Want to take a cruise? Take a sailboat adventure instead

05th Jun 2019

Take a sailing vacation where you will make new friends, discover new places, indulge in locally-sourced meals while feeling catered to without the pressure of knowing how to sail yourself.   

A luxury sailing vacation doesn’t need to be restricted to travelers with sailing experience or those willing to dish out the cost of an entire yacht. A by the cabin charter offers the services of a crew: prepared meals, planned itinerary and land and sea-based activities, an alternative to the impersonal cruise ship experience. Your yacht accommodates up to 12 people who share the same adventurous spirit as you.

You can charter cabins on yachts all over the world. Our destinations include the Caribbean, Bahamas, Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, Asia and the Pacific.

Make new friends

By choosing a by the cabin charter for your island hopping adventure, you can let go of the stress of planning and just relax. When you rent a cabin instead of a whole yacht, you will wake up in a premium, private stateroom with your own bathroom, and join new friends in the shared common spaces and deck for a day of adventure planned by your professional crew.

Join your new friends on an ecotour of Bird Island in the Seychelles with a resident conservationist, where giant turtles populate the creamy beaches. Take a dip in the famous Na Muang Waterfalls on Samui, best enjoyed on an island hopping adventure around Thailand during the rainy season (between May and October). Marvel at the purple rocks above the falls and sip pink rosé with your fellow adventurers to top off your day.

Go exploring with your yacht mates and discover the Scandola Nature Reserve in Corsica, located on a volcano that collapsed into the sea, covering around 4 miles of protected land and sea in the Balearic Islands. Enjoy some shopping with your boating companions in Marché de Pape’ete on Tahiti. Treat yourself to the traditional Tahitian food and local vanilla bean ice cream before returning to your boat.
