We were looking for a boat trip along the splendid Gargano coast between Vieste e Mattinata. Most day trips included a visit to the caves, certainly beautiful, but this requires small boats. The result is too many people crammed, jammed, in these large powerboats, under scorching sun, rather reminiscent of the terrible trips immigrant have to endure from Lybia to Lampedusa to escape wars and persecution. Then we found this very civilized option, a large motor/sailing boat (probably a caicco), with plenty of shade if you want it, gently floating down along the coast and stopping a few times for a refreshing swim in the best places. Clearly, the boat was too large for the caves, though it stopped near one and you could swim to it if you wanted it. A very pleasant lunch was included in the price. The captain (I presume he was) was very friendly. A very pleasant day trip, recommended

Had such a lovely relaxing day on this trip. It's a gentle tour along the coast line to Mattinata from Vieste, which is (to a point) the same route that many of the other tour boats take, but instead of being crammed in, you're on a spacious comfortable boat, with a friendly crew (and it goes a little further than the other trips, stopping at all of the most beautiful bays towards Mattinata). Delicious (and massive!) lunch served, water available all day, wine with lunch if you wanted it, with plenty of stops for cooling off and swimming in to caves.

2 aspects we were unsure of: 1 - they let dogs on board all day, and 2 - people can smoke. Neither of these points bothered us enough to give this wonderful day out any less than 5 stars.

We are just back from a 1-day cruise on the catamaran sans souci, starting from vieste and cruising along the coast in the direction of mattinata. This is a great experience to have since the landscape is gorgeous seen from the sea. The boat can host up to 25 people, and we had enough space to relax onboard. The crew is professional and friendly. They prepare a light lunch made of bruschetta, grilled fish and mussels. Drinks are also included. Several stops are made to allow a swim in the sea. They also brought us in the spectacular caves with a smaller boat. Overall a very pleasant day on the adriatic sea and its emerald waters. In august 2014 we paid 65euros per person, and it is definitely worth the money.
