The perfect introduction to sailing and the Azores - A one week sailing holiday on the island of Terceira.
Guests live on the yacht and are introduced slowly to the world of sailing, making this the ideal sailing trip for beginners.
We explore the sailing grounds around the island and travel for as far and as long as our guests desire, while making adventure stops along the route for swimming, canoeing, SUP, snorkelling and much more.

As well as the exciting sailing trips, there is also time for guests to explore the beautiful island of Terceira. We will pre order your car rental, book your guided excursions or give you detailed directions to make it easy to find exactly where to go and what to do, including documentation (hiking tracks, island maps etc).

Experience the Atlantic Ocean with all its natural beauty; diving, whale watching, swimming with dolphins, sea turtles and the incredible wildlife of the ocean as nature intended, or choose from hiking, golf or private guided tours.
