Malta Sailing & Rock Climbing

Sail & Climb the Maltese Islands

Join us for sailing and rock climbing in Malta

Malta is the perfect playground for sailing and rock climbing. Being a big piece of limestone thrown in the middle of the Mediterranean, half its coast is surrounded by high cliffs. It offers wonderful climbing in all grades of difficulty, and is almost always sunny in Spring. There are beautiful protected bays along the coast where we can drop the anchor and head to the neighbouring cliffs for an afternoon. We may even be able to climb right in view of our boat!

On this trip we will aim at a fair balance between sailing and climbing. Sailing days will be short (2 to 4 hours per day), so we can keep half our time for rock climbing. We will sail the boat every day to a new place, and climb on at least 4 different sites (depending on the preferences of the group, we can tip the balance towards either more sailing or more climbing). We will also keep some time ashore to discover the landscapes, villages and traditions of Malta (this trip will coincide with Easter, which is a huge traditional celebration on the island, with many religious processions).

No previous experience in either sailing or climbing is required. The skipper and rock climbing instructor will teach you all you need to know to sail the boat and take your first steps on the rocks. There’s lots for those with climbing experience too, with routes up to 8b, slabs, overhangs and deep water solo.

Malta

Situated at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, successively under the influence of the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Sicilians, Spanish, French, and British, Malta has evolved an absolutely unique culture. The Maltese language itself is a singular blend, a language of Semitic origin, but written in the Latin alphabet, with a huge influence of Sicilian, and a large stock of English loanwords. Besides Maltese, English is spoken very widely, although with a peculiar accent.

Malta is a country like no other, member of the European Union since 2004, and still with a very distinctive feel to the other European nations. It is a place where small corner-of-the-street shops have not yet been supplanted by chain supermarkets, where the elders still gather on a bench in the evenings, where the churches overflow on Sunday mornings, and where the towns rival in lavish fireworks for their traditional festa, yearly events celebrating the parish patron saint.

Everything is smaller here. The main island, Malta, is 28km by 13km, and the sister island Gozo only 14km by 7km. On these small rocks live more than 400,000 people. The first impression is one of an urban jungle, not one of modern concrete and glass and skyscrapers, but one of a jumble of flat roofs, local limestone and baroque churches, gripped in a maze of narrow streets almost constantly jammed with traffic. Yet, next to this chaotic urban sprawl, lives another Malta, made of a mosaic of miniature vegetable fields farmed by hand, dry garrigue sprinkled with carob and fig trees, and wild inaccessible sea cliffs where the only sounds are those of the waves and the cackling of the sea bird colonies.

Travelling by boat will allow us to navigate all these faces of the islands, drop anchor in remote bays, access the remote cliffs, or mingle in the traditional village markets and celebrations.

Rock climbing

Many of us have tried indoor climbing at some time. Climbing outdoor on real rock is a completely different experience. It is not only about challenging yourself to reach the top, practising control over your body or developing your strength and technique. It is just as much about spending a day in the nature, feeling the warmth of the rock in the sun, taking in the singing of the birds while belaying under a fig tree, and of course enjoying the 360 view from the top of the climb.

Both beginners and experienced climbers are welcome to join. We will climb in pairs, one climber and one belayer (who stays on the ground and secures the rope), and then swap. This way, every one can find a route at his/her level of difficulty, and it is absolutely safe. Beginners can try themselves at some easy slab climbs while experienced climbers can go for crazy overhangs.

We will teach you how to put on the harness, use the gear, make the knots, belay, and we will give you advice to develop your climbing technique. Depending on your level of experience and if time allows, you may also try some lead climbing or multi-pitches. We will also try climbing above the water (Deep Water Solo or Sea Level Traverse)!

After an afternoon out climbing, we will watch sunset from the top of the cliffs, and trail down to our floating home safely anchored in a protected bay for the night!

