A magical mixture of historical and natural surroundings makes Sicily one of the most fascinating regions to visit by chartering a boat in Italy. Sicily has been a Greek colony, a Roman province, an Norman kingdom and a Arab emirate; it’s Europe, Asia and Africa all rolled into one, a land where more than three thousand years of history are reflected in a complex culture with its own art, flavours and inimitable colours. Its tiny archipelagos offer crystal waters, volcanic mountains and ancient fishing villages, a truly wonderful experience for all boat loving sailors.
Charter our beautiful Dufour 525 GL yacht, either bareboat or skippered charter in and around the amazing crystal clear waters of the Aeolian Islands.
Capo d’Orlando marina which is centrally located between Palermo and Catania airports on the North coast of Sicily makes a great base to set off to explore the Aeolian Islands.
A short 20 Nm passage will have you amongst the clear blue waters and the amazing scenery.
Rising out of the Cobalt-blue seas off Sicily’s North Eastern coast, the Unesco-protected Aeolian Islands (Vulcano, Lipari, Salina, Stromboli, Filicudi and Alcudi) are a little piece of paradise, a magical outdoor playground offering thrills and spills at every turn. Stunning waters provide sport for swimmers, sailors and divers, while trekkers can climb hissing volcanoes and gourmets can sip honey-sweet Malvasia wine.
One of the most amazing sights of Sicily is without doubt Mount Etna. With its 11000 feet Mount Etna is the tallest active volcano in Europe. Mount Etna is a must do activity, but plan well ahead, consider the available time and the type of visit. Mount Etna can be visited in many ways, and there are many places that can tour the site, all which offer different activities on the volcano. When your sailing make sure you stop off and enjoy the photographic opportunitys. After visiting relax your tired feet in cool water from the yacht, and feel the peace and serenity of the local area. Etna’s first recorded eruption was in 1500 B.C. Etna has erupted at least 190 times but don’t worry the last time it erupted seriously was 1992.
