New Boat Rentals & Yacht Charters - May

1) Sail the Pacific from Hawaii to Kiribati

Have you ever dreamed to sail the South Pacific? This nine-day adventure takes place from June 4th to 13th, and it will take you from Kiribati, a Pacific Island-state and one of the least visited countries in the world, to wonderful Hawaii. Nine days sailing, enjoying sunshine and admiring spectacular sunsets, while learning the ropes - and that is meant quite literally, as you’ll be traveling onboard a fully equipped expedition yacht, ideal for those who want to learn how to sail and perhaps embark on their very own Pacific crossing in the future.

2) Whale watching cruise from Seattle to Vancouver

Adventurers and wildlife lovers will definitely love the sound of this whale watching cruise, the best way to discover the unique marine ecosystem of the Pacific coast between British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest. The trip will begin in Seattle on August 1st, heading north, covering spots like the San Juan Islands and Bellingham where whales and orcas are known to congregate. Between one whale spotting and another, you’ll be helping researchers collect valuable migration data - giving your contribution to the environment while enjoying a life-changing adventure!

3) Sail California from San Diego to Ensenada

If the PNW sounds a bit too chilly for your liking, fear not - SoCal and Mexico are always nice and sunny, even in late summer! This expedition leaves San Diego on September 28th, reaching Ensenada in Mexico four days later. You’ll be able to relax, learn to sail, enjoy life at sea... and tacos, of course!

4) 7-Day Sailing from Volos to Lavrion

If the Mediterranean is your destination of choice for summer 2018, the Greek islands are always a good idea. If you’re looking for offbeat destinations, away from the hustle and bustle of Mykonos and Santorini, this cruise is ideal for you - a week-long adventure sailing from Volos to Lavrion via Evoia, three amazing destinations that are not yet overrun with tourists. This cruise takes place from August 11th to 17th - make sure you add some days at either side to explore Athens, if you’ve never been!

5) 10-Day Cruise from Santorini

In July and August, the Cyclades are well and truly overrun - but if you’re traveling in September, tourists are far fewer. This 10-day cruise of the Cyclades takes place between September 10th and 20th, and it includes stops in Santorini and other islands in the archipelago, with the opportunity to enjoy swimming and snorkeling in turquoise coves, tour whitewashed villages and explore archeological sites. The departure and arrival port is Lavrion, just a short hop from Athens - ideal to combine your cruise with a city break!

6) VIP Peloponnese Cruise

The Peloponnese is an ideal alternative to the Aegean Islands when in Greece, offering a great blend of incredible beaches, local villages, and historical sites. Local operator Konstantinos offers VIP day cruises on luxury yachts from Nafplio or any other marina in the Peloponnese, full day adventures taking you anywhere you’d like to go - itineraries can be fully customized according to clients’ needs.

7) Day Cruise of the Santorini Caldera

There’s no denying that Santorini is one of the most magical destinations in Greece - but if you’re visiting in summer, you should be prepared to share the magic with thousands of others. The sunset over Oia and unique red beaches are not quite as empty as Instagram shows - but if you truly want to get away from it all, a day cruise around the island’s famous caldera is a wonderful idea. Local operator Ioannis offers day-long adventures around Santorini, discovering the island’s raw beauty and wild nature away from the crowds. If you want to enjoy the sunset with no one in sight, evening cruises are also available.
