  • Boating with the scuba world divers: we thought we'd see them "maybe" from a distance and without much pretension we took part in this snorkeling and diving excursion. Mimmo, whom we thank so much, took us "in the middle of the sea" and we were really lucky. Several times a lot of dolphins passed by us and it was really exciting to see them so closely and hear their calls. Something I wouldn't have really imagined and that will always be a beautiful memory! Then we did a second "snorkel" among the corals and this was also another beautiful experience.
