Boat tours Mondello Palermo
We offer you a day trip on a sailboat, either for your exclusive use or in the company of a few others, with a skipper at your complete disposal, surrounded by Saracen towers, sea stacks, tuna fisheries, wonderful bays and coves – and with a bit of luck, dolphins, too!
Sailing in Palermo Mondello Sferracavallo Isola delle Femmine
Treat yourself to a relaxing day out, leaving the stresses and strains behind to savour the sun, sea and fresh air.
When the anchor drops, you can enjoy a wonderful dip in the crystal-clear water or don the snorkelling equipment and explore the sea bed. At lunchtime, if you like, the skipper will be more than happy to prepare a delicious bowl of spaghetti for you on board the boat accompanied by some fine white wine, Avola almond biscuits, a sweet Zibibbo dessert wine and espresso coffee.
Our sailboat is certified to carry 12 people, but nevertheless our preference is to travel with no more than 8 guests.
We hope to see you soon,

“Really nice tour”
We really enjoyed the sailing tour. Alfredo and his colleague knew the answers to all our questions about Palermo and told us some fun facts. The lunch was very good, made of fresh pasta and homemade pesto. Throughout the tour we took swims in the clear blue sea and we could swim into a beautiful cave. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't too good for sailing since it was very windy. That caused our tour to be shorter and we had to get back to the haven 1,5 hours early, which was a shame since we have not seen as much much of the island as we wanted to.

Had a tour for 7 hours. Went around the coast with two stops to swim. Perfect and very relaxing. Nice sailboat and very friendly crew (Father and son).
Beautiful clear water. Very nice to take a short sailing trips away from Palermo on a hot day.
This is a tour it is worth taking!!!
We arrived at 9:45 and our captain was waiting for us. Alfredo was very nice and good company. His son is the skipper and both were very professional. We had a truly memorable afternoon sailing around the harbor and swimming off the boat. They supplied snorkeling equipment and made a delicious pasta lunch. We waited in the harbor for another group that was 45 minutes late and never showed up. The other customers had no regard that we arrived at the meeting place on time and continued to wait. We left port without them because they did not meet the time limit. Be considerate of other passengers when you book this trip. Check the meeting spot on their website because it is clearly stated.

Sixtieth birthday party
It was absolutely fabulous! We all loved the tour very much! The pasta with pesto and cheese was delicious, paired well with wine. Swimming in the Mediterranean was an unique pleasant experience. We will always have fond memories of the trip and have plenty of photos to share with friends and family.
“Very quiet and relaxing day on the sea.”
We had a great time. We had the boat all to yourself. I would recommend this to anyone for a calm or romantic day. The lunch was great also.

Boat trip 5 June 2017
We booked directly with Alfredo and he went to special lengths to accommodate us, giving up what he had planned as a day off.
Our party consisted of me, my wife and our autistic son, whom Alfredo treated brilliantly.
Alfredo made two lengthy stops so that we could swim in the sea. He served a fine lunch within drinks including two very agreeable local wines as well as beer and soft drinks.
The trip was well planned. The boat was very nice and Alfredo's company was excellent. While he modestly claims to speak little English, he is in fact more than competent and we chatted about a variety of local and international issues.
Alfredo is a charming man, an excellent skipper and a genial host. I thoroughly recommend a trip on his boat.

Exceptional Sailboat tour.
Alfredo has an exceptional knack of making you feel welcome and at home on his sailboat. The tour was a full seven hours from Cala Harbor to Montello Bay and back with lunch and wine. Very well done. However. Alfredo needs to cite a meeting place at the harbor with the voucher. No such place was noted and we actually had to have one of his competitors (who had signage) call him to get directions.Also he claims his boat is large enough for twelve people but limits the total, including two crew, to ten. We had six plus two crew and it was getting cramped. Eight plus two would be uncomfortable. A map of the water to be traveled on their website would be an asset as well. Overall a very pleasant experience once we found Alfredo.

“Blue sky and sea”
My wife and I booked the half day sailing tour with Alfredo for the end of April. It was a clear sunny day and the Tyrrhenian Sea was calm and clear; sadly though the water was still quite cold and we didn't have any wet suits with us, so unfortunately we couldn't swim. That really hurt because the waters looked so inviting.
Anyway Alfredo and his daughter were still dynamite. They were gracious hosts who were friendly without being invasive; he was the intrepid sailor and she was the awesome chef. We left the harbour on time and sailed round the outskirts of Palermo passing by some awesome caves and local beach fronts. By the time we were approaching Mondello there was so much to see; from young kids wind surfing to adults kayaking and kite surfing, it was just very colorful and my wife and I just kept imagining what it would be like in summer when it gets a little warmer.
Alfredo's daughter made us a nice pasta dish with fresh pesto and almonds; it was so simple yet yummy. This was the best meal we had in Palermo throughout our 3 night stay; and yes our dining experience in Palermo was subpar, however she definitely cooks a very good pasta. If I was to return to Palermo I'll definitely do this again, but will ensure I come when it is warmer so we can go snorkelling.

