Want to go on a sailing holiday in the Mediterranean but have no experience? Not to worry! With Click&Boat, you can simply book a boat with a skipper and even a crew and they will take care of that for you. The skippers that will accompany you during your nautical adventure have a lot of sailing experience. They know the area like only a local can and can therefore create an itinerary that guides you through the most beautiful and perhaps unknown places in the area. Add even more comfort and convenience to your holiday by booking with not just a skipper but also the whole crew.
The crew will make sure that you want for nothing during your cruise in a catamaran or sailboat, leaving you free to sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience. Even if you have experience as a sailor and simply want to learn from the best, hiring a boat with a skipper can be a great way to continue your learning.
Catamarans and sailboats are different boats, both suitable for a spectacular boating holiday of comfort and luxury but each with special qualities that makes them more suited for different types of adventures.
Sailboats are single-hulled sailing vessels that are specially designed to sail for several days. They have everything you need for an extended sailing trip: sleeping cabins, bathrooms, a kitchen, a living area and, of course, storage space for luggage. On the deck, you can relax and enjoy the coastal panoramas flashing past. In addition, on a sailing cruise in the Mediterranean, thanks to the wind, you can travel long distances without using much fuel. On a sailboat, you will also feel the sea more and you will sail to the rhythm of the waves, so a cruise in a sailboat is perfect for those who want a more authentic sailing experience.
The catamaran, meanwhile, has a double hull, which brings some advantages that a sailboat doesn’t have. First of all, thanks to the double hull structure, there is more space on board. In the two hulls are the cabins and in the bridge, there is usually a seating area and the kitchen. Outside, on the deck, is the wheel or rudder, with a comfortable space for the skipper to sit. There is also usually a solarium at the bow, nets where you can lie down and watch the sea passing by underneath. Another advantage of a cruise in a catamaran is that the boat is usually much more stable on the waves, resulting in a lower risk of any passengers suffering from seasickness, as well as being more spacious. Sailing on a catamaran requires special skill in rough seas, however, which is why they are usually booked with a skipper. As they have a double hull, it will be more difficult to find moorings (especially in some Mediterranean ports, such as the Balearic Islands) since you will need more space and it will be more expensive.
To go on a sailing holiday in the Mediterranean is to go sailing through a sea that has witnessed the evolution of several ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians and the Romans, all of whom have marked the coasts of the territories that surround the sea. During your voyage, don't forget to stop at the charming, little fishing villages along the coast.
This sea is characterised by having a homonymous climate. Winters are mild and summers dry and hot (or sometimes mild depending on the area). The good thing about the Mediterranean is that in many of its areas you can sail throughout the year, although in order to get full enjoyment out of the experience, we recommend sailing during the summer months. During the spring or autumn months, it can also be a pleasant temperature to enjoy water activities (depending on the year) and there are also usually more boats available. If you decide on a cruise in a sailboat, the most common winds in the Mediterranean are Mistral, Tramontana, Gregal, Bora, Levante and Siroco around Spain, France and Italy, and Meltemi and Khamsin around Greece and Turkey.
When you set sail on a boating holiday, it is because you long for a pleasant and memorable experience. For this reason, we would like to give you some examples of activities that you can do when you embark on your nautical adventure.
Firstly, you will definitely be able to enjoy captivating coastal panoramas from the deck of your boat. Whatever destination you're heading to, from the water you can sail further out to sea for some truly unique views of your destination. Depending on the location, a boat can also take you to points of interest that are inaccessible by land, such as beautiful bays, hidden coves or uninhabited islands. The Mediterranean is a fantastic place to dive due to its sparkling turquoise waters, and you can also discover new coves paddling on a paddle surfboard. Of course, you can also take the opportunity to practise your favourite water sports. The children love the inflatable! There are often other extras that you can include and add to your sailing holiday too, such as dinners, water ski equipment, jet skis, scuba diving and snorkelling equipment, a dinghy and much more.
Italy, Croatia, Spain, Greece, Turkey... It can be difficult to choose where you should go on your Mediterranean cruise in a sailboat or catamaran. You should keep in mind that in a week you can only really visit one region well. If you want to visit more areas or countries you will need to add more weeks to your voyage.
In Italy, you can explore the largest island in the Mediterranean. With pristine beaches and sumptuous food, Sicily offers an incredible travel experience. Sail along the Sicilian coast and discover beautiful cities such as Palermo, Monreale, Catania, Messina and Trapani. Also, take the opportunity to sail through Capri, Tuscany or Sardinia.
In France you can sail along the entire Côte d'Azur, docking in the different villages of the French province along the way. Do not forget to visit Corsica, the largest French island in the Mediterranean.
Greece is one of the most romantic Mediterranean destinations for your sailing holiday, with about 6,000 islands just begging to be explored. In Mykonos you will find a swinging nightlife, but the real jewel is Santorini, a mandatory stop on any boat trip through Greece. Located in the southern Aegean Sea, the archipelago was created about 1,500 years ago as the result of a volcanic eruption. At the top of the cliffs rise the iconic white houses with their blue domes, which have borne witness to its unique history. Santorini invites all passing through on a cruise in a catamaran or sailboat to stay.
In the south of Croatia, Dubrovnik awaits you. Dubrovnik is one of the most famous and popular tourist destinations on the Adriatic coast. This is due, among other things, to the historical sites and the unique atmosphere of the city. Dubrovnik is the perfect starting point for a boat trip to the Elaphiti Islands. This impressive archipelago is made up of 13 small islands separated from the mainland by the Kolocep Channel.
Spain is another prime destination for sailing holidays in the Mediterranean, with Menorca, Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera, and the Balearic archipelago in the vicinity! Keep in mind that each of these islands requires a week of navigation. Ibiza and Formentera together form the Pitiusas Islands and can be visited together, they are the perfect combination of party and relaxation respectively.
In Turkey, you will find no less than four seas: the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara. The list of dream destinations on the Turkish Mediterranean coast is endless. You will encounter countless beaches of great beauty, unique natural spectacles, ancient culture, and picturesque cities with a rich nightlife.
The cost of sailing in the Mediterranean depends on several factors. First of all, the price varies according to the type and size of the boat. Catamarans, for example, are usually more expensive than sailboats. In addition to the boat itself, the sailing season also influences the price. In the Mediterranean Sea, the high season falls during the summer months. In low season (winter), as well as in spring and autumn, you can find lower prices. The duration of the rental also influences the price. Some boats can only be rented for weeks. Food, fuel, moorings and crew are not usually included in the price but it depends on each individual owner and boat. Before booking you can add the extras you need to your boat.
As previously mentioned, the Mediterranean Sea is surrounded by various countries, all of which are fascinating destinations for a sailing holiday. Naturally, which location you choose will also affect the cost. You will find the cheapest prices in Greece or Croatia, while the French coast or some destinations on the Spanish coast can be more expensive, especially in high season. A week-long cruise in a sailboat in Croatia can cost about £1425 and a week-long cruise in a catamaran in Greece about £1755. On the other hand, a week-long cruise in a sailboat in France can cost around £1675 or more, and a week on a catamaran in Spain can cost around £2510.
