Check in: Saturday at 17:00. Marina di Stabia, Napoli. Check out: following Saturday ore 8:00 a.m. Marina di Stabia, Napoli
The cruise "Sea Naples and Dive" includes 7 days through the islands of the Gulf of Naples, Procida,
Ischia and Ventotene. This cruise takes place in small groups and includes accommodation on board, an
experienced skipper and 3 diving experiences.
Day One: Sorrento
Boarding and accommodation in the cabin after a welcome cocktail. Departure for the bay of Sorrento
about an hour from the marina of Stabia. Mooring, dinner and evening walk in the characteristic alleys
of the town.
Day TWO: Baia / Ischia
Early departure. One of the most exciting dives of the cruise awaits us: the submerged park of Baia! We will
feel like flying over an ancient Roman city, among statues, mosaics and the remains of ancient port structures. After
the exciting experience, swim and relax in the shadow of the castle of Baia. In the afternoon, before dark, navigation
to the bay of S. Angelo in Ischia. Dinner and visit to the suggestive village.
Day Three: Ischia
Half a day dedicated to relaxation in the natural hot pools of the bay of Sorgeto. In the afternoon we will continue our navigation towards the port of Forio. Dinner on the boat and walk through the town centre to the church of the
rescue from where you can admire a breath-taking view.
Day Four: Ischia
Second dive this time in the waters of the island of Ischia. Le Formiche is one of the splendid dives on the island, it consists of a large easily identifiable shoal, made up of almost outcropping rocks. The diving spot is also easily
identifiable because it is located at a lighthouse that signals the series of submerged rocks to the boats just a
few meters from the surface. Le Formiche are composed of a large central rocky body supported by isolated rocks that create a variety of truly spectacular passages, ravines and dens. The dive winds along a series of canyons, which alternate with incredible frequency with stone arches, suspended like bridges on paths with a sandy bottom, on which carpets of Posidonia leaves recline creating suggestive plays of light. You return to the boat with the beautiful underwater landscapes you have just admired still in your mind and eyes. Dinner and relaxation… for those who are not yet tired , stroll through the city streets.
Day Five: Ventotene
Navigation to Ventotene where we plan to arrive just for lunch. Stop in Cala Nave for lunch and relaxation. Mooring in the ancient Roman port entirely carved into the rock by the ancient Romans more than 2000 years ago! Dinner and walk to the small square from which you can enjoy a privileged view of the islet of S. Stefano
Day Six : Ventotene / Procida
Day dedicated to the naturally underwater exploration of Ventotene. Direction Punta dell’Arco! Huge area
to explore with at least three sites of underwater interest. The landscape, defined as lunar, is characterized by
arid canyons and regular craters. The whole outline confirms the volcanic origin of the island at this point. The
lava channels will be a guided tour for divers through expanses of posidonia, sponges, anemones and Anthias. The area, of very recent fauna repopulation, is also an archaeological site given the presence of an enormous quantity of anchors. Once on the surface, lunch and relaxation before embarking on our navigation to Procida. Mooring in
the famous bay of Corricella and dinner in one of the restaurants right next to the port.
Day Seven: Procida / Castellammare di Stabia
Breakfast with Procida's Lingue di Bue (don't miss the one with lemon cream). Visit to the characteristic village of
Terra Murata to enjoy a breath-taking view from the terrace of the cathedral of S. Michele. In the afternoon
sailing across the Gulf of Naples towards Marina di Stabia. Dinner on the seafront of Castellammare di Stabia.

About the Host
Our passion for the sea and for boats put together made their dream come true. A very special alchemy inspired them to be among the first to launch a holiday format that associates a sailing experience with history, archaeology, food, sports and lots of cultural activities that take place on the mainland!
