There are many possibilities of organized excursions by boat in Sicily. They are not only for the boaters, but also for the tourists and visitors arrived on the island by air-plane, train or car. The excursions generally last one or more days, usually a weekend, and take place mainly in two ways, or moving inshore near the perimeter of the Island or to the smaller islands, especially the Aeolian and Egadi.
The tours are conducted on boats of different types depending on who provides the service. An innovative product in the island is the nautical B&B, which offers not only the excursion but also the possibility to sleep and have break-fast on board. Another very spread activity in the island, that could be compared with the boat trips, is the Pescaturismo. It lies in a boat tour during which the tourists can connect the boat trip with fishing, because they travel on a fishing boat.
