How to Know if a Sailing Holiday is For You

If the idea of setting sail on the ocean for a week at a time can seem out of reach or simply too difficult to organise— sit back, enjoy, and let us do the legwork.

Let your mind unwind, soaking up incredible locations in private bays while recharging your batteries. Relax on deck with a good book while listening to the waves crash on the beach, or enjoy the sunset over an exquisite bottle of wine while experiencing some of the most stunning places in the world, all while travelling with those special people closest to you.

We specialise in creating comfortable sailing vacations for people who want to enjoy all the fruits life has to offer. A yacht holiday is certainly a unique way to travel, but trying something new often brings spectacular results.

Stress-Free Vacation

What’s special about a sailing holiday is that you’re able to simultaneously relax and soak up your location, in the fashion you’d like to do so, all while spending quality time with your loved ones. Planning an itinerary is a non-issue as everyone has the option to do as they please from the comfort of a luxury yacht.

There’s no unpacking or re-packing to stress about because your accommodation travels with you. There’s no forgetting any articles behind, or losing a member of your pack as the yacht brings you to each new location. You enjoy multiple locales from the comfort of one vessel.

Freedom to Roam

One of the many queries we get about our sailing holidays is concerns about having the freedom to do as you please— which is something our vacations have in spades. We take pride in the fact that our sailing holidays specifically avoid any rigid, tight, all-day itineraries. We realise everyone has different visions of an ideal holiday, and we want you to enjoy it in the way that suits you best.

If your partner would like to get out and explore the seaside cliffs or your kids prefer to snorkel in the water and swim after tropical fish, they can do so while you sip wine and read a book on the deck. You can each do your activity of choice— yet still, gather together for a beautiful meal at the middle and end of the day, sharing wonderful stories of your respective adventures and bonding through your shared experience in an unforgettable location.

First-Rate Activities

One of the luxuries of vacationing on a yacht is the amount of variety and choice on offer each day. You can choose to indulge in nature, man-made comfort, or a combination of both. Whatever suits your fancy. 

Enjoy daily ocean swims, and if you’re early enough, you can seize an entire crystal-clear bay all to yourself first thing in the morning— a guaranteed way to start your day on the right foot. Grab a paddleboard or a snorkel and explore the shores of a remote island. You can even learn to sail with our RYA qualified skippers. If you’re keen to get on dry land you can explore the beachside villages and take in a bit of the local culture.

As your yacht travels to a new location every day, you’ll get the opportunity to explore beautiful coves, beaches, and seaside towns that are vastly tucked away from the larger tourism crowd, leaving plenty of space for you and your loved ones to wander at your own pace, enjoying the tranquillity and wonder of these magical places.

Holiday with Good Company

What’s remarkable about our sailing holidays is that it attracts a certain type of person. Being within the same company and in close quarters for long periods of time isn’t quite as fun without frequent interactions with outsiders to freshen up the mood. Which is an aspect that makes the setting so special, the unique opportunity to meet other compatible travellers. 

You’ll have the chance to mingle with other kindred spirits who seek exciting new experiences just like you, and also happen to enjoy fabulous holidays and adventures in style and comfort. We’ve seen lifelong friendships spark between individuals who simply happened to book on the same yacht. Our holidays are perfect for a variety of groups, from couples to singles, to families or mature groups of friends, which keeps the atmosphere fresh and lively, yet ultimately relaxed.
