Corsica sailing charter

Corsica happy family sailing charter

Corsica is known as the ‘scented island’ because of the fragrant maquis flowers that grow in abundance. With over 300 miles of spectacular jagged coastline and a gentle Mediterranean climate, a Corsica yacht charter is the best way to enjoy this unique island’s sunny summer days, evergreen forests and wide variety of protected bird species. 

While sailing Corsica, be sure to visit Napoleon’s birthplace, now the Maison Bonaparte Museum. Or explore the wonders of the Scandola Nature Reserve, a Natural UNESCO World Heritage Site where endangered species thrive.

Red coral is recovering from overexploitation and growing in Corsica’s protected, shallow waters. You can also see whale and dolphin sanctuaries, or hike in the mountains as part of your Corsica yacht charter. 

Begin your charter from our bases in Propriano or the Corsican capital of Ajaccio. Both marinas give you the chance to explore the region’s 200 or so sand and pebble beaches, as well as tour the impressive rocky coastlines with mountainous backdrops.

You don’t need a sailing license for your Corsica yacht charter, but good sailing experience is recommended. Alternatively, you can hire a skipper.

Things to do in Corsica

Corsica family paddle surfing catamaran charter

Stargaze in the peaceful anchorage off Anse de Cacalu

Settle into the relaxing rhythm of your Corsica yacht charter with a walk on shore followed by a peaceful night stargazing.

Explore the strange rock formations of Anse de Roccapina

Locals love this well-protected anchorage for its white sand beach and the famous peaks known as the “Lion de Roccapina”.

Visit the medieval city of Bonifacio

Explore the southern tip of the island with its citadel that overlooks the Lavezzi islands and its UNESCO-listed cliffs. Or sail the Strait of Bonifacio, located at the intersection between Sardinia and Corsica. Its protected environment means this is one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean, so make sure you visit while you’re sailing Corsica.

Surround yourself with unique natural beauty

Anchor in tiny Cala di Conca, where you’ll be able to relax on a remote, uninhabited island with a soft, white sand beach.

See red with the Calanques de Piana

Corsica has a dramatic rocky coastline that shimmers pink to red, depending on the sunlight. These dramatic rock formations show off the best of the island and many of the shapes have earned nicknames over time.

Relax in Calvi on the northwest coast

The alleged birthplace of explorer Christopher Columbus offers city walls for strolling and a citadel with an amazing view. It also has a jazz festival in the summer if you want to soak up the local culture.

Head to the Agriate Desert

If white sand beaches are your ideal vacation choice, do not miss Saleccia, part of the Agriate Desert. With waters like those of the Caribbean, it’s one of our favorite things to do in Corsica.

Sail the Lavezzi Archipelago

Discover Cavello, Lavezzu and the islets of Piana, Ratina, plus many more, in this group of eight islands that form part of a protected reserve.

Excellent. Very professional and great service!


Antigua Bareboat

Just what we needed coming out of a year of lockdown, to see new places and connect with nature. Highly recommended for your next sailing adventure!


St. Martin Bareboat

Excellent cruise and very good stay. Skipper attentive, very pleasant and very professional.


Guadeloupe Skippered

Just returned from another fantastic sailing week at your base in Pula and I would like to thank everyone involved for making this possible on such short notice and without any problems.


Croatia Bareboat

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”


Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.


Greece Skippered

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC


Tahiti Crewed Premium

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.


British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.


Mexico Crewed Premium

All staff were fantastic and made our trip very memorable. Incredibly friendly and welcoming, the food was amazing. The service throughout the trip was always first class!


Thailand Cabin

Absolutely recommended. Perfect service and set up. Will charter again and will recommend Dream Yacht Charter anytime.

I just returned from 3 weeks of amazing sailing with my family on one of your catamarans in Sardinia. I would like to express my thanks to our skipper Simone and Daniela, our hostess.


Sardinia Bareboat

For a first cruise as a skipper, the Mediterranean is great. The Dream Yacht Charter service is too!


France Bareboat

We had an incredible trip and actually got engaged on the first night of our sail! We will certainly be back one day. Thank you for getting us ready for our charter. We were definitely beginners but he gave us a very thorough but very easy to follow training and it gave us a lot of confidence.



The on board experience was way beyond our expectations. Isabelle provided exceptional three course meals. We could not believe her creativity and delicious meals. Thomas was an excellent skipper. He was always on the lookout for our needs. Thanks guys!” Spira, New Caledonia bareboat with crew charter


New Caledonia Bareboat

Yet again another fantastic sail with another great crew. Thanks again to a great captain and cook. Was totally fantastic.
