Enjoy a wonderful day sailing along the coast of eastern Sicily (Catania, Aci Castello, Acitrezza). You can swim in the clear blue sea in places that are unreachable without a boat. You will be led by a professional skipper who will teach, during the tour, the basics of sailing techniques.
The sailing tour starts from the port of Catania at 10:00 am. Sail along the route that Ulysses took and discover the beauty of the bay of the Cyclops in Acitrezza. Depending on weather conditions, time available, and upon request, it maybe possible to see dolphins and other marine life; go fishing, swimming, snorkeling; and/or learn the fundamentals of sailing.
This is also an amazing opportunity to discover Catania from the sea and visit one of the most captivating landscapes of the Sicilian coast cruising through Ulysses’ Grotte and the Castle of Aci Castello. Later we anchor in front of Acitrezza’s faraglioni (sea cliffs) for a traditional Sicilian lunch of seafood that will be served on board. White wine and drinks are included (a vegetarian menu is available on request).
After lunch, guests go ashore and may walk through the village and try typical Sicilian cannoli or taste the excellent local granita. You will return to Catania around 5:00 pm, riding the waves and feeling the wind.