We loved Alfredo and our sailing adventure. Swimming off his boat in the clear, cool Mediterranean Sea was great. His lunch for six, prepared right on the sailboat was superb.
Did not know how to leave a comment on your page: We are the German and her Spanish/Brazilian daughter the comment before mentions, and we were delighted by the sailing trip, the confidence inspiring and super friendly Crew, and our co-sailors. We met them again ashore in Palermo in the evening and spent a few more nice hours with them - a lovely couple from GB/South Africa.
This cruise made our holidays in Palermo perfect and we will be back.
“Fantastic. Unforgettable. Do not miss!”
We had such a good time on this yatch this review could go on forever. From scenery to crystal clear seas from excellent food cooked on board to great service Alfredo and Giovanni gave us a day that we'll never forget.
The yatch is a good size and kept in top condition, much better than any picture on the website. Also the service is very attentive without being invasive of your private space. Top Sicilian hospitality on the water. After a few minutes we all felt like we were with good friends.
Alfredo and Giovanni know that sea like the back of their hands, so not only they can suggest alternative itineraries if the weather or winds are against you but you get all the history and curiosities of the coast if you're interested. And diving off the boat and snorkelling in the best spots come as standard. If you love the sea and you're in Palermo this is as good as it gets.
Plenty of drinks and amazing good food was cooked and offered to us on board. We booked the yatch for a birthday and everything was just perfect, even the delicious cake. Wish I could do it everyday. Thank you very much. Looking forward to doing it all again.

“Great day out”
We set sail bang on time and we were joined by an Aussie, his Finnish wife, a German and her Spanish /Brazilian daughter, six of us in total. Giovanni and Alfredo were the perfect hosts. Unfortunately there wasn't enough wind to do any hardcore sailing so we spent much of the time moored up in various bays swimming and snorkeling. The water was out of this world. Perfect azure. We were cooked pasta with pesto for lunch and it was delicious. Also as much beer and water as we could want as well as a dessert wine and coffee. All in all a good day out.

Excellent. Alfredo was fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable, and gracious. Compared our excursion with others when we returned to the ship and made us even happier we opted to take the sailing excursion. Memories to last a lifetime. Well worth the value.

We had a great day with Alfredo and Giovanni! Unlike many boat tours I´ve taken on holidays, this one is not so childish or out to score easy points. It was very pretty, the staff was incredibly friendly, lunch was great. We had a wonderful day really. The only thing I would´ve wanted was more info on what we saw as we sailed around, it would have been fun to hear more history of Sicily. The English was limited but sufficient. Thank you!

“The best day!!!”
I, my mother and my 9 year old daughter went on a day trip today with Alfredo and his son. Cruising along the Palermo coastline, we had the chance to bathe and snorkel in crystal clear water which you would expect in the Caribbean, not in Europe. Alfredo and his son are super nice, will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and fine. After 5 days of total Palermo madness, this was a day of peace, beauty and pure happiness. Even my daughter who usually never stops speaking was taken away by the beauty of the day and kept silent. The lunch was delicious just as the wine and the Zibbibbo! When in Palermo, do not hesitate to spend money and enjoy one of the best experiences! This was my most favourite holiday experience ever!!!!

The trip was very beauftiful. On sunny Sunday we made trip with Alfredo & Crew and only 2 other peoples. Start was at 10 and Alfredo was a nice trip, who can cook delicious noodles :) We made a stop nearly the Mondello beach - blue water, nice temperatur - perfect for swimming! At an other part of the beautiful beaches we made a nice stop, where we could snorkel...it was soooooo nice! Thank you very much!

If you are in Palermo and seek to have something exciting, this tour is THE must-take.
Friendly staff, great service and fantastic view.
Overall I highly recommend the whole excitements I've got through this tour.
And the pasta, a sailor's daughter made us for a lunch was probably the best pasta we've had in our whole trip in Italy.

