Full description
Meet an English-speaking Ponza guide for the day in the main port of Ponza for a 10:30 AM start before boarding your boat excursion for the day. This Ponza Island boat excursion circumnavigates all 42 beautiful miles of coastline, weather and sea conditions permitting. You'll come across stunning volcanic rock formations, sea caves, blue grottos, hidden coves, and rocky beaches.

Along the way, your Ponza guide will share fascinating stories about the long history of the island, including evidence of neanderthals inhabiting the area. The Roman's left their mark here as well, leaving ruins of villas, aqueducts and even a series of decorated sea grottos where they farmed fish.

The boat excursion will stop at 4 to 5 locations around the island where you can swim and snorkel directly off the boat for 25-30 minutes. Be sure to bring your own snorkeling equipment. At lunchtime, your boat captain will prepare a fresh, hot pasta lunch which will be served with water, wine and espresso. At 4:00 PM the boat excursion will come to an end, returning to the starting point, the main port of Ponza.
