What you'll do

With this fascinating and unprecedented marine excursion we will guide you to discover Porto Selvaggio and its coastal wonders. We will make a trip in Kayaks and Canoes with Snorkeling and Coastal Trekking to fully explore this marvel of Salento. We will start by kayaking from Serra Cicora to explore the wonderful coast of the Natural Park of Porto Selvaggio, with its bays, caves, coves and natural pools. We will do Snorkeling to admire the sunken treasures of this marine paradise with its freshwater springs and its pristine marine ecosystem. We will bathe and relax in the famous and splendid bay of Porto Selvaggio. We will pay along the coast to admire the coastal and marine caves, such as Grotta del Cavallo and Grotta Uluzzo. We will land on land for short coastal treks to explore the Natural Park hiking trails, where we can stop in the cool pine forest. We will reach Torre Uluzzo and we will stop for a refreshment break at Fico dʻIndia before returning with our kayaks to the starting point where our marine excursion ends.

We had a wonderful time with Francesco! We learned he has a PhD in marine biology, so was very knowledgeable about the environment we were kayaking in and was able to share his expertise with us! The area was beautiful and the snorkeling fantastic! I am six months pregnant, so was especially grateful he and his colleagues were so patient and accommodating! We had a wonderful time!

Io e la mia ragazza abbiamo fatto due escursioni con Francesco e Andrea, una giovedì 21/08 a Porto Selvaggio e una il giorno successivo nei pressi della Grotta della Poesia. Francesco e Andrea si dimostrati estremamente competenti circa la storia, la fauna e il territorio che stavamo visitando, raccondando una moltitudine di aneddoti interessanti e facendoci sentire in sintonia con loro. Consigliamo vivamente l'esperienza per coppie, gruppi di amici e in generale amanti del kayak o sport acquatici, anche stranieri.
