Full description

If you are on holiday in the Land of Bari , you cannot miss the boat tour among the Polignano a Mare caves that have formed along the coast.

You will be in the company of an experienced and professional skipper who will let you explore the marvellous caves by skirting the high cliffs and letting you dive into the emerald water to discover them up close.

You will also be offered a tasty aperitif with which you can toast the experience and the beautiful landscapes you will have encountered. You won't need to bring anything except the enthusiasm of discovering a wonderful territory!

What we will do

The rendezvous is set in the charming marina of Cala Ponte Marina in Polignano a Mare. The skipper will welcome us on board a spacious and elegant motor boat, and once we are all on board, we can set off.

The size of the boat will allow us to explore Polignano's most famous and beautiful caves such as the ever-present Grotta Palazzese, the solitary and always fascinating Scoglio dell'Eremita, and the enchanting Grotta dell'Amore.

There will also be landings in more unusual views where we can admire the fantastic play of light created by the sun's rays filtering through the rocks and meeting the sea. We will also see the statue of Domenico Modugno from the perspective of the sea and be able to dive in front of marvellous coves. We will also be able to snorkel using the masks available on board the boat.

During the return trip, we can enjoy a tasty aperitif of Apulian tarallini, chips and prosecco, while children will be served a non-alcoholic drink. With a bit of luck we might see cute dolphins swimming close by or feeding the seagulls.

With the sunset tour you will be able to admire the wonderful landscape of Polignano a Mare tinged with warm orange hues making the atmosphere romantic, while with the evening tours you can experience the unique emotion of swimming in the dark, diving into the blue waters.

The total duration of the excursion will be about an hour and a half, and we will return to the starting point where we will have showers and changing rooms.

The tour is suitable for everyone from 1 year of age. Children up to 5 years of age participate free of charge.
