This was an awesome experience. Host is very nice and speaks good English. He told us few words about important places we were passing by. Boat is clean and comfortable, there is plenty of space. You get coffee and sweets on first stop and then delicious wine and local snacks on second stop. You also get some equipment to swim ;) I think this was one of the most relaxing activities i have done in my life :)
I got a bit sea sick during the stops since the boat is rocking quite a lot then, but otherwise it was fine. I highly recommend this if you are in San Vito lo Capo

This is a brilliant - and very good value - boat excursion from San Vito Lo Capo, down the coast of the Zingaro nature reserve to Scopello. From the very first telephone contact with Susan (who was very helpful) everything was easy and well organised - nothing was too much trouble.

As hosts, Susan and Mauro are so friendly, and they really make you feel at home on their boat. They are also very knowledgeable about both the area covered by the tour, and Sicily more generally, and it was great fun getting to know them and hear their stories, recommendations, etc.

The tour is the perfect length, and very relaxing. As well as there being plenty to see, there were a couple of swimming stops, and (at least on our trip) Susan & Mauro even provided us with wine and food from the local area part-way through the excursion - unexpected, but very much appreciated! The boat was also the perfect size for us, with capacity for only about 12-15 people, so it meant that it felt like a truly personal experience.

I cannot recommend this excursion - and Susan & Mauro particulary - highly enough!

We are a group of 8 friends & booked the boat for a day. Susan & Mauro were great hosts , we had a great day from beginning to end! They are very knowledgable about the area we had plenty of stops for swimming & snorkelling, the boat is clean & spacious, lunch was delicious & plenty of delicious local rose', as well as snacks all day , definitely didn't go hungry. There is plenty of room at the front of the boat to sunbathe.

This was superb value for money. When you pull out of the harbor on this lovely boat, you'll be thanking your lucky stars you found Hippocampus. San Vito harbor is loaded with bigger boats busting with tourists, but Hippocampus is a low-key, authentic experience on the water. Susan and Mauro are warm, knowledgeable hosts, who offer 2 lengthy stops for snorkeling (and have all the equipment you'll need), and even a sampling of local treats. Absolutely fantastic.
