I am a local Taorminese who has a passion for the sea and the beauty of my home Sicily. I have been sailing the Taormina coast for as long as I can remember and there is nothing more I enjoy than to share this unique experience with others! Over the years I have been able to turn this lifestyle into my job :)

Where you'll be

We will tour the beautiful sea around Taormina- a Mediterranean wonder and the most famous coast in Sicily, just as the Greeks did when they first arrived on the island more than a thousand years ago. In particular we will explore the bay of Mazzaro, Spisone, Sirene, Isola Bella, and enter the famous blue 'Grotta Azzurra'.

Très belle expérience avec Andrea. La Navigation était parfaite, plusieurs temps de baignade et plusieurs visites avec explications ont eu lieu. C’était vraiment magique !

We had a lovely time on the boat. The host was very knowledgeable about the area and we saw lots of beautiful spots and went swimming. We had the boat to ourselves and enjoyed the trip very much

If you stay in Taormina, or at the nearby villages, I highly recommend booking this tour! It’s operated by 2 young local brothers who are very friendly and know what they’re doing. We drove around the coastline and went swimming twice, second time they gave us snorkeling equipment and we got to see some fish swimming around.🐟 The water is super clean and blue! Federico played music and the whole atmosphere was super chilled, I was literally on top of the world, couldn’t be happier. The meeting point is at the bar Lido re Del Sole, and if you follow the directions in Google Maps you get there nicely, they come to pick you up on the beach, so don’t worry about finding them. Also, the bar offers excellent Aperol Spritz, you won’t regret it. 🍹🤗

Eine großartige Entdeckung, die beiden Brüder haben uns pünktlich am verabredeten Ort mit ihrem Boot abgeholt, waren super nett, haben uns tolle Orte gezeigt und interessante Informationen gegeben. Mit chilliger Loungemusik übers Meer rasen, vom Boot springen und im türkisblauen Meer planschen, dazu diese fantastische Kulisse, mehr geht wirklich nicht, ein absolutes Urlaubshighlight. Unbedingt buchen!
