Vintage boat tour in Palermo

“I found happiness in the darkest days of my life.” - Francesco Caci, captain of the Pajarita V

A 5 hour-trip along the Palermo coastline aboard an elegant and very comfortable 1960’s yacht.

The story of the captain of this boat is as fascinating as that of the sea that embraces Palermo.

Pajarita V is a comfortable and elegant motor yacht, the excursion of the coast lasts about 5 hours, and a Sicilian brunch is offered on board.
During the boat tour, we stop in all the most beautiful places on the coast: the Grotta Della Regina all'Acquasanta, part of a complex of thermal springs in which Carolina of Austria loved to bathe, the rocky blue sea of Punta Priola 'Addaura, and the turquoise and the sandy sea of Mondello.

On board everything necessary for snorkeling in the rich waters of the Gulf of Palermo.
It will be exciting to chat with Captain Francesco, his story is focused on the sea: years in the navy, on board in peace missions in the Persian Gulf, during the war in Bosnia and Africa.
Experiences that have marked his life and his sensitivity, once he returned to Sicily from his family, he felt the need to clean the seas from unexploded bombs of the ocean floor.

For years Francesco lived far from his sea, but then on a St. Valentine's Day, he gave his wife this 14-meter yacht, to be put back into the sea.
Just like the life of this beautiful family, that has dedicated body and soul to the boat, to life at sea, to the discovery of the beauty of our coast.

It is possible to organize the baptism of the sea with a professional diving instructor. The dives can take place in the Addaura canyon (near the small port Roosevelt), rich in pottery and tuna anchors, or at the Arenella, to discover an ancient wreck.
