What to expect

Prepare yourself for a beautiful day spent swimming and snorkeling among some of the most beautiful natural sights in Italy: Ponza Island.

This excursion begins early from a centrally located Rome office. After a quick hour-long transfer to the nearest port, you'll board the fast ferry to the Island, just 1-hour and a half away.

After you dock in Ponza's quaint port, you'll have brief free time to explore before boarding your 5-hour long guided boat excursion circumnavigating the island. The boat excursion will cover all of the Island highlights, and is led by your captain, who is a Ponza native and will expertly navigate to the island's most scenic coves.

You'll experience stunning rock formations formed by a millions of years old volcano, see ancient Roman ruins built right into the sea and hear fascinating local legends. The boat excursion stops 4-5 times for 30 minutes to allow you to jump off the boat to swim, snorkel or explore. Alternatively, hang out on deck and soak up the sun. Snorkel gear can be purchased alongside your tour, otherwise you are free to bring your own.

Lunch is prepared directly by your captain and will served pic-nic style on board. It includes pasta, water, wine and even an espresso. At the conclusion of the boat excursion, enjoy free time to explore Ponza's tiny main port. You can order an aperitivo or shop. Around 5:30 pm, you will board the fast ferry back to the mainland, where a bus will be waiting to bring you back to our central office in Rome.
