Sicily Yacht Charters

What is the best route to sail Sicily?

What makes us stand out as the leading provider of yacht charters in Sicily is the freedom to build your dream vacation. You can choose one of our carefully crafted itineraries, or create your own one and sail a bespoke route around the Aeolian Islands.

If you follow one of our routes, you can expect to visit breathtaking islands such as Vulcano, Salina, and of course Portorosa.

When is the best time to sail in Sicily?

The peak sailing season in Sicily, and Italy as a whole, runs from April to October, with April-May and September-October being the best times for a Sicily yacht charter if you want to avoid the Summer crowds. 

It is important to note that our Sicily sailing charter base is closed between early-November and mid-March. If you are looking for a Winter sailing vacation, take a look at our Caribbean destinations such as the BVI and St Lucia.

How easy is it to island hop in Sicily?

A Sicily yacht charter offers plenty of incredible opportunities for island hopping around Italy and the Aeolian Islands. Our Sicily sailing itinerary takes you to incredible islands, including:

  • Filicudi
  • Lipari
  • Stromboli

Whether you take the helm on a bareboat charter in Sicily, or hire a skipper to navigate you around the passages between islands, you will have the unique opportunity to discover sensational islands and create magical memories.

How many days in Sicily is enough?

We think a Sicily sailing charter of at least 7 days is ideal because it gives you the opportunity to uncover the treasures of the Aeolian Islands, while also having the time to relax, unwind and sip cocktails in the sun. Depending on how many excursions you want to go on, which islands you want to explore and how much downtime you’d like, you may choose to extend your Sicily sailing vacation to longer than 7 days.
If you have any questions about any of our itineraries, get in touch with us today.

What are the best things to do in Sicily?
  • Head to Isola Bella Marine Park and go snorkeling at one of the exquisite bays, such as Mazzarò Bay and Naxos Bay
  • Spend your day visiting UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mount Etna.
  • Visit the beautiful Lipari Cathedral and learn all about its history, dating back to the 13th Century.
  • Soak up the sun at one of Sicily’s magnificent beaches, such as San Vito Lo Capo, Mondello, and Taormina.
  • No Sicily yacht charter is complete without a trip to see Stromboli, the second largest volcano in Europe.