Malta and Gozo

Plunge into the rich blended culture of Malta and Gozo. We will start with a stroll through the beautiful fortified cities of Valletta and the ‘3 cities’, drop anchor by the fishing village of Marsaxlokk, and take part in the Maltese Easter celebrations.

Sailing

We will sail along the impressive cliffs of Malta and Gozo, pass by sea bird colonies and mysterious caves where the waves echo from far away. Enjoy the privilege of dropping anchor in a protected bay for the night. The only lights are those of the stars and the only sound is that of the wind.

Rock climbing

Learn to rock climb with a certified instructor, or challenge yourself if you are already an experienced climber. Master your fear, reach the top and from there try to spot our yacht!

Malta Sailing & Climbing Highlights

What you can expect to do on this route.

Malta Sail and Climb Sailing Itinerary

We are true to the discoverers’ spirit and plan our adventures accordingly to the winds, the weather and your wishes. This means the order as well as some of stopovers may be different than presented below. Leave planning at home! The plan showed below is only an indicative itinerary and your trip may differ. Only the mad ones sail against the wind!

Valletta

The world famous fortified capital was built by the Knights of Malta following the Great Siege and mostly completed in just 5 years between 1566 and 1571. On a high peninsula surrounded by the sea, it is encircled by deep ditches and high walls, making it virtually impregnable. We’ll sneak ourselves through the main gate, take a peak from the Upper Baraka Gardens at our yacht in the harbour down below, walk down Republic street and take in the charm of the city.

 

Comino

Comino is the little sister island of Malta and Gozo. Currently it is only permanently inhabited by a single family, but in the past it was variably used as a prison, a quarantine hospital, and even recently as a pig farm, the remains of which can still be seen. Comino is especially famous for its massively overcrowded ‘Blue Lagoon’ that we will avoid at all costs during daytime. If the wind allows we would rather anchor in Santa Maria bay and take a hike to the Blue Lagoon after all tourists are gone!

 

Dwejra

Dwejra was the site of the famous ‘Azure Window’ which unexpectedly collapsed in March 2017 (those who came too late to witness it standing are advised to rewatch the first season of Games of Thrones). If we unfortunately cannot climb on it any more, we can instead scale one of the many easy traditional routes over the Inland Sea (a salt water lagoon connected to the sea by a narrow cave opening). A perfect place to take a swim after the climbing!

 

Wied Babu

Wied Babu (Wied is the Maltese name for a dry valley) is the best site in Malta for learning to climb. There are many easy routes on the eastern side of this beautiful valley, as well as challenging overhangs on the western side, so there’ll be something for every climber!

 

Mġarr Ix-Xini

This is the ultimate hidden climbing valley! You can’t reach it unless you know the way. Find the secret passage, through stairs carved in the rock, or through the bamboo jungle. Belay your climbing partner in the shade of a fig tree, listening to the birds. There are many easy routes here, as well as impressive overhangs!

 

Mistra

Mistra is one of these places where we can anchor our yacht and go climbing right next to it! We will try some SLT, alias ‘Sea Level Traverse’, a kind of climbing where one climbs laterally above the water at no more than a few meters high. The aim of the game is to climb as far as possible, we’ll see who reaches furthest!

 

Marsaxlokk

Nested at the head of a large bay, Marsaxlokk is probably the most difficult town to spell and pronounce in the whole Mediterranean. It’s also a colourful harbour filled with the blues, yellows and greens of the many traditional Maltese fishing boats (Luzzu). The design of the Luzzu may date back to Phoenician times, and possibly as a legacy, they are often painted with a pair of eyes on their bow. Marsaxlokk is the main traditional fishing harbour in Malta, and is famous for its Sunday morning fish market.

 

 

 

Keep the connection

Day 8 is the day to say goodbye. All the miles sailed, routes climbed, skills gained and time shared with others will make you bond and build relationships. Cherish these, keep in touch and remember that the Naleia Sailing family is there. See you another time!

