Each with stories and secrets to tell, which thecrew will not fail to reveal!

Our journey will continue to Santa Maria di Leuca, Punta Meliso, the Leuca Lighthouse, the Grotta Tenda degli Indiani, the Grotta del Soffio, the Grotta dell'Orto Cupo and the Grotta della Cattedrale. All the way to the Mannute Complex, which marks the boundary of our exploration on the Adriatic side.

In the course of the navigation, there will be 2 swimming stops lasting 30 minutes each, both in beautiful natural settings. An aperitif of fresh fruit and non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks will be served on board (included).
