If you have little time, it allows you to see and swim in different beaches and above all to avoid the crowds that are in August in beaches like those of Capo Vaticano! We were very lucky, there was a wonderful weather and in addition to seeing the Aeolian Islands, Sicily and Etna were also seen.

All in all everything was extraordinary .... The magic, the atmosphere, the youth, the music, a wonderful landscape. The boat, Very comfortable, clean, the dynamic and cheerful staff bravo the Italians and long live TROPEA❤️

Helpful and kind staff. They carried out the planned stages with 3 half-hour baths. Great way to see the coves that can only be reached by sea!

All extraordinary !!! Paolo and Alfonso are exceptional, friendly and professional skippers. Nice experience, highly recommended tour
