What you'll do

Ich Bin's is a 31ft danish sailboat who has been travelling all around the world and actually has been bewitched by Palermo. On board time is 10am in the very center of Palermo at La Cala and standing by the weather we'll set sail towards Capo Gallo to have a swim in the wonderful water near Mondello otherwise we'll aim Capo Zafferano, choosing where to drop our anchor completely free and adviced by the captain experience. After lunch we could have fun or relax heading home at 6pm. Accordingly to crew's wishes we'll stop and move and everyone could (should!) join the maneuvers to learn how to handle a sailboat, discovering the magic of being pushed by wind virtually everywhere.
Other things to note
Standard mobility requested to get on/off the boat either from dockside and water. The excursion is suitable and recommended for childrens who will be involved in boat handling

I'm a real passionate of the sea and sailing the Mediterranean sea I fell in love with Sicilian coast. Musician and literature addicted, I decided to press pause on my landside job to follow art and saltiness, to enjoy the most beautiful islands and share the experience of the sailboat either from the technical side and as a philosophy.

Where you'll be

There isn't any beach in the Capo Gallo reserve as it's enjoyable only by the sea. From Isola delle Femmine with its suggestive stories to the Addaura beaches we'll have a wonderful landscape to enjoy, while on the East side Capo Zafferano offers crystalline water and interesting attraction as the old lighthouse and the blues arch.

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 48 reviews.

Our day on Andrea’s boat was amazing. It’s so nice to go out in a small group of people because we were really able to chat and get to know each other, and ask Andrea about his life and his boat! We had a lovely stop to swim in beautiful water, and Andrea made us a delicious lunch. It was so relaxing and enjoyable, I’d highly recommend it!

We came 25 min late but Andrea waited for us! He took us on a tour along the coast around Palermo, stopped at Capo Zafferano for a swimming and snorkelling stop while he prepared lunch (pasta with fresh seafood!). We learned a lot about Sicily from Andrea and he taught us basics about sailing, even letting us steer on safe waters :-) Highly recommend this trip with Andrea!

What a wonderful experience. Swimming off the boat as well as a leisurely trip around the coastline. Andrea was the perfect host, very accommodating as I am gluten intolerant. The whole trip was extremely relaxing. Well worth booking.

Très belle expérience avec Andrea !! Accueil chaleureux et sincère : on s’est tout de suite sentis très à l’aise ! Un capitaine attentionné, très bon cuisinier et qui maîtrise parfaitement l’art de la navigation. Andrea nous a emmenés dans de superbes endroits tout en prenant le temps de bien nous laisser apprécier les différents spots ! Un des plus beaux moments de nos vacances. Une expérience incontournable à faire si vous passez par Palerme !! C’est un sans faute !
