Every day from March to November, we set sail off one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful coastlines. We offer you a day trip on a sailboat, either for your exclusive use or in the company of a few others, with a skipper at your complete disposal, surrounded by Saracen towers, sea stacks, wonderful bays and coves - and with a bit of luck, dolphins, too! This tour starts at the harbour "La Cala" in the center of Palermo

We had such a good time on this yatch this review could go on forever. From scenery to crystal clear seas from excellent food cooked on board to great service Alfredo and Giovanni gave us a day that we'll never forget. The yatch is a good size and kept in top condition, much better than any picture on the website.... More

Hello We are the German and her Spanish/Brazilian daughter the comment before refers to. We were delighted by the sailing trip, the confidence inspiring and super friendly Crew - Alfredo and Giovanni, who even cooked a delicious meal on board using a special tasty oil from a friend's plantage, and our co-sailors. We met them again ashore in Palermo in... More

This August, my husband and I spent a wonderful day sailing with Alferdo. Booking was easy and he sent very clear directions on when and where to meet. The boat was lovely, clean and well maintained. There were only four of us on the boat and Alfredo made us feel welcome and part of his family. We made three stops... More

We had a great day with Alfredo and Giovanni! Unlike many boat tours I´ve taken on holidays, this one is not so childish or out to score easy points. It was very pretty, the staff was incredibly friendly, lunch was great. We had a wonderful day really. The only thing I would´ve wanted was more info on what we saw... More

We set sail bang on time and we were joined by an Aussie, his Finnish wife, a German and her Spanish /Brazilian daughter, six of us in total. Giovanni and Alfredo were the perfect hosts. Unfortunately there wasn't enough wind to do any hardcore sailing so we spent much of the time moored up in various bays swimming and snorkeling.... More

I, my mother and my 9 year old daughter went on a day trip today with Alfredo and his son. Cruising along the Palermo coastline, we had the chance to bathe and snorkel in crystal clear water which you would expect in the Caribbean, not in Europe. Alfredo and his son are super nice, will go out of their way... More

A few months ago 4 of us traveled to Palermo. We had been thinking about a sailing tour, but we didn't make any arrangements in advance due to our hectic schedule. As soon as we got to Palermo, we were determined to get out on the beautiful, blue water. I emailed Alfredo, and within an hour he responded with availability... More

Thanks so much to Alfredo and his son who were perfect hosts for our afternoon trip. We were supposed to do a day trip but it was cancelled due to bad weather the days before so we were glad there was a free space for an afternoon trip. Very relaxed feel, great scenery along the way and they stopped when... More

I booked the trip early due to the review on tripadvisor. Despite the other two passenger falling in, Alfredo and his daughter and son still took my sister and I out and we ended up having the sail boat all to ourselves. We visited a nice fishing village where they treated us to some yummy gelato (thank you!) and we... More