3rd time with Naleia - this time in my dream destination of Seychelles -and definitely not the last one! Naleia is not just another "sailing tour agency" but a community of like-minded people. Sailing with Naleia you get a chance of becoming a part of the crew and can learn from experienced skippers but also relax and explore your destination. Looking forward to the next trip!
My first sailing experience with Naleia was in the Seychelles and totally lived up to expectations. Great skipper (Gertjan), we got the sails up as much as the weather permitted, good chances to explore some of the islands from the sea and on land, easy going crew members and helpful information provided prior to starting the trip. Will definitely consider another trip in the future.
I came with curiosity and left with amazement 🤩. Our trip from the Mediterranean to Teneriffa surprised me with a warm welcome, the most fantastic people & an outstanding time on the water 🐬 🌟 🌊 👌. Sailing trips with Naleia are much morethan what I could put into words - thanks Dominik for this perfectly well organized Atlantic adventure ❤️❤️❤️ I would go again @ any time!!!!
Hadde en fantastisk uke med seiling i Kroatia. Absolutt til å anbefale både for nybegynnere og erfarne
I'm with Naleia since the very beginning.Sailing with them is, by far, my best holiday and sailing experience ever!You have to try it!
So far I have been on two trips with Naleia, one to Sicily in 2020 and one to Greece in 2022, and both were wonderful experiences. Naleia is not just some sailing holidays, but has its own spirit with interesting and kind people from all over the world, a dedicated owner, experienced and fun skippers and tons of fantastic memories: dolphins jumping, amazing sunsets, shooting stars, snorkeling with bioluminescent plankton, watching volcanoes, swimming under a rainbow...and of course a lot of fun sailing and learning more about it every time. Please continue with this amazing and unique portfolio!
Montenegro sailing trip with Naleia - Sep.22Pros : amazing and dedicated skippers (Edda is obviously the best 😉 ), great people, sailing learning, wounderful places.Cons : ... I lost at a darts game ?I had no previous sailing experience, just wanted to give it a try, my intention was also getting out of my comfort zone by living on a boat with unkown people during 7 days in a row ... it's a fail ! I've just found a new one, a better one !Thanks to Dominik and the Naleians, I feel so grateful for just being part of the trip; meet inpiring people, sail, learn, relax, eat, drink, share and enjoy !It's just the beginning for me, see you !
fantastic sailing experience!It is not only about sailing and learning but as well meeting great people and making new friends we keep meeting overtime!Well done Dominik! what you created is very unique and I believe we all value what you managed to do!
Amazing trips and amazing staff. Will definately go on many more trips with them. You will visit beautiful island, bays and places no matter where you go, learn how to sail and meet great people. At a fair price!
Had a great time sailing in Sardinia, great crew, excellent skippers, really good sailing. Like my previous sail with Naleia, learnt a lot and had a great time. Saw some nice places, swam a lot, enjoyed excellent food. Cannot recommend it enough for a thoroughly enjoyable week, definitely one of the best things I have done on my holidays!
