Zip over to neighbouring Procida and Capri, join the dawn fishermen, sail around Ischia or search out the dolphins.
Sail for the day around Ischia, jumping into the sea, exploring blue water caves. Take a speed boat for a visit to Ischia’s nearest neighbours, rugged and fashionable Capri, and Procida, the smallest island in the Campanian Archipelago.
Leave at sunrise with the Ischian fishing fleet, your fisherman guide will share his knowledge of currents, bait and technique. Anything you catch can be cooked on an island bay or back at Mezzatorre.
Dolphin watching with an informative biologist who uses ultra sounds to spot the activity. This is an all day expedition with a 90% chance of seeing the dolphins’ extraordinary fishing strategy as half the team herd fish into a canyon, and the other half wait at the end to eat them. The team at back never eat the fish, as it spoils the hunt.
Snorkelling and diving off the Ischian coast is a richly fascinating experience, especially for the volcanic thermals and Roman ruins beneath the sea.
Diving off shore, around the thermals, you will discover a distinctive underwater landscape and a rich diversity of fish. Just in the bay by Ischia’s castle you can explore the ruins of this city that is named for Aenum, which means metal, and a centre of manufacturing lead up to 130 AD.
Discover magical bioluminescence produced by sea algae. Make a night dive, or snorkel expedition, or even enjoy this phenomena from a glass bottomed boat.
On all underwater expeditions our biologist/geologist, will share their knowledge to make these truly revelatory experiences.
