Cancellation policy

Coves and Caves Galore

Set your sails towards the North Coast, where you will encounter the Cappuccini cave. Keep your cameras ready as you pass in front of a dolphin-shaped rock before continuing sailing into the Coral cave, whose walls are covered by cascading red coral, making it a truly admirable sight. There will be a brief pause at the Grotta Dell’Amore, where you can get off the boat and click a few pictures. You can later collect these pictures from the tour operator's office.

Next up is the largest cave on the Syracuse coast, the Grotta Delle Stallatiti, where you will see some of nature’s marvels. The walls of these caves are covered with shapes and colors created naturally by the force of water and the retained moisture on the stone. Enjoy some delicious Prosecco here before beginning the return journey.

Witness a Glowing Syracuse Sunset

Enjoy the swim stop near Maniace Castle as you wait for the breathtaking sunset. Lose yourself in melodious music while passing under the historic, stone Umbertino Bridge on your way back to the embarkation point.