I have sailed with Naleia in 2015 in Croatia from Makarska to Dubrovnik with team of international very friendly, open minded people I have never seen before. It was one of the best experiences I have made in my life. The trip was a very nice mix of well prepared points and free space for improvisation. Actually I wanted to join already in 2014, but due to my marriage, I had to skip it for a year... If I knew how good would it be, probably I had the wedding shifted 😉
What a great vibe, skilled and easy going skippers, good mix of people (age, origin etc.), sailing but also discovering towns, nature, swimming, snorkling...
An amazing life changing experience. Everyone in the community wants to learn how to sail and improve while sharing food and stories.Don't expect to do nothing and relax, you will be experiencing sailing first hand in a safe environment.
Fantastic trip. Can't wait to go again.
Naleia organizes amazing sailing holidays with like minded people. It's like going on holidays with life long friends. Good skippers, happy crews, great destinations.
I had a great time sailing in the Greek Cyclades with Naleia. Relaxed atmosphere on board. Lots of opportunities to get involved in sailing. The itinerary was also built around the interests of the crew. I would book with them again.
I had a great week sailing the Aeolian Islands with Naleia - volcanoes, undersea fumaroles, bioluminescent plankton, snorkeling, sunrises and sunsets, dolphins, excellent sailing. Just fantastic. Awesome experience, could not recommend it more.
I had an incredible week sailing the aeolian islands with Naleia. Snorkeling in beautiful bays with black sanded beaches, glowing Plankton at night, dining at the erupting Stromboli and dolphins jumping at sunrise- couldn’t have wished for more overflowing impressions in that week. Our skippers Dominic and Marc just added the extra top of sweetness with their empathic and fun personalities and professional skipper skills. Those few days where we had enough wind were beautiful and I felt super safe with our skippers teaching us about sailing. It was a great group experience as well since all fellow Naleians made up a lovely crew! I can absolutely recommend sailing with Naleia.
well run smallish organisation that attracts customers (from all over the world) who tend to be more interesting people to meet compared to most other crews one finds on charters that are of mostly only one nationaliity. Interesting itineraries, fun activities, excellent professional skippers who manage to convey a lot of theoretical and practical skills to the crews, and overall excellent value for money
nice blog
After my first experience in Brittany with Naleia I immediately got the 'love the sailing' virus! I managed to fight my see sickness and got back on board only few months later for a new great adventure in Greece.. a healthy cure against stress and bad thoughts, it takes out the best of you and gives you a quite unforgettable experience, together with a bunch of amazing new friends!!!
A great experience! You can learn a lot about sailing, but you can also chill, meet fun people and experienced skippers... good food, amazing views, dolphins, laughs.. what more?
10/10, pure Transcendence
Amazing organisation which gives you the "it's great to be alive" feeling where ever you travel. Skilled and fun skippers / organizers and wonderful co travelers to make friendships for life.

