Full description

Immerse yourself in one of the most beautiful bays in Sicily and in the whole of Italy: the bay of Taormina and Giardini Naxos is ready to amaze you during a two-hour guided kayak tour to discover its most iconic sites.

Paddling through the calm, crystal-clear waters of the coastal inlet, you will reach azure-water sea caves, hidden coves, multi-shaped rocks and stacks, and other places inaccessible from land.

Prepare to experience the sea from a new perspective, to admire the beautiful marine environment and coastal landscape, withMount Etna towering in the background.

What we will do

We will meet the instructor in Giardini Naxos (ME ) and together with him we will begin preparation for the guided kayak tour. After putting on our life jackets, we will strap on the paddle and learn basic navigation techniques in order to carry out the activity in an enjoyable and safe manner.

When we are ready, we will start sailing off the bay of Naxos and in about 20 minutes we will reach the Lovers' Cave, accessing its interior to admire the water that is coloured with intense reflections and perhaps exchange a promise of love!

We will then paddle towards Capo Taormina to enter the Isola Bella Marine Park, a pretty rocky islet connected to the mainland by a tongue of sand. After delighting our eyes with this postcard-perfect view, we will visit the Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto), so called because of the colour that the waters inside take on thanks to the light that penetrates through the narrow opening: an evocative spectacle that leaves you open-mouthed!

The activity lasts about 2 hours for a total distance of about 6 km (depending on the level of participants, the itinerary may be lengthened or shortened).

Who it is aimed at

This activity is open to everyone, from 8 years old and up. No specific skills or previous experience are required, just good health and familiarity with water. The only limit is a maximum weight of 90 kg.

Other information

Attention! Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the activity. If there is a delay of 30 minutes or more, you risk slipping to the next round or, if there is no availability, losing the excursion fee. During the summer months, we recommend leaving your car at the San Giovanni car park (about 500 metres from the Sailing Club) or taking thebus and getting off at the Piazza Municipio or San Giovanni stop.

This activity can be booked throughout the year and is confirmed when there are at least 2 participants.

You can choose to take the single or double kayak tour, depending on availability and the needs of the participants. If you wish to take the tour in a double kayak, you must contact the instructor (you will receive their contact details after booking).

Children up to the age of 12 can only travel in a double kayak.
