The most beautiful places to snorkel near Sorrento are the protected marine area of Punta Campanella and the Bay of Ieranto – a UNESCO heritage site -, easily reachable by our boats.


These enchanting natural inlets are located at the extreme tip of the coast, where the Amalfi Coast and the Sorrento Coast meet. From here, you can admire Capri in all its splendor.

Here, the sea is calm and crystal clear, and the rocky walls are rich in parazoanthus and gorgonians.

The underwater wonders of the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella offer a natural spectacle of inestimable value, hosting a wealth of biodiversity that underlines the crucial importance of its conservation.

Among the species that contribute most to this marine ecosystem, Posidonia oceanica stands out for its fundamental role.

This marine plant not only creates vast underwater meadows that provide food, shelter and nursery areas for a diverse range of marine life, but also plays an essential role in protecting coastlines from erosion and maintaining water quality.

What you will see while snorkeling in Sorrento


Posidonia oceanica, with its imposing presence, is not just a plant, but a symbol of the interconnection of marine life and its resilience, highlighting the importance of protecting these environments not only for their intrinsic beauty but also for their crucial role in the global marine ecosystem.


Immersed in these meadows, underwater explorers can discover a vibrant world pulsating with life. From the small but lively communities of sea urchins, starfish and red sea squirts to the delicate gastropods that find refuge among the leaves and roots hidden under the sand. The long leaves of Posidonia oceanica serve as anchors for the friendly seahorses, which cling to them with their prehensile tail, often adorned with encrusting epiphytes.


Among the intertwined branches, scorpion fish, wrasses, damselfish and salps hide, creating a complex and interconnected habitat, and if you are attentive, you will be able to observe mullet, schools of salp, latherini and black guarracini, as well as spotting the glittering silver of the sea bream, sea bass and sea bream.
