Skippered Sailing Holidays

For those who want to learn to sail or just have someone do the hard work for them, then why not take one of our skippers on board with you?

Our British skippers have lived and worked in the area for a number of years, and know the all the best places to visit so that you get the most out of the holiday.  The skipper will tailor the itinerary to fit with your desires and needs to ensure you have the very best Ionian sailing experience.

If you want to learn to sail, then they will have you sailing the boat on your own within the week, with the skipper keeping a watchful eye on proceedings.The skipper will require their own berth on the boat and will sleep onboard. We realise that this is your holiday, and the skippers are very conscious that you have your own time together and try and factor in your desires and wishes as much as possible.

A typical day will include sailing to a new destination every evening, with a good lunch stop for snorkelling and swimming in beautiful bays. You will visit a new village every evening.


For the ultimate holiday, why not take a Hostess as well?
In response to clients wanting a full-on skipper and hostess service on board our yachts for Ionian sailing holidays, Nisos Yacht Charter is now formally offering this service.

With this service, the skipper and hostess will ensure that you have a wonderful holiday and really have time to put your feet up and RELAX and enjoy all that the beautiful Ionian has to offer.

What do the skipper and hostess do?
The skipper and hostess will ensure that the yacht is kept clean and tidy and make beds in the mornings. Wonderful home prepared breakfasts and lunches will be provided for all on board and drinks served throughout the day as required.

It is also a great opportunity to learn more about sailing if you wish, as all of the guests can be as hands-on (or hands off!) as they wish.

Evening meals are excluded and usually will be taken ashore in the family-run tavernas you will encounter in the villages you moor up in the evenings. However, if you wish to have an evening meal prepared on board the yacht for you, then this can be arranged at additional cost. You may even want to experience a wonderful evening beach bbq? No problem!
