Step by step excursion
Welcome at board
Once you meet the skipper, you will board our sailboat with three cabins (one of these will be available during the excursion), a bathroom with shower, an outdoor shower, a kitchen and a fridge.
Immediately after leaving the moorings the skipper will introduce you to the basics of sailing by collaborating, if you wish, in the opening of the sails that we will do immediately after leaving the port. Once out of the port you will admire the whole gulf of Catania with the magnificent ETNA in the background
During the navigation, direction caves of Ulysses, along th seaside you can admire the ancient factory of sulphur coming from the volcano
Swimming near the Caves of Ulysses
At the Caves of Ulysses you can take your first swim of the day. These caves were formed under a splendid lava cliff overlooking the sea. The colours of the backdrops are wonderful, ranging from blue, to green, to blue
While sailing towards Acitrezza, you will pass under the Medieval Castle of Acicastello. Spectacular will be the view of the castle from the sea. You can also observe the characteristic “lava cushions” that can be found under the castle and which were formed following the rapid cooling due to the encounter between the lava of the underwater eruptions and the sea water.
Once arrived in Acitrezza, the skipper will show you the Marine Reserve of the Cyclops Islands. After a short stop with the possibility of taking a bath, we will undertake the return navigation
During the return you can take a last swim offshore (weather and sea conditions permitting). You will return to the Port of Catania around 4 pm
- Tender boat (for four people to go snorkeling inside the Faraglioni Natural Reserve — we also provide masks): €80
- Kayak at the Cyclopean Isles: €22 per person
- Photographer on board with drone: €250
We recommend that you bring your swimsuit, beach towels and sunscreen with you. Windbreakers and hats could be useful as there may be wind during navigation.
If you think you can suffer from seasickness, we recommend taking pills or taking patches least 30min before the excursion starts. If you do not have the required equipment we will provide (where possible) with the necessary, but we kindly ask you to ask for it at the time of booking.
If you or anyone in your group can’t swim, please inform us while booking in the comments section.
Will book again I have done a few sailing trips already and this was definitely the most enjoyable one in Sicily! Ivan is an excellent, charming, professional guide. He knows a lot about Catania, history, about sailing and is always up for a joke 🙂 Together with Andrea they are a very pleasant team. During the trip, we enjoyed delicious, fresh local food accompanied by a glass of Prosecco. The weather was sunny, warm, and totally enjoyable, even though it was already November! I will definitely book again and can highly recommend this experience to everyone visiting Sicily.tomas-from-ch12/11/20
Wunderschönen Nachmittag mit Freunden Haben heute mit Freunden einen kurz Segeltrip vor der Küste Catanias gemacht. Dauer 4 Stunden. Es war ein tolles Erlebnis. Wir hatten das Boot nur für uns und haben den Tag voll genossen. Die Skipper waren super nett und haben uns sogar mit kleinen Snacks zum Mittag überrascht. Ein unvergessliches Erlebnis mit Traum Wetter im November. Wird aufjedenfall nochmal wiederholt. Uneingeschränkt sehr empfehlenswertalexandra h08/11/20
Esperienza superlativa con incontro ravvicinato dei delfini Esperienza stupenda, personale altamente qualificato sia nella gestione della barca che nella descrizione di ciò che stavamo ammirando, barca perfetta e pulita con persone gentilissime e simpaticissime. Consigliatissimo per una giornata rilassante da trascorrere con amici o in coppia per godere delle meraviglie della Sicilia e che il mare Offre. Durante il tragitto abbiamo avvistato anche un super branco di delfini che ci hanno fatto assistere ad uno spettacolo magnifico. Durante il ritorno al porto abbiamo assistito anche al tramonto.W8040IWandream03/11/20

Best part of the holiday! The 3 hour sailing trip was perfect. Ivan’s a great guy and couldn’t have been more hospitable if he tried. The boat was really
nice, we went out into the Med, Ivan explained a bit about what we sailed past. For example coastal caves formed from Etna lava. We dropped the anchor and swam in the warm sea. We had plenty of Prosecco, delicious olives, bread, capresse, sun dried tomatoes etc. Highly recommend.SachMcFW28/09/20

Perfect! Our Skippers made this day to a great one!
I had booked another day but the weather (and the waves) had been too bad. The Guide did everything what's possible to search the perfect day and it was 🙂
Always enough and really fresh food (they're cooking on board) and really nice skippers. Thank you! 🙂Danica S18/09/20

Tour privato romantico A dir poco un'esperienza entusiasmante!
È stata la mia prima uscita in barca a vela e non potevo scegliere un team migliore, il Capitano e il personale di bordo si sono rivelati molto professionali e simpatici.
Mi hanno fornito le informazioni che volevo ed ho finalmente potuto vedere la costa della mia città da una prospettiva unica.
A completare una giornata meravigliosa è arrivato un aperitivo delizioso gustato al tramonto.
Una giornata magica da ripetere assolutamente, la consiglio vivamente!!!X2470SEnancys11/09/20
