What you'll do

This is a sailing adventure focused on respect for nature, sustainable lifestyle and knowledge of navigation. An exciting sport activity, rich of new experiences and discoveries. The sailboat is fully equipped and meets all the standards of comfort and safety. First we meet 15 minutes before the boat tour, generally at the Caffe del Porto. Once embarked, we begin by introducing you to the bases of sailing, winds and the ocean. Set sail from the Club Nautico Catania, we open the sail and begin to cruise along the volcanic coast of Catania going with the winds, on the horizon we will see the Island of the Cyclops, the place where Etna was born.
All the members of the tour will help to steer, to manage the sail and to sport activities. In the meantime you will learn the sailing techniques on board we prepare the aperitif. So let's the party starts and altogether we cheers with a glass of prosecco. Last but not least, you will have the opportunity to bath or to swim near the Grotta di Ulisse or the Riviera dei Ciclopi.
This is a perfect first experience on a sailboat because in 3 hours you enjoy the vibe of the sail that allow you to decide to return for a longer experience, even the next day.

Wir haben als Familie an dem Trip teilgenommen und obwohl das Wetter nicht ganz so gut war hatten wir eine tolle Zeit an Bord. Die Crew war super und wir haben uns willkommen gefühlt. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Très bon moment passé à bord de ce magnifique voilier. Tout était parfait, temps magnifique, baignade et apéritif. Notre fille de 2 ans a passé un excellent moment, je crois qu'elle est faite pour la navigation.

This was an absolutely fantastic experience! Finding the location was fairly easy, the hosts were very fun company, the water and views of Catania/Mount Etna were breath-taking, the boat itself was very clean and beautiful. We cruised along the coast and we're able to jump into the water which was thrilling, the food they prepared was absolutely delicious accompanied by champagne. We felt very safe on the boat and was an exhilarating experience, I have no suggestions for improvement and I don't see anything that should be improved. Fantastic experience, would highly highly recommend!!

Все было замечательно. Встретились вовремя и пошли на яхту. На борту были легкие сицилийские традиционные закуски и просекко. Остановились для купания в живописном месте. Рекомендую это впечатление

Ein wunderschönes Erlebnis. Total relaxed und entspannend. Ivan ist sehr freundlich und humorvoll, es war eine tolle Stimmung an Board. Ein wunderschöner Blick auf Catania und den Ätna und das schwimmen im Meer war wirklich top. Ein Erlebnis das man nicht verpassen sollte wenn man in Catania ist. Absolut empfehlenswert!
