What you'll do

If you are willing to have a total summery experience, this is the right one for you! (We Can arrange different hours, ask please)
We'll meet at the Siracusa small port. From there, depending on the wind and on the weather conditions, we will go around the famous Ortigia island or straight to the caves. Ortigia is one of the most characteristic islands of the Sicilian East Coast and you can have an amazing view over the entire ancient harbor and castle of Siracusa from the sea!
I exceptionally decided to give you an option: If the day is good for waves, we can transform our SUP experience into a surfing one, going to the closest surfing spot - it's up to you!
Other things to note
Sunscreen and a hat, a t-shirt, to avoid to be sun burnt

Covid19 updates: The activity is safe and we don't have any contact, only small groups.
I grew up in Siracusa, I lived for ten years in Milan for my studies and for my work, I was Lawyer since when I decided to come back to my home town.
I was missing the sea, the wind and the waves. My life here in Siracusa is for the most of the day is based on my sports (Windsurfing, SUP surf, freediving and cycling) and my airbnb guests.
I'm well known in the surf community in Sicily and if there's wind and waves I'm always in the water! Surfers usually contact me if they want to know the weather conditions in this part of Sicily and if the conditions are good, they come to Siracusa!

Where you'll be

You'll have a special and unique view of the Island. Another prospect, going around the Ortigia island is a great experience, especially when we'll cross the bridge and passing close by the castle.

Great experience paddling around the rocks and caves north of town. My first time on the stand-up paddle board, but would definitely do again!

We had a great time while Stand up Paddling. Mario looks after his guests and explains about history and culture. He explained how to paddle best and also made sure we could rest when needed.

Отличный вид спорта как для новичков так и профессионалов. Нас было двое, мы получили большое удовольствие. Нас предупредили, что погода может измениться и будут большие волны на обратном пути, но в целом экспириенс замечательный, красивые виды, пещеры. Марио также рассказал нам немного истории об острове. Заметка для очкариков- обязательно одевайте линзы, либо одевайте очки с цепочкой во избежание неприятной ситуации. Подруга забыла о своих линзах, но Марио подсказал как закрепить очки на голове, в случае если человек окажется в воде. Солнцезащитные очки тоже не рекомендуется одевать- лучше одеть кепку на голову

Mario è stato molto gentile amichevole e preparato, ci ha raccontato aneddoti e curiosità sui luoghi, ci ha fatto delle foto e ci ha accompagnati lungo la costa dell'isola di Ortigia dandoci anche dei consigli utili. Il tempo è volato abbiamo chiacchierato e ci siamo trovati molto bene. È stato inoltre disponibile a spostare l'orario dell'esperienza per venirci incontro. Consigliatissimo!

Great experience ! It was our first time paddle boarding. We felt safe and saw very nice caves, had enough breaks to swim and learnt some history about Siracusa from Mario. Would definitely recommend !
