We had a fantastic sailing week exploring the Northern Sicily and Eolian Islands Lipari and Volcano with Frizzante. Mark is a competent and professional skipper. The ambience in the shipshape boat is forthcoming and relaxed. We enjoyed good food, music and sailing. Happily recommended!
Great skipper and crew. Obviously highly knowledgeable and experienced about sailing and the sea. Beautiful boat with lost of space - felt as one with nature. The skipper and crew went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and also had a fun time - trips to shore, nights chatting and singing under the stars, great food. Saw some amazing sealife - dolphins (two types), shark, tuna, turtles. Was great to have a very knowledgeable WWF scientist with us explaining about the sealife and challenges all the way. A magical experience. Very much looking forward to another adventure soon.
I guess the communication was the biggest issue, despite speaking some English relaying information back was poorly executed by the skipper, which have cost me my flight, some lack of empathy during hiking trips instead of allowing time to rest he was pushing for faster or take the bus.
Speaking French round the table despite 2 people not speaking the language out of 4 was little rude, otherwise he was very caring when I was unwell during sailing at times and provided effective medical solution, The trip however was a blast, beautiful islands and locals with packed activities, and amazing memories to remember.
It’s now March and we had our first sailing holiday with Mike last October and not a day has gone by where we’ve not thought about our amazing adventure. Mike is a fantastic teacher, he shared his passion for sailing, made us all feel safe and took us to the most beautiful parts of the islands. We will definitely be back x
Alessandro is an attentive and reliable skipper. His sympathy and availability convinced me immediately to confirm the holiday with him and the choice turned out to be excellent. The navigation was pleasant and flew, Alessandro proved to be reliable, attentive and able to make the group feel at ease. The boat is nice, tidy, comfortable even in winter and very clean.
All this, combined with laughter and good shared moments, makes me absolutely recommend a holiday on board with him.
I have said this a couple of times, so please forgive me if I am repeating myself. My experience with Capt. Fabrizio was fantastic. His boat is comfortable and very well appointed, his cooking is of chef quality, and his role as an instructor is phenomenal. He is very clear in his explanations, and gives the crew plenty of opportunity to practice the manouvers without getting stressed or uptight. He is as cool as ice, making small corrections or suggestions for improvement in a relaxed and very effective way. I recommend him without reservations!
Our trip from beginning to end was "plain sailing". Communication with Mike was great and he gave me confidence to book as this was our first time with SailSquare.
Mike looked after us like we were family, nothing was too much trouble. He is so relaxed and calm and took so much time to explain how to sail, he's a natural teacher! I would not hesitate to go again. Thanks Mike.
Superb cruise from Capo d'Orlando in Sicily to Nettuno over 8 days on a clean boat, big, easy to maneuver, in the company of Alberto who made us live beautiful experiences: swimming behind the boat in front of Stromboli, dinner at the port of Ischia, unforgettable arrival in Capri at sunrise, walk with a view in Palmarola, paddle in a beautiful bay of Ponza. I learned a lot about sailing and participated with pleasure in the maneuvers, but without ever feeling obliged. The boat is large, clean, well maintained, functional and the atmosphere on board is always good.
We really enjoyed our trip. The boat was nice and spacious though had it been a full trip then it would have been somewhat cramped. The sailing ended up being more challenging than I had expected as winds were quite high but we enjoyed that. Do take a waterproof jacket (we didn’t!). We did have to change the route because of the winds but we really enjoyed the variety of island stops - Places you would be unlikely to get to without your own boat. Rea was a great skipper and had lots of good tips of places to go on the islands .
I joined Alberto on his yacht in Sicily for a 7 day cruise to Nettuno in late September. The 52’ yacht was well maintained and fully functional with many luxuries including paddle board, snorkelling equipment, two fridges and electronically operated heads. Alberto was a very experienced skipper and I felt safe at all times. There was plenty of opportunity to learn as much or as little about sailing as you wanted during the week. We enjoyed many hours of cruising with the sails up and called at a number of beautiful Islands. Alberto found the most sought after anchorages and moorings as well as organising treks ashore which meant we saw the best of the Islands we called at. The crew were all great and I would recommend cruising with Alberto on his beautiful yacht.
