3-day Sailing in Italy, Tuscany islands experience

Why sailing in Tuscany?

You will enjoy a sailing experience, in a safe environment that will allow you to relax and feel the pleasure that only sailing boat can offer. Hiking is also part of this program.

Sailing in Italy is a great opportunity for an amazing active vacation to enjoy  Italian food, clear waters and relax. In particular, in Tuscany, we have a wonderful Archipelago that is composed of seven islands. It offers clear waters, often untouched natural settings, wonderful beaches and the chance to sail the open seas while not being far from land. We are in the heart of Ligurian Sea Cetacean Sanctuary; the park was established in 1991 as a protected marine area of international interest. The enormous concentration of marine mammals is mainly due to the rich food resources found in these waters.

From art and history standpoint, on each island, there are important historical remains of Romans, of Medici family from Florence or from Napoleon. Opportunity for wonderful trekking adventure with stunning views.

Sailing in Italy, Tuscany island day 1 – Capraia island and dolphins

Viareggio: 8:30 welcome on-board. After a quick briefing on tour planning, ground rules (including health and safety, security, environment), we will enjoy a wonderful sailing experience towards Capraia island (approx 10 hours), an uncontaminated and wild place, a true corner of paradise where time stops in its tracks. The island of Capraia, part of the Arcipelago Toscano National Park since 1996, is the ideal destination for sea lovers. Capraia is also in the heart of Marine mammal sanctuary. Sometimes little dolphins are getting close to the boat and surfing in the wave created by us. This is a magic gift for us; it can last a few seconds or minutes, they decide! If you like, we will use spinnaker or gennaker to maximize the pleasure of moving fast.

Sailing in Italy, Tuscany island day 2 – Trekking in Capraia and relax

Sailing in Italy offers multiple opportunities. Today, in fact, we will challenge ourselves with a trekking experience in Capraia. Depending on our appetite, we can choose different solutions; from a nice walk of about 1 km to visit the town starting from the port or about 10 km 6 hours walking. Following this path we will reach the top of the island; a truly breath-taking view of Mediterranean sea the islands close to Capraia like Elba and Corsica.

Sailing in Italy, Tuscany island day 3 – Sunbath and sailing towards Viareggio

Today we will sail back to Viareggio. This is a great opportunity to relax or to become a more proficient skipper by conducting the sailing boat (if you like) and learning how to adjust the setting of the sails to maximize speed, comfort, and security.
