We choose the first option. Maurizio waited for us in the small harbour town of Porte Ercole at 9 o’clock in the morning. His boat is approximately 8 meters long ad well equipped with cabin, sundecks, sweet water shower and cooling box for drinks and food. We had a lovely day in June with clear blue skies and warm water. After 30 minutes drive we arrived at the southern part of Monte Argentario a peninsular with splendid beaches, rocks and great views.
Our first stop was in front of a massive rock which has an underwater cavern called Grotta Azurro. We put on fins and snorkels and explored the beautiful underwater scenery. There is a lot of fishes to see. The crystal clear water and the impressive underwater rock formations will make your dive really special. The girls stayed near the boat and Maurizio took me to the Grotta Azurro. It’s a small cavern with an underwater entry. You have to dive 1,5 meters deep to get into the cavern where you can breathe normally. Snorkelling there is easy and fun!
This daytrip is a lot of fun for a family or a group of friends. Especialy with kids this will be your best holiday adventure! The boat holds up to 6 persons easy. If you want to book a boat trip you can do this directly with Maurizio.
