What people are saying about Tropea

It was excelent!! We booked the experience 15 mins before the departing time so we were nervous there would be a problem with that but there was none at all on the other hand, even though you know it’ll be fun from the moment you read the description of the activity, it ends up being even better. Captain Paolo and his team were super friendly and fun, the food was really good and not scarce at all (and neither were the alcoholic drinks haha), and the energy altogether was spectacular. And of course, the views of the city/mountains + the fish while you snorkel… we felt like we were in a movie on several occasions!! Very italian and dreamy experience. Thank you! Hopefully we can do it again some time.

Great Tour From a Tuscany tour guide I can say that it was a great boat tour. Three hours sailing through crystal clear waters with stops in the most beautiful bays. Possibility to swim surrounded by hundreds of fish, also on the boat you can find masks that you can use. The aperitif was abundant and rich with local products and drinks of all kinds. Captain Paolo very nice and the guide also gave interesting information.

Visiting 3 islands and seeing from close real time eruptions of the volcano Stromboli. Great! Improvement points: you cannot pay by card on the boat so take cash. Also, the italian guide did not speak proper english and we did not understand the explanations

Excellent tour. Highly recommended. Very helpful and informative guides and lovely food.

Schöner und kompakter Tagesausflug! Wir haben auch Delfine gesehen! sehr glücklich
