We suggest you to bring your own swimsuit, a towel and sunscreen lotion. Wind jackets and hats can be needed since it could be windy while sailing.
If you think you can suffer from seasickness we suggest you to take pills and patches before the tour. If you don’t have the equipment required we will provide you with the necessary, ask for it when you book.
Once you meet the skipper you will get on board on a boat with three double cabins (one will be available during the excursion), a bathroom with shower, an external shower, a kitchen and a refrigerator.
Starting off from Catania Harbor we will sail for nearly two hours to reach the pictoresque Costa Saracena. During this navigation we will relax and learn the basics of sailing.
The first stop will be in the Bay of Arcile where you will be able to see, towards the shore, large rock formations. One of these rocks is completely surrounded by the sea, it is a few tens of meters away from the shore and is called "Turtle Rock" because of its profile that reminds just the one of the homonymous marine animal.
At Brucoli Bay you can take your second swim in the day and snorkel with our equipment (mask and flippers). Here you will admire the white Aragonese castle by the sea. The colors of the backdrops are gorgeous, ranging from blue, to light blue, to green. During the stop we will offer you a typical lunch included in the price with an appetizer, pasta with mussels, fruit, water and local white wine.
Relax while sailing back towards our beloved Mount Etna. You will be back in Catania around 6.30 p.m.
