Tips for your tours

Be inspired to choose the destination of your holiday!
The port of departure is Marina di Portorosa
, Furnari, which is located near the archipelago of the Aeolian islands – a highly sought-after destination. You need at least one week to visit all the islands of the archipelago. If you want to know and experience the atmosphere of each island, we recommend a 2-week trip.

From 2022, we offer a new boarding option in Sicily: Palermo. They are designed for those who wish to combine a sea cruise with a stay in the largest Sicilian city.

The closest island to the Marina is Vulcano, that can be reached in 3 hours of sailing. If you like, you can also visit other attractive destinations, such as Cefalù, Palermo, San Vito Lo Capo, the Aegadian islands, but you will need at least 2 weeks.

The choice of your destination mostly depends on the weather conditions which our staff will communicate during your sailing trip.

What our clients say about us

Sono appena tornata da una vacanza in barca a vela nell'arcipelago delle Eolie, con le sue sette meravigliose isole: PANAREA, LIPARI,SALINA,VULCANO,STROMBOLI,ALICUDI e FILICUDI. Bellissima esperienza assolutamente da provare!!!! Grande ed unica la professionalità e competenza del Sig. Antonio, Cristina e di tutto lo staff della GAIS.
Chartered Notus (Dufour GL382) in Marina di Portorosa starting from May 29 - boat is excellent, well-maintained by the team (well, I am not a big fan of automatic headsail, but that's it) - Krystina and team warmly welcomed us, was always in place to support us (even with fresh forecast) - absolutely no problems with the team or boat :) - we had children aboard, and they are excited by the vicinity of Lipari islands! Highly recommended! (however, if I were you, I would buy a handheld VHF and easy-to-use life vests, but it's again my preference and my highest note for the company and the boat remains the same)
