Calm but complete trip through the Castellamare gulf. Three hours during which we made three stops for snorkelling. Susan was tireless in her explanations and Marco a very good skipper. I definitely would recommend Hippocampus! Only negative aspect - the departure point should perhaps be better signposted in the peer

Had a great trip down the coast to Scopollo. Crew were really informative and helpful and we enjoyed three swimming stops where masks were available if you needed them.Only 10 people on board so plenty of space to lie back and enjoy the sun. Well worth every euro.

Whilst cycle touring around Sicilly we took the boat around the reserve from castellammare del golfo to San vito as we couldn't ride through. Sue and Mauro were fantastic, accommodating our bikes and luggage. We called at many interesting locations en route with Mauros' piloting skills and Sue's knowledge of the area (and sicilly). We had chance to snorkel, found hidden caves and empty beaches, we can't recommend this small, excellent business enough, thanks guys, from Chris, Shell, Michael and Lou

We had the pleasure of taking a boat excursion with Hippocampus during our visit to San Vito! Susan and Mauro were excellent tour guides. Susan shared great stories of the history of San Vito and the nature reserves that hug the coastline. Their boat is of good size and very comfortable. Their tours consist of no more that 12 to 13 passengers which allows for a more personal experience. They took us to the best spots along the coast allowing time for a swim! Susan was very personable and accommodating as they offer anything you need snorkel and swim gear wise. Best boat tour experience! We have a 10 year old and an 18 year old and both were equally impressed and had a great time! We highly recommend Hippocampus for your boat tour experience!
