Book now for 2020… at 2019 Prices!

Categories:

Summer holidays are nearly over for some, but there is no better time to book your holiday for next year. Booking early means gives you the pick of the yachts, rooms and flights. Booking exactly what you want or need is important, but fixing the price now is also a major consideration.

Currency markets are always uncertain, but that probably applies more so these days (don’t worry, we will not even mention the ‘B’ word), so Seafarer’s double price guarantee, (great price and no currency surcharges), means our great value prices are guaranteed to stay that way. So book before the 31st October (nothing significant about the date…) for maximum choice and guaranteed prices and remember, all Seafarer holidays are ATOL/ABTA protected.

Seafarer MD drumming up support for good causes at “The cause”

SEAFARER MD DRUMMING UP SUPPORT FOR GOOD CAUSES AT ‘THE CAUSE’

 

Every serious charitable seafaring music fan needs to know about Stonebridge – a 3-piece popular music ensemble playing rock / jazz / reggae / funk cross-over. Something of a hidden secret to date, they’re putting on a live gig to raise money for two charities close to every sailor’s heart. It takes place on Friday 30th August at a club called  The Cause in Ashley Road, Tottenham Hale, N17 9LZ.

Chris ‘Bonzo’ Lorenzo, Seafarer Holidays’ MD, provides the percussive power that drives the combo along and says the playlist runs from 60’s thru 90’s with a couple of original numbers thrown in for good measure. Stonebridge have also secured talented singer and guitarist duo ‘Taking Notes’ as a back-up act.

SHORING UP COASTAL COMMUNITIES

Given the nature of seafaring the two charities benefitting from the gig are particularly supportive of coastal communities damaged by hurricanes and storms (there, but for the grace of God, go we). They are Disaster Emergency Committee (D.E.C.) and Medecins Sans Frontieres.

WE’D LOVE TO SEE YOU THERE

The gig starts at 8pm and runs until 10.30. There will be a bar at the venue and parking in Ashley Road. The venue itself is about 200m from Tottenham Hale Station (on the Victoria Line or Overground). There are various eateries in the vicinity (Ferry Boat Inn or Pizza Hut) and even a Premier Inn right across the road just in case you want to stay in town for the Bank Holiday weekend.

EVEN IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT YOU CAN STILL DONATE

Of course, you might already have made plans to prom on down to the Albert Hall and catch ‘Jeptha’ – arguably Handel’s greatest oratorio. So we’ve made sure you can still feel good about giving to charity anyhow. Clicking the above links will let you donate directly – you don’t actually have to turn up while they tune up, tune in or tune out!

The thrill of trying to outwit and drive the boat harder than your opponents brings many people into what we all know as the best sport in the world.

New product Announcement – Thailand Flotilla

Categories:

Sailing a tropical paradise

Weekly departures from 11th January to 11th April 2020

A few months back we sent a survey asking where you’d like to see us launch a winter flotilla.

Well, we read your replies and after  testing the waters (literally!) with our Thailand Rally back in June, we are launching our new winter flotilla in Thailand this winter.

Running from 11 January up to April, our Thailand flotilla explores the beautiful Phi Phi Islands. We have of course been promoting bareboat and cabin charter holidays here for years and our long-standing local trusted partner in Phuket ensures we have a great fleet of yachts and catamarans on offer together with top class support and  outstanding local knowledge.

The area offers some great sailing, amazing coastal scenery including iconic sights such as the so called  ‘James Bond Island’  as well as fascinating local culture.  This is a 7 night flotilla giving the opportunity for  sail & stay combinations in Phuket, Bangkok and beyond. We offer a fleet of monohulls and catamarans as well  cabin charter, sailing Thailand’s wonderful Phi Phi islands.

Sail & Stay

The area offers limitless possibilities to go exploring or relax at a superb beach resort pre and post cruise  We offer options to extend your stay in a beach hotel in Phuket or take a connecting flight to Thailand’s exciting capital Bangkok for a couple of days before your return flight to the UK. There are also possibilities in neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Vietnam.  Talk to one of our consultants who will be happy to assist you with a tailor made package.

