Full description

Discover the secrets of the south-west coast of theIsland of Elba with a boat tour that will take you from Lacona-Capoliveri to the Grotta Azzurra.

This tour is much more than a simple boat trip, it is a real journey of discovery of the island's nature, flora and fauna, led by a Tuscany Region Environmental Guide.

So let yourself be lulled by the waves, relax, listen to the guide's tales, dive into the clear waters for snorkelling, and spend half a day among nature, sport and relaxation!

What we will do

We will set sail at 9:00 am from the small port of Margidore, in Lacona - Capoliveri (LI). The boat can accommodate a maximum of 12 people, so a small group to enjoy the experience to the full and interact with the crew, always ready to provide assistance and tell all the secrets of theIsland of Elba.

We will sail west, staying as close to the coast as possible so that we can observe the landscape well. Along the way, the guide will entertain us with explanations of the most interesting naturalistic, geological and marine biology aspects.

We will stop several times for swimming and snorkelling, under the supervision of the instructor who will point out the best spots to observe marine life. We will visit the Grottina dell'Acqua, the Grotta del Vescovo, the Grotta Azzurra, where we will be able to swim inside, and finally the Scoglio della Triglia.

The activity will last approximately 4 hours and will end with a return to the starting point.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an easy level and is open to everyone from 4 years old and up. It is not necessary to know how to swim, you just need to be comfortable with the water given the swimming and snorkelling stops.

The boat is not wheelchair accessible.
