Have you always dreamed of seeing dolphins in the wild? Here is your opportunity! We cannot guarantee that you will see them, but the chances are very high (85% of our tours!) that you will see the sunset boat ride, and the dolphins leaping among the blue waters of the sea!

The Taormina dolphin sunset boat ride

This excursion starts between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm (depending on the time of the sunset). You must always meet half an hour before the boat tour starts. You will then navigate along the coast of Giardini Naxos to Isola Bella. On the way, you will have the opportunity for a refreshing swim and snorkeling stop (bring your own equipment!) and you will visit different caves!

In the bay of Isola Bella, the boat will stop and you can enjoy some Sicilian snacks, like a small apericena. This means a "snack and a drink" on the boat! Afterwards, you will navigate to the open sea and go dolphin spotting. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee this, but there is a good chance you will see them swimming and jumping around the boat! On 85% of the boat trips we have taken in the last 2 years, we have managed to spot dolphins. And once even a whale! A true spectacle!

After sunset, we will navigate back to the harbor of Giardini Naxos. A beautiful and romantic boat trip and sunset with dolphin sighting! The whole boat tour takes about 3 hours.
