What you'll do

During this experience we will meet at a designated point and go to the boat together. We will set out to learn the basics of sailing while enjoying the Tuscan Sun. Then you can choose between traditional fishing or trying spearfishing (for the bold) or maybe just swimming a little, this is a very laid back experience with a few people thats why you can choose what suits you best, we both love every one of those activities thats why we'll enjoy ourselves.
After that, depending on the time of the day in which you choose to come with us, we will either enjoy an Italian aperitivo or eat the catch of the day. And then we'll sail back to the port so you can put into practice everything you've learned.

IMPORTANT NOTE: please do not book before consulting with us for the weather conditions. We strongly depend on the winds to make this experience.
Other things to note

We are Andrea & Fatima! Andrea is an Italian sailor. He was sailing before he was even walking, his father taught him everything about sailing and about fishing (many forms of fishing, even with a spear) and his love for the sea was so big that he went on to studying nautical sciences. I myself am Argentinean and was always crazy about the sea and because of that we met in the Canary Islands. Since then we came to Tuscany (Andrea's Home) and started sailing the archipelago together. Andrea is an amazing teacher and has so much knowledge about the sea its wonderful to listen to and learn from.

What a wonderful day! Fatima and Andrea are great hosts, and they were great with the kids, teaching them how to sail and fish. Pleasant conversation, nice location, and truly relaxing

Gita in barca molto bella con Andrea e Fátima e una altra coppia di amici. Andrea è un marinaio esperto e ci ha introdotto alle basi della navigazione a vela, purtroppo per il poco vento non abbiamo praticato molto. Abbiamo lasciato Castiglione per ancorarci davanti alla costa rocciosa un po' più a nord. Giunti lì abbiamo nuotato ed anche esplorato il fondale marino con le maschere da loro fornite. Più tardi abbiamo pranzato insieme a bordo, è stata una bella giornata passata in allegria. Grazie Fátima e Andrea.

Abbiamo trascorso una giornata stupenda con Fatima, Andrea e un'altra coppia; hanno saputo trasmetterci la loro conoscenza e la loro passione, rendendoci partecipi alla navigazione. Il bagno con le maschere da loro fornite è stato entusiasmante e dopo abbiamo fatto un buon pranzo tutti insieme! Grazie della bellissima giornata!
