Start your adventure from our base on the island of Terceira and from here, plan the bespoke sailing trip of your choice! Guests can choose from all of the 9 islands of the Azores, making a truly personalised itinerary including exactly where they would like to go and how long to stay for.  We will work out a plan for you, or simply go where the wind takes us.
The briefing with the skipper regarding weather conditions, wind direction and the request of the guests will be the deciding factors of each unique trip. 7 days minimum. Transfer from the Airport of Terceira to the Marina on the island where you will board the stunning 2019 yacht, the Elan Impression 50, the largest charter sailing yacht in the Azores. On board, breakfast will be prepared for you and light meals when at sea. Bedlinen, bath towels and cleaning are all included. When on land, reservations in local restaurants are made for guests to be able to discover the local gastronomy first hand. Our experience of the local islands and sailing conditions have allowed us to calculate the times based on motoring when there is no wind and the itinerary has been designed to allow every guest the opportunity to explore the islands, the culture, heritage, nature and traditions with plenty of time to also be able to relax. Also included in the trip is the chance to make adventure stops at sea, ideal for swimming, canoeing, snorkelling and much more. We will pre order your car rental, book your guided excursions or give you detailed directions to make it easy to find exactly where you are looking for or what to do, including documentation (hiking tracks, island maps etc). Choose from hiking, golf, diving, private guided tours, whale watching, swimming with dolphins and much more. Your itinerary is only limited by your imagination! Experience the Atlantic Ocean with all it’s natural beauty and observe dolphins, whales, sea turtles and the incredible wildlife of the ocean as nature intended.
