Full description

Embark on a one-day sailing tour in the Gulf of Palermo. In one day you will visit characteristic fishing villages and famous tuna fisheries.

Depending on the weather and sea conditions, you will visit either the west or the east coast, either way taking part in a unique experience discovering Palermo's coastal area.

You will be able to dive into the water and snorkel and, between swimming stops, enjoy a deliciouslunch of typical Sicilian products.

What we will do

We will meet 15 minutes before departure at the indicated meeting point in Palermo. Here we will be welcomed by the staff, who will lead us to the sailboat, which is about a 3-minute walk away.

We will then set sail at 10 a.m. for a sailing tour to discover the city's fishing villages, such as Vergine Maria and Arenella, its tuna nets (Florio and Bordonaro) and the western coast of the Gulf.

We will reach the bay of Mondello, where we will stop to enjoy a rich lunch. We will enjoy a good typical Sicilian antipasto, street food, the famous Sicilian 'faccia di vecchia' (old woman's face), and then caponata, cold meats, cheeses, couscous, and fruit salad. The menu may vary depending on the catch of the day.

At the end of lunch, we leave for the Capogallo Marine Reserve. Several bathroom stops are planned during the itinerary, usually three, two of which last 10 minutes and one longer one included in the lunch break.

If conditions do not permit a visit to the west coast, we will visit the east coast of the Gulf, heading towards the seaside village of Aspra and from there we will move on to Mongerbino. Near the famous Arco Azzurro there will be an initial swimming stop.

We will then continue towards Capo Zafferano for lunch and we will be able to dive into the waters of the area, which are particularly suitable for snorkelling.

Return to the port is scheduled for 17:00, for a total duration of 7 hours.
