What you'll do
After leaving the harbour in Portoferraio, we will pass by the Napoleon's villa where he had stayed during his Elba exile and we will be directed towards the most beautiful hotspots: Sansone rock archway, Enfola tuna warehouse and the Procchio Gulf. We will try to show you our passion for Elba and its crystalline water, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. While listening to good music, tasting local products and drinking a glass of wine, you will discover some unforgettable places around this unique island. For lunch, we will drop the anchor in a calm bay where we will cook you personally fresh fish-based meal, depending on what will be available at the marketplace in the morning. Simple dishes, tasting of sea, wind and sun will be accompanied by finely selected wine. We will come back to the harbour in Portoferraio in the late afternoon. "Tai Pan" is a classical example of American trawler, a particular boat type charachterised by its wooden details. Our family has been taking care of the boat since before I was born and it has always been a faithful companion in the sea. Perfect both for a family and for a group of friends. We may also organise private and special events.
I started this family-run activity when I was still studying architecture at the University of Florence. We renovated my grandfather's wooden boat and we transformed it into a means to live those childhood experiences with all those who love sea as much as we do. It has been already six years that we continue with passion to share our experiences with other sea-lovers during summertime. We would like to share our concept of slow-sail: not only through sailing itself, but also through sharing some simple seafood recipes, breathtaking views and new encounters that may happen only by the sea.
