What season is the best to charter a yacht in Sicily?

The high season is from late spring to early autumn. From May to September, the island experiences warm and pleasant weather, making it an ideal time for sailing enthusiasts. During this period, you can expect temperatures to range from 20 to 30 degrees Celsius, with clear skies and gentle sea breezes. The high season also offers longer daylight hours, allowing for more time on the water and the opportunity to explore the stunning coastline, hidden coves, and picturesque islands that Sicily has to offer. However, it's worth noting that the high season tends to be busier, with more tourists and fellow sailors, so booking your sailing adventure in advance is advisable. If you prefer a quieter experience and don't mind cooler temperatures, the low season, particularly from October to April, can still be enjoyable for sailing in Sicily. The weather remains mild, and you'll have the advantage of fewer crowds, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the tranquility of the Mediterranean.

Where to hire a boat in Sicily?

Your vacation in Sicily is about to begin and you still don't know where to start planning your onboard experience? The ports dedicated to sailors are many, so hiring a boat in Sicily will really be a matter of a few clicks.

Among the most common and accessible are the ports of Catania, Syracuse and Trapani, or Portorosa, usually chosen for sailing to the Aeolian Islands, and Castellammare del Golfo, another ideal starting point for sailing along Sicily's northern coast.

Don't forget the Egadi Islands anchorages: for example, renting a boat at Favignana, the ideal starting point, will be quick and easy thanks to the wide availability of models.

Where to sail on your yacht charter in Sicily?

Are you planning your next vacation in Sicily, but don't know where to start exploring it? We have created for you a list of some of the absolutely must-see destinations on your boat tour:

Taormina is located along the southeast coast of Sicily, a short distance from Acireale and Riposto. Immerse yourself in history as you watch the ancient Greek theater and then relax with an afternoon siesta overlooking Isola Bella.

Palermo is the regional capital, as well as one of the best places to start your vacation, before retreating to the region's beaches and quieter towns. Leaving Palermo you can sail without much effort towards both Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito Lo Capo, and head towards Cefalù and the white sand beaches of the north coast.

A wonderful day of quiet and gastronomy awaits you in Cefalù, one of Sicily's most iconic and photographed towns. A point not to be missed? The view from Rocca di Cefalù, which rises imposingly above the ancient houses overlooking the sea.

San Vito Lo Capo, the guardian of the famous Zingaro Nature Reserve, is another of the most beautiful and visited coastal destinations in the region. Overlooking the northwest coast, it is mostly known for the large sandy bay that opens up to the roots of Mount Monaco.

Are you looking for a romantic trip for two? An incredible sunset along the coves between Marsala and Trapani is an unforgettable program. Departing by boat from one of the two ports, you will also have easy access to the Egadi Islands, located a few nautical miles off the coast.

Discovering Sicily on board

Another aspect that makes Sicily famous all over the world is the natural beauty of its archipelagos! The Aeolian Islands, Égadi and Pelagias. Whatever you are looking for, you will surely find it here!

Unique natural landscapes, fishing villages, ancient traditions that can still be seen today, and environments where time seems to have stood still - not to be won over by such a spectacle is practically impossible! As part of the UNESCO protected World Heritage Site, the Aeolian Islands are located on the northern coast of Sicily, so getting there by boat from Capo d'Orlando or Sant'Agata di Militello will be very easy.

The islands of Vulcano, Lipari, and Salina will be the first to visit on your boat tour, as well as the largest in terms of extent. Followed by the smaller Filicudi and Alicudi, located further west than the previous ones. Here time never seems to have passed, and the rhythm of the day flows smoothly and steadily. If you are looking for tranquility, it is guaranteed here! In addition, to the east, you will find the islands of Panarea and Stromboli, perfectly accessible from Milazzo or Tropea.

Second, but not least, is the archipelago of the Égadi Islands, which dominate the western coast of Sicily. Perfect destinations for those looking for clean beaches and an emerald sea. If you need to disconnect and get away from everyday life, Favignana, Levanzo, and Marettimo are perfect for you!

Hire a boat with or without a skipper?

Boat charters in Sicily may or may not include a skipper. If you decide to hire a skipper, you are guaranteed a relaxing sailing journey. The skipper will use their expert knowledge to smoothly navigate the season and take you to unknown locations. They are also responsible for the safety of everyone on board. If you decide to set sail without a skipper, you have the freedom to explore at your own pace. Keep in mind that you will need a licence for a bareboat rental.
