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'.

It was a great experience, we saw sunset and they taught us how to drive the boat, we tried to drive the boat, and even saw the dolphins in the sea. They prepared snacks and Sicilia special wine for us, we talked about our life, it was really awesome!

We had a very nice boat trip with Federico and his cousin! Way better than booking an impersonal trip with a big tourist company. Highly recommend, if you want to go with a local and get to know the real Sicily :)

This was a great way to see Taormina from the sea. We didnt have anybody else join us on the tour so it was a private trip! The blue cave is unsafe to go into due to rock falls but it didnt really matter. We had two wonderful sea swims and it was all really relaxing. There served us some limoncello and beer (unfortunately I was a bit hungover so didnt drink too much) but they were ready to offer whatever we wanted. Beer, wine, prosecco. Really pleasant afternoon in the sun!

It was our first airbnb experience and it was beautiful. Federico and Andrea were very welcoming, always laughing and smiling. It felt like an intimate boat trip with long lost friends with the Taormina sunset as the beautiful backdrop. Would highly recommend for a sunset ride! :)

Très belle expérience ! Nous les conseillons vivement! Un accueil très chaleureux, une expérience sur ces eaux merveilleuses à la découverte d’une partie de ces sublimes côtes siciliennes, avec son histoire qui nous a été contée. Nous avons pu prendre le temps d’y nager, explorer ses profondeurs (matériel fourni), et prendre l’apéritif devant y coucher de soleil sur les flots. Merci infiniment pour cette belle expérience que nous n’oublieront pas!
