Full description

Set sail from Giardini Naxos for an exciting private boat tour in the Bay of Taormina.

The skipper will take you to discover the most beautiful spots along the coast, such as Capo Taormina, the Fico and Elephant rocks, Isola Bella, the Grotta Azzurra and the Baia delle Sirene. Finally, when the sun sets on the horizon tinging the sky pink, you can enjoy the spectacle of dolphins leaping in the waves.

Don't wait any longer: call your friends and enjoy this splendid 4-hour tour.

What we will do

We will meet at 16:00 at the port of Giardini Naxos, where the crew will be waiting for us. We will then board a comfortable and modern 10-metre motorboat. The boat is equipped with all comforts to make our tour to discover the dolphins of the Bay of Taormina even more enjoyable.

We will immediately admire a series of natural beauties that make this part of the Sicilian coastline unique. We will see the Scoglio del Fico rising from the waters, spot Capo Taormina and the islet of Isola Bella.

We will then pass the entrance to the Grotta Azzurra, with its water changing colours from emerald green to turquoise. The excursion will also take us to the Baia delle Sirene and the characteristic Scoglio dell'Elefante.

We will then head off the coast, where we can better spot the dolphins that inhabit this area and leap over the water. The skipper has learned about the habits of Taormina's dolphin population and will lead us to the spots where it is easiest to spot them.

We will thus experience the thrill of watching the sun set over the horizon and, if we are lucky, we will be able to take wonderful photos with the pink sky and the dolphins jumping from the water. The excursion lasts a total of 4 hours and ends with the return to the starting point.

Who it is aimed at

The excursion is open to all, without age limits.

We will be on board anelegant motor boat 10 m long and 3.5 m wide, built in 2017 and equipped with every comfort, including a cabin that sleeps 2, an awning, sundeck fore and aft, galley, WC and deck shower. Dogs are not allowed on board.
