As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.
A zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland, with landings taking place at piers (dry landings) as well as on beaches (wet landings). Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and can-do attitude is all you need.
This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending the majority of your time above board in the open air.
Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.
Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavourable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.
Due to the size of the yachts, sound carries easily from one side to the other and can wake your fellow travellers. If you’re planning to have a late night, it’s a good idea to head into town and experience the local night life.

Pack light... be prepared for anything and open to everything! It's an amazing opportunity to learn new cultures and meet new people. The destinations are amazing, but , it's the new friends that make the most impact!

If you are an avid snorkeller, then this trip is exactly what you are looking for. We snorkelled every day and visited some amazing reefs. Spending a week on a caravan was also a unique experience, but there were also many opportunities to go ashore as well. Judy, the Captain of the Abel, is a very experienced sailor, and knows the places we visited like the back of her hand. All this and the fact that Adrian, the cook, was a certified chef, and a really good one at that, made the trip one of the best trips I have ever experienced! Sailing with Adrian and Judy was an absolute pleasure.
