    Lovely boat tour in Palermo!
    We had a lovely day on the water with Angela and Luca! They are wonderful hosts. We went swimming/snorkeling at Mondello beach and the queens cave. Served us a delicious Sicilian lunch and drinks! Very relaxing day and fun activity for our honeymoon. Highly recommend! :)

    Half Day tour in Palermo
    It was a great day on the water! Angela and Alberto are great hosts. Would have liked to spend more time out at sea, but the boat and experience was wonderful. It was my husbands birthday and they surprised him with a traditional Sicilian dessert, cassata, and a bottle of champagne. He felt very celebrated! Thank you Angela and Alberto!

    NOT TO BE MISSED BOAT TOUR
    This was one of the highlights of our two week trip in Sicily. We had a few cancellations and difficulties booking with other tours. Angela came through for us, and was not only able to secure spots for my fiancé and I in the last minute, but she delivered an incredible experience. From the locations she chose, to the underwater scooters (never heard of them before this and now it's an obsession), to the very delicious lunch she prepared for us. We were with another family, and Angela was such an amenable host, we felt like fast friends with everyone on the boat as soon as we boarded. I can't say enough good things about this experience. Angela if you're reading - thank you so much (and thank you for snapping photos for us, we’ll cherish them forever!).

    Best in Palermo!
    Angela and Luca are the best! We had such a wonderful time on the boat! Thanks so much for your professional service! We reserved the boat to ourselves and definitely had the best time! The boat is so comfortable and they prepared water and foods for us. They were so sweet and kind! The water was so clean you can see fishes etc… there’s devices prepared for you if you want to go for a swim. We loved it. Thanks again 😊😊

    THE BEST BOAT TOUR WITH THE BEST HOSTS!!!
    This tour was the best tour that we experienced with our family. We were getting married in Palermo the following day, so we booked this to get together with the family. we were a party of 11. The tour guides were so loving, so nice, so accommodating, and thoughtful. They made us a wedding cake and played a wedding song for us in the middle of the ocean. The ocean ride was so nice and smooth, we got to swim and see fish. This is a tour I recommend 10000%. I will do this again. There is nothing like the tyrrhenian sea. Thank you so much for being so kind and loving.

    Brilliant Boat Trip
    We had a great morning boat trip. Angela was very friendly and welcoming. There are 3 separate stops at different beautiful locations where there was time to swim/snorkel. We had a go on the underwater scooters which was great fun. The snacks provided were very tasty and there was plenty to go around. Scenery was lovely and the water a crystal clear blue. We would definitely recommend this experience!

    A Beautiful Morning on the Water
    A friend and I loved this tour - such a beautiful and relaxing way to spend a morning on the water and with spectacular views of the Sicilian coast line. Angela and Luca were fabulous hosts - great food and the best Aperol spritz I’ve had yet. Definitely would recommend for people who want a break from the city bustle and see Palermo and Mondello Bay from a different vantage point!

Highly recommend! We had a very fun and smooth experience. Angela and Luca were very accommodating and catered to our every need. The food and drinks were yummy, the music was good, all in all a beautiful evening. Since typical sicilian food was served, we recommend to ask beforehand for veggie options if wanted.

Myself and 7 friends were greeted by luca and Angela and welcomed upon their beautiful boat. We set off promptly and were made comfortable. The boat trip was stunning and saw some lovely views of Palermo. After a while Luca stopped the boat so we could have some food and drink and were invited to have a swim in the water (which was lovely and warm) and this is where we stayed to watch the sunset. After a few hours we set back home again and amazingly we saw dolphins swimming beside us and jumping out of the sea, this was such a beautiful way to finish a spectacular boat trip. Angela and Luca were so welcoming and were happy to honour us any requests we had (especially music). I can not recommend this boat trip highly enough, we all had such a lovely time.

This cruise was very enjoyable. Energetic hosts and met very fun group of other passengers. The boat was a bit smaller than we expected. We travelled to a lovely, calm bay with crystal clear blue water and had drinks and lots of appetizers as the sun was setting.

how wonderful the sunset on the boat, great experience, we went to the queen's cave and they explained to us why it is called that, we ate some delicious snacks from Palermo and an excellent Aperol spriz. The hosts were formidable and the experience was exceptional, thanks for everything. You are great, worth all the money spent.

This exceeded every expectation. Gaspare was a wonderful captain. He was so friendly. He created a fun atmosphere and showed us all the spots to swim in the perfect water off the coast of Palermo. It was an absolutely perfect day that we will remember forever. Look no further - this is your boat tour in Palermo.

What a wonderful way to spend an evening! Angela and Luca made our trip so personable, friendly, and safe. They accommodated us in every way and had wonderful snacks to enjoy the sunset with. Even though the marina is incredibly active with restaurants and boaters, the boat was not the easiest to find. A sign is needed to be placed on the dock. But Angela helped us a lot to find their boat quickly. We would definitely look for them the next time we are in Palermo 💙

Great customer service!! Anglea went out of her way to secure a 2nd boat (on last minutes notice) to accommodate my family of six! The views were beautiful, the crew was welcoming and ready to assist anytime. We especially enjoyed the drinks and food provided.
