Sailing is a great way to discover the beauties of several
locations such as the Caribbean islands, Hawaiian Islands,
Bahamas, Florida, Greece and many other archipelagos. People
can go individually by hiring a bareboat. A bareboat is just
a boat without any crew or cook. People on the boat have to
do all the cooking, rowing and navigating. People opting for
a bareboat may hire a captain, known as a skipper. The skipper
would be of great help in navigation and providing information
on local details.
However, many companies provide entire vacation packages
for people who wish to go sailing. The most important component
of this package is the transport vehicle. The transport vehicle
may be a bareboat with a skipper. Alternatively, it may be
a yacht of a size that will depend on the number of people
onboard. For a large number of people, catamarans can be hired.
Catamarans are motorized launches that can accommodate a big
group. There are also the trimarans, which are more advanced
and more spacious versions of the catamarans. There are also
local transport like the schooners in Maine and the gulets
and caiques in Greece.
Vacation packages also include all the facilities that may
be provided onboard. Food and drink is provided. If it is
a big enough catamaran, it will have its own kitchen as in
a cruise. There is also scuba and snorkeling gear on board
if people wish to pursue these activities when the boat is
anchored. Binoculars are a must and are generally provided
by the organizers. There are also other things like photography,
live music, etc. which some organizers provide in order to
make their offers more attractive. Children are provided with
Most sailing vacation packages have tie-ups with hotel resorts
on the islands. During nights, people stay in these hotels
and sail in the daytime. This is called as a stay-sail vacation
package. The hotels may be three-star, four-star or five-star,
depending on the budget of the vacation.
Prices of sailing vacation packages depend on the number
of days of the sailing and the facilities that will be taken.
It also depends on the kind of hotel and its service in a
stay-sail vacation package. The destination itself is an important
factor when a price is quoted.
