    • We are located at Sperlonga's Harbour. With the Truglia Tower behind you, we are located on the right side, where you will first find the office and then the reception along the promenade on the pier (the last desk on the left). Attention: we are in a limited traffic area (ZTL). We recommend parking at "Parking delle vite", a private car park located at the south entrance of Sperlonga. From there you can reach us taking a shuttle that will bring you directly to us. If the desk is occupied you will have to wait your turn because the desks next to you, even if very close, represents other organizations that cannot manage your reservation. Arrival 15 minutes early is required to formalize boarding procedures. No delay will be tolerated for the scheduled departure at the established time.
    • The snorkeling equipment that is shown in some photos is not owned by us, but belongs to the summer camp that takes part in our excursions. Therefore we will not provide that type of model.
    • On request it is possible, for large groups, to organize the tour for more than 12 people up to 100 at the same time using several boats at our disposal or a single larger one. For such large groups, make individual reservations of 15 people (maximum bookable number) in sequence up to the desired number.
    • We recommend the experience in the morning compared to the afternoon one because the sea is always calmer. In fact, it can happen that in the afternoon in a short time the sea can get agitated due to mistral winds and in those cases the Tour has to be canceled with little notice for the guests.
    • Note: The snorkel (for hygiene reasons also related to covid) is not included, the traveler must bring it.
    • This experience requires good weather. If it’s canceled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund
    • This experience requires a minimum number of travelers. If it’s canceled because the minimum isn’t met, you’ll be offered a different date/experience or a full refund
    • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 100 travelers

    • For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.

      Not to be missed.
      We had an amazing trip along the coast on our Riviera di Ulisse tour. Operator was so good and in addition to seeing such a beautiful part of Italy we wouldn’t have otherwise, we learned so much history. Lunch was perfect. One of the best, most relaxing things we did in Italy. Thank you! Very easy to find the boat. Someone was waiting as we walked down to the harbor.

      Must do on your trip to Sperlonga!!
      Me and my mom had the best time! Paulo, our boat captain, was super friendly and made the experience so memorable. They provided pizza and Prosecco halfway through which was delicious. Would absolutely do this again.

      Great little excursion when visiting Gaeta or Sperlonga
      Great tour and educated guides. Really cool to swim in some amazing spots off the boat. Had a nice family atmosphere to it and was accommodating. Worth the money and the day trip!

      Very Very nice day on boat in Sperlonga
      A very very nice day exploring caves and beaches: that's the most fun thing we've did in Sperlonga. We just rent a boat from guys at Sperlonga Escursioni down the little harbour and spent a whole day along Riviera di Ulisse. So fun and easy to drive, you actually don't need a licence. We were so lucky with a very hot day, the weather wasn't so promising days before. Staff was amazing and super helpful, they told us how to drive and whats to visit, even gave us advice on best spots to dive! Super-recommended!!!!

      Holiday with family
      An incredible experience! From the booking with very helpful assistance through WhatsApp (few minutes for a reply) to the planning of the boats where you get called and escorted to the boat. On the boat there was space and the captain was very generous on sharing all the stories of the Roman route and villa along the coast, stopping for a dive in cleae blue Sea! Such amazing experience! Strongly recommended!!

      Recommended half day trip
      We decided to book this 4.5 hour trip on the recommendation of some other people staying in our hotel. It was a great trip cruising from Sperlonga towards Gaeta with lots of interesting things to see on the way. There were lots of stops to swim but as we are not swimmers, we just sat back and relaxed and watched the others being energetic. On our cruise there were 10 people which was perfect and they served prosecco and pizza too so what could be better?

      Fantastic day out
      This tour was amazing, I highly recommend doing it. Our tour guide, Vincenzo, was fantastic and he spoke English really well. He was also very knowledgeable of the region and always made sure we were having a good time. The highlight was swimming in caves and the beautiful clear waters.

      Great value for the money!
      Guide was Vincenzo, he was friendly and professional. It was a good tour, for the money it was great value. Pros: Great swimming, beautiful grottos, friendly host. Cons: Could have used more historical facts about the sights, water/food was minimal.

      A FUN & peaceful & adventurous experience
      We did the 4.5 hour tour. This tour was AMAZING!!! We had such a friendly and attentive captain (Vincenzo). The views were absolutely beautiful. Cannot think of a better way to spend a day in Italy! Had a great time swimming, exploring, and relaxing in the boat. We really recommend!! We decided to make this a day trip from Rome and we are so thankful because it ended up being our favorite day on our trip!

