Full description

Experience a wonderful day at sea on a guided boat trip departing from Polignano a Mare. Visit the coast, coves, and sea caves, take a refreshing dip in the ocean and savor a small aperitif. Choose from a shared or private option based on whether you prefer privacy or the chance to meet others.

As you hop on board, be greeted by the staff, who will provide you with towels, snorkeling equipment, and personalized glasses. Discover the magnificent coast of Polignano and see the statue dedicated to Domenico Modugno. Next, make your way to the beautiful bay of Lama Monachile.

The boat trip was excellent, we enjoyed it so much. We had a friendly and talkative guide, to sum up: recommended boat tour. The pick up point is 10 min by car from Polignano, but be aware in case you are not travelling by rented car, you have to walk 40 min or take a taxi, which is better to reserve priorly.

The trip was all great. However, for me it seemed that the advertising does not mention clearly enough that the boat trip “Polignano a Mare” actually starts and ends in San Vito, which is a bit away from Polignano, so it was really a challenge to find a solution how to get there in the last minute. If you travel by car, that is no problem. If you travel by community transportation, please take this into consideration.
