Family summer holiday top idea ... getaway onboard a yacht!

We have been operating family sailing charters in Croatia and Greece since 2004. The waters are safe for complete beginners, there are lots of beaches and bays with crystal clear water for swimming in and the sailing routes through the Islands are simply stunning – pine trees on some, picturesque little towns on others, and quaint fishing villages on others.

Getaway Sailing is a Greece and Croatia sailing holiday specialist that operates:

  • Independent yacht charters for families
  • Dedicated sail-alongside-us family holiday trips
  • Families and Parents with Teenager trips
  • Families with Pre-Teens catered for

For families new to sailing our yachts and catamarans offer:

  • All safety equipment included in the price
  • Yacht models to accommodate extended family and friends with their own bathroom or ensuite
  • A range of yachts to create your own mini flotilla where each family is onboard its own yacht
  • Onboard activities (map-reading, navigation, tying knots, route planning, anchoring, adjusting sails) to keep everybody occupied and doing things together if they feel like it
  • No need to budget for cinema, entertainment and holiday wet days because every day is a fun packed day on a yacht
  • Fully equipped onboard catering facilities so you don't have to eat out unless you want to. This makes the cost of onboard food, drinks and snacks a fraction of what you usually spend on summer holidays
  • A different Island every day without needing to pack your bag or wait for ferries
  • Bed linen, face and shower towels so you can pack less
  • Cabins with wardrobe and shelving to stow luggage and make everybody feel at home
  • Harbours and marinas close to airports that are one bus or a car ride to the yacht
  • Try stand up paddle boarding, windsurfing, kayaking, jet skiing or cycling
  • Snorkel and explore off the dinghy (small second boat with engine that comes with all of our yacht charters)

Who is there for you?

Our trips are all hosted by an experienced Tour Manager in addition to our wonderful skippers. The Tour Manager coordinates the week and will also be travelling with you. Our onshore Getaway Sailing holiday coordinators all work together to support your trip and all the activities available throughout the week. Your Tour Manager will meet you at the marina on Check-in day and introduce you and your fellow guests to the team.

Like-minded people

We are the only sailing holiday company offering age specific sailing trips, which means you will be sailing with like minded people of a similar age.

We offer a pre trip introduction to fellow guests, though many are from different countries as we often have a real International mix that always makes for a richer trip experience.


Sailing in a flotilla is perfect for families with teenagers because you already have a group of friends you just haven't met yet! Our evenings are social at dinner then you have time to do your own thing as you wish. It’s wall to wall sunshine all the way, beautiful coastlines, stunning islands and fabulous swimming bays.


No sailing experience is necessary, as you can be as involved as you like or just lie on deck in the sunshine and top up that tan. If you want to learn to sail we are experienced fully qualified skippers that have the time and patience to teach you ‘the ropes’ and involve you as much as you wish. It’s great fun, especially on regatta day when we race against the other yachts.


Flotilla dinners are hosted and feel more like a dinner party. These are at our favourite restaurants chosen for their great location, ambience and atmosphere. The perfect dining experience for families with teenagers.

Clear Pricing

Our pricing is clear with everything you need to know about. You may however choose to book a whole boat for your family.

Small and Personal

Our small company approach ensures a more personal and tailored holiday experience creating the perfect environment and atmosphere that allows you to completely relax and enjoy the mix of swimming, snorkelling, cave exploring, dinner parties and generally having fun, as well as the added bonus of learning to sail which introduces an extra dimension to the holiday with everyone being as involved as they'd like to be (or at least getting a photo at the helm!). If you prefer to chill, watch the beautiful coastline roll by whilst sunbathing and chatting on deck.

Our Experience

SILVER YACHT 2017We have been organising family sailing trips since 2004 so we have a wealth of experience in organising the ideal mix of families and activities.

Family Sailing Reviews

" Great week of relaxing, sailing, swimming and eating. Our skipper Ivan was a great teacher and we return to the UK slightly more competent sailors! Certainly a 'Getaway' to remember. "

Richard and Kate - Ilkley, U.K.

" WOW! What an amazing week we have had. We have absolutely loved every minute. We have visited some magical places and just when we thought it couldn't get any better, it did!!! We have swam, drank, laughed, sung and eaten all week! We have created some memorable family moments we will never forget! Our skipper took fantastic care of us. Thanks for all your help in the lead up to our trip Tony. You and Georgia answered everything and were so helpful..hopefully one day we can come back. Thanks for having us."

The Wilson and Lazzaro families - Melbourne, Australia

" First time staying on a sailing boat but definitely not the last time. Smooth sailing and we have been looked after 5 Star. Thanks Tony and team. Great way to experience the beauty and scenery of Croatia in a really chilled and relaxed way. Hosting and sailing just perfect."
