Full description

Are you ready for one of the most exciting experiences of your life? With the boat tour between the Bay of Naxos and Taormina , you can visit the most beautiful sights in the area, from the Blue Grotto toIsola Bella, and get a closer look at the fantastic dolphins that have been present in the waters of the gulf for over 4,000 years.

An experienced skipper will take you in search of these marvellous cetaceans, accompanied by the warm light of sunset. You will photograph several specimens, listen to or record their calls and their typical vocalisations, known as clicks.

Are you ready to get excited? We are waiting for you on board!

What we will do

We will meet at the port of Giardini Naxos at 18:00, where the crew will be waiting for us. Once everyone is on board, we will depart around 18.15 in the direction of Taormina.

We will enter the Isola Bella nature reserve, a marine park with crystal-clear waters that is home to the famous Blue Grotto, which can be visited subject to weather and sea conditions. We will then head towards the Baia delle Sirene and the enchanting Grotta del Corallo.

Afterwards, we will set sail in search of dolphins. Enveloped in the warm light of sunset, we will explore the areas usually frequented by these wonderful cetaceans. A romantic and evocative experience that will lead us, if we are lucky, to admire several specimens while listening to their whistles and calls.

Young and old alike will be enraptured by this encounter, sailing alongside them to observe their movements and jumps up close. Once we have taken the customary photos and admired the sun setting on the horizon, we will enjoy a small aperitif on board.

After about two hours of the tour, we will return to the port of departure.
