Swimming and Snorkeling in the Bay of Spisone

At the Baia di Spisone you can take your first swim of the day and snorkel independently (without a guide). We will provide you with masks and fins. You will admire the suggestive stone islets that emerge from the waters and the Atlantis Bay hotel which incorporates the architecture of Gaudì


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 Giardini Naxos Port around 1:30pm or 7:30pm

  • 5 star ratingDivertimento puro Splendida esperienza in barca a vela per l'addio al nubilato di un'amica. Ivan é uno skipper preparato ed esperto nella conduzione dell’imbarcazione. Ivan e Andrea sono degli ottimi compagni di viaggio, premurosi e attenti alle esigenze di ciascuno.
    Lo consiglio a tutti.


    5 star ratingSO WORTH THE MONEY! This was our favorite part of our trip to Sicily! The crew
    members were so nice and generous. The lunch was very good as well. SO worth the money as well.


    5 star ratingWill 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.

  • 5 star ratingWunderschönen 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 empfehlenswert

    5 star ratingEsperienza 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.


    5 star ratingGreat Trip:) My Girlfriend and i went sailing with Ivan and Andrea. Great Trip, delicious food and would do it again anytime. Thanks a Lot

  • 5 star ratingEolie&friends Veleggiando tra le isole Eolie ci avete regalato una esperienza indimenticabile. Ivan super professionale e Andrea super creativo. Sempre pronti a soddisfare le nostre esigenze e perché no anche ad esaudire Inaspettatamente qualche desiderio. Ottime cene al chiaro di luna e una straordinaria atmosfera. Ci vediamo il prossimo anno per una nuova ed emozionante avventura. Grazie. Anna e Gabriele


    5 star ratingBest 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.


    5 star ratingProfessionalità! Questa esperienza vi farà innamorare ancora una volta di Catania. La barca é completamente attrezzata e lo skipper estremamente professionale.

    5 star ratingHighly recommended We could see Catania from a different view, swim in the sicilian sea and enjoy great food! The crew is professional and friendly. Ivan provided lots of information and curiosities about local history and traditions. We really had a great time...thank you guys!


    5 star ratingPerfect! 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! 🙂
