The boat trip along the coast from Giardini-Naxos to Taormina has been an excellent experience. We have enjoyed beautiful views of the bays in addition to the sympathy of the captain and his knowledge of the area. Due to the end of the season we had to get on the boat from a small boat. Accessing the boat from the port and from the boat to the boat was complicated and is unsafe for people with limited mobility. It is important to inform interested parties of this problem beforehand.

Emilio was an excellent host skipper, although most of his clients onboard were Italian, we were never left out of his detailed bilingual explanations. Nobody is in charge of the weather and sadly we had very light winds on the day, but still had a great afternoon. Next time I hope we Get some more wind!

It was a very nice afternoon. Everything was fine, but unfortunately the Grotto Azurro was closed. If we come again and we will for sure, we will do the tour again when the grotto is open.
