What you'll do

Ours will be an experience with the right mix of teaching (for those who want to learn the first sailing lessons) and relaxation for those who just want to enjoy the natural beauty of the wonderful Amalfi coast from the sea, bathe or snorkel. We will meet on board the Gryffindor sailboat. After a brief briefing on the safety on board, we will leave from the port of Salerno, and if there is wind, we will sail to the bay of Maiori seeing from the sea the characteristic villages of the Amalfi coast, like: Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Maiori, Minori, Atrani and the wonderful Amalfi. While browsing, if you wish, I will teach you the basics of how to drive a sailboat and you can be at the helm. When we stop in one of the many inlets along the coast, you can swim in the azure waters and enjoy snorkeling, kayaking with the equipment on board the boat. During this experience, I will be happy to offer you a tasty pasta salad, snacks, all accompanied by a nice glass of prosecco. In the afternoon we will return sailing to the port of Salerno.
Other things to note

Hi, let me introduce myself. My name is Sergio and I am from Naples. Being born in a seaside town, I could not be attracted to it: by its mysteries and wonders. I started sailing as a kid. My passion for sailing and the sea never left me and became my job. For 30 years I have been working as a professional skipper written to Gente di Mare and qualified to run sailing boats. I am a sociable and helpful person and therefore I wait for you on board Gryffindor to spend exciting days of sailing and the sea together.

I was very disappointed in this experience. The sailing trip was advertised to include a kayak to explore the coast and caves... the host did not disclose there was no kayak until I asked to use it and then told me it was broken and not available. He also stated he provide snorkeling, but when I asked there was no snorkel, only a mask. Also no sailing lesson as advertised . Different people book this experience for different reasons, mine was not only to take a beginner sailing lesson but to explore the coast and caves. This day was supposed to be the highlight of our trip, but fell short. 5 hours into the trip the engine failed and we were towed into shore. Airbnb understood the problems and was helpful in obtaining a partial refund. I understand the host was asked to modify the listing for accuracy.

We had a great day out on the boat with Sergio. There was an issue with the boat on the way back but Sergio handled it well. We got to see some amazing coastline while we floated along. Jumped in for a swim a couple of times and lounged on the deck. Overall a wonderful day out on the water!

We really enjoyed sailing the coast on Sergio’s lovely boat! He provided drinks and tasty pasta salad from lunch which was nice as well. We stopped to swim a few times before and after lunch, and took our time sightseeing along the coast. We arrived a little late but Sergio was kind enough to wait for us since our train was late. He mainly spoke Italian to the other couple onboard, but we didn’t mind too much. Overall we enjoyed the trip!

Crystal clear waters, smooth sailing and a gentle host!!! Was an experience of a lifetime that we will never forget! Thank you for your hospitality and generosity Sergio, we will never forget the Mediterranean because of this experience... Hopefully we meet again friend! 🙏

It has been a great day. Sergio is very friendly, funny and competent, he did everything to make our day great. We had also the opportunity to learn something about sailing and try to sail for a short distance, besides bathing in the perfectly clear water of the Amalfi Coast. Of course, also the places visited are extraordinary beautiful. I advice everyone to complete the trip in Salerno/Amalfi Coast with this experience.

Es war der beste Bootstrip den ich jemals gemacht habe. Einen ganzen Tag auf dem Meer mit Gelegenheit vom Boot zu schwimmen. Wir wurden sehr gut versorgt. Es war super entspannt. Werde ich auf jeden Fall noch einmal machen. 🤩
