Set Sail: Why you should include a boat excursion in your next vacation


Italy is home to some of the most spectacular coastlines in Europe: the Amalfi Coast in Campania, La Costa degli Dei in Calabria and the Aeolian Islands in Sicily; just to name a few.

And one of the best ways to admire these places is, well, from the water. And for that, you need a boat. The great thing is you don’t have to know how to navigate a boat to charter one for your trip. When planning a vacation in Calabria or Sicily, you can easily include a private boat excursion that will include a skipper who knows the waters and all the great local places that will surely give you an unforgettable experience.

There are so many reasons why you should consider a boat excursion when planning your trip to Calabria or Sicily.

The views

How many times have you been on a beach and gazed along the coastline. Now, imagine being out on the water and looking at that same coastline. The views of the mainland that you get from the water are without a doubt breathtaking and impressive.

No crowds

Some places can get pretty busy during the summer but having a private boat excursion will allow you to get to some really interesting places that cannot be reached by car or on foot. Imagine taking a dip in a secluded inlet – pure paradise!

Go where the wind takes you

Booking a boat excursion gives you greater independence. You don’t have to worry about ferry schedules or wasting time in long line-ups. It allows you to really enjoy the amazing places you visit during your trip.

We’ve recently put together an incredible package, Southern Italy Land and Sea: Calabria and the Aeolian Islands, that offers you a complete experience that uniquely captures the beauty of these two gems of southern Italy.
