What you'll do

We will explore by kayak and canoe the hidden treasures of the Adriatic coast along the Poetry Route, discovering Roca, Torre dell'Orso and Sant'Andrea, paddling between hidden coves and sea caves. We will explore the Zingaro Cave, the Archaeological Area and the ancient port. We will explore the famous Cave of Poetry, considered one of the most beautiful natural pools in the world. We will do Snorkeling exploring the natural tunnels dug into the rock and the cave that houses the famous place of worship Messapic. We will swim in the natural pool and dive for the traditional ritual. We will explore the numerous sea caves and arrive in the Baia Torre dell'Orso, visit the stacks called "the Two Sisters" and disembark on the beach and explore the Cave of San Cristoforo. We will explore a unique and wonderful coast; caves and canals dug by springs that flow into the sea, drawing a wonderful and wild coast where ancient dunes of clay guard prehistoric fossil fish. We will explore the Grotta dell'Acqua dolce and the Grotta del Canale, we will pass under the famous Sant'Andrea Arch and pay around the stacks and explore the Bay of Sant'Andrea.

Thank you for a great visit! It was great to see the beautiful coastline from the water and learn about how this location came to be. Really enjoyed kayaking in the sea!

The trip was amazing, such a fun way to spend an afternoon in Puglia. Piergiorgio was the best, felt like we were kayaking with friends. We had ice cream, trips to private islands, snorkeling/swim time - what could be better?