The Weather

You can expect temperatures in the high 20’s to low 30’s c and plenty of sunshine Winds are typically north easterly at this time of year and range between force 2 and maximum force 6.

Cruising level 2+

With some  moderate to brisk sailing winds, and moderate tides the area is best suited to those with reasonable previous experience. Most nights are at anchor with plenty of use of dinghy and outboard to get ashore.

Phuket is an Island located in the southwest of Thailand in the Andaman Sea and is considered as the centre of one of the world’s most beautiful sailing areas. The area boasts countless idyllic islands, secluded beaches and all in lush tropical surroundings. The spectacular Phang Nga Bay with its amazing limestone pinnacles made famous through the James Bond film, is just one among many iconic sights we will explore on this amazing trip.
The lead yacht will be a large one with en suite cabins, so for those that don’t want to charter an entire yacht, you can book by the cabin. The support and camaraderie you have come to expect on a Seafarer flotilla will be there with daily briefings and some group meals as well visits to points of interest.
The area features stunning anchorages suitable for overnight stays as there are very few harbours and marinas, whilst charming villages offer unique lunchtime stops. Many of the islands in this region are ringed with dazzling coral reefs so rich in marine life that you’ll be tempted to spend much of your time in the water rather than on it.
All in all it’s a great mix of natural beauty, history and culture plus some great sailing as the icing on the cake!

The Itinerary

Day 1: The journey from the airport will give you your first glimpse of the lush Thai vegetation, Buddhist temples, and picturesque villages.

Day 2: After breakfast and the welcome briefing, we set sail to Koh Hong. This amazing site is only accessible by tender through a cave leading you to a lake surrounded by 100m cliff. Lunch at anchor.

Day 3: Depart to Koh Khai Nai, better known as “James Bond Island,” where the movie “The Man With the Golden Gun,” was filmed. Stop at Koh Panyi, a floating village where hundreds of fishermen live. The obvious thing to do is shop for fresh seafood for a fresh seafood feast on board.

Day 4: After breakfast, we sail for Koh Hong East and visit the spectacular lagoon. There is time for lunch then onwards to Koh Dam Kai, stopping at Ao Nang. We drop anchor in the sheltered bay and recommend dinner on board.

Day 5: Next we sail for famous Koh Phi Phi with a stop for lunch at Koh Mai Pai, a beautiful sandy beach with coral, fish, and crystal clear waters, perfect for divers and snorkelers. After lunch, we head to Koh Phi Phi Don, considered one of the most beautiful beaches ever, we also visit  Yongsakem Bay (also known as Monkey Bay).  Nui Bay for amazing sunset views is a must before, dinner, and overnight in this peaceful anchorage.

Day 6: An early start today as we sail for Koh Phi Phi Ley. Sailing around this island, you’ll discover the spectacular cliffs and caves. We return to Koh Phi Phi Don. Mooring at Ton Sai Bay, an ideal place from which to go ashore for exploration and shopping.

Day 7:After a leisurely breakfast we depart to Koh Kai Nai, a small island with a stunning white sand beach, well worth lingering for a swim, We next depart for Koh Lawa. Where can either go swimming or go hiking ashore. Enjoy a spectacular sunset over dinner.

PRESS RELEASE – Seafarer open Solent RYA Centre

Categories:

New Solent based sailing school

Flotilla and beach club holiday specialist Seafarer has announced the opening of their new Solent based sailing  school , operating from Shamrock Quay marina in Southampton.  This is in addition to their RYA recognised training centres already operating in Sibenik in Croatia and in Lefkas, Greece.
A comprehensive range of RYA yacht courses from beginner to Yachtmaster are on offer, whilst an additional initiative relates to refresher and pre-flotilla courses aimed at clients planning a flotilla or charter holiday, wishing to update their skills.

