Sailing holiday options

Sail the world with us

Clear waters, warm winds and the thrill of adventure at sea. Whether you’re a newbie looking to find your sea legs, or an old hand who already knows the ropes, we offer sailing holidays for sailors of all ability and experience levels. Go your own way and relish ultimate freedom on a bareboat charter. Or blend superb sailing with lively socials and the support of a lead crew on a Sunsail flotilla. Looking to take things easy? Add a professional skipper and let them tackle the hard work as you enjoy the cobalt seas and chase endless horizons.

Creating the world’s finest charters doesn’t happen overnight. It comes from years of experience. Years spent listening to and acting on what sailors want from a yachting holiday. And we keep refining Sunsail Holidays to make them even better. That way they don’t just live up to your expectations, but go beyond your wildest dreams.