“Our most memorable experience in Sicily!”
A few months ago 4 of us traveled to Palermo. We had been thinking about a sailing tour, but we didn't make any arrangements in advance due to our hectic schedule. As soon as we got to Palermo, we were determined to get out on the beautiful, blue water. I emailed Alfredo, and within an hour he responded with availability for the very next day! It was just the 4 of us on the boat, and by far our favorite thing that we did while visiting Sicily. Alfredo was wonderful. He was very kind, and he was a good mix of being a tour guide while also letting us relax and chat among ourselves. He also insisted that we drink the delicious wine and stopped in the bay so we could snorkel (and provided all of the gear!). My only complaint is that the tour had to end, I wish I could be out there now! YOU MUST GO. It is so reasonably priced for what you get, and it really shows the beauty of Sicily. Such a nice change of pace from Palermo. Many thanks to Occhio Al Boma!!

A very enjoyable day on the water. Alfredo and his son were excellent sailors!
Good wine and a nice lunch was much appreciated. The only thing that would have been better is if the sun had been out!

The skipper and his son were very friendly and welcoming on the boat. The spots we were taken to were breath-taking and to swim in the sea was wonderful.
Lunch was lovely and the small group I was with was just right for the trip.
Sailing for the day is a must see, and is also a different way of exploring Sicily.
“Relaxing afternoon cruise”
Thanks so much to Alfredo and his son who were perfect hosts for our afternoon trip. We were supposed to do a day trip but it was cancelled due to bad weather the days before so we were glad there was a free space for an afternoon trip. Very relaxed feel, great scenery along the way and they stopped when we wanted to go snorkelling...plus they offered us beer and wine when we wanted and nibbles, so everyone was happy. Thanks for putting up with my imperfect Italian Alfredo & helping out when my son didn't feel great on the choppy seas ! would recommend to anyone...Nicky and family

“We had a special day that we'll remember forever”
It was my a wonderful part of our Sicily experience and an incredible way to spend a day.
“Relaxed, calm and beautiful ”
With great hosts, captain Alfredo and his son Giovanni, we spent a lovely afternoon at sea. With a easy phone call we recieved detailed information and place to meet. Alfredo took us to a hidden gem, with crystal clear water. We borrowed snorkelling equipment and was served some tasty pesto sanwiches. Beer and sicilian wine served with a smile made the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.
We highly recommend booking with Alfredo, and if they have room in the schedule, make it a whole day.
“Great day out!”
I booked the trip early due to the review on tripadvisor. Despite the other two passenger falling in, Alfredo and his daughter and son still took my sister and I out and we ended up having the sail boat all to ourselves. We visited a nice fishing village where they treated us to some yummy gelato (thank you!) and we stopped at two different spot for swimming. Lunch was a simple pasta, we felt like we were on a family trip and Alfredo happened to pick us up along the way! Overall a lovely day thank you so much again!
“Excellent guide, delicious lunch and gorgeous sights.”
Lovely day spent seeing the sights of Palermo coast. mondello bay was the highlight! Alfredo provided us with snorkels, fins, and a delicious lunch and introduced us to Zibibbo and biscotti for dessert.
“Awesome day, very cool family run business!!”
what an amazing way to spend a day on the water! The boat only allows up to 10 people which makes for a very personable experience. The food was great not to mention the beer and wine kept on coming! Great way to escape the action of the city and take in some great sights of the surrounding islands and coast! Highly recommend and would tell anyone going to plan a day on the water
“A great day at sea.”
An intimate and brilliant day on the sea. We were met by Alfredo and his daughter, julienne at the meeting point and were taken to this lovely sailing boat. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we met and that attentiveness stayed with us the whole day. We sailed to a lovely cove, where the water was so blue and clear. Julienne made a fantastic pasta and pesto lunch washed down with chilled white wine, bliss!!
We continued to another cove, before the long relaxing sail back. Thank you for a great day.
“Lovely day sailing”
This was a great day out, not a lot of sailing because of conditions but that is luck of the draw. Alfredo and his son were great hosts and it's a great opportunity to get off the beaten track a bit.
my friends and I had so much fun on the 4 hour trip. Alfredo and her daughter were really nice and friendly, they also gave us drinks and snacks for free! The day was sunny and the sea was calm = perfect day for a sailing trip! Thank you Alfredo and Juliana would definitely recommend to others!
“Amazing sailing tour!”
We met at the designated landmark and were warmly greeted by Alfredo who made us feel welcomed. There was a total of 4 of us and the boat fit us all comfortably. Although there was not enough wind that day for sailing (but lots of sun) Alfredo made that best of it and we calmly cruised up the coast. The views were spectacular and the water was crystal, at the midway point we stopped and shared a bottle of local wine and a sicilian-style pizza. We would definitely do this again and recommend it to everyone for an affordable and unique tour. Grazie Miele Alfredo!
“Best Boat Trip”
My wife and I had a great time during our boat trip with Occhio Al Boma, I really recommend it. Forget other crowded boat trips. With Alfredo you will feel like at home... on a boat: ) So go ahead and book a trip with Occhio right away. You will not regret it. Thanks Alfredo for everything ; )
“Very worthwhile and unforgettable sailboat excursion ”
If you visit San Vito lo Capo you cannot miss this excursion! It's an all-day excursion from San Vito, crossing the magnificent Riserva Naturale Dello Zingaro, to Scopello. You can admire the sea, the nature and the breathtaking landscape. Also the sailboat is perfectly equipped for the passengers to snorkel with the spectacular fishes and swim to the different coasts. For lunch you are offered a delicious dish of Sicilian pasta. A warm and friendly welcome aboard Captain Alfredo's beautiful sailboat "Bleu" , I highly recommend it to all, family, couples,etc. Excellent excursion!!!