      Awesome fun day!
      My girls (18 and 14) loved the whole day. Our guide Vincent showed us the beautiful sights and shared history. The girls loved swimming to the caves and the beach. This is a family hit — when even teenage are engaged and not bored!

      Wonderful day on the Water!
      We loved out boating day with Sperlonga Escursioni! Our group of 11 had the boat to ourselves and we had a wonderful day boating from Sperlonga to Gaeta! The company was great to communicate with prior to the date of our excursion.

      Cool adventure
      We loved our tour. Paulo was very kind and took us to beautiful spots during our trip. I enjoyed diving and had a lot of fun diving in the caves and exploring the crystalline waters of the Tyrrhenian sea. The temperature of the waters in this period of June / July was suitable, even for someone who lives on the northeastern coast of Brazil. In addition, we enjoyed an excellent pizza during our stop in Gaeta. Sperlonga is a beautiful and charming city, and we want to return the next time.

      Perfect afternoon at sea
      Very efficient. We had a great boat ride with a dinghy that fully met our expectations. We enjoyed a sunny afternoon at sea, Be aware that parking is a hassle in the area and we had to leave the car in the centre of the village.

    Beautiful experience professionally delivered by the team escursioni.
    Big thank you to Captain Paolo and Luciano who welcomed us and put us at ease starting from the booking process till the end of the boat trip.
    Soon after booking (late in the evening) the team got in touch by email to discuss few details and confirm reservation, which is great.
    Captain Paolo made the trip even more pleasant with knowledgeable top-notch explanation of surrounding areas, cliff and caves. Paolo’s passion and dedication for his role really makes the trip an unforgettable.
    Looking forward to next trip and keep up the good work.

    Nice boat trip, good guide, relaxing trip.
    The 90 minutes boat trip costs 25 €/person and inkludes 30 min trip to the cave and then option to swim and dive in the cave for 30 minutes before the returen. Also some good attractions explained by the guide/captain.

    We had a party of 10 people on board the mini cruise and we lucked out with a "private" boat tour of the blue grotto. This is a MUST DO if you are spending time in Naples or Rome. Sperlonga is easy to get to via train and bus and seeing the town via the water is unforgettable. The staff is amazing and takes care of their passengers by encouraging the little ones to jump in the water and be brave to swim to the grotto. The price is right for this breathtaking cruise. It was a relaxing way to spend our last day in Italy after a 12 day trip in many cities.

    Beautiful coastal cruise. Got to swim for 30 mins in the blue cave which was incredible. The guide was very friendly and made a lot of effort to speak English with us as everyone else on the boat was Italian. He was very funny and brought us into the dark parts of the cave too. I also asked him if I could jump off the boat and without hesitation he said of course. We had such a fun time. I would recommend it to everyone. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

    The first time we arrived for the Mini Cruise, it was unfortunately canceled due to bad weather.

    Fortunately, we were able to easily make another appointment. We stayed in Anzio which was an hour and a half drive to Sperlonga.

    Made the long car tour twice but it was well worth it. A very nice experience and definitely recommended! I think the pictures speak for themselves. 😉

    Really enjoyed this super beautiful Mini Cruise together with my boyfriend! Also super friendly and helpful staff.

    TIP: Bring your own diving mask, or buy it at a local store! The water is very clear, it’s worth the money. We saw a octopus 🐙 and a lot of fishes!

    The cruise was beautiful and Vincenzo (our boat driver) was especially friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Luigi also adjusted our time slot when we accidentally booked a full slot. The whole experience was fantastic. Would recommend to all to experience it for yourself!

    We spent a Fabulous afternoon in the boat which drives us to the beautiful blue cave. The driver of the boat was very kind, and gave us full of explanations of the story of the region. He let us drive his boat and it was very funny 😄.
    We spent a Beautiful moment.
    We recommend you to do this activity.
    Again thanks for the kindness and the smile 😊 of the boat driver.
    Have a good summer.

    We had a beautiful time today discovering the coast near Sperlonga at a gentle pace yet filled with interesting sites and great swimming. We dived a few times from the boat and even from the higher diving point. The beach and old town of Sperlonga are a delight. I'd recommend making a day of it.

    We decided to have a beach day after all of our walking in Rome & chose Sperlonga after reading reviews. I added on this 90 min boat ride for our family of 4. We had a great time learning some history of the area while also taking a 30 minute dip in clear blue water & exploring a cave/grotto.

    Staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Water is the most beautiful blue! Tour ran perfectly on time and historical aspects very interesting. Swim was refreshing. Warning to Americans used to boat tours in Caribbean - no equipment provided except pool noodles. (None promised, but one can get spoiled in other parts of the world)
