The coasts of Italy
Sailing on board of a traditional Turkish Gulets is the best way to have a relaxing and comfortable holiday and to discover the wonderful Italian coast.
We offer a lot of different sailing areas:
Cruise to Isola d'Elba with its 147 Kilometres of coasts full of beaches, caves and wonderful coves, surrounded by a fantastic sea. In the silence of the bay, you can also get in contact with seagulls and cormorants and, during navigation, you can also have fantastic meetings with dolphins and cetaceans.
Explore Sardinia with the beautiful Maddalena archipel Nature reserve area or cross over to Corsica.
The Costiera Amalfitana offers the possibility to do unforgettable cruises melting together the charming ancient history and the rich nature.
You will visit on this cruise Procida, Capri, Amalfi, Positano and Ischia.
The Aeolian Islands, also called archipelago of the "seven sisters", offer the possibility to do wonderful cruises, explore the vulcanoes as well as walks and guided excursions;
Lipari, the widest island of the archipelago, full of contrasts and of colours, offers the visitor suggestive sights and landscapes of natural beauty;
Salina, which is the second island of the archipelago, has got high sea overhanging coasts and is verdant because of its Malvasia vineyards. Its volcanic nature is attested by the presence of two volcanos, which are not active any more nowadays;
Vulcano, located half a mile away from Lipari, has currently got two active volcanos;
Stromboli is located in the Eastern side of the archipelago, twenty-two Kilometres away from Lipari. The sea surrounding this island has got depths of more than 1200 metres. The homonymous volcano is still active;
Panarea, located only eight miles away from Lipari is regarded as the Island of the Vip. Very interesting are the thermal springs and the "Fumarole";
Filicudi was born in very ancient times and is sixteen miles away from Lipari. It is inhabited by about 200 islanders;
Alicudi, which is placed at the very Western side of the archipelago and is separated from Lipari by twenty-six nautical miles, is lacking in water and light and there are no roads on this island
Remember that all the cruise routes can be customized. From Sicily, for example, it is possible to sail to the Egadi Islands, to Tunisia or Malta, while it is also possible to reach Sardinia. Obviously all depends on your availability and on the availability of the boats.
Our philosophy is to let the guests choose which route they prefer to follow, after listening the Captain’s suggestions. The crew present on our boats are always very hospitable and discreet, and will make you feel as you are on your own boat, respecting above all your privacy.
Information and tips about the cruise
Foreigners entering Italy are requested different documents and visas, according to the country of origin. Before departure it is better to ask to the Italian Consulate of your country for information to this regard. For the European Community citizens it is sufficient to have a valid passport.
The passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months after entering the country.
For the customers of the "cabin charters" arriving independently at the boarding it is suggested to phone the ship-owning company some days before the departure date of the cruise (you can find the phone number in the holiday voucher), in order to have the name of the boat and all the necessary information to find it at the appointed port.
The captain will explain to you on embarking the cruise program.
It’s important to know that:
- Because of meteorological conditions, safety and logistic reasons, it is possible that the Captain can change the cruise program.
- For your own safety it is important to respect the security norms on board and the indications of the crew during navigation and mooring.
- For hygienic reasons you have to take of shoes before boarding and these can be kept in containers or kept in your own cabin. On board you can use slippers of rubber shoes with a clean sole. The use of sun towels is recommended when you lie down on the sundeck, especially when you use sun protection lotion.
- It is normal to limit the power consumption and turn off the lights of your cabin when nobody is inside. Also be careful with the use of water because the amount is limited.
- Do not throw anything to the sea and paper or other things in the toilet. The pumps can block and then it is impossible to use the toilet.
- Like in a hotel you can buy drinks at the bar on board and these have to be paid before disembarking by cash.
- Is strictly prohibited to smoke inside the cabins and in the common areas.
On board you can use 220 Volt electric current to recharge your mobile phones, etc…,
and you will find bath towels (there are no sun towels, shampoo and bath foam).
We suggest to bring some useful items with you like: a sweatshirt, sunglasses, plastic shoes for swimming, a cap, sun creams, mask and flippers.
Soft suitcases are easier because they can be folded inside your cabin.
For travelling to Italy it is not necessary to do any vaccination. But because of the different climatic conditions and the change of food, we suggest you to bring with you some proper medicines to use for possible disorders.
Time difference: + 2 hour respect the London time.
