Full description
Your tour will begin when you meet your captain and board your boat at the Port of Giardini Naxos before setting sail on an unforgettable adventure.

Your first stop will be at the Bay of Spisone, where you’ll have the chance to take your first swim of the day and to snorkel independently. You’ll marvel at the stunning stone islets that emerge from the waters and the Atlantis Bay hotel built in Gaudi style.

Next, you’ll set sail to Mazzarò Bay, widely considered one of the true treasures of the Sicilian and Taormina coasts. You’ll then stop off at Isola Bella, a historical pearl of Taormina, where you’ll have the chance to explore the Blue Grotto and to discover its gorgeous reflections of light. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Taormina, you'll then be served a tasty selection of local cold cuts, cheeses, and seasonal fruit, all washed down with a fine local white wine. Finally, you’ll have the chance to take another swim before beginning your journey back to the Port of Naxos Gardens.
