Full description

Lovers of exploration and nature trips, you don't need to go all the way to the Maldives to have a memorable experience! Just join this 3-hour boat tour to discover the sea caves of the Santa Maria di Leuca coastline.

This excursion will take you to discover the natural beauty of the area and allow you to make a couple of stops to dive into the clear waters of this Eden.

At the end of the activity, you will have nothing but wonderful memories!

What we will do

We will meet in Santa Maria di Leuca (LE), where we will be met by the captain who will guide us through the experience. We will board the boat and set off on the excursion that will take us to discover the sides of the coast. In fact, the activity allows us to visit the sea caves on the Ionian and Adriatic sides.

Proceeding along the Ionian side, we will encounter the Grotta del Fiume, the Grotta delle Tre Porte, the Grotta del Presepe and the Grotta del Drago. Proceeding instead along the Adriatic side we will reach the Grotta dei Gabbiani, the Grotta dell'Orso Cupo and the Grotta Verdusella. Each of these caves has a distinctive feature from which it often takes its name. The River Cave, for example, is characterised by a freshwater spring with a sandy bottom while the Verdusella Cave by a natural sculpture of Poseidon's face.

During the experience, we will stop to visit them and admire the emerald green waters that lap against them. We will also have the opportunity to make 2 stops of about 30 minutes for a refreshing swim in this magnificent scenery. The colours of nature and the sunlight will be reflected in the sea, creating an enchanting picture.

At the end of the visit, we will return to the starting point. The experience, including bathing stops, lasts a total of 3 hours.
