Detailed description

Snorkel tour to the Elviscot Wreck: Breathtaking excursion off the coast of Elba

The island of Elba, which belongs to Italian Tuscany, is a small paradise of peace, quiet and recreation. Beautiful small coastal towns lie on the beach between dense forests and invite you to a cosy island holiday. However, while you are there, you should definitely do some typical activities at and in the sea. In addition to swimming, diving and kayaking, snorkeling trips are also available on Elba.

In the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea, many exciting snorkeling tours can be undertaken on the flat coast of Elba. Spectacular and well known among snorkelers is the wreck of the Elviscot. It is about 12 meters deep and is easily recognizable by the clear water with its 70 meters length and can also be explored without diving equipment. This is not only a good but also a rare occurrence and should not be left out lightly. If you like water and exciting adventures, this snorkel tour off Elba is the best choice. The snorkel guide will also observe the most diverse fish with you and help to classify them. Snorkel equipment for the one-hour tour is included.

For our little adventurers there is also a one-hour tour with age-appropriate snorkeling. The snorkel guide is an experienced marine biologist and licensed first aid diver. Freshly packed in snorkelling gear, children's biosnorkelling begins with a safety briefing on the beach before the guided water hike begins. In the shallow water, the children go in search of small fish, sea urchins, mussels and starfish. Thanks to the simple and fun teaching material, the children will have got to know many fish in the final summary! Real fun on a beautiful coast.

Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

Family Snorkeling to the Elviscot Wreck

Our daughter Josie is 11 years old and she really wanted to snorkel. And dad had to do it. A bit bumpy at first, but then it was a lot of fun. Nice to be able to do that with the whole family. Highly recommended.

Familien-Schnorcheln zum Elviscot Wrack

Unsere Tochter Josie ist 11 Jahre alt und wollte unbedingt Schnorcheln. Und der Papa musste mitmachen. Anfangs etwas holprig, aber dann hat es super viel Spaß gemacht. Schön auch, dass mit der ganzen Familie machen zu können. Sehr empfehlenswert.

Snorkeling is great in the clear, warm water

A separate world appeared when my head was below the surface of the water. Flora, fauna and a wreck. The eye had plenty to do... gladly again.

Im klaren, warmen Wasser ist Schnorcheln super

Eine eigene Welt zeigte sich, als sich meinen Kopf unter der Wasseroberfläche befand. Flora, Fauna und ein Wrack. Das Auge hatte reichlich zu tun… Gerne wieder.

Fascination wreck

Shipwrecks have a great fascination for me. Testimony and image of a bygone era - preserved under water. Here at Elviscot's water grave I really got my money's worth. Recommendation and five diving goggles!

Faszination Wrack

Schiffswracks üben auf mich eine große Faszination aus. Zeugnis und Bild einer vergangenen Zeit – konserviert unter Wasser. Hier beim Wassergrab der Elviscot kam ich voll auf meine Kosten. Empfehlung und fünf Taucherbrillen!

is this for kids

My hobby is snorkeling and diving. That's why I was interested in this dive spot, especially because of the wreck of the Elviscot. During the tour I was wondering if this is a good offer for children (6+)? Especially because no German is spoken...

Ist das was für Kinder?

Mein Hobby ist Schnorcheln und Tauchen. Deshalb interessierte mich dieser Tauchspot, insbesondere wegen des Wracks der Elviscot. Während der Tour fragte ich mich, ob das ein gutes Angebot für Kinder (ab 6 Jahre) ist? Insbesondere, weil kein Deutsch gesprochen wird…
