Full description

Hop aboard a comfortable 8.5-metre boat to discover the caves of Santa Maria di Leuca.

Depending on the weather conditions, the skipper will take you to either the Riviera di Ponente or the Riviera di Levante. Both coastal sides are characterised by a succession of enchanting rock caves, from the Grotta della Vora to the Grotta del Drago via the Grotta del Presepe.

During the one-and-a-half-hour tour, you will hear explanations about the natural beauty of the place, including many interesting historical details and legends.

The tour also includes a stop for a dip in the pristine Leuca sea.

What we will do

We will meet at the marina in Santa Maria di Leuca (LE), where the skipper will be waiting for us. We will immediately take our places on the comfortable 8.5-metre boat and set off for the Riviera di Levante or the Riviera di Ponente. The choice of one or the other coastal side will depend on the weather conditions of the day.

Both the Riviera di Lev ante and the Riviera di Pon ente are characterised by an enchanting landscape. In Levante, for example, we will have the opportunity to discover natural sculptures such as the Grotta della Vora and the Grotta del Laghetto. In the Ponente, on the other hand, the Grotta di Mesciu Gianni, the Grotta del Drago, the Grotta del Presepe, the Grotta del Fiume and the Grotta delle Tre Porte follow one after the other.

The tour will be made even more special by the skipper's stories and legends and the swim stop in the blue sea of Leuca. We will stop, in fact, at the penultimate cave to experience the thrill of swimming under the impressive rock walls. The chosen bathing spot is decided on a case-by-case basis according to weather conditions and the stop lasts about 20 minutes.

Once back on the boat, the tour resumes to the last cave and then returns to the starting point after about an hour and a half.

Who it is aimed at

The tour is open to everyone, with no age limit.

Children under 3 years participate free of charge.