Managing Director and school principal Chris Lorenzo commented,

«Many of our clients sail perhaps only once a year on holiday, so our UK Sailing school offers weekend refresher courses, specifically designed for those planning a Mediterranean sailing holiday. There is emphasis on skills such as anchoring and ‘stern-to’ mooring, which many British sailors are not used to’.
Experienced sailors who do not have a qualification can formalise their experience with an ICC test,  which can easily be done over a weekend, ensuring that they comply with regulations  relating to skipper qualifications when chartering abroad.»

Weekend courses start at £249, whilst 5 day RYA courses start from £499.

In the opposite direction, those who have qualified in non tidal waters, have the opportunity to do a 2 day tidal conversion course. In addition, Yachtmaster preparation courses will involve a combination of Mediterranean and UK tidal  sailing, ensuring the broadest experience in a variety of conditions.
Weekend courses start at £249, whilst 5 day RYA courses start from £499.

Focus on: Kornati & Trogir flotilla 2019

Categories:

Wait....where's the busy marina?

Perhaps the question that comes up the most when we talk about sailing in Croatia is “We’ve heard it is beautiful, but it’s all marinas, right?”

Wrong! We’ve got more than a decade of experience under our belts, and we would love the chance to prove that assumption wrong!

A picture speaks a 1000 words, so here is lovely little Smokvica (“little fig” in Croatian) to show you what a Kornati islands “marina” looks like, oh, and by the way, this was taken yesterday (16th May 2019) just for the non-believers out there!

Yep, we know – loud, full of people, expensive….if you go without the local knowledge, that is…

Our base in Zaton

Either of our flotilla routes starts from our peaceful base – which is located in the sheltered approaches to the Krka River and is ideally and centrally located to explore the best of the Dalmatian Coast. Unlike a busy marina, our base is quiet, with most yachts looking out across the river.  A 10 minute stroll along the river leads to the small village of Zaton, which has all the amenities you need for the first and last night of your trip, with a supermarket, restaurants and bars. One of our favourite restaurants is located in Zaton, and we make use of their hospitality on the last night of the flotilla with a farewell meal, showcasing the local speciality, Peka, which is cooked under the hot coals in an outdoor fire.

Once the experienced local team have finished the briefings, its time to head out sailing, and depending upon the week, heading either north to the Kornati national park, or South towards Trogir and Split. One or other of the routes may appeal particularly if you are looking for either culture and history or alternatively national parks and the unspoilt Croatia, although of course the perfect choice would be to combine both routes in a two week holiday to experience the best of both.

The Kornati Route

The Iconic Krka Waterfalls

Our route heading north focuses on the Kornati National Park, often referred to as a “nautical paradise”. The park comprises 89 islands, islets and reefs and provides some excellent sailing and some beautiful spots from which to swim, relax and enjoy the unspoilt surroundings. Weather permitting, we avoid marinas entirely on this route, with a mixture of town quays and restaurant quays – very different from the regular image of busy marinas that pepper the coast and islands. We ease into the week in Zlarin, an island without cars giving a peaceful first night away from our base. Other stops on the route include Zminjak, a beautiful bay with a single restaurant – mooring is free, and the restaurant is excellent, with the bay providing the opportunity to enjoy an evening or morning swim in pristine waters. Smokvica next (photo above). After your free sail (with dozens of choices) its “friends reunited” in Skradin, and the trip to the falls.

The Trogir Route

Trogir, a “mini Dubrovnik”

Our Southern stops showcases the cultural and historic side of this beautiful coastline. The first of our favourites is Primosten, a small town dating back to the 16th century, originally strategically situated on an island – connected to the mainland by a movable bridge that has since been replaced with an embankment, turning it into a peninsula. The walled old town is stunning, and the views from the church at the top of the hill are well worth the climb through the cobbled streets. Rogoznica is next, on the way to Trogir, perhaps the biggest draw, and this UNESCO protected world heritage site has often been described as a “mini Dubrovnik” with a maze of cobbled streets, full of bars and restaurants, enclosed within the imposing city walls.

For the sailors

The winds in the area can be challenging at times, but the protected nature of the waters means that sailing is virtually guaranteed. The temperatures are idyllic during the summer months, with August high in the mid-thirties, although the breezes tend to keep the temperature manageable. Our experienced flotilla crew and local team know the area very well and ensure that any changes to the route are measured to keep everyone safe and enjoying the best that the Adriatic has to offer.

