Sailing boat trip
The luxury of a day trip by catamaran, a magical sunset, a dip in the turquoise waters of a paradisiacal beach, a pleasant evening under the stars on the deck of the sailboat, a fun night dancing on a boat with your friends, the discovery of secret dream places accessible only by sea…
A sailing trip or luxury cruise around Sicily’s sun-kissed shores or across to one of the off-shore islands is a great way of getting a different perspective on some of the island’s most magical sights, such as the Scala dei Turchi or the Valley of the Temples and also provides plenty of opportunities for snorkelling and cooling dips. Choose from a wide range of organised excursions and tours all around the coast or, for a more luxurious experience, charter your own motor boat or yacht for the day.
If you are staying in western Sicily, mini-cruises to the Egadi islands depart from Marsala on a daily basis. Pausing initially at some of Favignana’s prettiest bays, such as Cala Rossa and Cala Azzurra for swimming and snorkelling, the cruise continues on to the island of Levanzo. Prices start at €45pp for a full day’s excursion, including breakfast, lunch and snorkelling equipment. It is also possible to rent a sailing boat for your group’s exclusive use (with or without a skipper), to explore the Egadi Islands.
Enough of an apology! Day boat trips are truly affordable for everyone, even those who never have time but are looking for affordable experiences. Be enchanted by the magic of the sailboat!
