An absolutely incredible experience. We had a party of 7 and the boat was perfect. Salvatore and his wife are amazing and very accommodating and their knowledge of local sea life and location is perfect. We will definitely be coming back !

Salvatore and his wife provided us with an amazing afternoon on the water. They are very charming and enjoyable to talk to and learn about Catania. Salvatore pointed out the various seaside towns, islands and myths surrounding the waters. We also had an amazing Catanese lunch on board and Prosecco. I could not recommend this more highly.

Rent a boat with or without skipper in Catania

 

Sicily is an island off the coast in Southern Italy. Catania is a seaport city located in the eastern part of the island, at the bottom of Etna, one of the world’s most incredible volcanoes. With many beautiful beaches surrounding the city, it’s a perfect place to rent a boat, pass your time in the ocean and explore the coastline. Hiring a boat in Catania will allow you to find some amazing hidden spots along the shoreline, to see fantastic ocean creatures such as dolphins and go snorkelling to see the lively sea floors. Make sure you also check the bay of Cyclops and the faraglioni rocks.

 

When should you hire a boat in Catania?

 

The best weather in Catania is in summer during the months of July and August. This is when the temperatures reach their maximum, the sun is out all the time and when there is almost no rainfall at all. The summer is also the high season which means there are a lot more tourists than during the rest of the year, therefore it can be crowded in some places.


The weather is still really good all year long. We recommend visiting Catania in Spring or Fall, with a lot less visitors and more calm, you’ll feel a lot more comfortable sailing around the beautiful island of Sicily.

 

Prices and information for a yacht charter in Catania

 

You can find the best offers on SamBoat if you wish to hire a boat in Catania. With a starting price of 120€ per day, you can rent a motorboat. For around 1750€ you can rent a sailboat for a whole week. The prices really vary depending on the type and size of the boat you wish to rent.

 

If you plan on visiting Catania and the beautiful coasts of Sicily during the summer, make sure you book a reservation well in advance. The prices increase a lot during the high season making it a lot more difficult to find the perfect offer.

 

Do you need a licence to rent a boat in Catania?

 

If you rent a boat in Sicily, which is located in Italy, national laws and regulations apply to boat renters. 

 

If you want to hire a sailboat, you will need to show a boating licence. Same goes for boats with engine capabilities above 40HP. This means that you can still rent a motorboat with less power or even a houseboat without showing any licence.

 

If you still want to rent a sailboat but you don’t have a licence, you can rent with a skipper who will be your captain and accompany you on your sailing journey.

 

What to do in Catania

 

Rent a boat in town and go discover the beautiful Sicilian shoreline, beaches and hidden spots. Go for a snorkelling session, spot the different sea species and animals or just relax and clear your mind in the vibrant sea. 

If you feel like stretching your legs, Catania has some fascinating historical sites you can visit, or even some incredible hikes you can do. For instance, hike up Mount Etna and learn about the most active volcano of Europe.
