If you're travelling solo then one of our mostly singles trips could be perfect for you. There's nothing like the fun, dynamic environment of a sailboat to make new and close friends.
Our shareboat adventures are also an excellent way for singles, couples, travelling friends, etc to join a group of like-minded adventurers and share the experience, without having to book a whole boat.
If you can get enough friends together to fill a boat (or more) you get great rates - and a private charter might be the best option for you.
For those who would like a completely laid-back and relaxed time on board, add a first mate/cook to the recipe with one of our Galley Service charters.
"Everyone must do this at least once in his/her lifetime. Amazing crew, relaxing experience. ... the first two days on the boat gave me the peace and help me to get rid of all the stress and tension..."Matteo G
Finding yourself with a group of compatible crewmates is important enough if you're traveling with a partner - even more so if travelling solo!
One of our biggest advantages in being a small outfit is that we're usually able to make enough personal contact with each of our clients to take a good shot at matching them with a crew they'll find compatible. We're not infallible at this, but our success rate IS pretty darn high!
Our "mostly singles" trips tend to attract active, adventurous and sociable characters. The group dynamics are usually very strong - when travelling solo, people tend to make more effort to get to know one another. With the team-spirit that boat life creates, the laid-back, hedonistic atmosphere of the islands, people get to know each other real fast - many folks go home with close friendships that have lasted years since.
If you're travelling with a partner, but don't necessarily want to be with all couples ('cos, well, they can be awfully 'couple-y'!) - one of our "mostly singles" trips might just fit you as well; the emphasis being on the get-to-know-new-people, fun group spirit. Just let us know what your preferences are, and we'll do our matchmaking best to put you with the 'right' group.
Do you like the idea of getting involved.... a chance to sail the boat yourself... or learn how ! An adventure where you're not just a passenger to be sailed from A to B on a set schedule, but actively involved in a dynamic and FUN team spirit? Then you're on the right page here!
No matter how many years experience one has, there's no substitute for local knowledge. Where are the safe hidey-holes if the wind changes direction in the night? Which taverna has the best food? Uh-oh.... the dock is full; but no worries, our local buddies will make space for us! Less responsibility and more relaxation - and you can still sail the boat yourself just as much as you like!
From "I'll just take a turn at the helm occasionally".... to "I want to be able to sail this ship all by myself by the end of the week!" - we get the full range, and often all within one group ! :)
Any of the above are fine; we love it when people are keen to learn, or improve skills; if you're keener on sunbathing sometimes, that's fine too!
No, we're not really entering the white-shirted league here! Our easy-going and friendly SeaScape attitude will always stay the same. We still think you're here to have FUN, not to be in some formal uptight environment, where you have to "dress for dinner", a la cruise ship mentality!
But, for groups who really don't want to do anything in the galley, we'll take care of everything - cleaning, meal preparations, washing-up, etc.
We'll still need your help handling the boat - like pulling up the sails, steering, or throwing a line ashore ('coz it's a sailing trip, and that's the fun stuff, right?!), but for private groups who don't want to worry about cooking and cleaning up, our Galley Service option might be just the ticket.
The cost of a first mate/cook is 140 euro per day. Contact us for more details if you think Galley Service is right for your group.
