OFF TO SICILY
Kite & Sail Curise
One week Kite & Sail Cruise on our catamaran in the northwest of Sicily.
Away from the hustle and bustle, we explore the most beautiful spots of the Egadi islands in the northwest of Sicily with our catamaran. Deserted bays, dreamlike sandy beaches and crystal clear water are on the program as well as passionately prepared Sicilian delicacies.
Sicily has become a hotspot of the European kite scene in recent years. The reason for this are the constant wind conditions, warm temperatures and the good connection to most European airports. Accordingly, most of the spots are full. With our catamaran we escape the masses and kite where we like it and if we have enough of a spot, we simply weigh anchor and look for another bay.
This trip is suitable for intermediate and advanced kitesurfers. For beginners only conditionally suitable because we partly kite at somewhat more difficult spots where you should be able to run upwind.
Day 1 Saturday: Arrival day at the port
If you arrive by plane, we will pick you up at Trapani airport. At the exit of the arrival area our driver will be waiting for you. Just look for the „KITESAFARI.EU“ logo. We will then take you to Marsala, 15 minutes away, where our catamaran is moored in the harbor. We spend the first night in the marina and go to dinner in one of the surrounding restaurants. If you are planning a road trip to Italy, you can also come to Sicily by car or van. There are numerous connections from Genoa, Livorno, Piombino and Civitavecchia directly to Palermo. Your car can be parked in the paid parking lot (80€ per week) at the pier.
The „Check In“ on the catamaran is possible from 17:00 o’clock until Sunday approx. 07:00 o’clock. If you arrive before 17:00 you can spend the day in the marina sunbathing and swimming, or at our partner station in Lo Stagnone kiting.
Day 2-6: on the open sea
On the morning of the second day, after breakfast and a briefing from the skipper, we cast off around 10:00 and head north to the Egadi Islands. We will spend the next days in the northwest of Sicily. Our ports of call and the exact route, we plan daily together, of course always depending on wind and weather. The possible spots for kiting are countless, since we can kite from the catamaran practically everywhere where we are anchored.
Day 7 Friday: In the harbor
On the penultimate day we arrive back in Marsala around 17:00. After a delicious dinner we will spend the last night on board.
Day 8 Saturday: Departure day
„Check out is at 08:00. If you have to go to the airport, we will bring you there on time.
Our catamaran is a 14m long and 7m wide Lagoon 440 built in 2007. Equipped with 6 cabins and 4 bathrooms the catamaran offers space for 8 guests and 4 crew members. The very maneuverable and comfortable catamaran not only offers a lot of space on deck but also has enough space for privacy below deck. The flying bridge is the best place to enjoy the view during the cruise. The trampoline nets and the relax area in the front area are perfect for chilling out and having a sundowner after the session.
