I know Perla del Mar and ithe captain Giovanni since over 10 years. My policy is either to go on a boat with Giovanni or not at all! It is because of the high QUALITY & PROFESSIONALISM he offers. Always with bright smile and humor. Always with excellent food - worth 3 stars Michelin and prepared by the chef, also Giovanni. Always choosing best places around the island & always creating a unique and unforgettable ATMOSHERE - which you will never forget! Red Prawns & much more - are an absolute delicacy & at the Sunset Trip seems Giovanni knows best how 'to follow' the dolphins :))) In all these years I didn't even know he has got such good ratings and recommendations - I just knew - I want to join Perla de Mar! Simply THE BEST ONE Thank you Giovanni!

We found out about la 'Perla del Mare' and his captain Giovanni through friends, and it was the highlight of our holiday! Expect a fantastic tour of Lampedusa's main beaches (including the super famous 'Spiaggia dei Conigli') and best spots to swim in crystal clear waters like 'La Tabaccara'. But that's not all....the Captain Giovanni gave us a lot of info about the island, best spots and how's living in such a small paradise not only during peak season but also in the winter...he also was genuine fun to talk to! And, last but not least....the food. Now, let's make sure this is a fair and honest review: I am Sicilian, and I've been living in the UK for over 8 years (hence my English review), I know what's great food and fish, and the lunch we had onboard of La Perla del Mare was simply some of the freshest and finest fish I've tried in my life. Not just the freshness of the fish (Giovanni is a fisherman and owns another fishing boat), also the way it was cooked - 5 stars. I highly encourage international tourists to discover this great experience and some of the best Sicilian traditional cuisine, and overall discover the Island of Lampedusa and Linosa - small paradises a stone throw from 'mainland' Sicily. Andrew.

Captain Giovanni and his assistant, also named Giovanni, are true professionals in every way. Every detail of our trip was impeccably managed, from the immaculate boat Perla del Mare, our 3-star Michelin lunch (amazing: the pictures posted by other reviewers say it all), small group size, and being the first ones out of the port in the morning. Captain Giovanni puts everyone at ease with his friendliness and sense of humor. We were super lucky to have calm enough seas to be able to circle the entire island of Lampedusa, with its enchanting grottoes, imposing cliffs, and waters glimmering every possible shade of blue green and turquoise. We were also the only tour boat that day to see dolphins —thanks to Giovanni’s keen smarts. The Perla del Mare may cost a bit more than the competition, but it’s worth every penny. Book in advance and you will have an unforgettable experience with memories to last a lifetime!

Giovanni the Captain and Giovanni the chef welcomed us on their boat and treated us like royalty. The food, the sights and the entertainment were incredible. I advise all visitors to book this boat tour. The best way to see Lampedusa!
