Sailing Destinations

Sicilian Sail offers many opportunities to charter your own adventure by sea to explore Sicily. We are based in Catania, at Port Vecchio, and our boats are found moored at the Spanish port “Diporto Nautico Etneo”.  In general it is best to choose a part of Sicily you would like to explore and let us know before your departure. To the south, for example, are the ports of Syracuse, Brucoli, Marzamemi, Malta and Pozzallo.

Or, if you choose to explore the beauties of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Aeolian Islands, you can take a boat from our fleet in Catania and sail across the Strait of Messina to Milazzo, where we have a landing agreement with Marina Santa Maria Maggiore. Otherwise, our crew can carefully take you directly to Milazzo, and on to a wonderful cruise through the Aeolian Islands. For the more experienced, you can also rent your boat without crew and navigate your own adventure at sea.

Our crew staff is dedicated to making sure you have a fun and relaxing trip. Sail Sicily and Tricharter can make professional, experienced skippers and hostesses available on board for our guests, able to speak English, French, Spanish, German or Russian.
