Are you ready to experience the diverse natural scenery along one of the most popular Sicilian islands? Let the adventure begin. Follow your boat captain (skipper) onto the vessel and travel from the port of Giardini Naxos through the coast of Taormina. Keep your eyes peeled for all the obvious and subtle treasures along the way.

Natural Caves and Isola Bella

Pass through the quaint Naxos Bay town before sailing deep into the Taormina coastline. Here, take each opportunity to admire the rare beauty of the Love Cave (or Grotto Amoretta). Marvel at the Blue Cave, or (Grotta Azzurra), illuminated by the reflecting water. Move towards Bella Island (or Isola Bella), aptly named for its charming vegetation, contrasting the green-blue waters surrounding the island. Along the way, learn interesting information about these places from your experienced captain.

Dolphin Watching, Sunset Views, and an Aperitif

Pause at select locations in the Mediterranean Sea to watch wild dolphins freely swim and play around your boat. On your way back, take in surreal sunset views of the unparalleled landscapes. Watch the active volcano, Mount Etna, tower over the bay and indulge in a Sicilian aperitif with almond-based sweets, savory snacks, and prosecco wine. Engage in entertaining conversations with your group and captain and enjoy delightful tunes onboard.
