Route and Programme

Day 1

Meeting with the skipper at the Tourist Harbour of Catania, embarking and settling aboard our beatiful Sailboat. Departure is scheduled for around 10 a.m.

The 3-day charter tour starts with sailing to the Bay of Arcile, located approximately halfway between Catania and Syracuse, where we will be able to admire the Scoglio della Tartaruga (‘Rock of the Turtle‘, named after the shape resembling the marine animal of the same name) and the peculiar rock formations surrounding it.

We will continue with our navigation towards the Bay of Brucoli where we will have lunch at sea with a view of the splendid Aragonese Castle, which stands at the mouth of the port-canal and served as a fortress controlling the entrance to the territory.

The navigation continues in the direction of Porto Grande di Siracusa, leaving and admiring on our right Capo Santa Croce characterised by its imposing lighthouse and the bay of Augusta, one of the most beautiful and sophisticated commercial bays in Italy.

When we arrive in Syracuse we will enjoy the sunset on board and spend the night on board, just opposite the Island of Ortigia.

 

Day 2

The second day will be dedicated to exploration and navigation around Syracuse, where there is no shortage of views and coastal features to admire.

First, we reach the famous Plemmirio marine protected area, whose special features are the great variety of flora and fauna, as well as the soft tuff cliffs in the background. There will, of course, be opportunities to enjoy swimming and snorkelling sessions (subject to the availability of your own equipment) in this true marine paradise.

In the second part of the morning, navigation continues towards the beautiful landscapes and the characteristic (if not unique) light sandy beaches of Fontane Bianche.

We will return to Syracuse in the afternoon and there will be the opportunity to enjoy diving, swimming and snorkelling in the open sea.

Overnight stay on board in Syracuse.

 

Day 3

After the second overnight stay on our sailboat, on the morning of the third day, we set sail again for the Port of Catania.

The journey will offer ample time to relax and admire the splendid panorama of Sicily’s east coast, characterised by its volcanic rocky backdrops and clear, intensely coloured waters.

The return voyage will also provide an opportunity for interested and keen sailors to put into practice the sailing knowledge imparted by the skipper throughout the tour.

There will also be opportunities for open water swimming and snorkelling sessions on this third day.

The return to the Tourist Port of Catania is scheduled for 18.00.
