Excursion in Catamaran for the Zingaro Nature Reserve and the Scopello Tonnara
Our mini cruises to the Zingaro and Scopello are made twice a day: in the morning from 9.30 to 13.30 and in the afternoon from 15.00 to 19.00. It starts from the small tourist pier, the pier immediately to the left of the beach of San Vito lo Capo. Leaving the moorings is now an adventure!
Facilitated by the technical characteristics of the catamarans, and by the special diving licenses owned by us, we will make the whole excursion very close to the coast, both in navigation and in the stops for snorkeling activities and for a simple bathroom. Finished along the white beach of San Vito lo Capo, called the "White Pearl of Sicily", just after Punta Levante, we will meet one of the Saracen towers along the coast: Torre Scieri. A little further on will appear the Tonnara del Secco and along the Firriato we will slow down at its end to admire one of the most evocative places of the territory: the Lake of Venus. After passing the 'Mpiso Tower (another Saracen tower) and the underlying village of the same name will start the Zingaro Reserve which will immediately show us its first Cala: Cala Tonnarella dell'Uzzo, then Cala Torre Uzzo.
Along the coast of the Reserve, we will stop for the first stop to admire the beauties that are offered to us above and below the sea, in fact, available to our guests, we will offer free use of masks and fins to carry out snorkeling. In fact, just inside the Zingaro Reserve and not only, we have identified several underwater routes to explore even without using the self-breathing apparatus. Everyone can be a diver!
After spending 30/40 minutes at the first stop, we will continue the excursion by visiting all the coves of the Reserve, among the best known: Cala Beretta, Cala del Varo, Cala dello Zingaro, the Faraglioni dei Leoni, Cala Marinella. We will then reach the Faraglioni di Scopello and its Tower, which rise above the sea to protect the Tonnara di Scopello and the overhanging village. Here we could take our second stop for a swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters among a multitude of fish.
At the end of the activities our staff will be happy to offer you some good Sicilian white wine with typical tuna products. We will taste these unforgettable moments that will give us the impression of being inside a breathtaking postcard. Finally we will return to the port.
During the excursion you will be served with kindness, courtesy and professionalism by our staff who, providing you with anecdotes and news about the places visited, will make your catamaran excursion one of the most unforgettable experiences of your stay in San Vito lo Capo.