Very well organized trips with very charismatic skippers and diverse and open-minded fellow travelers.Very eco-minded.Traveling with Naleia made me more aware of how much plastic waste I generate and how important it is to reduce it.
Good planning, nice execution and an adaptable skipper. Couldn't have asked for more on my first sail trip. Cheers Dominik.
This year was the second time I sailed with Naleia and I cannot think of a better way to spend my vacation. Friendly international atmosphere, great professional skippers who not only teach you real sailing but also magically turn people who have just met into real crew 🙂 we spend time learning all the sailing jobs, having fun, sharing stories, cooking together, looking at the stars, exploring local land and sharing our common love for sea. Even if you never ever sailed before (which was my case), Naleia travel is a great way to enjoy it and actually learn a lot.Thanks Naleia & Dominik for the greatest week of my summer! I am definitely coming back next season. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

We had a great trip to Brittany with Naleia. It was my first sailing trip, so I learned a lot about sailing and practiced different yachting modes. I also enjoyed amazing views (especially on Houat island) and ate lots of tasty crepes with cider! Overall, life-changing experience!
Had an amazing experience crossing the Channel from Southampton to the Channel Islands with Naleia. The trip in an advanced tidal area was very well organised and prepared. The competent skipper involved everyone as much as wanted in all planing and execution and guided the crew to improve their sailing skills. Had a very fun week with good people sharing the passion for sailing. Good concept, good vibes. For sure not my last trip!! Thanks 💙
This last trip to Norway was my third sail with Naleia Yachting and the trips and destinations just keep getting better. The off the beaten paths adventures, hikes, enjoyable and challenging sailing opportunities are not to be missed. Domenic and gang are professional, well-organised and bring their own personalities and ways to conducting their sails. A great experience thus far and looking forward to many more fun explorations.
Naleia is perfect. The skippers are professional and competent, yet fun loving and eager to ensure their crew have a fabulous holiday.
Naleia is friendly, inclusive, environmentally friendly and genuinely care about the oceans they sail in.
Thank you for our 4th trip with you.
Many thanks to Naleia for organising this great week around Malta and Sicily, the balance between sailing and visits on the ground was perfect to discover a piece of each island. A particular big up to Nico for being a fantastic almost local guide, musician and skipper always understanding and putting security and navigation theory as a priority. Great experience!
Naleia travel is original, amazing prices and great fun. For real explorers 😉 I can highly recommend them and hopefully I can join one of the next sailing trips as well!!!
Naleia is awesome for everyone who enjoys traveling and a little adventure. I've been on the first trip to Croatia and it is great to see how far Naleia has come since. There is a variety of routes, I like the idea of social deposit scheme and it always attracts nice lovely people to share the trip with. Skippers are top notch and you will be able to balance learning how to sail with a few relaxing days at the sea with all it's joys. I'm now on the way to Thailand trip and can't wait to start
I did the "Safe Haven Sailing Course" with Dominic which was incredibly insightful and fun. Dom was keen on teaching as much as possibly within our week, and for me, that's exactly what I was looking for. We did theory around breakfast, sailed and maneuvered during day and sometimes into the night. Excellent opportunity to get practical on the yacht. Cool crew. Would and will do it again!
I usually fly solo when traveling, and it never occurred to me to sign up for a package tour. But I took a gamble here and Naleia exceeded my expectations. They have somehow figured out how to get adults to buy into a sincere spirit of group adventure and camaraderie without it ever feeling forced. And obviously, the locations are beautiful, the other people are engaging, the sailing is fun (you'll grow in confidence throughout the week), and it's clear that the Dominick and his team really care about the experience they are creating. You can easily do this trip alone, with friends, or with your significant other. I'm sure I'll sail with them again.
Great experience ! Wonderful moments ....

Very efficient organisation and friendly communication in the run up to the trip. All questions were covered. The trip itself was absolutely awesome! Sardinia and Corsica are stunning locations with great winds for thrilling sailing! Nico knew the best locations to take us and provided clear and enthusiastic instruction on how to sail for novice sailors, like me, who were keen to learn the mechanics behind sailing. I had the best time, thank you!
I'll be back! 🙂
Stop thinking about sailing with Naleia... and just book it. You’ll love it!Your fellow crew members are a wonderful bunch – and we had the most laid-back skipper ever to roam the Med. The scenery is amazing and varied: you’ll moor-up in a port one night amongst super-yachts then drop anchor the following night in a nearly-deserted bay. You’ll learn so much if you’ve never sailed before, but it’s all really relaxed.I’m so glad I took the plunge – you will be too.Maybe see you out there one day soon...
Dominik has an amazingly ability to make everyone feel included and have a great time while also teaching new skills. But the best part is that people grow and learn new skills for life and learn things about themselves without even knowing. I’m already booked on another trip and have made new connections with people that I know will be friends for life. Thank you all.
Well organised trip, with Dominik competently answering all questions before the trip. Skipper Nico with endless patience to teach the basics of sailing to complete Newbies - I'll be back!
was an excellent experience again sailing with Naleia! amazing people in a beautiful place and exceptional wild life! thanks Dominik for organising that trip.
Looking forward to the next trip!
Loved the sailing trip to Azores.Dominik and the crew were amazing!We had a beautiful experience whalewatching and learning the basics of sailing.I'll definitely sail with Naleia again!! 🙂
Having done the 'Same Same' tour in Thailand. It was one of the most amazing experiences we had. The snorkeling was beautifull and we saw so many fishes and coral. The group of people we were with was great and spending time with experienced skippers we learned a lot about sailing. I highly reccomend it.

One tip, do bring your seasick pills if you are sensitive to that. You don't want to recover from your seasickness while the rest of us is swiming in bioluminescent glow in the dark plankton and having an amazing time ;).

