Many sailing charters go far beyond the more commonly available sailing trips that have you spend the entire time on the water.
Although these are enjoyable in their own way, especially if you merely want to enjoy a relaxing ocean cruise on a sailing vessel, sailing charters typically offer a much more varied, well-rounded and ultimately more rewarding experience. And the best part about it is, they do not even have to cost much more than your typical sailing trip.
If you have a lot of experience piloting a sailing vessel then by all means, sign up for one of the many available sailing charters that allow you to take the helm. This is an ideal way to chart your destiny during your vacation so to speak, and if you are fully qualified for the task, then you already know that nothing can come close to the feeling of being in total control of your journey.
If you want to take things a bit easier on the other hand, or if you have no experience at all behind the wheel, there are certainly many crewed sailing charters that you can avail of. These will come with a thoroughly qualified crew on board so you do not even have to lift a finger once you leave port until you anchor back in. This is the ideal arrangement if you want to be free to enjoy every last bit of your vacation. And with all that is in store for you on a sailing charter, you can hardly be blamed for wanting it so!
Many sailing charters will start out the day with a short sail in the morning, reaching the day’s destination by noon when you can have lunch either inland or on the boat. The rest of the day will then typically be spent in swimming, snorkeling, lazing around the beaches or exploring the local culture. Evenings will be spent having dinner in the balmy breezes and you wake up the next day only to do it all over again! Truly an experience that is as close to paradise as you can get on earth, and something that sailing charters can make a reality!
