This has to be one of the best water tours ever. We were 4 hours exploring the Nature Preserve of Zingaro, which means gypsy but it also refers to Mafiosi who hid out in hillside caves during difficult times. The waters are crystal clear and warm in September and our. Snorkeling and swimming were the best ever although not that... More

Fantastic trip to the reserve with two stops for snorkeling. The water was an amazing color of blue and turquoise which provided great viewing with or without a mask/snorkel. The captain and guide were friendly and helpful in providing english commentary throughout the trip. It was interesting to try the additional tastes of red tuna and highly recommended. Overall, the... More

As the only English couple on the boat, the captain spoke to us after he had done the Italian commentary to ensure that we understood the story of the Tuna fishing industry. We were also able to borrow fins and snorkels for a couple of swims in the crystal clear sea. We stopped at Scopello for a taste of Tuna... More

My husband and I were the only two Americans on the trip today and instead of feeling ostracized we felt that very appreciated and attended to by the captain and staff, they took time to ensure we got their ok, that we understood the history of the area and served a local snack. Don't bother bringing something to eat just... More

Lovely staff really make this a fantastic trip. Trips are half day trips, which is about right. Beautiful scenery down the coastline to the small, but gorgeous, Zingaro reserve. The boat stops twice to allow snorkling and swimming in the warm and crystal clear water (they provide all the snorkling gear). Lovely.

Great afternoon trip along the coast from San Vito to the Zingaro National Park. With interessting info from capitain Pippo about the area and some creative "stone-animal-spotting". Food and wine after a bit of snorkelling make this trip a really enjoyable boat trip.
