Boat tours on the coast of Taormina - Giardini Naxos. This coast is located on the Ionian side of Sicily, facing the Straits of Messina and dominated by the imposing Mount Etna, the largest volcano in Europe. The excursion takes place along the shoreline along the Cape of Naxos, the Bay of Naxos, Cave of the Day, Cape Taormina, Isola Bella, the Blue Grotto, the Bay of Mazzaro and finally the Bay of St. Nicholas. In addition, we organize fishing trips.

Enjoyed a lovely few hours at sea. Views, caves and swim. With the fish! Welcomed on board and given a commentary in broken English. Tasty snack and soft drinks on board. Worth a trip to see the coastline and sea views. Loved it.

We went on the two hour boat trip, it was very good. The boat was clean and staff very helpful and friendly. We got to see the East Coast from a different perspective. We all enjoyed jumping off the boat into the crystal clear sea!
