Destinations to suit your level
Each of our destinations is grouped by experience level so you can find the right sailing ground for your skills and qualifications. Level 1 destinations have the easiest and safest waters and are perfect for beginners. Level 3 destinations are the most challenging, so you’ll need to make sure that at least one member of your crew has the sailing experience needed to have fun and stay safe.
Please note: sailing levels are for guidance only, and all destinations are variable.
To sail in Belize without a skipper, you must apply for a temporary Certificate of Competency. This is issued by the Belizean Port Authorities, and is required for all bareboat charters. Please contact your pre-departure support agent for further information.
Certain regions in the Mediterranean and the Seychelles require formal certifications to sail a yacht. Please find your desired destination below to learn more about the certifications required.
