Day 1: Check-in
Check-in available from 17:00 at the Embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a brief presentation of the boat, you will be able to take your place in the cabins and embark the galley before setting sail. Dinner can be prepared on board or in a typical restaurant on the Marsala waterfront, and then we can visit the city's characteristic historic centre. We will spend the night in port.
In the morning we set off for Favignana and land in one of its enchanting coves: a swim in its blue waters, lunch on board, and you are ready to dock at the port. Favignana is the butterfly-shaped island, landing place of the mythical Ulysses where everything refers to the sea: the ancient traditions linked to tuna fishing make it a much sought-after destination for fans of this fish. A sunset dive off the island and dinner under the stars are the crowning glory of a day as magical as the land that hosts us.
Today we will sail with full sails off Favignana to enjoy its enchanting sea: sky, sea and land come together in an unforgettable landscape. An aperitif on the boat with good music will accompany another evening with our new friends!
In the morning we set anchor and sail to Levanzo, the smallest and wildest of the Egadi Islands. Here there are no roads or cars and the scents of the Mediterranean maquis are so intense that they leave an indelible mark on its visitors, ideal for trekking lovers. Evening by boat accompanied by good Sicilian wine that encapsulates all the fragrances of this land.
Stay in Levanzo, moored at anchor, for suggestive swims in the quiet of a deserted beach and to admire the fish that populate the coast: the blue of the sea will never seem so intense. At dinner, you can enjoy the island's culinary specialities.
In the morning we set sail for Marettimo, a green island, rich in springs and spectacular sea caves. Marettimo is topped by a high mountain with rocks very similar to the Dolomites, overlooking a deep turquoise sea, not far away, two imposing rocks: Maraone and Formica. Scuba diving enthusiasts will be able to explore the countless sea cavities surrounding this paradise. After an intense day at sea, a cool aperitif all together admiring the sunset while waiting for dinner in the harbour is just what you need! The evening will be marked by music at La Scaletta, a club with a typical marine atmosphere, overlooking the harbour.
On the last day of navigation, we sail to Marsala to spend the night in the port. Dinner on board or in a restaurant on the seafront rounds off the week: a farewell toast to new friends and the splendid sea, stifling the sadness of having finished this Egadi adventure. Return to the Marina at 18:00 with overnight stay in port included.
Day 8: Check-out
Disembarkation is expected by 09:00 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.
