Famous for its creeks and nature reserves, Corsica attracts more and more boat enthusiasts and lovers of peaceful vacations every year. Fans of sailboats, catamarans or motorboats, excursion enthusiasts, or seasoned skippers, you will find your happiness among the different formulas: rental at the quay, co-boating, or simple boat rental, between individuals or with professional rental companies.
There are many wild anchorages and coves to explore around Ajaccio. Sail south and stop at Propriano. The initially mountainous and scrub-covered landscape gives way to a more arid environment until the famous cliffs marking the entrance to Bonifacio. Push on without hesitation to the Lavezzi Islands, a paradise for scuba diving and also the maximum southern point of the French metropolis.
If you don't have a license or you don't feel like a sailor, go with peace of mind by opting for the boat rental in Ajaccio with a skipper. You also have the possibility to choose a boat without a license to visit the small creeks of South Corsica, not far from the coast.
The rental of a boat in Ajaccio costs between 150€ to 1200€/day. Depending on the size of the boat, its year of construction, and depending on the owners, the rate of boat hire in Ajaccio can vary.
Considered a must-see place for boaters in Corsica, Ajaccio is home to two marinas.
L'Amirauté, or Charles Ornano, can accommodate up to 500 boats, making it the larger of the two Ajaccio marinas. Being more out of the way, the port de l'Amirautéalso has a lot of cachets since it offers an unobstructed view during a stroll along the docks at sunset.
The mountains are never far away and contribute, also largely to the beauty of the landscape. Just behind the old port, one can see the ferries docking. It's a real ballet of comings and goings that is impressive to watch. When you return from your sea trip, you can also enjoy a drink in one of the bars at the foot of this port.
The second port, Tino Rossi, is more sporting as it is favored by prestigious sailing events such as the Régates Impériales, the Voiles de l'Espoir, the Corsica Classic, and the Mediterranean Trophy.
Ajaccio's ports have the immense advantage of being in close proximity to the airport. As soon as you arrive on the island of beauty, you can easily refuel in the port and cast off.
Between Calvi and Propriano, Ajaccio is a popular destination for sailors who sail around Corsica, but also for tourists who want to visit the citadel that saw Bonaparte born.
Hiking, canyoning, or mountain biking, the most adventurous will find their happiness among the possible activities in Ajaccio. The activities in the water are also numerous on the island of Beauty: sailing initiations, catamaran trips, discovery by boat of the natural reserves, water skiing, scuba diving, etc. With its beautiful coasts lined with an explosive blue and its rocky mountains, Ajaccio is an excellent starting point for a sailing boat rental in Corsica.

And for a more active day at sea, rent a motorboat and go on a water-skiing, wakeboarding, or towed buoy trip!
The best time to sail in Ajaccio remains the high season, which runs from mid-April to mid-October.
However, due to the very high number of tourists in July and August, we still recommend that you anticipate your cruise reservations or sea trips. In order to ensure availability during these very high season months, we recommend that you book as early as December/January.
Beyond the summer period, a majority of the fleets are wintering on the mainland, the choice and availability of boats for rent in Ajaccio will be very reduced.
