Sailing trips

After the ultimate holiday that takes you out of the everyday and onto the high seas of adventure?

Look no further than our impressive range of Intrepid sailing trips. They’re the perfect way to mix relaxation, exploration and fun in some of Europe, Asia and the Caribbean’s most celebrated seaside destinations.

Why do an Intrepid Sailing trip?

  • Experienced skippers: Our skippers have years of experience sailing the high seas and are a wealth of knowledge about the area you're in and everything sailing.
  • Best of both worlds: Our sailing adventures are a great mix of time spent exploring both in and on top of the water with plenty of time on land to see the sights.
  • No sailing experience needed: If you'd like to learn the ropes then your skipper will show you how. If not, simply relax on deck and soak up the sun and gentle ocean breezes.

FAQs

We sail on monohull yachts in Europe and the Caribbean, and multihull catamarans in Thailand. The configuration of the boats is available in the trip notes.

If you don’t want to lift a finger, then you don’t have to. But, on the other hand, if you’re keen to get involved, then there are always things to assist with under instruction from the skipper.

There is approx a 30/70 split between land-based and water-based activities, although much is dependent on the weather conditions. There are usually at least a few hours each day spent exploring ports, trekking the surrounding areas or relaxing on beaches. And depending on location, of course, the chance to wine and dine at the local hot-spots.

These will vary from trip to trip - check trip notes for the specific details. Please note that due to sailing being a heavily weather-dependent activity, sometimes itineraries may have to change. We would therefore recommend an additional night at the beginning and end of the trip to ensure nobody misses any onward flights.

Maximum capacity on our boats is 8 people.

Check trip notes for individual specifics but as a general rule, most meals are included on Thailand trips, whereas on Europe and Caribbean trips, you’ll contribute to a kitty, and some meals will be on land, giving you the perfect opportunity to try out the local tavernas and restaurants. 

You are welcome to drink on board - in fact, nothing enhances a sunset more than a gin and tonic - but alcohol is BYO (bring your own) and red wine isn't permitted due to staining. So make sure you get what you need before departure.

The skipper will allocate rooms on arrival to the boat. Single travellers will be paired up with another passenger of the same sex, and this may mean sharing a double mattress.

 Our most common question is about the room configuration. People are often hesitant about the idea of sharing a double mattress with another traveller of the same sex. Sailing boats tend to be very compact, and the close-quarters nature of this travel is part of the adventure. Sleeping quarters are designed to utilise the absolute minimum amount of space in order to keep the communal areas as big as possible. In practice, lots of passengers end up sleeping on deck, as it’s warm and there’s no air conditioning on a sailing boat.

 No. Bathroom facilities are shared. Fresh and hot water is available for showers, and toilets are either electronic or hand pump.

Due the size of the boats and the nature of a sailing trip, there is very limited space for storing luggage. So make sure you pack light, and only bring fabric/canvas luggage, otherwise you might have to eat your dinner off your big heavy suitcase…
