The sea and its wonders are a source of inspiration for many of us, but few are lucky enough to know its beauty firsthand. Fortunately, however, there are people like Mirko, a third-generation fisherman who inherited his grandfather’s and father’s love for the sea. Mirko has decided to share his passion for the sea with the rest of the world, organizing boat trips to let visitors experience the beauty of the island of Ortigia and its natural caves.
His “Siracusa in Barca” (Syracuse by Boat) has become one of the favorite choices for tourists visiting the city thanks to his experience, professionalism, and attention to passenger safety.
In this article, we will explore the unique experiences offered by Syracuse boat excursions!

Mirko’s commitment to the sea and his maritime heritage are evident in every aspect of his tour company; from the choice of tour routes to the attention to detail when arranging excursions. Siracusa in Barca is much more than a simple maritime transport company: it is his passion, his mission, and a unique experience for anyone who wants to truly see Syracuse and the surrounding sea.
Thanks to their experience, professionalism, and proven service, Siracusa in Barca has become one of the main choices for tourists who visit Syracuse and want to discover the city from the sea. The company uses state-of-the-art boats to ensure the safety of all passengers on excursions and guided tours.
They offer a wide range of tours which include exploring sea caves, a visit to the island of Ortigia, and much more. Each tour is well-organized and customized to meet clients’ needs, aiming to deliver an outstanding and unforgettable experience.
Captain Mirko’s Tours
Siracusa in Barca organizes a variety of tours to meet the needs of tourists who want to explore the splendid city of Syracuse and its natural beauties including the sea, cliffs, caves, inlets, and magnificent spots to swim. Each tour is well organized and customized to meet customers’ needs. The company’s goal is to provide an exceptional experience.
One of the tours offered by the company includes a visit to the island of Ortigia, where the tour begins by crossing the Umbertino bridge, built in the 17th century. Afterward, visitors will be taken on a panoramic tour of Porto Marmoreo and the western side of Ortigia to admire the Baroque palaces by the sea. They will also see the Castello Maniace, which has played a significant role in the history of the city. The castle was built between 1232 and 1240 and was initially called the Castle of Federico II. It was later renamed Maniace in honor of the Byzantine general Giorgio Maniace, who reconquered the city from the Arabs in 1038. Visitors will also pass by the Arethusa Fountain, where the legend of Arethusa and Alpheus is set. The Arethusa Fountain is a source of freshwater that flows underground until it reaches the island, where it flows into the sea.
