It is 9 o'clock in the morning and you arrive at Porto-Vecchio and Pinarello marina.
The weather is great, just like your mood, and the sea is calm. Captain Vincent Chiocca invites you to climb aboard his boat. The craggy-faced character will take you out to sea, with plenty of stories along the way, to discover the islands he is so fond of, and which he knows like the back of his hand.
The ride really begins from Chiappa Point, where the captain will start by taking you out to the beautiful Cerbicale islands, Palombaggia, Santa Giula and Sperone.
Eleven o'clock arrives and it's time for the first dip of the day, before continuing on towards Bonifacio. Shortly afterwards, having arrived empty-stomached at the Lavezzi islands, you'll be delighted to meet a young fisherman (your captain's son), delivering to you the fruits of his morning's work. A few moments later you are sampling an authentic fisherman's bouillabaisse fish soup. Bouillabaisse, beautiful islands, turquoise waters and sun?.and another chance for a dip!
At 3:30pm you will head for home?.and a third opportunity to hop off for swim in a delightful little cove.
By 6pm you will be back on the quayside with islands in your eyes and sea poems in your head.
