If you choose the 3-hour option the catamaran will stop in the bay of Playa Espagueti and you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling off the boat.

There was a bit of confusion at the beginning because you have to go to the office near pier 4 to collect your pass and it was not very clear. But then the tour was a lot of fun. The catamaran is spacious enough for the number of people and they offered us drinks and a sandwich. We saw some dolphins very closely after a bit of trying. The bath near the "Spiaggia degli Spaghetti" was fun even if you didn't see much with the mask. There was a basket with assorted masks and snorkels a little luck but enough for a quick wallow. In general, however, it was a pleasant and well organized tour. It was definitely worth the ticket price.

Very nice and calm crew! The catamaran had a seat for everyone including drinks and snacks. We saw a family of pilot whales and followed them a bit and saw them a second time! A really nice experience! For the sensitive stomach, however, such a sea voyage is a rehearsal because you also bob up and down without a motor for a while, which probably not everyone can handle...

nice boat trip, during the 3 hour trip there was free food and drinks on board, also the swim stop was nice and long enough. The sea was very wild but that is of course different from day to day. We were warned about this in advance. Recommended! the only downside is that there is no place on the boat to lie down, but this would not have been an option with us because of the wild sea.
