This 3 hour coast to coast boat trip was marketed with multiple snorkelling stops and looking in the caves. It was at most one snorkelling stop with a glance at caves at the club med resort, where no one was told why we were stopping...More

Great trip, everything safe & on time! Too little time for visit to 3 islands, so better to make 2 islands tour. Beaches/swimming on islands very nice. Pity coffee/water on board were charged, but thats the only minus, great day & fun!

I went on this trip with my son, it's advertised as a snorkeling trip with a big picture of a snorkeller across the front of poster. In fact it's just a boat trip with a bit of swimming thrown in. The spots we stopped at...More

We are most disgusted and disappointed with the abrupt cancellation of the day trip to the Aeolian Islands including Stromboli anticipated for Tuesday 26 September. Before organising our fortnight trip by car around Sicily we telephoned them ( in Italian ) to ensure that with...More

We booked last minute to do the coastal tour with VST, we were let down by Cefalu Sailing. We done the tour from 2.30-5.30pm. It was our last day and it topped our honeymoon off perfectly. We brought our one year old with us aswell,...More

Literally everything was. We had a wonderful day trip from Cefalu to Salina, Panarea and Stromboli that allowed us to experience three very different places affordably and with plenty of time to relax, and still see the sights. Special thanks to Giuseppe for the restaurant...More
