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'.

We had a great time sailing around Taormina! This is definitely an experience worthwhile - the scenery is beautiful, you see same amazingly shaped caves with perfectly clear water. Unfortunately we were not equipped for swimming, but it was well possible to do so even though it was middle of October. Hosts were very kind! They were very flexible with meeting time and told us fun stories about the city and the island. We had music on board and some red wine, while riding in the sunset! Overall, a great experience we would certainly recommend!

Had a great experience! Boat tour is lovely. They even had snorkels for us to swim off the boat. Great value for money. Highly recommend!

An amazing experience. The brothers were super knowledgeable. They offered us wine, they had fresh towels and goggles for when we swam in the sea. One of the best experiences.

Federico and his brother Andrea were very welcoming and knowledgeable. They arrived on time and showed me some beautiful spots that are only accessible by boat. The swim was lovely and I enjoyed the local pistachio drink. A great morning out and a must do in Taormina

This tour was great, highly recommended. Have this trip early in your stay, so you can orient yourself with different beaches and locations to explore further. Federico and Andrea were very nice and easy to communicate with from the start.

It was a wonderful, relaxed excursion. Federico and his brother know everything about the area and in the end we snorkled and even saw an octopus.
