Full description

Discover the secrets of the south-east coast of theIsland of Elba with a half-day boat tour that will take you from Lacona to the Costa dei Gabbiani, passing by the mines of Capoliveri.

This is not a simple boat trip but a real journey into the history and nature of this wonderful land, led by an Environmental Guide from the Region of Tuscany.

On board the boat you can relax, admire the panorama, listen to the guide's stories and descriptions, and dive into the water for swimming and snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters.

What we will do

We will depart 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, who are always ready to give assistance and tell all the secrets of theIsland of Elba.

We will sail eastwards, very close to the coast, so that we can admire the landscape and all that it holds. We will be guided in theobservation of nature, flora and fauna, and we will be able to spot Elba's wild goats. There will be informative moments dedicated to geology and marine biology, of interest to adults and children.

We will pass the most beautiful beaches on the south-east coast, stopping several times to swim and snorkel, accompanied by an instructor who will guide us in observing marine life.

Among the various points of interest we will encounter along the way will be the Spiaggia Innamorata, the Bue Marino cave, the Punta Calamita and Capoliveri mines, the Gemini Islands and the Costa dei Gabbiani, a wild stretch characterised by sheer cliffs and unspoilt coves. The last stop will be the Gemini Islands, an ideal nesting habitat for herring gulls and Corsican seagulls.

The activity will last about four hours and will end with a return to the starting point.
