Kaptan Metin Bey ve miçomuz Hüseyin ile çok keyifli bir tatil geçirdik. Kaptanımız aynı zamanda aşçı idi. Yemekler çok lezzetliydi. Köpeğimizle beraber teknede kaldık. Köpekle beraber seyir yapmak için teknedeki alan çok müsaitti. Kaptanımız ve miçomuz bizi ve köpeğimizi rahat ettirmek ve her türlü ihtiyacımızı karşılamak için çok yardımcı oldular.

Her şey yolunda ve keyifliydi. Tekneye gitmeden önce tekne sahibi ile görüşerek menümüzü oluşturduk. Menü üzerinden ekip bizim adımıza alışveriş yaparak tekneyi hazırladılar. Hava şartları biraz kötüydü ama buna rağmen kaptan elinden gelenin en iyisini yaparak bizi en keyifli ve güzel koylara götürerek gezdirdi. Yemekler lezzetli ve istediğimiz gibiydi.

Kaptan çok iyi ve çokta iyi aşçılığı var. Rotayı beraber belirledik. Kaç koy gezileceği önceden belliydi ama yine bizleri memnun edebilmek adına taleplerimizi karşıladı. Herkese öneririm, yine tekne tatili düşündüğüm zaman bu tekne ile tuta çıkmak isterim.

Booking a Sailing Holiday

Globe trotters, explorers of new horizons, and water enthusiasts, lend your ears. Picture yourself aboard an exclusive yacht, dancing gently on the rhythm of waves, untouched by mundane worries. This perfect imagery can turn into reality with a sailing holiday. Sailing holidays are not merely vacations; they encapsulate a unique blend of adventure, tranquility, and luxury. They offer opportunities to explore hidden coastal gems, dine under the stars right in the heart of the ocean, and soak in the panoramic beauty of sunrise and sunsets. Does a more idyllic escape exist? Viravira.co offers thousands of options to rent yachts hourly, daily, or weekly, incorporating unique features such as overnight accommodation, privately owned yachts, bareboats, and even all-inclusive sailing holiday packages.

What are the popular destinations and routes for sailing holiday?

What defines a great sailing holiday is a spectacular location. Mediterranean destinations such as Greece, Italy, and Croatia have always had a special place in the heart of sailors. They offer clear blue seas, magnificent islands, rich history and culture, and mouthwatering cuisine. The Ionian Islands, the Amalfi Coast, and the Dalmatian Coast are popular routes in these countries respectively. If you prefer something outside the ordinary, the hidden beaches of Seychelles, the luxurious stretches of the French Riviera, or the culturally rich coasts of Turkey might tickle your fancy. For the brave hearts, the chilly but splendid adventures of Arctic Norway or the enchanting wildlife exploration opportunities in Galapagos Islands await. Whether you are a seasoned sailor or a novice, there are routes and destinations to suit your needs. All you need is the spirit of adventure and a yearning heart. Viravira.co can guide you on where to start your sailing holiday 'near me'.

What is the best time to book a sailing holiday?

The climate and the crowd dictate the best time to book a sailing holiday. Summers are generally a great time for Mediterranean destinations as you have longer daylight, a chance to swim in warm waters and enjoy vibrant nightlife. However, it is also when these places are most crowded. Winters, on the contrary, offer solitude and cheaper packages but shorter days and colder water make swimming less attractive. Cyclone prone areas such as South Pacific and Caribbean should be visited only during cyclone off-seasons. For polar sailing holidays, summer months are preferable when temperatures are less extreme. Viravira.co can advise on your yacht vacation plans depending on your chosen destination, considering factors such as weather and crowd.

Should I rent a holiday yacht with or without a skipper?

While a 'bareboat' sailing holiday puts you in complete control, a skippered yacht vacation saves you the worry of navigation. If you have the necessary sailing skills and a captain's license, a bareboat sailing could be a great way to bond with your crew. A skippered charter, on the other hand, lets you relax and enjoy while a professional takes care of navigation, mooring, and often local tips. Decide based on your skill and desired holiday experience. Viravira.co can help you find both skippered and bareboat rental models.

Should I rent a holiday yacht with or without a crew?

If luxury and comfort define your sailing holiday, a crewed charter may be perfect for you. Crewed yachts not only come with a captain but also trained professionals for cooking, cleaning, and often water sports instruction. They take personalization to another level, with meals and services catered to your preference. Of course, it comes with an additional cost. On the other hand, if you prefer a more intimate trip with just your family and friends, a bareboat or only skippered yacht could be the answer. Viravira.co offers a wide range of crewed and non-crewed yachts for you to choose from.

What license do I need to charter a holiday yacht?

To charter a yacht without a skipper, you need a valid sailing license or a proof of sufficient sailing experience in some countries. The type of license varies from country to country, with ICC (International Certificate of Competence) and RYA Day Skipper License being more universally accepted. It is always advised to check the licensing requirements with the yacht rental company or local maritime authorities. Note that large or luxury boats may require a higher level of qualification. Check with Viravira.co for exact licensing requirements for your chosen destination and yacht.

What to pack for a sailing holiday?

Packing for a sailing holiday largely depends on the destination and type of charter. Light clothes, swimsuits, a warmer layer for cooler nights, and windproof jackets should cover your clothing needs. For a bearboat or skippered charter, consider packing some basic provisions. Shoes should be flat soled and non-marking. Don't forget personal items like medicines, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Most yachts come equipped with safety gear but having a personal first-aid kit wouldn't hurt. For entertainment, books, music or board games could be great companions. With crewed or luxury yachts, however, you can afford to pack light as most necessities and luxuries will be taken care of. Talk to the experts at Viravira.co for more tailored packing tips.
