Top 6 Sailing Destinations for Your Next Vacation

Cruise to Paradise on a Boat Charter

It’s time to make your dream vacation come true. Where would you like to go this year?

When making a final decision, it’s best to think about what you want to experience. Really, there’s no wrong answer. Relax on the beach with a cocktail in hand or go water skiing in an exotic area. Visit with the locals or open water sailing? Superb cuisine or enticing nightlife? It’s all waiting for you right now.

Diving, kayaking, exploring. So much to do in so little time. Not to worry, the following list will help you decide which location what’s best for you – try one or try them all! Here are our favorite boat charter locations this summer.


Over 1,400 islands and more than 300 days of sunshine every year – that’s what you can expect when you put yourself in touch with the legendary Greek Islands. You and your family can learn the rich history and mythology by touring the ancient ruins and rocky coastlines. See the stunning scenery of the Mediterranean with your boat charter. Sail the Aegean and Ionian seas and visit the most popular islands, such as Santorini, Mykonos, Amorgos, Sifnos, and Ithaca. You can even try out the delicious and unique Greek cuisine while sailing along the sandy coasts! It is absolutely worth having on your list to take out a boat charter here.


This is definitely the best place to visit for underwater adventure enthusiasts. Deep dive off your boat charter and into the rich seas and beautiful coral gardens of the Australian coast. Go snorkeling and scuba diving to see the spectacular marine life you can’t find anywhere else – colorful fish, turtles, whales, dolphins, manatees, and more. Sail the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, the world’s largest marine protected area, made up of almost 2,900 individual reefs.

Take the whole family on a tropical guided tour of the water. There are so many to choose from whether you’re underwater pros or you’ve just gotten started. Afterwards, take a rest on the golden beaches and enjoy the stunning views. Don’t forget your underwater camera!

The British Virgin Islands:

Ideal for sailors with every level of experience, the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) are a very popular location due to its luxury resorts and year-round warm temperatures. They claim some of the best sailing conditions, too. Even beginner boaters will have the easiest time navigating along the coastlines with their charters. With more than 60 islands and hundreds of anchorages, it’s one of the best ways to make the most out of Caribbean sailing. Discover rarely-visited spots or see some of the more beloved areas. Just a few of the more well-known islands are Anegada, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, and Jost Van Dyke. They’re perfect for immersing in the local culture and finding new dining spots. Have fun island hopping in the British Virgin Islands!


A newer, trendier favorite among frequent sailors, Croatia has more than 1,185 islands and a range of sites to explore just off the shore. Many of the beaches are peaceful with some of the best views you’ve ever seen. Choose to begin your journey in any of the Adriatic islands and use your boat charter to visit the closer fishing villages. Enjoy the warm weather with friendly locals and enjoy the laid-back way of life. Finally, for those who like to enjoy nature walks and outdoor photography, Croatia has eight gorgeous national parks to see. Charter a sailboat, motor yacht, or catamaran from the Dalmatian coastline for your next vacation in Croatia.

The French Riviera:

Visit the array of fine beaches and coastlines and enjoy a gourmet meal on a romantic beach in the South of France. Sailing the French Riviera in your own boat charter is the best way to know this Mediterranean coastline. But where to start? Some of the more well-known destinations include St. Tropez, Cannes, and Monaco to see the more “glamorous” side of the French Riviera. For a more peaceful charter experience and more picturesque sceneries, try visiting the Lernis Islands, the Porquerolles, or the Esterel Cliffs. Here you can choose your own itinerary! Come see the great nightlife, designer shops, and excellent dining options available to you there.
