GETTING THERE

 

Can you arrange transit from the airport or city center to the marina?

Yes of course we can. Please let us know in advance and we can arrange a private car/van for large groups or taxi for smaller groups.

All yachts return to base marina late Saturday afternoon with checkout at 9am Sunday. You may do checkout on Saturday evening if that suits you. 

 

BOOKING & PAYMENT

 

I have a group of friends, what is the minimum numbers required to rent a whole yacht to ourselves?

You can find some viable options from 4 Couples to 6 couples. For groups, earlier the booking the better as yachts go quick especially for peak season.

 

Yacht vs. Cabin?

If you have a large group, say 4 couples plus that would be ideal to fill your own yacht. The price per person can be better when booking a full boat together and you can be sure to know everyone beforehand. Also you can get luxury yachts from tailor made offers we send you.

Cabins bookings are a great way to make new friends. You will be grouped with like-minded people. Also is easier, you don’t need to chase and organise all your friends, just book your cabin and they can book to join you when they are ready. If your friends book their cabins later we will always endeavour to group you in the same yacht. Just make us aware of it at the time of the booking.

No, we dont have this option

ON THE YACHT

 

Is this for me? I’ve never been on a sailing holiday before?

Very few of our guests have been on similar trips before joining us. Nearly all of them have said it is one of the best holidays they have ever had. Sailing on a yacht is an amazing experience, both active and relaxing with a great mix of lounging in the sun surrounded by stunning scenery and great fun at night. Living on a boat for a week is a thrill and you’ll get used to the accommodation fair quickly.

From 5 > 6 couples + Captain + Crew, but mostly 6 couples per yacht

In cabin can be 2 people sometimes there are bunk beds on yachts but mostly double bed

 

What are the cabins like?

How much time do we spend on the yacht each day?

The islands are relatively close together, so sailing between destinations can be relatively quick. Most days will involve between 2 to 4 hours of sailing. Navigation is easy since all of the islands are within sight of each other. There is no sailing in open ocean where you can’t see land.

 

Is it safe on the yacht?

Safety is our number one priority. Our Captain and Crew are very experienced. As long as you listen to your captain you will be in good hands

 

I am worried about getting seasick?

Sea sickness can be managed. Skippers carry seasick prevention tablets. Just let the skipper know and he/she will look after you. Please note that avoiding acidic foods and drinks and not missing sleep can help prevent seasickness. Also if you know you are prone to seasickness please check out this site: http://www.seasickness.co.uk/.

 

I have never been on a yacht before, is this for me?

It does not matter if you have never been on a boat before. Experience is not necessary. That is what the Captains and Crew are for. You just have to relax and enjoy yourself.

 

What are our obligations regarding Captain ?

Your Captain will inform you about all about safety, so listen to them while on the boat. Make sure you treat your captain well and help out whenever you are needed! Please treat captain and crew as a friend on the boat on vacation with you and your friends.

 

Will my electrical appliances work on the yacht, say hair dryer?

Yes we do have a generator which we run when anchored in some bays, running the gecerator in the Marinas or where by the other yachts is impossible.

Docking into the Marina we have 12 and 220 from the shore harbor electricity

 

Will I have internet access?
