So first of all - it is not a sailing boat but a normal motor boat. It also takes a minute to find it - the meeting point description isn’t that useful. The boat itself is rather new and comfortable but it wouldn’t fit more than 5 adults (plus skipper). We had the trip with a family (2 adults and 2 children) - it was fine as they wanted to be at the front of the boat and we wanted to be under the shade, but if all of us would prefer to be in the shade or in the sun - we probably couldn’t fit. I would recommend this tour if you are a group of 4-5 so that you can enjoy the full boat, because otherwise you have to be lucky to share the boat with nice people :) the tour takes however only 1.5h so you can maybe survive the sun for so long - there is also a break for 35mins next to the Scala dei Turchi so maybe it will be good enough :) The Scala is rather underwhelming from a distance but very beautiful if you swim up closer - much nicer view that from the beach itself :)

Too bad the boy from the boat only spoke Italian and didn't understand a word of English. The aperitif didn't amount to much either, a bottle of water or a bottle of beer, so you should definitely not do it for that. Fortunately, we did enjoy the silence because it was private and the beautiful views of the coast. In order to fill the time, some parts were already covered by bobbing, so for us it could take an hour less, but that we could just sail.

Beautiful way to see the Scala dei Turchi! Water so warm and inviting. 3 stops along way to swim and enjoy the sights. Definitely recommend.
