The largest urban center in southern Italy, Naples is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most ancient cities in Europe.

On our Naples yacht charter you can sail a truly historic coastline, from Sorrento and Positano to Ischia and Ponza – visiting nature reserves, sampling mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine and experiencing the living history of ancient civilizations.

Ashore in Naples, you’ve the chance to climb the mighty Vesuvius and tour its smoking, volcanic crater with an impressive view out over the bay. Or you can wander the preserved treasures at Pompeii or Herculaneum. 

Our Naples sailing charters give you a taste of the ancient world while offering modern comforts at well-appointed marinas. And, wherever you sail in Naples, you’ll meet people who are as warm and sunny as its climate, which is good all the way from May to October.

Things to do in Naples

Naples sailing island ancient architecture sailboat charter

Explore Procida’s Chiaiolella Beach

Procida is a classic Italian fishing island that has been loved since the days of the Romans and Greeks. Corricella Bay is where you will find a pretty waterfront with colored houses, the perfect place to spend a night at anchor. Don’t miss Procida’s sunny Chiaiolella Beach with its shallow waters during your Naples yacht rental.

Enjoy the thermal activity on Ischia

Sail to Forio on Ischia’s north coast and spend the day exploring the city and swimming in Poseidon Thermal swimming pool – it’s one of the best things to do in Naples. Head to Sant’Angelo on Ischia with its hot sandy beaches where you can see steam rising from volcanic activity. The medieval Aragonese Castle can be reached by a causeway and is also worth a stop.

Visit the Roman port on Ventotene

The Pontine Island of Ventotene is famous for its Roman port and stunning natural beauty. You can also sail to the museum island of Santo Stefano and visit its prison that closed more than 70 years ago.

Marvel at Capri’s rock formations

Capri is known for its glamorous jet-set crowd, but when it comes to things to do in Capri, the Faraglioni rock formations are more than impressive. The three towering stacks jut out of water and one has an arch that you can kayak through. Locals have names for the stacks and they are home to wildlife.

See the wonder of the Amalfi Coast

There is so much to see, including Praiano’s beaches with its Furore Fiord, complete with a bridge that spans across the rocks for amazing views. On an Amalfi Coast yacht charter, make sure you sail to Sorrento and watch the sunset from Terrazza dell’Infinito, or see the colorful stacked houses in the cliffs at Positano.

Spend two days on Ponza

Ponza’s many bays, rocks and caves make this island a fantastic itinerary stop. In particular, you will want to spend time at Chiaia di Luna bay and Frontone. You’ll need two days in Ponza to allow time to visit the uninhabited island of Palmarola.

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
