We love sailing in the Hamptons in the summer, it's a bit chilly out there during the rest of the year. In order to offer sailing lessons year-round, we've partnered with Colombia by Boat to offer charters aboard their 2006 47' Beneteau Oceanis. The charters will depart from Cartagena, Colombia, and we'll visit Cholon and the Rosario and San Bernardo Islands, which are to the South of Cartagena along the Colombian coast.
But these won't be your average charters. Along the way, we'll help you apply the skills you've learned sailing with us on small boats to sailing on a larger yacht. While the theory behind sailing remains the same regardless of the size of the boat, there's a lot to learn when transitioning to a yacht. Winches, navigation, watch-standing, chart plotting and more. We'll work with you and your group to tailor the experience to exactly what you'd like to learn. This is a great option for those who are interested in chartering their own boat one day!
The Colombian coast isn't your average Caribbean island. Along the way, we'll make stops to explore the islands, snorkel, and indulge in the local cuisine. Highlights will include night snorkeling with bioluminescent plankton, swimming around a submerged plane, and learning about Colombian maritime history. Before and after the trip, you'll have a chance to explore Cartagena on your own. It is a safe, beautiful city that has thrived with tourism in recent years. The colonial, Spanish style architecture of the old city is truly breathtaking. There are daily, affordable and direct flights from JFK to Cartagena, and the airpot in Cartagena is only 15 to 20 minutes from the old city and the marina where the trips will begin. We can work with you to arrange airport transfers, recommend hotels and restaurants, and whatever else you may need while you're in town!
We can comfortably accommodate up to six guests in three double-bed cabins during each trip. We plan to make the trips five days long, although longer trips are available. If you have any questions or would like information on pricing, please send us an email to email@example.com.
See you in Colombia!
