I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.
John Mansfield, 1902
Unlike other boat tour services, the DonMar will only host private groups. This means that your boat tour of the Riviera del Conero will be for you and your family or friends alone, and you'll be able to choose your preferred destination, when to eat, which music to listen to, and so on.
Here's the detailed pricing scheme (note that children between 5 and 12 will pay a 30% discounted price):
Special events can also be organised: Do you and your friends want to stay out the whole day? You want to book the DonMar for a wedding proposal, or a hen party? Custom solutions can be arranged.
NB: the weather is unpredictable. I will closely monitor the weather forecast, and if the sea looks too rough to go out I will warn you as early as possible, and we will reschedule your boat tour with no reservation fees. Same goes for the wind. As the old adage goes: "we cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails" — many summer days it will be possible to sail, at least some part of the trip, but there will be some days when we'll only have to use the engine.
