Answers to our customers' most frequently asked questions


What should I pack?

For sailing, your luggage should be similar to what you pack when you go to sea: swimwear and casual clothes for evenings when docking in ports. Most of the time, you won’t wear half of your clothes because you’ll spend 80% of your time in a bathing suit. For early May and late September we recommend slightly thicker, waterproof, windproof clothing. Footwear: heeled shoes are not recommended under any circumstances, try swapping them for light footwear – sandals, water shoes or flip flops.

Do I need bed linen or towels?

Each boat, regardless of size, is equipped with 1-2 towels/towels and bed linen is also included. But we recommend you bring your own beach towels, as we’ll be docking in bays where we’ll be spending our free time on deserted beaches.

Where do we eat?

The boats have fully equipped kitchen areas with storage space for supplies and a cool box for food and drinks. We encourage you to prepare quick and easy meals on board and try the local cuisine at the tavernas. On nights when we anchor in deserted bays, you’ll need to show off your culinary talents to your crew. We can make reservations at our favourite local restaurants.

Who does the shopping and where?

Crew members, i.e. you and those with you on the boat, can shop in supermarkets in the marinas from which you depart. Discuss, agree, make a list and go shopping. You can replenish every 2-3 days with perishable foods or foods worth enjoying fresh such as bread, vegetables, fruit, milk, yoghurt or eggs, as these are found in all marinas where we dock and storage space on board is limited.

Will I get seasick?

There are also people who can sometimes experience this kind of slightly unpleasant sensation which is actually caused by our inner ear, the main centre of balance. Fortunately, there are plenty of solutions for this, so you don’t have to worry (there are dedicated medications that can be taken before departure and little sea tricks that work every time). Our skippers will be on hand to anticipate and resolve any unpleasant situations.

Will we sail far out to sea?

Will we sail far out to sea? Answer: NO

We will enjoy the beauties of nature as we sail along the coast stopping at beaches, spectacular bays or cross to a new island.

The route will be designed so that the daily sailing time is short, 1-3 hours.

life on the boat

Where do I sleep?

You’ll sleep on the boat. The cabins are equipped with either double or single beds (bunk beds) and all have storage space. One of the greatest pleasures of a sailing enthusiast is sleeping on the boat. There’s nothing more soothing than the sound of the sea at night!

Are there showers/toilets on the boat?

Each boat has one or more toilets, depending on size. Although small, the bathrooms offer all the necessary comforts, including running water, hot water. You can also use the outdoor shower to rinse off the salt water. The ports also have showers available for a fee. The tanks on the boat provide a limited amount of water and can be refilled in the harbours for a small fee, so use the water resources on the boat sparingly!

Is there electricity on the boat?

Yes. When anchored in the harbour, the boat is connected to the shore and has 230V power. When sailing, the power is 12V and is similar to a car plug or USB ports on newer boats and can be used for charging phones and, of course, keeping the fridge running. Depending on the equipment, some boats have electric generators.

Where do we sleep at night?

We always land in a new place, be it a harbour or a spectacular bay, the sea will be calm and at night the movement generated by the sea waves will not cause discomfort.

What will a typical day on the boat be like?

First of all, you should know that most of your time will be spent on yachts, beaches and spectacular bays.

In the morning, whether you wake up to watch the sunrise, take a dip in the sea, enjoy a good coffee or whatever your morning routine is, you can do anything on the boat, even sleep until noon.

Navigation. Relax on deck or take the helm and our skippers will be by your side to teach you some sailing techniques. We will sail daily for several hours to reach our next destination.

Activities, especially on hot summer days, a swim is welcome, so we’ll take breaks from sailing to cool off at sea. You can do various activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving or go boating or stand up paddle boarding.

We are arriving todiscover a new location every day. It’s the perfect opportunity to try the local cuisine and discover the islands and their stories.

In the evening, after arriving in the harbour, or mooring in a spectacular bay, you can end the day admiring the sunset over a cold glass of your favourite drink or go to a taverna in the old villages, lost in time.

The next day we start again for a week, sunset after sunset, sunrise after sunrise!

Catamaran or sailboat, what do I choose?


Comfort is essential and the size of the catamaran gives you more space both in the cabins and on deck. These yachts have spacious en-suite cabins and offer the highest standard in technology, equipment and facilities. It offers generous outdoor areas for relaxing and sunbathing and is ideal for spending your holiday with family or friends.


Smaller and more intimate, a monohull is an option for everyone’s budget. Ideal for sailing lovers and enthusiasts. You have the privilege to choose which yacht you want to spend your holiday on. Whether it’s a monohull or a catamaran, you’re sure to have an unforgettable time.

Booking and payment

Do boat prices differ?

There are many variables and options when it comes to chartering a yacht and prices depend a lot on what is important to you. Leaving aside the difference in price due to the type and size of a boat, you should also take into account factors such as the age of the boat, whether it is a sailboat or a motor only boat, the period it is rented (peak season months cost more) and the boat’s equipment. Another very important factor is the location of where the boat is chartered from.

How do I make a reservation?

Choose the destination and type of yacht you are interested in and fill in the booking form. If you come with your group of friends, you can make the reservation on behalf of everyone. If you manage to decide early, you can take advantage of our discounts. If you need a personalised offer tailored to your needs you can email us or call us.

When do I have to pay?

Depending on the availability of your choice of destination, type of boat and number of people, a Sail OnSea representative will contact you within 24 hours to determine the details (availability, payment amount, deadline for down payment and payment plan that applies to you). The advance is payable within 48 hours of receipt of the invoice and contract. If payment is not made within 48 hours, the reservation will be automatically cancelled. The rest of the money will usually be paid 30 days before departure.

What is included in the price?

All information on what is and what is not included in the price can be found in the description of each event.


How much does a skipper or hostess cost?

A skipper costs between 140 and 190 euro/day, which is automatically included on the invoice. A host costs between 120 and 170 euro/day and is optional.

When will the skipper/hostess be assigned for our holiday?

The skipper and/or host are usually assigned about 2-4 weeks before your departure. Once they are allocated, we will send you their contact details so you can get in touch.

How can I request a specific skipper/hostess?

At the time of booking you can request a specific skipper or host and if they are available they can be assigned to you.

Where will the skipper sleep?

In the case of catamarans he will use one of the crew cabins and in the case of sailboats he will use the sofa in the living area.
