Sicily is an island belonging to Italy and is the largest island in the Mediterranean. Its nearest tip is only three kilometres from the Italian mainland, and it is 140 kilometres from Tunisia, north of Africa. Sicily is one of the few places that has several UNESCO heritage sites. It is an island full of history and well worth a visit. Rent a boat in Sicily and sail to Palermo, the capital of the island.
Rent a sailboat in Sicily and sail to the Aeolian Islands. These islands lie to the north of Sicily and are uninhabited. The main attraction of this place is the volcano that is there. You can go hiking on the active volcano or if you like water activities you can go diving in the underwater fumaroles.
If you rent a sailboat in Sicily, you can visit the main cities and islands. Like Strombol, an island with an active volcano that gives an incredible spectacle when it erupts. You can't miss this spectacle on board a sailing boat. You can also visit the city of Palermo, walk through its streets full of history and taste the food of the region. Another idea is to rent a catamaran in Sicily and enjoy the beaches of the island.
The best time to visit Sicily is summer, especially during July and August. The average temperature during this season is 26°C with gentle breezes. Summer is the ideal time to rent a sailboat and sail around the island and its cities.
If you want to rent a sailboat in Sicily, the average price will be around 150 euros per day during the low season. Prices may increase during the high season, be aware that the high season months in Italy are from May to the end of September. If you want to rent a boat during these months, we recommend you search in advance.

If you rent a sailboat in Sicily, you will require an International Certificate of Competence (ICC) and a nautical curriculum showing you previous sailing experiences. If you don’t have a licence or sailing experience you can rent a boat with a skipper. Having a skipper is good because they know the region well.
