Swimming and Snorkeling in the Bay of Spisone

Baia di Mazzarò
You will sail into Mazzarò Bay, famous for being considered one of the small jewels of the Sicilian coasts and of Taormina, which is set between two rock spurs covered with Mediterranean vegetation.
Visit of the Bay of ``Isola Bella``
Isola Bella, historic pearl of Taormina connected by a natural strip of sand to the mainland, where illustrious owners have alternated over the centuries and have made it their precious home. During this stop you will have the opportunity to observe from the boat, the Blue Grotto with its heavenly reflections of light.
Aperitif in the bay of Villagonia under the city of Taormina
You will stop at anchor with the breathtaking view of Taormina that will be the backdrop for your tasty moment of refreshment. We will serve you a platter full of local cold cuts and cheeses, along with products in oil and seasonal fruit. Everything will be accompanied by water and a good local white wine. At this juncture you will be able to take the last bath of your memorable experience.
During the return you can take a last swim offshore (weather and sea conditions permitting). You will return to the Port of Catania around 1:30pm or 7:30pm

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
unique I highly recommend this to everyone because it is one of the greatest thing to do in Catania. I definitely enjoyed it a lot and will for sure do it again.Obaid M11/09/20
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
Catania Sailing vibes! This was a really good experience, very happy with the whole morning. The crew were warm and welcoming, made you feel comfortable. Had great/interesting local knowledge and stories to tell. The food that was prepared was fresh and tastes great!
Communication was also great in the run up to trip, with details of meet up spot and what to bring.
10/10 really fun experience.
Worth it! Very happy to experience a different view of Catania and of Mt. Etna as well.
Also, Ivan is a great skipper and he has entertained us with historical facts and legends about Sicily. Definitely recommended if you want to relax.
ESPERIENZA AL TOP !!! Fantastica esperienza vissuta con Ivan e la sua Crew. Barca a vela pulitissima. Ivan e Andrea oltre ad essere molto gentili e simpatici ci hanno raccontato diversi aneddoti dei luoghi visitati attraverso questa gita in barca e fatto ammirare la
Meravigliosa Catania da una prospettiva diversa , quella del mare !
Esperienza sicuramente da ripetere e da consigliare a chiunque passi da Catania!
Un abbraccio da Gianluca Romina e Nicole.Gianlupo197705/09/20
Esperienza entusiasmante Ottimo equipaggio e barca affidabile. Skipper vivace e rassicurante, ha affrontato il vento tenendoci allegri e sicuri.orazioc33903/09/20
Schön aber nicht herausragend Es war zwar ein besonders Ereignis, da Segeltrips für uns nicht alltäglich sind, jedoch hätten wir uns mehr Highlights gewünscht. Die Besatzung war einwandfrei, kompetent und hilfreich. Die Tour hingegen ausbaufähig. Schön wäre es gewesen, wenn an einer schönen Badebucht Gelegenheit zum Baden gewesen wäre. Stattdessen ist vorhergesehen, dass die Gäste an einem unspektakulären Ort ca. 300 Meter vor der Küste Cataniens in das Wasser springen. Auch wurden die Zyklopeninseln weder angefahren noch wurde uns über sie etwas erklärt. Positiv hervorzuheben sind jedoch die servierten Canapés.RtinaRi02/09/20