I highly recommend a tour of the yacht "Blue"! Captain Alfredo, reliable, confident, calm and very pleasant to talk to people! I was very afraid of the sea and an open water, but with Alfredo I was quite calm! With family, we had an amazing day, celebrating my birthday on the yacht "Blue"!

“A must do trip - if you only do one do this one”
A gorgeous boat, and great hosts. Loved Alfredo and Patricia his lovely wife. There was 6 of us on the day trip and we avoided the other boat crowds. Alfredo showed us a cave to swim into which was amazing. He is very passionate about what he does and it makes for a wonderful day. Very knowledgeable, i enjoyed the day so much i would have loved to have done it again whilst we were there. Thank you Alfredo and Patricia and one day hope to see you again. Vicky x
“Fantastic day out”
Alfredo and Patricia were superb hosts to a party of 7 Irish and English cousins and partners under 25's with the grand old daddy Bob. We set off for the afternoon with high expectations with winds gusting up to 25 knots but the Zingaro mountains created variable winds so we ended up motoring to 3 lovely coves for swimming. The highlight was the antics of our young friends when jellyfish where spotted. Much frantic splashing and swimming followed which added to the fun. The break was finally topped off with a lovely refreshments including a great little Sicilian Bianco. Alfredo let me get sailing out of my system by taking the tiller on the trip back under full sail and we made some good progress until the wind dropped and we had to motor back into port. Thank you Alfredo and Patricia for being such great hosts and Alfredo your "elementary English" is better than you think. The Cockney Cheeky Boy sends his greetings.
“Wonderful day in beautiful Sicily”
Me and 3 girlfriends booked this day trip while on vacation in San Vito lo Capo and it was a wonderful day to spend the day. Everything was great: the boat, our captains, lunch on the boat, fun and relaxing way to spend the day. Highly recommend!
“Lovely day out”
We had a lovely sailing trip. Unfortunately there wasn't much wind but that didn't spoil the fun. It was a great way to view the reserve from the water and Alfredo stopped at a number of different bays to allow us to snorkel. The highlight of the trip was spotting 3 dolphins which swam right beside the boat. Recommended.
"A fabulous days sailing with wonderful hosts”
We had a really great days sailing with Alfredo and Patricia around the Zingaro nature reserve and Scopello. Alfredo skippered the yacht expertly and Patricia was very informative about the places we visited. They knew the best places to go for snorkelling in crystal clear waters. They made us feel very welcome on their boat and looked after us and the children wonderfully. My husband helped crew the boat as he enjoys hands on sailing while the rest of us relaxed on the deck! A great day out 0 highly recommended.
“Fantastic sailing trips with Occhio Al Boma !”
We had two wonderful sailing trips with Occhio Al Boma on the coast of Zingaro Natural Reserve and Mount Cofano Natural Reserve. It was a relief after the super-crowded San Vito beaches. We could swim in crystal clear waters of beautiful bays. Skipper Alfredo (who is also a wine expert) and his "crew" (wife Patrizia and son Giovanni) were perfect hosts and set a very friendly and fun atmosphere. The Grecanico aperitif was a pleasant surprise. If you are in San Vito with friends and family, I highly recommend to charter Occhio al Boma for one day trips !
"We highly recommend spending time aboard the Bleu"
The value of the trip was truly outstanding considering the professionalism, lunch, beverages, and overall experience that was included. It really is a great deal! We highly recommend spending time aboard the Bleu to anyone visiting San Vito lo Capo -, experienced sailors, first-timers, families, couples--everyone! We can't wait for our next trip to San Vito lo Capo where we will definitely spend another day aboard Bleu with Captain Alfredo and his crew!
