Full description
Depart from the port of Tropea and sail along the beautiful coastline of Calabria. Stop underneath the Church Sanctuary of Saint Mary dell' Isola di Tropea, which is built on a cliff overlooking the glimmering blue sea. Visit the local "Blue Grotto" notable for its transparent waters. Arrive at Formicoli, a beach area that was once the location of an Ancient Roman port. Stop alongside the beach and use the snorkeling gear provided to explore the underwater world. Arrive at the promontory of Capo Vaticano and admire the lighthouse located on this narrow spit of land. Visit the wonderful white beach of Praia I Focu, where you can swim or relax for a short time on the beach. Returning towards Tropea, make a final stop at the small Bay of Riaci for some more snorkeling before arriving back at the port.

If you have little time, it allows you to see and swim in different beaches and above all to avoid the crowds that are in August in beaches like those of Capo Vaticano! We were very lucky, there was a wonderful weather and in addition to seeing the Aeolian Islands, Sicily and Etna were also seen.

The boat experience is very nice. The Calabrian coast of that side offers breathtaking views and crystal clear sea, of a blue / green without envying anything to the well-known Sardinia. The only negative note ... is that they offer you a snorkeling trip but there is nothing to see with snorkeling. There are no particular sea beds or marine fauna of any species. In addition, the bath at the blue grotto is only 1 km away. Here are these things it would be more honest to tell them when booking to avoid unnecessary expectations. For the rest ... the splendor of the sea alone is worth the experience

Good value for money. It was a nice boat tour with 3 stops for swimming. The staff was very friendly and created a good mood. Unfortunately, little was explained in English (the description said that the tour is also offered in English). Only very scarce and mostly only on demand.
