What is the best time of year Sicily boat charter?

One of the reasons that Sicily is such a popular sailing destination is because of the weather! The sailing conditions are also excellent; with steady winds from April to October and reliable currents, it will be smooth sailing on your Sicily yacht charter. It is important to be aware that the summer is Sicily’s high season so if you want to avoid large crowds, we’d recommend visiting in late Spring or early autumn. The weather will still be warm enough to go for a swim, and you’ll get better deals on boat charters in Sicily!


What can I see and do while on a private yacht charter in Sicily?

Sicily is an absolutely breathtaking island and there are so many amazing things to do. Here are some of our favourite things to do in Sicily with your yacht rental.

  • Go diving: One of the best places to go diving in Sicily is off the coast of the city of Trapani. Here you can find some incredible coral reefs and a huge variety of marine life. If you're looking for something a little more challenging, then the island of Favignana is definitely worth checking out. This is one of the best spots in Sicily for wreck diving, as there are a number of shipwrecks situated just off the coast.
  • Go to the beach: Sicily has no shortage of beautiful, sandy beaches! One of the most popular beaches on the island is Mondello Beach, which is located just outside of Palermo. This beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing and simply taking in the stunning views. Another great option is Isola Bella, which is a small island located just off the coast of Taormina. This beach is a little more secluded and therefore perfect if you're looking for a bit of peace and quiet.
  • Take a day trip: Renting a yacht in Sicily grants you the freedom to visit nearby destinations. Sicily itself is home to numerous tiny islands that can be explored, as well as several larger ones such as Stromboli and Lipari. For those who want to venture further afield, there are many other places to explore; Malta, Sardinia, Tunisia and the Aeolian Islands are all within easy reach by sea.
  • Practise watersports: If you want more than lazying around on golden sands, Sicily is the place to be. For hiking and river rafting, head to Gole dell Alcantara, the perfect spot for any adventurer. If you’re a fan of fishing, head to Isola Bella, a stunning beach lined with colourful fishing boats. It’s also a great spot for snorkelling! Finally, go to the long sandy beach of San Vito Lo Capo where you can find heart-racing activities like windsurfing and kayaking.


Should I have a skipper on board my private yacht rental in Sicily?

Even if you have a licence to sail, we recommend choosing a vessel with a skipper on board for your Sicily yacht rental. Skippers add a lot of value to your sailing holiday by ensuring that you see everything on your itinerary and more. Not only are they nautical professionals that will dock, anchor and sail the vessel for you, but they are also locals who will give you recommendations about where to go and what to see. If you’re lucky, they might even show you some hidden gems on the island. For a personalised boat trip in Sicily, choose a skippered vessel!

What type of boat should I choose for my Sicily yacht rental?

The type of boat you choose for your Sicily boat charter will depend on the amount of time you plan to spend on the water and what sort of amenities you think you’ll need on board. If you don’t need a kitchen, bathroom or bedroom and you only plan to rent for a few days, then we’d recommend a daily charter such as a motorboat or RIB. For a holiday of a week or more, you might need something a bit more spacious that is fully equipped with cabins and other accommodations. These vessels would include catamarans or yachts, which are great for a sailing trip with family or friends.

No matter which sort of vessel you’re looking for, you’re sure to find the best vessel for your Sicily boat trip with Scansail.
