What people are saying about Ischia

We loved this experience. I highly recommend this boat tour of Ischia. If I came back to Ischia I would do this boat tour again. The captain waited for us near the dock because we were slightly behind timeline. He walked us to his boat and we settled in on the rooftop deck outfitted with comfy bean bags. There was also seating in the bow, stern, and inside. There were about 15 guests which allowed for plenty of space on the vessel. Each swim stop was a beautiful crystal clear cove and water deep enough to jump off the upper deck of the boat. Each stop we either got an appetizer, meal, or drink. The food was excellent considering it was made in the small galley on board. We had wonderful bruschetta for an appetizer and fresh clams with pasta for our lunch meal. It was amazing. If you enjoy sunny weather, swimming, and seeing the day go by from your perch on a boat this is a trip for you.

I thought this was a great way to spend the day. You get to see the entire island and you have a lot of time for swimming. When you're not swimming, you're either eating, drinking or traveling yo another swim spot. All the relevant places on Ischia are covered, ample time for swimming. I really do recommend that you bring something to cover up with as the sun is extremely strong. I got completely burnt despite wearing sunscreen. Chill crew, all around very chill day, really no complaints, the time was perfect for me. Definitely a great way to spend a day of your vacation

Super organized! We decided on the outward journey at 10:45 am and the return journey at 5:20 pm. Since it takes a little more than 1.5 hours by ferry to Ischia, I would recommend taking the later ferry back at 7:45 p.m. We would have liked to have stayed longer because it was really nice. Everything worked without any problems. Lunch at the Baia del Clipper restaurant was great! Ischia is absolutely worth seeing! We went for a little stroll and swim. The beach is very nice, the water is very clear. All in all, a thoroughly successful trip!

Simply amazing. Very caring crew. The lunch was great and we were able, with my companion and the rest of the group, to do many swims during this excursion, which lasted 6.5 hours in total.

I have had the same experience in various places around the world but I have never found a kindness, a cuisine and an attention to detail. I suggest it to everyone… you will surely be well.
