This was the most fantastic experience. 2 hours was perfect. The hosts own and operate the boat which is very modern and comfortable. Graciella was wonderful in making all 6 guests feel welcome and her husband ( sorry I have forgotten his name ) was a masterful boat driver. Entered a blue grotto cave with no issues.

This was a fantastic experience. The boat is lovely- totally spotless and comfortable. The husband and wife team who owns it are an incredible team. They love what they do and their warm and gracious hospitality makes you feel as if you were spending an afternoon with friends. It was such an enjoyable way to experience the beauty of Taormina from a different perspective. Book this tour- you won’t be sorry!!

Outstanding Trip!

The Blue Diamond is a lovely boat, cream leather seats throughout. The boat is owned by a lovely Sicilian couple whose knowledge of Sicily was second to non. Their attention to safety on board was very good. Snacks and prosecco on board. It was my birthday and they played ‘Happy Birthday’ which was a lovely touch. Visited 2 caves where they played Italian Opera to add to this wonderful experience. During the trip we stayed for a 20 min swim during the trip. On the way back they pushed the throttle down as we skimmed across the water..... truly exhilarating. This trip is safe for any age group and is easily accessible down a few steps.