It has been a magical week sailing around the Ionians with Andrea! He is very accommodating and welcoming, and despite early age does have some solid sailing experience and knowledge of the sea, navigation and weather conditions. Can't recommend highly enough to anyone looking for a sailing experience, and looking forward to another adventure in the sea!
Alessandro was a great hostess during the journey, not only looking after the guests, cooking, cleaning for us but just a fun company to be around, taking us to hidden caves and arranging other fun activities!
We had a wonderful time on board. Great company, great food, manage to visit some really lovely little towns and hike the Path of the Gods. I feel completly zen after the holiday.
Would highly recommend and book again.
Thanks to Alberto we had a marvelous week of 6 islands in 6 days, vulcans, grots, caves, increadible lagoons and sails. Alberto is friendly, cooperative and very helpful, he does not speak a lot but if you tell him about your needs, he takes them into consideration at once and adjusts the program. His boat is comfortable and well cared. He is not money oriented at all (some skippers bring you only to the places where they get commissions), on contrary he helped us to economize the money. He knows a lot and loves the sea and navigation. You feel well protected and cared when you are with him on the boat. We'll repeat the experience with pleasure, thanks Alberto!
George is the owner of the sail boats and he has at least 2 skippers that he works with (Eric & Georgios), so your experience can differ really depending on which skipper you get. George is a really cool guy with lots of great tips and local insider tips for taverns, caves and beaches, however, he is not the skipper. Our skipper was Eric.
Eric is a polite person, we felt safe with him as he is a experienced sailor. Unfortunately, he preferred speaking French on the boat, which wasn’t so nice for the international crowd. My boyfriend was really curious to learn about sailing, but the English communication was an issue for that. I’d recommend the trip for French speaking tourists.
He is also a bit introverted, so if you want to have someone entertaining the crowd, giving proactive advise, then this is not the skipper for you.
However, overall Eric is a great person with a good heart. He brought us to some hidden gems for swimming and knows a few nice taverns in the area.
One of the most beautiful holidays of our lives, with the right mix of notions about sailing, relaxation, and discovery of the natural wonders offered by the marine park of Tavolara. For some of us it was our first time sailing, and I must say that the holiday was above all expectations. Valerio and Ada put anyone at ease and were extremely kind and helpful for the duration of the holiday. A heartfelt thanks!
See you next :)
I traveled solo to sail the Istrian Peninsula with Maurizio and other crew. È stato perfetto! In short it was a fantastic trip. A highlight was Maurizio’s thorough knowledge of the places we visited, his boat and sailing. Despite being the only non-Italian speaking member of the crew, all made me feel welcome and included me in conversations and laughter. I look forward to traveling with Maurizio again. Perhaps I’ll also add to my own sailing credentials as Maurizio is an accomplished instructor.
Perfect experience! Sylvain is a really competent skipper and is truly passionate about sharing his knowledge with his crew. The whole crew was involved in all the activities on the boat, from deciding and calculating the route to all types of sailing manoeuvres. We all learnt a lot while also relaxing in beautiful beaches and sharing good Greek food in tavernas in the various choras we visited.
Emmanuel brought us to beautiful places and made sure everyone was experiencing a great week. He adapted to those who wanted to learn and those who wanted to relax. He is quick with a joke in multiple languages. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic week sailing with Emmanuelle. She is an amazing skipper and as a family we always felt very safe at sail. Emmanuelle was always on hand to help out and is incredibly thoughtful. Sabir is a beautiful boat, but it did get a little hot at times at night, but it was a particularly hot week!
