Great tour, 1 hour and 30 minutes, perfect time. The caves are amazing. The only thing is that they should have a juice or soda for the children. Highly recommended!

Cruise Through the Polignano's Iconic Caves on a Boat

Embark on the Mediterranean Sea with your expert skipper to explore the Polignano a Mare caves. Go through 23 famous caverns that can only be reached by boat on the 90-min adventure. Spend some time exploring Polignano's largest cave, the Grotta Palazzese, which is one of the "7 scenic wonders of the world". Sail to the Ardito cave that is lit naturally, and the vivid hues on the walls are generated by bright sunrays piercing the rocks. The Port'alga Cave, Lover's Cave, and others are also accessible by boat.

Where the Sea and Sun Meet

Catch sight of the statue of legendary musician Domenico Modugno on the Polignano coast as you sail. Visit the island of San Paolo, located in the Polignano's southeast corner, while exploring the caverns. The island, also known as Scoglio dell'Eremita, offers a spectacular seascape perfect for snapping pictures. Grab your swimwear at the end of your voyage and dip in the stunning turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Soak in the soft sunlight as you rest on the deck, sipping on bubbly prosecco and relishing some light snacks. So much to savor, right?
