Full description

Enjoy the crystal-clear sea of Salento with aboat trip from Torre Vado to Santa Maria di Leuca and discover the natural and architectural beauty of this stretch of coastline.

You will visit the numerous sea caves, natural inlets, and enchanting bays with clear blue water, where it is impossible to resist the urge to dive in.

You will spend three and a half hours in total relaxation and, to round off the experience in the best possible way, you will be served an aperitif of typical Apulian products. Get ready to get on board!

What we will do

The appointment is at the port of Torre Vado (LE), 30 minutes before the time indicated in the booking.

After boarding and an introductory briefing, we will start sailing towards Santa Maria di Leuca. The crew will keep us constantly informed about the points of interest we will encounter along the way.

We start with the ancient Saracen tower of Torre Vado and then sail along magnificent beaches and cliffs. The landscape changes as we pass from the Ionian Sea to the Adriatic Sea and, as we approach Leuca, we encounter the first sea caves, some of which can be visited inside, such as the Grotta del Drago.

Arriving in front of the Santa Maria di Leuca marina, we will pause to observe the villas and the lighthouse, listening to the stories and legends that characterise this place. Then we will continue sailing towards other caves, bays and inlets until we reach the Grotta della Vora.

We will make two stops for swimming and on the way back we will be served an aperitif of wine and typical Apulian products. In total, the activity will last about 3½ hours.
