Enjoy an Ionian flotilla holiday in 2023 with Nautilus Yachting - now with £100 OFF!
We don't believe in 'regimented' flotilla sailing. You're free to plot your own course during the day. The flotilla skipper is on hand to give you advice and support - from sorting out a snarled anchor to reserving you a table for dinner on the quayside. Less experienced skippers will appreciate his help with mooring "stern-to" or "bows-to" on the quayside at the end of an enjoyable afternoon's sail. And if you are an experienced sailor you can choose to leave the flotilla for a few days, joining up for the barbecue evening or other social event.
Those new to sailing or looking to brush up on their skills can take advantage of our learn to sail on flotilla option.

SAILING IN COMPANY ON YOUR OWN YACHT ...
A "flotilla" is a group of yachts sailing in company accompanied by a flotilla skipper and hostess on the lead yacht. You have virtually all the advantages of independent yacht charter, plus the support of the flotilla crew to make the most of your flotilla sailing holiday. You're the skipper of your own yacht, and each day's activities are yours to decide - you can sail hard or simply idle towards the next port soaking up the sun on the way. Flotilla sailing holidays are a popular choice for couples, friends and families.
Enjoy a great activity holiday ...
The flotilla sailing itineraries are arranged so that you visit the best places but there is always the opportunity for free sailing. Stop for a lunchtime swim and picnic in a beautiful bay. Enjoy great sailing in the afternoon breeze before mooring up for the night in a bustling harbour where you can step off your yacht onto a quayside full of bars and tavernas.
Share the fun with your family ...
During school holidays there are usually other families on the flotillas. Children, especially teenagers, love flotilla holidays. There's so much going on afloat and ashore - no time to get bored! There's plenty for them to get involved with as crew - plotting the course, weighing anchor, setting the sails. Every evening the flotilla yachts are moored up together so there's plenty of opportunity to meet up with your new friends.
