Our guides will accompany you for a trip by boat, through the visit of the ancient Tonnara (tuna fishery) and Faraglioni (Stacks) of Scopello, as well as the Zingaro Reserve. You can choose among “full-day” or “half-day ” activities formula. Departure is set from port of Castellammare del Golfo in order to reach Scopello, sailing through Cala Bianca, Cala Rossa and Guidaloca bay.

 

Scopello bay is famous not just for quality of  sea water and variety of marine flora and life, but also for the scenic beauty of the Faraglioni (great stacks). In the beautiful bay between the stacks and the old towers is the famous Tonnara, known since immemorial time and mentioned in documents dating back to the XIII century, still operating a few years ago with its beam, buildings, warehouses and the ancient Church.

Tonnara of Scopello, not in use nowadays, was one of the first in Sicily to practice tuna fishing, even before the advent of the Romans. According to some historical sources,  where now  Tonnara is currently set, it stood the ancient city of Cetaria, which was already existing  in the greek-roman era, that thanks to its strategic location could advantage of a sea full with fish. Centuries of culture and marine tradition are enclosed in the Tonnara of Scopello, a real charming place rich in history and legend.
