This is an example itinerary suggested by the BeBlue skippers who are experts in the navigation area. The route can be planned on the needs of the group before departure or during navigation.
Day 1 - Check-in:
Check-in available from 17:00 at the embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a short presentation of the boat, you will be able to take your place in the cabins and board the galley before setting sail. Dinner can be prepared on board or in a typical restaurant on the Marsala seafront, and then visit the characteristic historic center of the city. We will spend the night in port.
In the morning, we head for Favignana to arrive in one of its enchanting havens: a bath in its blue waters, lunch on board and we are ready to dock at the port. Favignana is a butterfly-shaped island and landing place of the legendary Ulysses, where everything refers to the sea: the ancient tuna fishing traditions make it a must-see destination for the lovers of this fish. A sunset dive off the island and a good dinner under a sky full of stars are the perfect way to say goodbye to a beautiful day, magic as the land that hosts us.
Today we will navigate at full sail off Favignana to fully enjoy its wonderful sea: the sky, the sea and the earth join together in an unforgettable landscape. An aperitif on the boat with some good music will open another evening with our new friends!
We set sail in the morning and travel up to Levanzo, the smallest and wildest island in the Aegadian Archipelago. Here there are neither streets nor cars, and the perfumes of the “Macchia Mediterranea” are so intense that they leave an indelible trace in the memory of its visitors. This is certainly the ideal place for trekking lovers. We spend the evening on the boat with some good Sicilian wine, holding all the perfumes of this land.
Stay in Levanzo, moored in a haven, for suggestive baths in the peace of a deserted beach while admiring the fishes that populate the coastal waters: the blue of the sea will never be more intense. For dinner, you can taste the culinary specialties of the island.
In the morning, we set sail towards Marettimo, a green island full of springs and spectacular sea caves. Marettimo is surmounted by a high mountain with rocks similar to the ones of the Dolomites, falling sheer into a deep and turquoise sea. Not far from it, we find two imposing rocks: Maraone and Formica. Scuba diving lovers will be able to explore the many marine caves surrounding this paradise. After an intense day by the sea, what we need is a cool aperitif all together, admiring the sunset and waiting for our dinner in the port! The evening will celebrate music at “la Scaletta”, a restaurant with a typical marine atmosphere, overlooking the port.
In the last day of our trip, we sail back to Marsala to spend the night in the port. We end the week with a nice dinner on board or at a seaside restaurant: a good-bye toast to our new friends and the wonderful sea, happy and at the same time sad for the end of our sailing adventure in the Aegadians. Return to the Marina at 18:00 with overnight stay in the port included.
Day 8: Check-out
Disembarkation is scheduled by 9 a.m. on Saturday.
The itinerary may be subject to variations based on weather conditions, safety conditions and the technical assessments of the captain of the boat. This program is intended as indicative and not binding.
Marettimo is the ideal island for lovers of trekking and excursions. It is the most mountainous island of the Egadi archipelago and offers different routes as well as colorful vegetation with hundreds of different plants. Definitely worth a visit the Punta Troia Castle, without forgetting Punta Basano, the Roman Houses, Punta Libeccio, Semaforo and Cala Bianca. Coming on a cruise to the Egadi Islands, remember to pack shoes and technical clothing for trekking together with your costumes: it will definitely be worth it! As for the beaches, Marettimo is a cross between the more accessible Favignana and the more rocky Levanzo. The landing places of Scalo Vecchio and Scalo Nuovo, on both sides of the port, the beach of the Cemetery and that of Cretazzo are not to be missed. without forgetting the splendid Cala Nera, probably the most beautiful beach in Marettimo and reachable only by boat.
