Family Adventure Sailing Holidays

Incredible family adventure sailing holidays

From wonderful sailing between Caribbean islands, to high adventure on the west coast of Norway, a sailing holiday can be a huge adventure for the whole family – or even two families. With our 9 berth expedition yachts, there’s room for everyone. Two friendly, expert instructors will be helping everyone learn to sail, and every day you’ll sail to a new location where you can drop anchor, head ashore and explore, play with the kayak or take an exciting RIB ride. A real highlight can be having an impromptu beach BBQ with a freshly caught fish. It’s an incredible bonding experience for everyone and if you want your children to know the magic of adventure and exploration – these are for you.

Good to know

      • We’ll organise everything you need to put your mind at ease, from child lifejackets to selecting the destination.
      • With up to 9 berths, why not get two families together for a spectacular break?
      • Minimum age is 12. There must be at least one adult per two children.
      • Demand for these family charters in incredibly high, so you need to book 6-12 months in advance.

      • Quite simply: adventure. We sail to places no standard charter company can get to.
      • Your children will be discovering amazing wildlife, exploring woods, discovering shipwrecks on beaches, fishing and more

What do parents say?

Our two families sailed with Rubicon 3 up in Norway and it’s fair to say our children had an adventure they will never forget. They sailed, they ran up hills, they caught fish, they explored… and at the end of the day they slept deeply, so us parents could also relax and have a fun evening. Just a magical, magical two weeks that none of us will ever forget.

What’s included

You’ll need to sort your own connecting travel, but from the moment you join the yacht, the skipper and mate will be on hand to make sure your family has a true adventure. Our objective is that the children have fun and you the parents have fun with them – and a good bit of down time! With a skipper and mate, there’s lots of help to get everyone involved and we’ll encourage the children to learnt to navigate, steer the boat and trim the sails. We’ll devise the menu with you ahead of time to make sure that any slightly fussier eaters are going to be well looked after. We encourage all the adults aboard to take turns in cooking in the galley – it’s fun, easy and gives all the parents some time off too! Everything onboard is included in the price except any alcohol, so you have little else to worry about. Time to come and have some serious family fun!

Possible destinations

As parents ourselves, we know exactly what it’s like. It’s important that the destination is huge fun, with loads to do ashore and with short, manageable distances every day. For this reason, we do family charters on the following exciting routes.
