The ancient Greeks and Latins called it Cetaria due to the abundance of tuna found in its waters.

Zingaro Reserve on a sailing boat

Live an unforgettable experience on a sailing boat with a tour on a sailing boat at the stacks of Scopello sailing on the coast to the Zingaro nature reserve!


We set sail for the Riserva dello Zingaro, offshore we skirt Alcamo Marina, Castellammare del Golfo, the first coves of the coast such as Cala, Bianca, Cala Rossa, and then make the first swim stop in Cala dell'Uzzo, where to explore the caves and the small white pebble beach. We will then move to Cala del Varo, to discover the natural caves and to enjoy a light lunch with Mediterranean flavors on board.

During the swim stops we will enjoy the sea in total relaxation, without stress and without punctuating the stops with whistles or deafening music.

The last swim stop will be dedicated to the famous TONNARA DI SCOPELLO with its Faraglioni  and with the atmosphere of the evening lights.
