Discover Puglia’s most picturesque landscapes with a relaxing boat tour

With as much as 865 km of coastline, Apulia is a true wealth of beauty. The coastline alternates between sandy beaches and rocky, jagged stretches. The Gargano area in northern Apulia is characterized by white cliffs that plunge into the azure sea, creating a striking contrast of colors, complemented by bright green vegetation. Moving down the coast of Salento, you encounter caves and bays with transparent water that bring out the clarity of the seabed. Impossible to resist the urge to take a dive from the boat!

Boat tours in Salento: sea, aperitifs and fun

Salento needs no introduction. It is one of the most popular resorts in Puglia and is taken by storm every summer by tourists from all over Italy. Gallipoli and Porto Cesareo are famous among young people looking for fun, but also among lovers of kitesurfing and other water sports. Those on the Ionian side of Salento are strongly advised to book an apéritif on-board and enjoy a magnificent sunset over the sea.

Boat tours: visit the caves of Santa Maria di Leuca

Located at the tip of the Salento peninsula, Santa Maria di Leuca is one of the region’s most popular tourist resorts. Visiting its coasts by boat, both on the Ionian and Adriatic sides, you encounter numerous sea caves of legendary charm. The Grotta del Soffio is famous for the play of light and the vivid hues of the water, but Santa Maria di Leuca’s other caves are no less impressive. Choose one of the many boat tours to Leuca’s caves and get lost among the colors and beauty of these natural ravines.

Boat tours in Polignano a Mare

Polignano a Mare is another location famous for its caves. The quaint Apulian village is literally set in rock, and there are dozens of natural cavities in its surroundings. A guided tour of Polignano’s sea caves is an experience that allows you to immerse yourself in history, nature and legend. Pairing a boat tour with a tasting of typical Apulian products is absolutely recommended.

How much does a boat tour in Puglia cost?

Prices for boat tours in Apulia vary according to departure location and duration. The average price for a 2-hour boat tour is around 30 euros per person. A tour with included lunch or aperitif costs 50 to 80 euros per person. Private boat rentals, on the other hand, start at 250 euros.

Celebrate a special event with a private boat tour

A boat tour is ideal for celebrating a special event such as a bachelor/bachelorette party in style. For these kinds of occasions, a private boat can be rented and all kinds of activities can be organized, such as lunches, dinners, disco parties or fishing trips. Apulia’s sea will be a spectacular setting for your unforgettable moments! What are you waiting for?

19 Aug 2023 | Boat rental in Santa Maria di Leuca - 5.80 m, 40 HP


Alles, von Abwicklung bis Abgabe, einfach Perfekt! Man muss sich nur unbedingt daran halten, nicht näher als 150m ans Ufer bzw. die Felsen, zu fahren. Wer das nicht beachtet, wird von der freundlichen Wasserpolizei ermahnt! Zum Boot gibt es nur positives zu berichten, alles sauber, alles läuft und funktioniert tadellos. Wenn man in den Hafen wieder einfährt, wird man von jemandem an die Zapfsäulen gebracht, dieser erledigt das betanken, und man muss dann beim Tankstellenwärter bezahlen. Wir hatten 4 Stunden, und haben knapp die Hälfte des Tanks verfahren und haben 23€ bezahlt. Wir waren sehr zufrieden! Vielen Dank für das Erlebnis, die Küste selbst erkunden zu dürfen!nPS: wir waren als Familie dort, 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder. Das Bott reicht aber locker für 6 Erwachsene.

21 Sep 2023 | 3-hour boat tour in Santa Maria di Leuca

Beautiful hike

We did, my husband and I, theTour by boat along the Ionian and Adriatic side in Santa Maria di Leuca lasting 3 hours and it seemed very little for the beautiful experience. Everything was perfect, from the booking to the information to reach the pier, from the welcome to the professionalism of Captain Antonio who accompanied us with perfect explanations of the entire coastline and caves and great experience in guiding the boat. All this was accompanied by 2 baths in the wonderful waters and a final aperitif. What can I say, we would do it again every day, highly recommended.

28 Aug 2023 | Boat tour to Polignano a Mare


It was a wonderful experience, the emotion you feel when you discover the most unreachable places is inexplicable, especially if you get a skipper who is friendly, professional, but also and above all prepared and documented like Domenico. When I went into the old town centre of Polignano and looked out onto the balconies I felt more 'in touch' with the caves than before this fantastic experience. Swimming then offshore was really unique. My little girl was also delighted to have had this adventure. Thanks Domenico, we will definitely repeat it💯

Super Bootsvermietung

Wir haben Livios Boot für einen halben Tag gemietet und können ihn nur weiterempfehlen. Das Boot ist sehr modern und gepflegt, hat ein Sonnendach, mehrere Sitzmäglichkeiten und eine kleine Liegefläche vorne.nLivio hat sich die Zeit genommen das Boot zu erklären und gute Anweisungen für die Fahrt zu geben.nnDer Ausflug vor die Küste war traumhaft und man konnte immer wieder Ankerlegen zum Schwimmen. Das Meer war klar und blau und hier und da waren ein paar Fischchen zu sehen.nWir waren 4 Personen und hatten gut Platz auf dem Boot.

02 Sep 2021 | Sailing boat day tour with lunch in S. Maria di Leuca

Come on Antonio and his staff

Wonderful sailing trip around the coast, including pleasant stops for diving into the sea and swimming visits to caves. We recommend goggles and masks to see the wonderful fish on the seabed. A round of applause to Antonio and staff who made the excursion unique with interesting stories and explanations, and an excellent aperitif followed by tomato and mussel pasta and pepata di cozze for lunch. Fresh water for rinsing off the salt, changing rooms for changing, an atmospheric hammock on deck, and top-notch cleanliness.

29 Aug 2023 | Boat trip to San Foca with aperitif

Excellent service

From the moment of booking everything went well. Immediately after booking I receive a confirmation email with Mauro's phone number who is always quick in answering. The tour is very pleasant. Two and a half hours along the coast between San Foca and Sant'Andrea. Two bathroom stops of about half an hour (Torre Dell'Orso and Sant'Andrea). The boat is a very comfortable 8-metre boat, unlike other proposals in the area that use dinghies. Mauro is very helpful, organised and friendly. Highly recommended.
