What to Expect on a Sailing Adventure

  • A senior couple enjoying their private yacht rental charter together

    A VIP experience

    Feel like a million bucks (literally!) sailing through the Mediterranean onboard your very own yacht. Stop at the hidden gems of the world that are only accessible by boat. Imagine relaxing on the deck at a picturesque island cove, sailing to a private beach with white sands, and plunging into warm ocean waves without another soul in sight. Pure bliss!

  • The famed giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador

    All-in-one adventure

    Struggling to choose between a cultural experience and an island-hopping getaway? On a sailing tour, you don't have to choose. Good sailing itineraries master the perfect balance of cultural experiences, delicious delicacies, fun activities and even wildlife encounters, like our gentle giants over on the Galápagos Islands.

  • View of a traditional sailing boat cruising around the many inlets and islands of Indonesia

    New day, new destination

    The world truly is your oyster on a sailing holiday! Discover some of the most unspoilt destinations, from Australia's Great Barrier Reef to Africa's Seychelles archipelago. With literally tens of thousands of islands surrounded by remote golden shores, there are very few reasons why you shouldn't go on a sailing adventure.

  • A couple enjoying a romantic moment on the beach in the Maldives

    Just escape.

    Do you dream of just getting away, but are not really sure of where to? A sailing holiday serves as the ideal escape from everyday life with the blue skies and refreshing waters crafting a peaceful home-away-from-home. Let the calm sway, lapping waves and sand between your toes serenade you to create that irresistible island paradise you've always dreamt of.

Sailing tours of the Croatian Islands

Sail the Croatian Islands with us!

Come along with us to the glimmering Adriatic Coast as we wander through the ancient streets of Dubrovnik, sample local wine in Korčula, and more! With its stunning natural setting, breezy islands, and glorious seascapes, Croatia sets the stage for a dreamy Adriatic escape of epic proportions.

Croatia is the type of place where you can sunbathe on striking beaches, eat at the finest of restaurants, or party until the sun comes up (or all of the above!). Covering a mix of fan favourites and lesser-explored locales - from Split to Makarska, Mljet and Hvar - this sailing trip makes for an Adriatic adventure like no other. If you want to see the best of Croatia (while soaking up as much sun as possible along the way) a sailing trip is the way to go!

Ways to Sail

  • Luxury yacht tours in the Mediterranean

    Yacht

    Modern, comfortable, and equipped with a range of top-notch amenities - including fully-equipped cabins and sun decks - yachts offer an excellent sailing experience no matter your destination. If you’re booking a sailing trip in the Mediterranean, it’s likely you’ll be sailing on a yacht.

  • Traditional gulet cruise in Turkey and Croatia

    Gulet

    Arr me hearties! Bring your pirate fantasies to life onboard this more traditional vessel. Originating in Turkey, gulet boats are wooden sailing boats with two or three masts. Although other countries such as Italy and Croatia use gulets, you’ll find them most commonly on sailing trips in Turkey.

  • Catamaran tours of the Galapagos Islands

    Catamaran

    Designed with ample space, elegant interiors, and high stability, catamarans ensure a safe and comfortable sailing experience. These types of vessels are typical for sailing trips in Asia, and their small size makes them ideal for hopping around islands in the Caribbean and the Galápagos.

Your Sailing Questions, Answered

  • Do I need to know how to sail?

    On most of our Sailing adventures, you'll have a skipper at the helm or at least some crew members to show you the ropes, so no sailing experience is required. Some private sailing trips allow you to be the captain as you'll have the entire boat to yourself, so be sure to double-check with your operator if that's something you'd like to do.
  • Am I required to help out on the boat?

    Sailing adventure operators are fully equipped with a highly skilled crew, so there’s no need to help out on the boat - unless you want to fine-tune your sailing skills, of course!
  • What are the cabins like?

    This depends on the type of vessel you’ll be on, but it’s likely that your cabin will be small. Typically, couples get their own room, while solo travellers will have to share a cabin or pay a single supplement for their own room. Most cabins are equipped with ensuite bathrooms, but some vessels may have shared facilities.
  • How much time is spent off the boat?

    Sailing adventures have mastered the balance of on and off-shore experiences. A typical day might look like waking up on board, heading for a morning swim, then making port at a historic town where you'll savour local delicacies and enjoy free time before returning back to your boat for the night. Of course, every sailing itinerary is different but most include excursions to various ports, along with a range of land-based activities.
  • Can I combine Adventure Styles?

    Yes absolutely! An adventure is what you make of it, so why not add on wine-tasting in France, a historical tour to multicultural Turkey, or a wild safari ride in Kenya.
