Bareboat means no crew – so just you, your family and your friends are the crew! – but never fear, the friendly and professional bareboat team will help you plan an itinerary perfectly tailored to your needs, as you carve out your own adventure amongst the islands, which are mostly uninhabited National Parks.
Whether you are after a secluded romantic getaway or a more adventure-packed holiday, you can enjoy the freedom of choosing your own route, and going at your own pace, as you discover untouched beaches and cascading waterfalls and scuba dive, snorkel and fish at your leisure.
With more than 40 anchorages, there is always a tranquil spot to lose yourself and at night you can gaze up at the endless expanse of starlit sky, sheltered from the breeze in an inlet or secluded bay.
You can choose a sailing yacht, a catamaran or a power cruiser, and you can go it alone or ask for a sail guide and hostess to accompany you. Vessels accommodate between two and 10 guests and are fully equipped with everything required for a comfortable stay – just bring your sunscreen, swimming gear, a hat and sunglasses… and a sense of adventure!
No licence is required for bareboating – you will receive a detailed and comprehensive briefing before you start - and help is only a call away on the VHF radio.
