- Ancient relics and ruins
- Exciting blue water sailing
- Catch the famous Meltemi wind
Join a sociable group of fellow sailors to explore some of the world’s best cruising grounds on a flotilla holiday, all under the guidance of a Sunsail lead crew. You’ll sail a beautiful modern yacht to spectacular destinations by day and socialise with new friends in fantastic restaurants and bars by night.
Flotilla holidays are perfect for families and groups looking to make friends and share new experiences. Learn to sail or improve your skills, or even hire a skipper to take the pressure off. Sail the beautiful British Virgin Islands or discover ancient Greece, sample Croatia’s finest cuisine or discover Turkey’s Turquoise Coast on a flotilla sailing holiday.
Keep an eye out for our special flotillas, which we change every year. This year we’re looking forward to our Belize whale shark flotilla, exclusively adults flotilla, Croatian culinary and wine flotilla and our Amalfi coast culinary and wine flotilla.
If exploring the world of local wines and traditional culinary treats is your passion these flotillas are perfect for you. They combine some of the best sailing in the Mediterranean with tastings of local produce and the chance to meet the artisans who make it.
Dates departing: 14 May 2016 and 8 October 2016
On our special whale shark flotilla you'll arrive during the annual migration of these magnificent animals, sailing out to Belize's best dive sites to encounter the world's largest fish in its natural habitat.
A common misperception of the flotilla is that you have to sail like ‘ducks in a row’. But sailing on a flotilla offers much more independence than that.
Every day your lead crew will brief you on your destination, weather updates and any must-see spots along the way. They’ll help you cast off in the morning and then sail direct to the next destination so they can be there to help everyone moor up at night.
But after that, you’ll be left to explore the high seas yourself. Whether you’re looking for some exciting sailing or searching for the perfect beach, you can sail with confidence knowing that any assistance from your lead crew is only a phone or radio call away.
You’ll mostly stay in village quays and small harbours, and every night you can choose to explore on your own or meet up with the rest of your flotilla for dinner and stories.
The lead crew also organise social events like barbecues on the beach, punch parties and an end of week regatta so you can get to know your flotilla sailing partners.
We’ve created a flotilla package just for you, so all you have to worry about is choosing which of our incredible routes to go for and when.
Fully equipped cruising yacht for the duration of your holiday
The lead crew is there to support you. They'll help you cast off each day before heading to that evening's stopover to help you moor when you arrive. You can be as independent as you like with the confidence that the lead crew will be there to lend a helping hand when you need it. They can also recommend the best anchorages, harbours, restaurants and places to visit, ensuring that you make the most of your time on holiday.
Onboard your lead boat will be a skipper, host and a technician. On dedicated family flotillas in Greece we add an activities coordinator to help entertain the kids.
Your flotilla skipper is fully RYA qualified and is responsible for the flotilla. They will be on hand at the beginning and end of every day if you need assistance with mooring or casting off. They also hold daily chart briefings to help you make the most of your trip.
Your flotilla host will know the best beaches, restaurants and local attractions. They’ll find the perfect place for dinner every evening for you and your flotilla, so you can enjoy delicious local cuisine while sharing tales of the sea with your new friends.
Your technician will be on hand to make sure that each yacht in the flotilla is running smoothly. Should you have any technical questions, just let your technician know and they’ll be there to help.
Available on certain flotillas during the school holidays, our activities coordinator is on hand to give you some time to yourself without having to worry about what the kids are up to. They provide fun beach games and activities to keep kids from five to 17 years old entertained.
