I did this sailing trip on a sunny day in November and it was great ! I could see Catania from the sea, Aci Castello and Aci Trezza, and we could even go for a swim because the water was not that cold (about 19 degrees). I highly recommend this trip but if you do it in the low season,... More

Catania is not the best city to visit - very poor and not much to do. So make the most of the central base for excursions like this!! The sailing trip was great - even for those with no experience kof sailing. The booking process was easy, laetitia and Diego speak English and french (the hostess and the skipper), and... More

A great day at sea with lovely guides and food. The swim stop was a particular highlight, as was the simple sailing on the open water.

We had a great trip. Impressive boat, nice crew, great lunch, paddling to an island was a nice addition. Only reason why we don't give five stars is that the boat is too crowded with six passengers and two staff. Two people less would have been better.

We were planning to make a surprise to a friend for his bachelor party, and googling activities in Catania we found the Sicily Sailing Experience.

I loved it! the skipper of the boat was super friendly and let me try driving, the other people on the tour were fun to spend time with, and the weather was perfect. We saw a gorgeous old castle and some grottos formed by volcanic activity.... More
