Full description

Fancy venturing between unspoilt landscapes, film sets and ancient legends? The Cilento mini cruise is the experience for you.

An8-hour excursion awaits you to discover all the natural beauties of the Cilento, including caves, rocks, lighthouses, bays and crystal-clear waters in which to dive.

It will be a journey between nature and culture, during which you will discover some of the places made famous by the film 'Welcome to the South', explore theisland of Licosa where a mermaid seduced Ulysses , and visit the seaside village of Acciaroli, the inspiration for Hemingway's novel'The Old Man and the Sea'.

What we will do

We will meet at the port of Agropoli 15 minutes before the indicated time, to begin our excursion at 10:00 am sharp. After boarding, we will immediately set off on our Cilento mini-cruise.

During the cruise we will admire Punta Fortino, the Grotta dell'Elefante and the Lighthouse, and then pass by the Scoglio di San Francesco and the Scoglio di Trentova. We will first swim to the beautiful Baia del Saùco, with its ancient Roman port, for snorkelling and a coffee break, then head to Punta Tresino for a visit to theProtected Marine Area of Santa Maria di Castellabate.

From here we will head towards Cala S. Giovanni, Punta Pagliarolo and the abandoned village of Trezeni, on whose promontory a temple dedicated to Poseidon once stood. Then it will be the turn of some of the places made famous by the film"Benvenuti al Sud", such as the Zona Lago and Santa Maria le Gatte, the Pozzillo beach and the Greco-Roman port of San Marco di Castellabate.

The excursion will continue towards the fascinating Punta Licosa, a paradisiacal corner and unmissable destination in the Cilento National Park. We will circumnavigate the island, discovering the myths surrounding it: Licosa owes its name to the mermaid Leucosia, who tried to seduce Ulysses and his fleet with her song. From Licosa we will sail towards the Bay of Ogliastro, arriving at 12:30 at Ripe Rosse, where we will make a second swimming stop with snorkelling and a tasting of local products.

The next stop will be Acciaroli, where we will disembark to visit the ancient fishing village that has always welcomed travellers and sailors. It was here that Ernest Hemingway, in the 1950s, met a local fisherman known as 'u vecchio'. This encounter was the inspiration for what later became his best-known work: 'The Old Man and the Sea'.

Around 15:00 we will depart from the port of Acciaroli for a third and final bathing stop on the island of Licosa, where we will enjoy drinks and a typical local cake.

We will reach the Port of Agropoli at 18:00, after an 8-hour excursion.
