Full description

Step aboard a modern motor boat and take a sea break to discover the unique coastline of the Zingaro Nature Reserve. You will sail for 4 hours along a wild and unspoilt stretch of coastline with sheer cliffs, rock caves and a crystal clear sea rich in flora and fauna.

The boat will make an initial swim stop at Cala dell'Uzzo and you will be able to dive into the Grotta degli Innamorati. You will have the unique experience of swimming inside a sea cave and lying for a moment on its small beach.

After the stop, the boat will head towards the massive Faraglioni of Scopello. There will be a guide on board to explain the history and legends of these enchanting places. Also included in the excursion is a tasty aperitif with typical Sicilian products to be enjoyed overlooking the sea.

What we will do

We will meet in San Vito Lo Capo, where the boat that will accompany us on our excursion awaits us. After settling on board, we will head for the Zingaro Nature Reserve: 7 wonderful kilometres of coastline dominated by wild and enchanting nature.

We cannot help but admire the contrast of colours between the blue and emerald green of the sea and the white pebble beaches, framed by the Mediterranean maquis. Not to mention the magnificent cliffs rising several metres above the sea and the many caves with their entrances carved into the rock. Not only that, our guide on board will tell us about the area, dwelling on the interesting legends that hover over the Zingaro Nature Reserve.

We will stop at one of the most beautiful beaches in the Reserve: Cala dell'Uzzo. Here we will have the truly unique experience of diving from the boat withsnorkelling equipment (included) to swim inside the Lovers' Cave. We will explore its pristine seabed and swim to the small beach inside the cave.

After returning on board, the boat will head towards the majestic Faraglioni of Scopello, which emerge from the water with their rich vegetation. The two stacks act as sentinels of the beautiful bay that was once a rich tuna fishery. Today, this corner of the coast is considered a paradise for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts. Here we will make a second swim stop lasting about 30 minutes.

Not only beautiful nature and crystal clear sea, our excursion also includes the nice surprise of a tasty aperitif on board with typical Sicilian products, including pane cunzato, primosale cheese, seasoned olives, wine and water. Once the sea-view aperitif is over, the boat will head back to San Vito Lo Capo.

The excursion will last four hours.