Magical trip…. Just magical!!! Our skipper Nicola was fenomenal in every sense of the word. Gorgeous sites, beautiful navigation routes, great music thanks to our DJ ( Grande Fabrizio) and the crew (meaning us…lol) was incredible. New friends made for ever. Would definitely repeat and recommend this amazing company!!!
Beautiful experience especially for me who have never been in such a boat .. thanks to my skipper I drove sailing???? ... the sea of Greece that I tell you to do .. super easygoing people.. go-go parties.. Dissatisfied????????????
First experience with CrazySail. Certainly, it will be not the last. Marvelous and magical moments throughout the trip. Astonishing locations, beautiful weather and the food on port was amazing. Our skipper Nicola was superb in every sense. He truly lives up to their motto "just crazy about sailing". I had no expectations and I am taking with me memories and new friendships that I will cherish a lifetime. What else can you ask from a holiday trip!
My 2 recommendations is more free time at port and A/C on boat.
Grande Nicola and the entire CrazySail team.
Super sailingholiday. Giuseppe was very kind and in a good mood. He was always taking safe decisions both when sailing and in and around harbours and moorings. He knew the good places to swimm and the good restaurants. Will highly recommend the trip. Henrik, Denmark.
Our family of four (2 adults and two children aged 8 and 10) have just finished an amazing 14-day sailing trip with Francesco. We visited so many beautiful islands, coves and ports including Zakynthos, Kefalonia, Ithica, Lefkada, Kalamos, and Kastos. Francesco was a brilliant captain and we feel so grateful to have selected him. He was wonderful with our children, very relaxed whilst being extremely conscious of safety, and went out of his way to ensure that we had a well-balanced holiday that included sleeping in secluded bays, visiting charming fishing villages, eating in some wonderful tavernas and relaxing as a family. We would highly recommend Francesco for your Greek sailing adventure!
Beautiful holiday with Paolo! He is a reliable and patient person. Attentive to the needs of the whole crew.
We sailed between the beautiful islands of the Maddalena archipelago and the coast of Corsica in total safety and relaxation.
Claudio is a fantastic skipper who always manages to create a great atmosphere and who takes care of every person on board making sure of the
Well-being of everyone.
His sailing experience always makes you feel safe and his passion for the sea is transmissible :) The fact that people like me are coming back for the second time and can't wait to return to the next excursions organized by Claudio is already a review in itself????
Thank you Claudio for this wonderful week!! I also thank the amazing people who have been on board and who have made this week full of laughter, great recipes and stories of life!!!
Such a unique experience! Enrico was really great, he knows the sea like the palm of his hand, we felt secure the whole time, and he’s an amazing cook! Can’t wait to return next year! Grazie mille Enrico!
I spent some relaxing days on the beautiful islands of Ibiza and Formentera on board. Santo and Luisa smoothly sailed us from beach to beach and cook delicious meals. The plan changed slightly due to the winds, but that wasn't a problem at all! We got to know some calmer beaches on the north of the island. I totally recommend spending your vaccation with the company of Luisa and Santo :)
Dario was an exceptional skipper! The boat was spacious and clean. We had a great weekend and Dario was extreamly helpful and hospitable during the whole trip. We learned a lot about sailing, the lake, and the small surrounding towns thanks to Dario’s deep sailing experience. I would really recommend this sailing trip and Dario for everyone!
A truly great experience to go sailing with Alessandro and his girlfriend Sara. The hospitality was through the roof! Super delicious home cooked food morning, lunch, and dinner, and great sailing where you can join in on helping if you like. Unfortunately sailsquare only allows to give 5 stars. They have earned 6 :)
Amazing sailing trip. Alessandro is a great skipper, very experienced. Alessandro and his girlfriend Sara made us feel very comfortable the minute we boarded the boat. It was such a pleasure being in their company for a week. Great local cooking too. I can highly recommend a sailing trip with Alessandro and Sara! You will not regret it.
Behind every memorable sailing holiday is a memorable skipper.
For the skippers on Sailsquare, sailing is much more than work, it's a passion.
