Daily tour on a sailing boat
Riserva dello Zingaro and Tonnara di Scopello
SAILING TOUR to the Zingaro Reserve!
In the stretch of coast from San Vito Lo Capo to Castellammare del Golfo, 7 kilometers of unspoiled nature: the Zingaro Nature Reserve , one of the most famous in Italy;
The ancient Greeks and Latins called it Cetaria due to the abundance of tuna found in its waters.
The first beach you come across when entering from the north side is the largest in the Zingaro Reserve and also the most popular in summer. The Tonnarella dell'Uzzo, followed by: Cala Torre dell'Uzzo, Cala Marinella, Cala Beretta, Cala della Disa, Cala del Varo and Cala della Capreria, very close to Scopello.
The Tonnara di Scopello, with its Faraglioni, is the main attraction of the coast, especially at sunset!
Live an unforgettable experience on a Sailboat, sailing on the North West Coast, to the Zingaro Nature Reserve!
We set sail for the Zingaro Reserve, 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 the atmosphere of the evening lights.
We begin the return to Balestrate Sailing and playing with the waves and maybe meeting the dolphins!
