We are a family of four (our children are 10 and 8 years old) and this tour was the highlight of our vacation in San Vito. Apparently, the tour is particularly popular with families as we shared the boat with two Italian families with young children. The guides, Susan and Mauro, are both fluent in English and Italian, and went... More

I arranged 2 half-day private boat trips instead of 1 long day trip since my kids get antsy after a few hours. My emails with Susan and Mauro ahead of time were lovely exchanges so I was sure that our time together would also be lovely. As it turned out it was more than that - it was also magnificent,...

We were so pleased we booked this boat trip and would highly recommend to anyone in the area. This is unlike any other tour we’ve done; as it has an extra personal touch with such a warm welcome from the owners who go out of their way to take care of each guest onboard. We did half a day tour,... More

My family and I decided to do a boat tour with Susan and Mauro and it was the perfect way to end our trip to Sicily! There were 11 of us total and we were all beyond impressed with everything from start to finish- Susan and Mauro are wonderful, Susan has a wealth of knowledge and even after visiting Sicily...

We had a amazing time with Susan and Mauro. It was a wonderful way to see San Vito Lo Capo. They couldn't of been more gracious hosts, and it was a perfect balance of a little history of the area and allowing us to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing on their beautiful boat. If you're in Palermo or western Sicily,... More

we recently spent a day on the Hippocampus boat with Maurro and his wife Susan. Arriving early morning, ten of us boarded the boat and left San Vito lo Capo heading along the north east coastline towards Castellammare del Golfo. Susan was on hand to give a guide of the various locations along the way. She was great - very... More

Anybody visiting eastern Sicily must try and take in a trip with Maurro and Susan on the Hippocampus boat. 10 of us have just returned from a fantastic day "messing about on the water" which has prompted my first ever Trip advisor review! The whole trip has been excellent and I genuinely cannot think of a single negative comment! Fabulous!

We booked a boat tour with British born Susan and her Italian husband Mauro during our holiday in San Vito lo capo and we weren't disappointed. The couple were very friendly from the off, did everything they could to make us feel comfortable and welcome on their boat. We had morning coffee and snacks and then a lovely lunch in... More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews and the fact that Susan was English we chose this tour. We were tempted by sales people on the beach but stuck to our first plan. We were very glad we did. It felt like it was our own private excursion although there were 4 other people on board. Coffee and cakes were served at our... More

We just went on this excursion earlier today, and it was well worth it. The hosts are very nice and personable. The boat may not be as large as some of the others, but it was a more intimate setting where we could talk and get to know one another. They are very knowledgeable about the area and we saw... More
