"The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides" (Jules Verne, 20000 Leagues under the sea)

As from the year 1000 headway to the Renaissance, an increased passion to sailing flourished especially with the foundation of maritime cities from which ships sailed. As from ancient times the Mediterranean basin was busy by means of trade routes and cultural exchanges between the populated regions. The Mediterranean has also been protagonist of legends and an accomplice to famous navigators, amongst which Ulysses.

Sicily is surrounded by the Ionian Sea (name attributed to Ionius voyage) and the Tyrrhenian Sea (the Greek name for Etruscans who were led by the prince Tyrrhenus). Cruising Sicily in summer and autumn is ideal. The Island is renowned for its flavours, scents and landscape, however it is also blessed by nature since it has the typical Mediterranean climate with mild winters and relatively calm hot summers. Various winds blow over Sicily, which vary in strength and direction. And what about the currents? The strait of Messina is renowned for strong currents and whirlpools where Ulysses dealt with the monsters Scilla and Cariddi, however it offers a wonderful sailing experience for those eager to play with its currents and counter currents.

Sicily is rich in interesting and enchanting sightseeing places that one sailing vacation is not enough. Our agency, with base port at Syracuse, can help you organise and discuss the best sailing route apt to your skill and comfort. The Staff speaks English and if you have no sailing experience, the agency provides training and certification or else we supply an accompanying skipper and hostess for the cruise.
