Day 1

PORTOROSA

Departure from your home airport, arrival on the island of Sicily in Catania or Palermo. We meet at the Portorosa yacht marina.

On the way to the yacht marina, we recommend visiting Taormina, famous for its beautiful bay and picturesque sea views. Upon arrival, we gather the whole group, have a rest, have lunch in a local cafe. We buy food and water (the Lipar Islands do not have their own fresh water, so prices are much higher than on the main island), receive the yacht, and check in.

In the evening, a welcome party in the restaurant or on board.

Overnight stay on the yacht in the marina.

Day 2

Portorosa - Vulcano island (20 miles, 3.5 hours)

This is the southernmost island, which is a confluence of several volcanoes, one of which – Fossa – is still active. For those who like active recreation, we recommend climbing to the sleeping craters of the volcanoes. For those who like to relax, you can visit the city and, if you wish, swim in the healing mud and thermal springs.

All the settlements on the islands are very interesting, with narrow lanes and ancient architecture.

Overnight on the yacht in the marina.

Day 3

Vulcano island - Stromboli island (27 miles, 4.5 hours)

We are heading to the island of contrasts Stromboli – a place where the terrace of snow-white houses offers a fantastic view of the black and blue sand beaches.
We will enjoy a stunning view from the top of the crater, 926 metres above sea level. And of course! At the top of the volcano we will meet the sunset, see the volcano in action, with lava eruptions.

Overnight on the yacht, anchorage.

Day 4

Stromboli island - Panarea island

New day – new island. We are in Panarea, a favourite destination of Hollywood stars and a mecca for divers. Who are you today: a celebrity or a diver?

Between the rocks of Lysca Bianca and Bottari, we will explore the remains of sunken ships. And here you can see underwater fumaroles – cracks in the slopes of the volcano that release bubbles of volcanic gas. And here, by the way, a snorkelling mask will come in handy.

Day 5

Panarea island - Salina island (is optional) - Lipari island

Salina is known for its wild vineyards and picturesque forests. The main town of Santa Marina is small and pretty, and the Church of the Madonna del Tercito is the main attraction. 

Lipari Island is the largest island of the archipelago. It is one of the oldest settlements on Earth – it is 6,000 years old. Ancient city walls and sheer volcanic cliffs, developed infrastructure and many attractions, including an incredible fortress. Here you can also taste delicious wine, the pride of local winemakers – Malvasia delle Lipari, a sweet wine made from dried grapes. We recommend going quad biking or renting a car and driving around the island.
Overnight on a yacht in the marina.

Day 6

Lipari island - Milazzo

Milazzo is located on the northeastern coast of the island of Sicily, on the western side of the bay. The population of this amazing town is only thirty-two thousand inhabitants, the town is quite small, and here you can relax in a special way – calmly and sincerely. We recommend visiting the beautiful Norman fortress of the XIII century. This fortress can be called a very beautiful structure that you can explore for hours and not lose interest. In addition to the Norman fortress, every tourist can visit the Church of San Francesco di Paola. Once upon a time, the cannon of one of the enemy’s ships hit the Church of San Francesco di Paola instead of the fortress, and since then the shell has been sticking out of the church wall to this day. By the way, it was in this city that one of the most famous battles took place, when Garibaldi’s ships defeated the Bourbons.

Day 7

Milazzo - Portorosa

We return to the marina of Portorosa. Our last fantastic sunset of this trip, nightly conversations, viewing photos together and, of course, plans for the next trip with Sparks Life!

Day 8

In the morning, check-out of the yacht.

On the way to Catania, I recommend the picturesque town of Savoca. The film The Godfather was filmed in Savoca! Be sure to take a photo near the same bar.

Departure from Catania to your home airport.

Frequently asked questions

Can I go on a tour alone if I have no company?

Yes, of course. You have the opportunity to join a group tour and book a cabin for two people or one place in a double cabin based on gender. We have a lot of people who travel alone because it’s a great way to meet new cool people who are just as charged with adventure and unforgettable experiences.

Can I choose a cabin on the tour?

If you are one of the first to book, then you have the opportunity to book the desired cabin for yourself. The rest of the cabins are distributed among the participants according to the order of booking.

Does the tour price include yacht insurance?

All yachts rented by charter companies are insured.

What is a yacht deposit and why is it required?

The charter company needs to be sure that you will not damage the expensive yacht you have rented, and if you do, you will reimburse the cost of repairs. For this purpose, the team is charged a security deposit, which is refunded in full if the week has passed without any breakdowns. If you break any part of the yacht, equipment, or cause physical damage to the boat and are unable to fix it, the amount for repairs will be deducted from the deposit. The amount of the security deposit is always distributed equally among all team members on board.

What should I do if I get seasick and feel sick?

99% of people on the planet feel motion sickness on the 1st day of boarding because the vestibular system of a healthy person has to adapt to new conditions. Throughout the week, you will feel comfortable and adapted to the waves because we create routes where the waters are predictable and calm. However, in case of client’s anxiety, we always recommend that you take anti-seasickness pills (dramamine) with you, just in case. In addition to the pills, our captains have several effective life hacks that work perfectly every time, so put aside all your worries and get ready for the trip.

I don't know how to swim. Can I go on a yacht?

Yes, of course you can. Each yacht has life jackets for swimming, and the skipper will take you to and from the shore by boat whenever you need it.

Are there any age restrictions?

The average age of our yacht tour participants is from 25 to 45. We also have group family tours, where children from 5 years old also take part.

Is there Wi-Fi on the yacht?

Almost all Sparks Life routes are not far from the shore, and the phone confidently catches the connection and the Internet almost all the time. Also, almost every side of the yacht is additionally equipped with a WiFi router. Check the conditions with us in advance.

Who will be in the team? How do I meet the Captain?

Sparks Life yacht tours are given to those who booked the fastest because the number of seats on board is always limited. These are always active and very interesting people, with different professions, prosthetics, and a common thirst for new adventures and emotions. The average age of the team is from 25 to 37 years. A week before the tour, we add all the participants to the team’s general chat, where they can get acquainted with the rest of the team and the captain.

How much time will we spend at sea and how much on land?

Usually, our routes are designed so that we have the opportunity to moor every evening in the marinas of different cities and islands. But if you want a more wild and secluded vacation, you can stop in deserted bays for the night and enjoy the sea and nature around you, without any fuss. Every day we go along a planned route, where we make stops for swimming, riding on hoes/kayaks, diving with flippers and masks in the open sea. We arrive at a new bay in the afternoon, in the late afternoon, and go sightseeing. Every day we have a new city and very often a sightseeing program is planned on the shore (with free time). It can be scooter/bike riding, a city walk, wine tasting, or a reserved table at a Michelin-starred restaurant.

What are the amenities on the yacht?

Our tours always feature yachts no older than 5 years. Each yacht has 3 or 4 double cabins, a shower, and a toilet. A full kitchen. Additional refrigerator for sparkling wine. There is a place on board for sunbathing and parties at sunset, which allows you to fully enjoy the sails and the sea. And if you’re lucky enough to get to the destinations where Sparks Life organizes a catamaran tour, you will feel what a real luxury vacation is.

What city do you depart from?

You can join us from any city. We will guide you to the place and time of gathering at the yacht marina. We can also help you find a convenient flight and organize a transfer from the airport to the yacht.
