Our catamaran trip with snorkeling allows you to see the Marine Protected Area of Porto Cesareo in comfort, sunbathing and swimming while enjoying the amazing sea of Salento. And to round off the tour in the best possible way, a typical Apulian apéritif awaits you after one of our snorkeling stops!

As soon as we start navigating, we head straight to Rabbit Island, which we will circumnavigate before heading for the romantic Isola a Cuore (Heart Island). In this area, in front of the imposing Chianca Tower, we make our first snorkeling stop of about 20 minutes at the archaeological site of the Roman Columns, which can be admired on the sandy seabed at a depth of about 4 metres.

After the stop, our journey continues to the northern part of the coast until we reach the submerged statue of the Madonna dei Naviganti, where we stop again for a swim. After about 20 minutes, we head back to the last of the Saracen Towers on our tour, the fascinating Torre Lapillo. At this point, we will reverse course and drop anchor in the crystal clear waters of the Isola della Malva lagoon for our final stop. While you are in the water, our staff will prepare an excellent Apulian apéritif based on typical products and local wines, which you will be able to taste in a unique setting, before heading back to Porto Cesareo.
