Beautiful Day Sailing in Sicily!
Sep 2021
We had a wonderful day of sailing with Luigi and Antonella! They made for a fun and light atmosphere. We were able to have a swim in the open ocean as well as time to snorkel. The food that Antonella prepared was probably one of the best meals we had in Sicily and it was cooked on a boat! I recommend to bring water shoes with you if you have them as the rocks while snorkeling can be sharp and slippery.

Fabulous Day on the Water
Oct 2019
Our sailing trip turned out to be the highlight of our week in Sicily.

The sailboat was clean and spacious, with room for all 8 onboard, plus the crew of skipper Carlos and mate Antonella, to move around and relax. Both Carlos and Antonella were obviously very skilled sailors, so we felt safe despite the high winds when we left Catania harbor in the morning. In addition, they were both very knowledgeable about the local sights.

The trip was advertised as offering lunch, and it was very good. We were offered three courses, including antipasto, seafood pasta, and cheese and fruit, with two different wines. The meal was very fresh and not too heavy, perfect for dining in the relatively limited space of a sailboat.

When we reached Aci Trezza we had the opportunity to go ashore to see the sights and have a coffee or granita or to go swimming near the Rock of Cyclops. Some of us elected to just remain on the boat and talk with Carlos and Antonella until the others returned.

Our group was made up of couples in their 60s, 70s and 80s, but this was a great outdoor adventure that was perfect for everyone. If I ever come back to Catania I would definitely book this trip again.

Dear customer, Thank you for your feedback! We are very happy you enjoyed the trip with us, despite the weather in October and November could be very windy; that is one of the reasons there are higher waves during these months. We always aim to safety among all; therefore we go on with the excursion only when we know that it is possible and feasible and when our customers feel safe and confortable. This is a very important topic of our policy! We hope to see you again if you will come back to Sicily! Warm regards, Sicily Sailing Experience staff.

Gregorio and the Sicilian sea are the best hosts!
Great!!! From the first whatsapp contact with Helena (office) untill the last goodbye to our skipper Gregorio, we felt welcome and we were taken care of very well. We went for a daytour together with our 3 children (teenagers) and we all really enjoyed it a lot. Gregorio explained everything so good and is great in storytelling. He has a lot of historical knowledge and a lot of humor😊. Was very clear in his directions on board and yet so really relaxed. He made us a wunderfull lunch on board with good and cold Sicilian wine.
If you want to see more from the coast and the Etna and the sea don't hesitate just book this daytour. You definitely won't regret.
Thank You Gregorio!

Fantastic sailing day tour
Jun 2019 • Couples
We booked the day tour Catania - Aci Trezza - Catiania as a couple to celebrate a birthday and it was an excellent choice! Our two guides were very friendly and obliging and we had some really interesting chats with them since we were only the two of us guests on the boat. Along the tour, we were able to learn more about the area of Sicily and about sailing and our guides were really intoxicating about the sport! The food and wine offered were delicious and we even got one vegetarian alternative for lunch - and as a birthday surprise, we received a special fruit plate! The day was the main highlight of our vacation in Sicily! We arrived very relaxed and happy back in the harbour of Catania in the evening. Would definitely recommend for anyone loving boat trips and would book again, if we come back one day.

Great sailing trip with Antonio and Antonella!
Aug 2018 • Solo
I booked the full day sailing trip to Riviera dei Ciclopi and Acitrezza. I quite liked that they also allow individual travelers to join a group. After a quick explanation by Antonio we left the harbor of Catania, passing the Caves of Ulysses, Acicastello to anchor just before the Faraglioni dei Ciclopi where we could have a nice swim in the sea. They had everything on board such as flippers, goggles and snorkles. After a nice apperative we had the option to go the Faraglioni by rowing boat or pedalo for an hour. When we returned we had really nice lunch served by Antonio and Antonella before srtting sail back to Catania, interrupted by a really needed swim in the sea. If you have a day to spare and want to escape all the tourists, I'd recommend booking this sailing trip.

What a great day!
Mar 2018
We were a little leery to go on a sailing trip in March but it ended up being a beautiful day! We learned a little bit about sailing, learned a little history about the area and had a great lunch in the sunshine. We were glad we did the private tour option as it would have been crowded if there were more than our party of 6. Emilio was a wonderful host and captain. I would highly recommend if you are in Catania area!
