Full description

Snorkelling is a fun activity suitable for everyone that will let you discover what lies beneath the surface of the sea. Put on your mask, fins and snorkel and get up close to the marine flora and fauna on an exciting 2½-hour snorkelling tour in Portovenere.

From Lerici, in the province of La Spezia, you will board an inflatable boat to reach the best snorkelling spot. You will visit incredibly beautiful places such as Cala Byron, a natural pool near Portovenere. And then of course you will swim in the crystal-clear waters of the sea with the many fish and sea creatures. You might even spot dolphins!

This excursion will make you experience unforgettable emotions, all to be told!

What we will do

The rendezvous is in San Terenzo Lerici, in the province of La Spezia, where we will be met by our guide and skipper. We will then board a dinghy from the small port of San Terenzo and sail across the Gulf of La Spezia to Portovenere.

Once past this area, we will enter Cala Byron, a natural swimming pool from which the 5 Terre Park can be observed. We will be provided with all thenecessary snorkelling equipment (mask, fins and snorkel) and we will dive together with the guide, who will show us the underwater points of interest.

If maritime traffic conditions permit, we will then head towards the Secca del Diavolo (Devil's Bank), over which stands the statue of the Madonna. Having rounded the Secca, we will anchor near theisland of Tinetto for a stop and a swim in crystal-clear water rich in fish.

On the return route, we will discover the part behind the islands until we reach Cala dell'Ammiraglio and San Terenzo. The activity lasts a total of 2½ hours.

The excursion issuitable for everyone over the age of 6 . Nospecific skills or certification are required, the important thing is to beable to swim.
