Motor boat excursions so you can experience the Island of Elba from the sea

Majestic cliffs with a sheer drop right down to the sea, peaceful coves still untouched by man, beaches of a thousand colours, and grottos hidden from the turquoise sea. A way of contemplating Elba from a different angle, going along its coasts with the help of old sea dogs, exploring the hidden, enchanting gorges. Elba offers you more than one way of going on an excursion or on a boat trip, and they will all suit every age and preference.

You can go on a complete tour of the island in one day, and discover a wide variety of environments and panoramas right from the sea; or you can go on a shorter trip by going into a grotto or stopping at a black and golden sands cove, or going far out from the coast and maybe managing to see some of the many dolphins or blue whales, or heading for the other islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, or getting up early one morning and experiencing the thrill of going fishing on a fishing boat, where you will hear many intriguing stories from the men who have made the sea their second home.

Here you will find a list of motor boats that will make any wish for discovery come true...and with our help a simple boat tour will become an unforgettable experience.
