Just imagine sailing the seas on boats that are designed like boutique hotels, down to the very last detail with carefully selected Italian-design choice linens and tableware that provide a touch of elegance to every setting. Imagine being lulled to sleep by gentle waves together with the comfort of luxury amenities.
All of this and more is possible with Crossing the Sea, a sailboat cruise for families who want to get the most out of every second of their holiday. Tour the Sporades Islands or Aeolian Islands and experience bespoke services that ensure complete relaxation for adults, and for little ones, engaging educational activities that teach them about the sea while having non-stop fun on a children-dedicated sailboat. Excursions run from June 27 through Aug. 15.
Younger sailors can ride an entire sailboat equipped for kids, where guests aged 5-14 years can sail and enjoy scrumptious meals together. A jam-packed daily activities program that includes sailing lessons, sport, games, diving competitions, exploring mysterious places and treasure-hunts is alternated with moments of pure relaxation – playing board games, riddles, and stories. All of this under the watchful eyes of exclusively dedicated staff members, from early morning until after sunset.
With adults in mind the staff has created the ultimate yacht holiday with fresh gourmet Italian cuisine, a Skipper for each yacht to sail and explore as you wish, hotel like services with an assigned hostess and plenty of water sports and activities to get your feet wet.
Along with fascinating coastlines, the staff finds only the best beaches to set up snack buffets and to serve ice cold drinks. Relax and enjoy the comfort of design sunshades and giant beanbags which have been specifically designed for guests to indulge in the perfect luxury beach picnic. Keep active with water sports such as water skiing, canoeing and banana boat rides in a small bay. Otherwise enjoy the liberating feeling of snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, sea-scooters and fishing in natural bays, or sail a short crossing with the salty breeze and the waves as your only companions.
Given that the sea is known to whet your appetite, the staff has designed menus with produce and recipes inspired by Italian tradition. When your feet touch land, authentic traditional meals bursting with flavor await you.
Breakfast is served on board every morning to prepare you for another day at sea. Light lunches are enjoyed either on board or on the beach, consisting of mouth-watering Italian dishes and also traditional cuisine. Enjoy cocktails, canapés and soft drinks while watching the sun dip into the horizon. Each evening sample cuisine in the region’s authentic taverns or remain on board for an exclusive dinner under the stars. Delicious gourmet meals paired with high quality Italian wines and olive oil are prepared daily with fresh local ingredients.
The transportation is provided by four-cabin Catamarans that feature four double cabins, four bathrooms with shower and are suitable for a maximum of eight passengers. The space onboard is comparable to a beach house.
Crossing the Sea is truly a unique sailing experience that combines the flavors of Greece with the excitement of sailing.
