Sailing holidays

Idyllic getaways with your loved ones

From island hopping and easy cruising in the Bahamas to sheltered harbours and dramatic scenery in Lefkas, a sailing holiday is an adventure for the whole family. Spot landmarks on the horizon, row the dinghy to a secluded bay, fish off the back of the boat or swim ashore for ice cream. You’ll discover a holiday that offers something for the whole family, whether you opt for the beach barbecues and children’s activities of a family-friendly flotilla or enjoy learning to sail together.

Our flotilla holidays are perfect for families and groups alike looking for fun on and off the water and a balance of support and autonomy. You’ll be guided by a lead crew including a skipper, host and technician who are on hand to make sure you have a fantastic holiday with us, from daily briefings and organising punch parties to ironing out any niggles along the way. Sailing together on flotilla gives everyone the chance to unwind as little or as much as they like and our flotilla routes are planned with short hops between stops with plenty of places to see in-between. Kids will always have something to do, see or explore on our flotillas, and on some of our special summer flotillas from Lefkas, we also have a dedicated activity coordinator who plans games and activities for the smallest of sailors.

We know there’s a lot to consider when sailing with your family. That’s why we’re available to organise everything you need to put your mind at ease, from child safety nets to lifejackets, selecting the right yacht to finding the right destination.
