Family Sailing Holidays

Our diverse fleet offer the perfect family sailing holiday from island-hopping in Greece to exploring the Hebrides. So gather up the kids and climb aboard for an all-inclusive family sailing adventure.

For those who are a little jaded by the usual holiday options with the kids perhaps it’s time to consider a skippered family sailing holiday. No experience is needed to climb aboard and our wide range of vessels means that we can cater for all ages and abilities – including grandparents! With a varied selection of boats to choose from, each skippered charter comes with a full professional crew ready to teach you the ropes or simply sail you around while you sit back, enjoy some quality family-time together whilst soaking up the fabulous views.

Sunshine Sailing

Sun-seekers will adore sailing around the Saronic Islands or the Cyclades in Greece on board modern yacht Zorba. For those looking to explore in a touch more luxury, try sister catamaran Zorba Cat available for both berth or private charter. With easy access from the UK and Europe, you can meet the boat after a short flight to Athens. Skipper’s Aga and Greg have been sailing here for years, and they love taking guests off the beaten track, show-casing ancient UNESCO sites, deserted beaches and mouth-wateringly tempting tavernas. It’s what summer holidays are made for!

A short hop away, our luxury classic yacht Rhea offers designated family sailing holidays around Corfu with discounted ticket prices for under 12’s. Her sister yacht Kairos is also a great choice for a larger family yacht charter island hopping the coasts of Croatia ideal for those seeking a multi-generational break away. Both yachts offer ultimate style and luxury with private ensuite cabins, on board water-sport activities and 5* cabin service, what more could you ask for?

For a truly once in a lifetime experience, our traditional pinisi boats Ombak Putih and Katharina are sure to delight with their Indonesian sailing holidays. Whilst all their voyages are suitable for 3+ years, their dedicated family sailing holidays in Indonesia are where they truly stand out. With a tailored itinerary curated for young minds, you’ll have the chance to swim with gentle whale sharks and sea turtles, snorkel in the bubbles from volcanic vents and explore vibrantly bright coral reefs. On these voyages no two days are the same, but each promises remote natural treasures, as well as learning opportunities aplenty.

Our Scandinavian summer holidays explore an area of Denmark that is truly a hidden gem – the South Funen archipelago. Embracing the power of the Baltic winds, these family holidays in Scandinavia onboard tall ship Aron emphasise ecological consciousness, sustainability, and local experiences. While you indulge in delicious home-cooked meals using locally sourced produce, you can also relish the tranquility of the sea, the sound of wind-filled sails, and the gentle creaking of the wooden ship. Sailed by a live aboard family, children of all ages are welcomed onboard Aron to discover this little know archipelago of Denmark.

Family Sailing Staycation

For a skippered family sailing holiday a little closer to home, consider a sailing holiday in Scotland. Many of our fleet sail off the West Scottish coast and around the Hebrides during the summer months, wowing guests with the breath-taking scenery and incredible wildlife watching. Children will love the powder soft white sandy beaches and enjoy some family swimming in some of the clearest waters in the world.  Anyone who is curious has the opportunity to get hands-on with the sailing aspect including taking the helm and learning navigational skills, however it is not a requirement.

Another incredible destination close to home is a family holiday in iconic Devon and Cornwall which has long-lured tourists from around the globe. Discover hidden coves, quaint harbours and deep secluded estuaries – perfect for swimming or anchoring up for the evening.
