade, very formative both on a professional level and on a human level, and which I always remember with pleasure. 

In 2008 I returned to my beloved island to settle on the Costa Smeralda and buy my first boat: Patrizia, a wonderful little fishing goiter that allowed me to earn a living and rediscover direct contact with nature. For two years sunrises and sunsets accompanied me, the swimming of dolphins and the call of lesser shearwaters.

Then finally in 2016 arrives Annina II, a "bilancella" built in the 60s in Carloforte and moored in Bosa in a state of decay. I decide to save her from demolition and recover it. Still today Annina sails in excellent health and is ready to welcome you for extraordinary excursions in the waters of Carloforte and Sant'Antioco.

I wait for you,

your Captain Luca

La Barca

The Fleet

Annina II is a 10m long lateen sail.

She was built in Carloforte by the renowned shipwright Francesco Biggio in 1969 in oak, ash,  rock pine, maritime pine and fir.

For the first twenty years she was employed in coral fishing in Alghero then, in the same sea, she was the lobster fishing boat until the early 2000s.

Today Annina II sails in those waters where she was born and carries on her trade accompanying Luca in fishing for octopus and lobster between the islands of Sant'Antioco and Carloforte. 

Do you want to come on board with us to relive the history and magic of this boat in an unforgettable tour along the islands of southern Sardinia?

Le nostre destinazioni
Escursioni Barca Carloforte - Calasetta 77.jpg

Sant'Antioco is the largest of the Sulcis islands and all of southern Sardinia. This ancient land shows numerous testimonies of the Nuragic and Punic civilizations.

The coast line is intact, from the boat you can see barren cliffs, clearings covered with Mediterranean scrub, caves and deep coves that hide wonderful beaches.

We stop at the most scenic spots: the long Grande beach,the Mangiabarche lighthouse, the gulf of Mezzaluna, the incredible depths of Porto Susciau and Cala Lunga.


As on the island of San Pietro, the water is very transparent and in the underwater landscape, rich in fish, rocks, posidonia and sand alternate . 

Our destinations

Our trips depart from the port of Calasetta and offer two destinations: the island of San Pietro and the island of Sant'Antioco, in southern Sardinia.

The boat follows the coast to be able to observe the magnificent cliffs, the hidden caves, the great beaches and the most suggestive coves.

Thanks to the low walls, you travel on the surface of the water, in contact with nature and immersed in an unforgettable landscape.

Carloforte is an ancient village of Tabarchine foundation, among its picturesque streets you can still hear the Genoese accent. The coasts are largely wild, with an alternation of high rocky walls, caves, cliffs with curious shapes and wonderful beaches.


The sea is very clean and transparent everywhere. On our excursions the boat Annina II stops frequently for bathroom stops on shallow sandy bottoms in areas where the rocks and posidonia offer beautiful snorkeling opportunities.


The hull seems to be suspended over the water when we are at anchor in the bay of Le Spine, a lonely area surrounded by an incredible silence broken only by the call of Eleonora's falcons. Other stopping points are the Capo Sandalo lighthouse, La Bobba beach, the Tonnara, the Mezzaluna cliff, Cala Fico, Punta Nera.
