Full description
The Sunken City of Baiae, located in the heart of Phlegraean Fields, is one of the oldest archaeological sites in the world. Its history dates back to Roman times, when it became submerged due to bradyseismic activity. From your canoe, explore the nymphs of Punta Epitaffio, which was a banquet room belonging to Emperor Claudio, and discover the submerged remains of trading ports and Roman fleets. Today, Baiae is considered one of the best places for snorkeling and diving in the world. Upon arrival you will have the time to put on the necessary gear and be given some useful tips from your instructor. On shore you will find the transparent canoes ready for your excursion and a professional guide will give you a brief introduction to the history and archaeology of the Park before you begin your sail. Admire archaeological ruins, fauna, flora and volcanic remains from The Underwater Archaeological Park of Baiae, dating back to 2000 years ago, through your canoe. At the end of the excursion you will have some free time to sail wherever you wish.

... a really impressive excursion with professional support

Exploring Roman villas under the sea with a glass-bottom canoe - that was a real experience! After we couldn't find the right diving school at the beginning, we got great support from Get Your Guide, so that we could finally enjoy the excursion with a little delay. Many thanks to the team!

Disappointing, disorganised and unprofessional

We booked our trip 2 days in advance. We were then contacted by the local supplier who asked if we minded changing the day because of availability problems. We agreed and were told new details would be sent.They weren't and we had to request them.Late the night before our trip we received a text informing us the time had changed to 10.30. We arrived promptly however nobody was there. The guide arrived at 11.10 with no apology and walked straight past us to get changed.He then waffled on for a few minutes and it was obvious he was not that knowledgeable. We went to the canoe's and again had to wait for oars and vests while the guide sped off in his boat. We paddled out to sea to meet him and basically watched him snorkel. He did point out a wall, columns and a mosaic floor, in-between answering his phone and texting. We then had to paddle straight back as he was being stung by jelly fish. Don't waste your money with these cowboy's.