And whats more, we've got some great deals too...

Dodecanese Flotilla Holiday

Focus on: Dodecanese Flotilla 2019

Categories:

As we approach the summer season, we’ve been trying to keep you abreast of what’s new and exciting across our flotillas.

We have previously visited the Dalmatian Islands, The Lefkas Flotilla, The Sporades & The French Riviera.

So this week, we take a virtual trip to Kos and the Dodecanese Islands.

What we've kept

The Dodecanese has been a favourite sailing area of ours for quite a few years now as it allows us to run a flotilla with a bit more “real sailing” as well as all the usual Greek favourites.

We very much see this flotilla as the one to which you graduate after cutting your teeth in The Ionian. We fly to Kos, which is a great holiday destination in itself before you even consider it as a gorgeous sailing spot.

What we've improved

We get it, family or group holidays are a bit of a compromise operation and not everyone is a sailor… So, we’ve really raised our game when it comes to on-land excursions, trips and activities that don’t involve sailing!

Without wishing to sound too Brexit-y on today of all days, but these land-based activities should help you build a consensus around your European adventure!

A proper Sail & Stay: Kefalos Beach Club

We’ve teamed up with Kefalos Beach Club to give you a proper option to extend your stay in the Dodecanese after a week on flotilla. Kefalos Beach Club offers state of the art windsurfing in idyllic conditions as well as SUP’s kayaks and a small selection of dinghies.

Nysiros:
The Volcanic Island & Stefanos Crater

Take a trip to Stefanos Crater and the Volcanological museum in the village of Nikia on the volcanic island of Nysiros. While there hasn’t been an eruption since the 1880s. You can see the steam puffs and hear a crackle as you walk across the surface. Best leave the flip-flops on the boat!

Nysiros The Volcanic Island & Stefanos Crater

Symi:
A hike to the Kali Strata

Known as the island of colours, we suggest taking the 500-step meandering walk to the top where you will get a spectacular view of the island and the harbour. We recommend heading to the chapel of The Virgin Mary of the Castle, the highest point with the best views.

Symi A hike to the Kali Strata

Leros:
Castles & Scuba Diving

A visit to the Byzantine castle of Panteli will reward you with spectacular views of the Aegean.

For the divers amongst you, Leros is noted for its numerous wrecks, ships and aircraft from the 1943 battle for Leros. We can organise a wreck dive with our excellent local scuba diving partner.

Leros Castles & Scuba Diving

 

Diving Leros

In addition to all those options, we can point you in the right direction for your ‘free sailing’ days. In particular, we suggest you venture to the stunning island of Patmos and the monastery of St John the divine where he is reputed to have lived and written the book of revelation.

For anyone looking for an active day trip, we recommend a rock climbing trip on the island of Kalymnos which is very exciting. For those not looking to work up a sweat, why not take a trip to the local museum which looks into the island’s history of sponge divers.

Kos:
The Island of Hippocrates & Ruins of Asclepieion

Our start and finish point of Kos is of course famous as the island of Hippocrates the ancient Greek father of modern medicine. The extensive ruins of the Asklepieion are fascinating for all, but especially those from the medical profession. There is also an interesting museum on the site and our lead crew will organise a visit for all those interested.

Kos The Island of Hippocrates & Ruins of Asclepieion

With great sailing winds, an excellent fleet and so much to see and do, we think we’ve got a great balance here for keen sailors as well as culture vultures.

To find out about all this and much more, just give us a ring.

See you there!

THE SEAFARER THAILAND RALLY

Categories:

THE SEAFARER THAILAND RALLY  – SAILING A TROPICAL PARADISE
22 June 2019

You may remember a couple of months back we sent a survey asking where you’d like to see us launch a winter flotilla.

Well, we read your replies and we’ve decided to test the waters (literally!) on a new winter flotilla in Thailand this June! (Yes, we are aware that June isn’t Winter…).

