We had a fantastic and unforgettable full day boat trip from La Spezia to Cinque Terre. The weather was fantastic and we were only 7 people plus our English-speaking skipper, Andrea, on the boat. Everyone spoke English – US and Australia, so the discussions and conversation went happily. Andrea sailed close to all the towns so we could capture the moments with our camera. We anchored at "Monterosso Al Mare", where we went swimming with the fish. Andrea served a light lunch consisting of sardines, Italian sausage, cheese, tomatoes, focaccia bread and wine. There was beer and water ad libitum during the entire sailing trip. On the way back to La Spezia there was time for sunbathing and an extra swim on the approach to La Spezia - it was wonderful. We can only give this full-day boat trip our best recommendations.

Really friendly team of captains & skippers. The view from the water to the coast is incredible, we enjoyed it very much. It was a fantastic trip with mare, view, italian food and nice people.

We loved our boat trip! Andrea was friendly and knowledgeable. The swim was refreshing in a gorgeous setting. They fed us lunch and Prosecco. It was a highlight of our trip to Cinque Terre!

Wonderful tour. The only negative note is the absence of a guide to illustrate places and tell the history and / or characteristics of the places. I advise

Great day on sailboat. Very friendly skipper. Description faithful to what was proposed.
