There is no better way to visit some of world's coastal destinations than by boat and if you choose flotilla sailing holidays, you will have the freedom to explore as you desire and make some new friends along the way.
Here at Sunsail, we organise a range of flotilla sailing holidays in destinations all over the world, giving you the chance to take to the seas and enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family.
You are sure to have a wonderful time wherever you go, so get in touch with us today to start planning your exciting break.
What are flotilla sailing holidays?
A flotilla sailing holiday will see you set sail in your own yacht with a group – or flotilla – of other boats.
This gives you the perfect balance between the independence to do your own thing and a support network of like-minded people who can help you learn the ropes or just provide some good company.
With Sunsail, all of our flotilla holiday groups are headed up by a lead boat which is manned by our staff.
The team will include a skipper, a host(ess), an engineer and – on our trips designed especially for families – an activities co-ordinator.
They will be on hand to help with any problems you may have, as well as ensuring that you see all the sights and make the most of whichever region you are visiting.
Where can I go on flotilla holidays?
There are a host of destinations to choose from with our flotilla holidays but some of the most popular are Greece and Turkey.
If you choose to go flotilla sailing in Greece, you can set sail from Vounaki, giving you access to the Ionian Sea.
From your base here, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and ancient historic attractions that Greece has to offer, as well as visiting some of its islands, including Corfu and Paxos.
This location is ideal if you are new to sailing and will give you an opportunity to become comfortable at the helm, while seeing some spectacular sights. Alternatively, you may prefer to begin your sailing adventure in Milna.
Our flotilla holidays that start from here are more suited to those with a bit of experience. Taking you into the Aegean Sea, you can explore the beautiful Sporades Islands with their picture-perfect sand beaches and azure blue waters.
We also offer flotilla sailing holidays from a number of other Greek locations, including Kefalonia, Ithaca and Epidavros, so you are sure to be able to find an itinerary that suits both your abilities and your idea of the perfect relaxing break.
Our flotilla sailing in Turkey may also appeal to you if you want spectacular scenery, clear blue waters and beautiful beaches. You can take a journey along the Turkish coast from numerous ports, including Turgutreis, Gocek, Kas and Orhaniye.
Gocek is ideal for those who are new to sailing, while we offer family flotilla sailing holidays from destinations such as Turgutreis and Dorian, giving the children and adults alike a summer break they'll never forget.
Wherever you set sail from, you are sure to come across ancient ruins as well as some quiet, secluded coves which are ideal for an afternoon of relaxation. Turkish culture combines the Far East with the Mediterranean in a fascinating mix, which means that your flotilla sailing holidays here will be unlike any other as you experience the lifestyle in remote Turkish fishing towns.
And if you are struggling to pick between the two nations, then don't worry because we also offer trips that take in both Greece and Turkey, giving you the best of both worlds.
