Full description

A volcano can be so much more. As in the case of Vulcano, an island!

Join our speedboat tour and explore this island of theAeolian archipelago by sea. There will also be a stop on land for a complete exploration.

A 7-hour skippered experience, discovering explosive natural attractions (not literally)!

What we will do

We will meet 10 minutes before 10 a.m. at the meeting point in Lipari (ME). I am the skipper and I will welcome you on board my boat!

From here we will begin our navigation, which will take us in the direction of theisland of Vulcano. During the first part of the tour we will sail along the western side of Lipari admiring the Grotta degli Angeli, the Faraglioni, the Scoglio di Papa Giovanni, the Scoglio della Mummia, the Scoglio Cacato and make a first bathing stop.

We will stop for a second swim at Cala Formaggio and then take a motorboat to the entrance of the Grotta del Cavallo and reach the Piscina di Venere. We will then stop at Praia Longa for yet another swimming stop, before reaching the fishing village of Gelso, where we will stop for a 2-hour shore break; on this occasion we recommend lunch in a small restaurant with a sea view.

We will return on board to resume sailing towards the Allume Caves and finally reach the port of Vulcano, where we will stop for a 2-hour shore break. Our last bathing stop will be at Praia Ferrante, before saying goodbye to the Aeolian Islands archipelago.

We will finally return to the meeting point at 17:00; the experience lasts a total of 7 hours.
