What you'll do

If you are willing to have a total summery experience, this is the right one for you! (We Can arrange different hours, ask please)
We'll meet at the Siracusa small port. From there, depending on the wind and on the weather conditions, we will go around the famous Ortigia island or straight to the caves. Ortigia is one of the most characteristic islands of the Sicilian East Coast and you can have an amazing view over the entire ancient harbor and castle of Siracusa from the sea!
I exceptionally decided to give you an option: If the day is good for waves, we can transform our SUP experience into a surfing one, going to the closest surfing spot - it's up to you!
Other things to note
Sunscreen and a hat, a t-shirt, to avoid to be sun burnt

Covid19 updates: The activity is safe and we don't have any contact, only small groups.
I grew up in Siracusa, I lived for ten years in Milan for my studies and for my work, I was Lawyer since when I decided to come back to my home town.
I was missing the sea, the wind and the waves. My life here in Siracusa is for the most of the day is based on my sports (Windsurfing, SUP surf, freediving and cycling) and my airbnb guests.
I'm well known in the surf community in Sicily and if there's wind and waves I'm always in the water! Surfers usually contact me if they want to know the weather conditions in this part of Sicily and if the conditions are good, they come to Siracusa!

Where you'll be

You'll have a special and unique view of the Island. Another prospect, going around the Ortigia island is a great experience, especially when we'll cross the bridge and passing close by the castle.

Fantastic way to spend a few hours in the ocean. Mario was a great host and instructor, showing us how to control the boards and paddle effectively. We went around the coast to several caves, with a few stops to relax en route. The views were amazing and Mario kindly took photos and sent them to us afterwards. He also gave us some restaurant recommendations. A wonderful, relaxed yet active experience, we would definitely recommend him to other travelers!

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit beim standup paddeln mit Mario. Er ist ein guter Lehrer, angenehmer Gesprächspartner und stellt den Spaß und die Sicherheit seiner Gäste in den Vordergrund. Er kennt tolle Spots in Syrakus und hat uns auch hilfreiche Tipps abseits unserer SUP-Tour gegeben. Wir können Mario voll und ganz weiterempfehlen!

Imagine the things you can see if you’re open to changing perspectives. Paddle boarding in Siracusa was captivating, a whole new view away from the foot path. On our journey Mario shared his delightful wisdom on the history of Siracusa and the catacombs as you can see from the water. He was very insightful on the entire trip and also made sure we were safe from the large boulders during our adventure. Mario truly shares the passion of living with nature and being aware of the land. There’s a spectacular experience on the board, one, working with your body and the waves to keep momentum and balance. Another, a freedom you can feel on the board to explore the waters like floating on a plank that will carry you where you want to go. It’s quite liberating to feel you can essentially balance on water. At the end of of trip Mario recommended a fantastic seafood restaurant “Red Moon”. I would highly recommend taking paddle boarding, wind surfing or even cycling lessons from Mario. Even staying in one of his quaint places in Siracusa.
