As the only English couple on the boat, the captain spoke to us after he had done the Italian commentary to ensure that we understood the story of the Tuna fishing industry. We were also able to borrow fins and snorkels for a couple of swims in the crystal clear sea. We stopped at Scopello for a taste of Tuna... More

My husband and I were the only two Americans on the trip today and instead of feeling ostracized we felt that very appreciated and attended to by the captain and staff, they took time to ensure we got their ok, that we understood the history of the area and served a local snack. Don't bother bringing something to eat just... More

Lovely staff really make this a fantastic trip. Trips are half day trips, which is about right. Beautiful scenery down the coastline to the small, but gorgeous, Zingaro reserve. The boat stops twice to allow snorkling and swimming in the warm and crystal clear water (they provide all the snorkling gear). Lovely.

Great afternoon trip along the coast from San Vito to the Zingaro National Park. With interessting info from capitain Pippo about the area and some creative "stone-animal-spotting". Food and wine after a bit of snorkelling make this trip a really enjoyable boat trip.

The staff & management at the resort were so kind. They made sure no sharks were in close by and I was safe. I am a great swim, and they provided me with the recognition of my experience. They sure know how to make you feel alive and credit you for a good job.

Joining a cruize from San Vito to Scapello with Richard from Buena Vida was amazing. I was the only english speaking member and it was so nice of him to translate me everything from italian. Great boat, organization, snacks, wine and company made this trip unforgettable:) thank you! its really worth going with them.
