For Families

Our Procida flotilla sailing holidays are ideal for families as they provide a perfect blend of independence and support – your own yacht and space, but opportunity to meet with like-minded sailors and families doing the same route as you. 

As the lead boat remains nearby, families can enjoy a safe and relaxed sailing experience, creating lasting memories in a shared adventure on the open sea. 

Our Pontine Islands Flotilla is perfect for families, especially those travelling with younger children. Steeped in History, Myth and Legend, the Pontine Islands have remnants of ancient tunnel systems and grottos. Discover Ventotene – the birthplace of the Mermaid Myth – and the shipwrecks that are said to have found their watery resting place, at the hands of the Sirens. Or, enjoy family fun on Ischia, with a TukTuk (Ape/ micro-taxi) Tour of the Island, its phenomenal beaches, hiking routes and volcanic peaks. 

For Couples

Italy is – arguably – one of the most romantic countries in the world, and the Amalfi coast is absolutely one of the most romantic parts of Italy. If sharing incredible dining opportunities and fine wines is your love language, then our Procida Italian Cuisine Flotilla, which will take you to some of the finest locations for food and wine in the country (a foodie paradise), might be the perfect itinerary plan for you.

  • Amalfi Coast – an instagram-approved hotspot for romance, here you will find postcard-worthy pebble beaches set before what appears (from the sea) a wall of buildings – colourful, climbing high above ocean level – also providing some incredible walks (bring sensible footwear!) and quaint eateries.
