What people are saying about Apulia

The excursion with Alcione Boat was one of the most beautiful experiences ever made! The tour of the island of Ischia by sea is accompanied by a very friendly team, attentive to the needs of all customers and always cheerful and friendly! They make you feel immediately as if you were at home, the feeling is that of not having just met but like having known each other for years, managing to unite all the passengers in one large group. Fun and feeling good all together is accompanied by delicious food, and a lot too !! In addition, the opportunity to admire the beauties of the island are also made various stops to be able to dive and immerse yourself in these wonderful waters. In summary, it is an excursion, an unforgettable experience, I highly recommend it to everyone and I can't wait to be able to relive it!

Our captain was excellent. He allowed all who wanted to take turns piloting. Unlike many of these trips where the sails are for show only, we were under sail all afternoon. Took short break for wine, great snacks and swim. Would highly recommend this tour and especially this captain. By far this was the highlight of our 6 week European adventure.

Great tour! Amazing people, lots of fun. Definitely a must if you go to Ischia, best way to experience the color of the beautiful beaches of the island. The crew prepare on board one of the most amazing food ever tasted, follow by lots of wine, Prosecco and music… Fantastico!

Fantastic !! good and beautiful attraction with very funny guide and crazy (in a good way) captain!

We loved it !!! The swimming in the cave was a nice experience ❤️
