We loved the 3 hour Alimini boat trip - with beautiful coastline and stunning turquoise water especially at the 2 swim stops which are in 3 metre deep water but buoyancy vests and rings are available. Lorenzo and his father are friendly and professional. We really appreciated Lorenzo taking the time to provide separate English commentary to us, the only non Italian speakers on board. The boat is comfortable, and clean, with a shade canopy out the back and sun deck up top or out the front. The simple aperitivo at the 2nd swim stop was also nice. I would not hesitate to recommend this trip if you are in Otranto.

This was a fantastic way to spend the morning in Otranto. We had two swimming spots where one could swim to the caves. The guide, Lorenzo, spoke impeccable English and gave commentary about history and the landscape. By far our favourite activity in the area.

We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon we spent cruising the coast with the crew of the Hydra. The younger man spoke very good English and made sure that we (the only English on board) thoroughly understood all the safety aspects and then all the sights we passed. My husband swam from the boat at each of the stops and made the most of them. It is very good value for money: the cruise, the stops and the prosecco made it most enjoyable.

Booked this trip through the Hotel Palazzo Papaleo at the last minute. As it was early in the season there were only around 10 people on the trip which is run by a lovely father and son team, both of whom took the time to give us a detailed commentary on the coast line as we travelled along. There was time to stop for swimming and whilst it was too cold for me,my husband took to the crystal clear waters. Snacks and drinks were provided during the stop. Would recommend these friendly guys and their lovely boat if visiting the area

We nearly missed it due to confusion over departure time do be sure to phone and check. But it's worth it. Lovely swimming stops, friendly, informative guide speaks English. Prosecco and snacks served on board. Well worth 25EUR for our 3hour trip north to Alimini.

The journey along the North coast of Otranto is just wonderful: the sea has the color of the Caribbean Sea. The best way to explore this area is of course by sea. I booked this boat trip which started at 10 am. The boat is very comfortable: there are sunny parts for sun bathing, shady parts which you prefer this. carpet to walk an. and cushions everywhere.
The boat stops twice for snorkeling/ swimming breaks and the boat is well equipped to get in and out off the water.
During the trip Antonio's son offers explanations and explains why the water has such an amazing color.
The atmosphere on board is very relaxing and welcoming.
I can only highly recommend this trip to anybody!

We did the 3 hour tour from Otranto to Alimini and it was really nice. The two swim stops were very beautiful and lots of information given on the way. The customer service and professionalism of the crew is amazing and that’s what made the tour 5 stars!

We had a great day with Lorenzo and his dad! We’ve spend six hours on the boat and had a great trip with an awesome view over the coast of Otranto. The water was warm and crystal clear. In total we had three 45min stops to swim and to enjoy the the great food on board. The boat has a nice roof top that invites for chilling and suntanning. All in all, a killer trip!
