What you'll do

We'll have a 2 hours SUP experience including all the materials needed.
We meet at Marinella Beach and from there, depending on the wind and on the weather conditions, we will go around the famous Scala dei Turchi or into Marinella Bay.
First on the sand, we will practice all the movements you need to know and your balance on the board. Once you feel comfortable with it, we will jump into the water!
If the weather conditions allow it, we will go until the unique and amazing Scala dei Turchi, around 30min away by paddle. This is a spectacular stretch of coast and thanks to its peculiarity has become an icon of the Sicilian seaside tourism. We will enjoy some time there, observing the nature in its glory.
Then we will paddle back to where we started!

Where you'll be

Marinella Bay is surrounded by luxurious green nature, great for the practise of several water sports.
Scala dei Turchi ("Scale of the Turks") name derives from the fact that in ancient times the ships of marauding Arabs and Turks found shelter in this bay. Its rocks are made of a soft, limestone and a blinding white marl, worked over time, making it soft and sinuous, with the help of the sea. Simply beautiful!

This is a truly special experience! The Scala dei Turchi is closed for visitors, you can only see it from far away or from the sea - like on this tour! Our guide Peppino was very friendly, funny and welcoming and an experienced SUP-instructor. He made us feel safe on the boards and was very fun to interact with. At the original time of the tour the weather was bad, so they asked us if we want to cancel or reschedule. We rescheduled to the next morning and had a great tour in perfect weather. We paddled to the Scala and Peppino took lots of pictures for us. I would definitely recommend this for both the incredible view on the Scala and the fun during the paddling tour!

Abbiamo prenotato l'esperienza da principianti, senza sapere cosa aspettarci. Luogo stupendo e suggestivo per fare SUP, Marco e Giuseppe sono stati molto bravi, organizzati ed efficienti nella comunicazione. Giuseppe ci ha guidati nell'esperienza ed è stato paziente e rassicurante, senza chiederlo ci ha fatto un sacco di foto da vero esperto e ci ha fatto sentire benvenuti, è stato piacevole e amichevole. Esperienza molto consigliata!

Ist hatten eine tolle Tour im Sonnenuntergang mit Peppino. Er hat uns alles ganz in Ruhe erklärt und wir haben uns jederzeit sehr sicher mit ihm gefühlt. Das Erlebnis war wunderschön und eine ganz besondere Entdeckung. Vor allem weil man nicht mehr auf der Scala selbst gehen darf und vom Wasser aus einen besonderen Blick hatte. Peppino ist ein super cooler Typ gewesen und wir haben uns super verstanden! Vielen Dank für das besondere Erlebnis. Maike & Juan

Peppino è stato gentile e professionale, ci ha insegnato a stare sul sup e subito mostrato le bellezze della Scala dei Turchi. Abbiamo fatto un bel bagno e si è prestato a farci un completo book fotografico. Consigliatissimo per vedere da vicino là Scala nel rispetto della natura e facendo anche un po’ di sport!

Marco and Peppino were so friendly and accommodating. They took time to teach us how to paddle board before taking us out to the Turkish Stairs. We went to a private area near the stairs that could only be accessed by paddle board. Would highly recommend!

Un’esperienza unica: bellissimo vedere la Scala dei Turchi dalla prospettiva del mare. Con la nostra guida, Giuseppe, abbiamo scoperto vedute uniche di questo luogo. È stato faticoso ma riuscire a raggiungere la meta è una soddisfazione impagabile! Super consigliato, lo rifarei.
