What you'll do

This is a sailing adventure focused on respect for nature, sustainable lifestyle and knowledge of navigation. An exciting sport activity, rich of new experiences and discoveries. The yacht is fully equipped and meets all the standards of comfort and safety. First we meet 15 minutes before the boat tour, generally at the Caffe del Porto. Once embarked, we begin by introducing you to the bases of sailing, winds and the ocean. Set sail from the Nautical Club of Catania, we open the sail and begin to cruise along the volcanic coast of Catania going with the winds, on the horizon we will see the Island of the Cyclops, the place where Etna was born. All the members of the tour will help to steer, to manage the sail and to sport activities. In the meantime you will learn the sailing techniques on board we prepare the aperitif. So let's the party starts and altogether we cheers with a glass of prosecco or white wine. Last but not least, you will have the opportunity to bath or to swim near the Grotta di Ulisse or the Riviera dei Ciclopi. This is a perfect first experience on a sailboat because in 3 hours you enjoy the vibe of the sail that allow you to decide to return for a longer experience, even the next day.
