    Excellent trip. Super cool older boat. There was not enough wind to sail and it was a little too cool to swim but the scenery was breath taking. The crew was super friendly!!

    We took this day trip on the boat to Taormina and Isola Bella on one of our shore excursions from our Cruise. I am so happy I booked this trip outside of the Cruise excursions. It was so much better! Our guide took the time to give us all of the insights and interesting facts of the area, and the boat driver was amazing. He fit that boat into some small spaces to give us the most incredible views of the bay, the beautiful clear water, and let us swim in the Mediterranean's warm water.
    I was so happy with this Tour, that I booked another one the next day for Naples, which was equally as fantastic. Thank you for saving my otherwise horrible cruise!

    My wife and my seven-year-old son Matthew had a wonderful experience! it was a bit windy, Stefano put us at ease and let us know that the majority of the trip would be on the shielded side of the island away from the wind with the city blocking. it was just a great trip. We got to see what Artesia look like from the water. Probably a lot like invading armies would’ve seen as they came in. We went over to Syracuse to go inside and I have to say just magnificent handling of the boat in a confined space lots of fun! They were just a pleasure to deal with and we almost did it the next day again as well, but was short on time so went swimming nearby instead. :)

    My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour. Although the boat didn’t sail very far out, it was nice to relax on the boat during sunset for almost an hour and a half. Angela served a huge spread of delicious appetizer and drinks included in the booking, and the crew even printed a hard copy of a photo for us to take home as a souvenir! The crew were extremely friendly and answered any questions we had, and it really seemed like they wanted to get to know us. We highly recommend this tour for couples looking for a few hours out on the water. The new marina where the tour begins is also a wonderful area to relax and grab a bite after the tour.

    We had a blast on this day trip exploring Favignana and Levanzo. Plenty of crystal-clear coves for swimming, a relaxing stop with a delicious lunch (thanks for the restaurant tip!), and gorgeous views all around. Highly recommend for a fun day on the Sicilian coast!

    Fantastic day with my wife. The boat was confortable, we were seating on the first floor, there were about 50% occupancy (about 4 people for each table of 8). We landed on Panarea and avoided the crowds by walking to the secluded spaggia della calcara where we swam alone before heading back to the boat. We saw some dolphins on the way then landed on Stromboli. Time for another swim before walking through the village and eating a delicious pizza at Da Luciano, with a fantastic view over the sea. For the final leg, after going around strombolichio, the boat stayed around the Stromboli crater for 30-45min, allowing us to see 5-6 lava spouts, with the passengers cheering. We finally headed back to Milazzo, with the back of the boat turning into a dance floor while many of the passengers fell asleep after a good day. Great mini cruise, it exceeded all our expectations!

    Everything worked seamlessly from booking (via Viator) to an amazing day out. We joined 4 other couples on Riccardo’s 37ft yacht. The easy going atmosphere made it very relaxing and comfortable. Scenery so beautiful and the highlight was being able to swim in several places in the clearest turquoise water imaginable.

    A highly recommended trip for all sea lovers. The amazingly blue water is magical and all us friends can't stop talking of this experience.

    We loved our boat since it felt like a hybrid between a yacht and speed boat, had a huge front deck and was very comfortable, clean and left on time. We occupied the front deck which had great views, but the rear deck was equally nice from what we heard from the other group.

    The itinerary is a good mix of relaxed swimming to snorkeling to visiting the caves to visiting the main islands, so you have plenty to keep you engaged. There is sufficient time at each stop, and we never felt rushed.

    The boat was well stocked with water, cola, beer etc. for the entire day but I'll recommend you carry your own poison :) and yeah plenty of munchies. Lots of sun to soak so be sure to pack your sunscreen.

    Lastly, a big shout out to our captain Francesco for taking care of us and retrieving my drone from the steep cliff :) you are the Man! Thanks.
