Then it's time to cruise out to the high sea. Out here, you can admire the imposing lighthouse of Bari. If you're lucky, you'll spot dolphins who often come up close to the boat. If you'd like, the skipper will even give you the opportunity to temporarily maneuver the boat yourself.

Your skipper will cast anchor at the old navy of Bari where you'll be able to take another swim and take panoramic photos of the promenade.

Our captain was excellent. He allowed all who wanted to take turns piloting. Unlike many of these trips where the sails are for show only, we were under sail all afternoon. Took short break for wine, great snacks and swim. Would highly recommend this tour and especially this captain. By far this was the highlight of our 6 week European adventure.

Umberto and his girlfriend were great, super The only thing is the directions to the meeting point we’re not crear, it should say Bari port, Vitoria port! Other than that amazing!!!!!!

Very nice trip on a very nice boat. Vito is an enthusiastic and funny guide, I would definitely book this trip once again. Thanks for the great experience!!