This June, we’re running a mini-flotilla in the beautiful Phi Phi Islands. We have of course been promoting bareboat and cabin charter holidays here for years and our long-standing, local, trusted partner in Phuket will have one of their experienced skippers on the lead boat for that outstanding local knowledge, Also on board will be a trusted member of the Seafarer family, to keep things how you like them! We already love it, so if you love it too, this trip will become a permanent fixture.

Similar to our Peloponnese flotilla, this is part of a series of “pilot episode” flotillas. Be adventurous, be a Seafarer, join us!
We are calling this one the Phuket Rally, as it is smaller than a flotilla and will also be a cabin charter trip sailing Thailand’s wonderful Phi Phi islands.

 

Phuket is an Island located in the southwest of Thailand in the Andaman Sea and is considered as the centre of one of the world’s most beautiful sailing areas. The area boasts hundreds of idyllic islands, countless secluded beaches and all in lush tropical surroundings. The spectacular Phang Nga Bay with its amazing limestone pinnacles made famous through the James Bond film, is just one amongst countless iconic sights we will explore on this amazing trip.
The lead yacht will be a large one with en suite cabins, so for those that don’t want to charter an entire yacht, you can book by the cabin. The support and camaraderie you have come to expect on a Seafarer flotilla will be there with daily briefings and some group meals as well visits to points of interest.
The area features stunning anchorages suitable for overnight stays as there are very few harbours and marinas, whilst charming villages offer unique lunchtime stops. Many of the islands in this region are ringed with dazzling coral reefs so rich in marine life that you’ll be tempted to spend much of your time in the water rather than on it.
All in all it’s a great mix of natural beauty, history and culture plus some great sailing as the icing on the cake!

Sporades Flotilla raft

Focus on: Sporades Flotilla 2019

Categories:

As we approach the summer season, we thought it would be fun to keep you posted with the changes and improvements we’ve made to our flotillas for 2019.

We have previously visited the Dalmatian Islands, The Lefkas Flotilla & The French Riviera.

It’s Sporades Time!

What we've kept

The Sporades continues to be one of our most popular sailing areas, in no small part due to the near-perfect conditions: The Fresh Breezes, The uncrowded waters and the chance to do some ‘real’ sailing. We think this is the ideal step-up for someone who has been to the Ionian a few times and wants to make more use of their sailing skills.

The area gives a great mix of buzzing bays, stunning beaches, sleepy hamlets and authentic Greek Culture.

What we've improved

Fortunately, the wonderful area won’t change, the waters will be as crystal clear as ever and the food just as delicious. But there’s more to the Sporades than Sun, Swimming and Tavernas which is why we’ve really upped our game on land. We’ve also added some new yachts to the fleet, so book early to get your first choice yacht.

A proper Sail & Stay

We know that many of you who go to the Sporades end up regretting the fact you only booked one week! We’ve now partnered up with Adrina Beach Hotel in order to offer you the chance to spend an extra few nights on land, exploring the area. The hotel has a Dive Centre, SUPs, a spa and a private beach. A touch of luxury.

Mamma Mia Church! The obligatory tourist classic

Enjoy a 110-step walk to the world famous church of Agios Ioannis Kastri on Skopelos where a lot of the wedding scenes from Mamma Mia was filmed.

Agios Ioannis Kastri on Skopelos

Mount Pelion Take the train, or take a hike!

Take a trip on the iconic train on Mount Pelion [pictured] and simply enjoy the journey and the varied, stunning views on the way up. At the end of the journey we’ll point you in the direction of our favourite food stops!

The old traditional train on Mount Pelion, Greece

Kyra Panagia Desert Island Evenings

Kyra Panagia is in the centre of a protected marine national park. We spend a night at anchor under the stars in a protected bay, with time to explore ashore.

Kyra Panagia Desert Island Evenings

In addition to these excursions, there will be opportunities to go scuba diving, or to hire a bike and do a cycling tour of some of our favourite islands. Our personal favourite, however, is snorkelling in the crystal clear waters!

To find out about all this and much more, just give us a ring.

See you in the Summer!
