SNORKELING & DIVING

The unspoiled, clear and warm waters off Sicily and the offshore islands is spectacular and also great for snorkeling and scuba-diving. The shoreline varies from pebbles to sandy beaches, private coves, grottoes and rock formations. The waters are rich in fish, making for an exciting underwater experience. A unique snorkeling experience awaits you on Vulcano islands, where you can snorkel in warm waters naturally heated by thermal activity!

CYCLING

All but the most serious cyclists may have a difficult time on the steep terrain of much of the island. It does not have to be a challenging tour though, cycling is also a great way to sightsee and discover the rich cultural and historic heritage in the quieter towns and resorts across Sicily.

FISHING

Thanks to its varied coastline with steep volcanic cliffs, sea stacks, limestone flats and the many small offshore islands, Sicily is one of the best fishing destinations across Europe. Predators like Barracuda, Bluefish, Grouper, Seabass or Amberjack are commonly found in the clear waters and are not difficult to face. Fishing is possible all around Sicily and trips run from a couple of hours to a few days.

KAYAKING

Especially on the Eastern side of the island, the rugged coastline with the calm waters offers perfect conditions to explore some hidden caves and grottoes while enjoying the refreshing blue sea. You can also enjoy the offshore islands by kayak and explore some of the active volcanic heritage.

CANYONING & COASTEERING

Walk, swim and jump into the refreshing waters on a coasteering or canyoning adventure while you discover some of Sicily's amazing nature. This is a fun way to get out of your comfort zone and explore rivers, gorges and other parts of nature which otherwise seem inaccessible. Whether it's jumping off a waterfall or sliding into whitewater, this is a fun adventure for anyone who enjoys the water and outdoors.
