Very nice experience to see the coastline under Taormina, have a glimpse of sailing and also a tasty apero. The guide, Gregorio, is very well prepared and gave us many interesting information on sailing and the city of Taormina. We were able to do some snorkeling and swim a lot, enjoying some refreshment on that very hot day! The boat was very comfortable but we had not enough money to buy it.

Our morning on the boat was one of our highlights of the holiday. Davide was the most welcoming, calm and insightful skipper. Everything felt easy and smooth because of him. We had plenty of time to snorkel, swim and relax on the boat taking in the scenery. He let us play some music while we enjoyed the snacks and wine provided. Couldn’t recommend this trip with Davide more!

A wonderful afternoon, aboard Davide's sailboat, which does everything possible to ensure that everyone has a good time. Go along the coast, swim, dream, and as a bonus an aperitif on board. A moment of relaxation, allowing you to discover the coast from the sea and to swim with mask and snorkel in splendid places. To do absolutely