Cheers, Marga and Joao

A great way to meet new people in a fun and easy to learn environment. I did a sailing charter with Naleia in the Cyclades and we had an amazing time. I was very lucky to have a crew of my own frame of mind; not shy of being themselves, open and honest, musical and fun! This sort of packaged deal was completely new for me; I'm normally a budget backpacker, but this didn't fail to disappoint with everything from surfing with dolphins under sail to quad biking around the springladen fields of Naxos.
The prospect of cooking was daunting but in hindsight a fun teambuilding routine. Nico our skipper was very professional and cool headed, with great communication and a tailored trip to the preferences of the crew (plus a great guy to hang out with socially which makes a big difference).
Definately look forward to sailing again with Naleia at some point!
As a Newbie sailor I was a little concerned about joining a crew. However I need not have worried. Niko the Skipper was very kind and understanding and I soon fitted in to the crew. The sailing was wonderful and even the motor sailing had its good points. The food on board (provided enthusiastically by the other crew members, my skill is in the cleaning and washing up) was excellent as was the weather. I learned a great deal and it was good to visit Greece again after many years. A bit sad to see how tourism has taken over but my previous visit was in the 70's. I would thoroughly recommend Naleia.
I had such a great trip with Naleia! My friends and I sailed in Thailand with them. It was wonderful. Our skippers Marc and Nico are the friendliest, most fun and professional people. Being on a boat for 10 days is an intense experience, exciting and deeply relaxing at the same time!

Sailing is such a gentle way of traveling, you have to be in tune with nature. Our skippers managed to avoid most mass tourism by arriving at our destinations for the night just when everyone else was leaving. This meant that we had the most beautiful islands to ourselves. Thailand is such beautiful country and the islands we discovered were absolutely stunning. I especially loved snorkeling in Ko Ha.

On top of all the wonderful experiences we learned about sailing. Hoisting the main sail, standing at the helm, doing tacks, ankering etc are all very empowering experiences!

I absolutely loved the trip and am planning to go on other trips with Naleia!
Great sailing experience.. well not too much wind in the Seychelles in February but still an awesome trip! And Nico's a 5 star skipper 🙂
I have travelled in three occasions with Naleia (destinations: Croatia and Sicily) and it has always been a wonderful experience.
All the details are well arranged, while leaving room for improvisation and adventure, as the skippers trace the best route according to winds and spots around. You’ll be part of the crew and learn sailing (it’s perfectly ok if you don’t have a clue 🙂
Incredible landscapes, interesting chats, games, nice villages, azure waters, swimming, snorkeling, relaxing, cooking improvisation and lots lots of fun!!
Amazing sailing trips with the best people from all over the world, and best destinations. If you like sailing don't think twice!
I definitely recommend travelling with them and for sure I’ll do it again.
Sailing with Naleia is an unforgettable experience!
Dominik and the entire crew at Naleia Yachting are a quality operation. I had the most wonderful sailing vacation with a variety of fellow adventurers from around the globe on our 'Out and About' cruise in Croatia in the beginning of September. Dominik did a great job pairing solo, group, and couple travelers together (a good range of nationalities, ages 27-78 with most falling in their 30's and early 40's) across the three boats in our flotilla. Not to mention choosing our fantastic route around the islands off the coast of Croatia (Split, Trogir, Hvar, Korcula) as well as the small, off-the-beaten-path bays, swimming stops and restaurants for our group to enjoy the mediterranean without a constant onslaught of tourists.If you're looking for a vacation just to sit in the sun on a boat and drink all day with people in their 20's, look elsewhere. However, for those looking to relax while also having the benefit of actually doing the (fun!) work to sail the boat, shopping for your own food and cooking on board, learning from others, and not doing the typical 'touristy' thing, then this is definitely the trip for you. It was an intimate adventure experience in a new place that made me fall in love with sailing even more, as well as appreciate my surroundings in a new way while thoroughly enjoying the company of my fellow crew.
I had the best time in Croatia. If you ever had the thought to try sailing, I can thoroughly recommend Naleia! The organisation is superb, the people are warm and open and you will learn much more than just the sailing itself. Personal highlights include spotting dolphins, feeling us come together as a team, swimming in deep blue waters and enjoying local restaurants in remote locations accessible by the sea.
I just went to Croatia with Naleia and I can honestly say it was the best vacation I've ever had. It was the perfect mixture of adventure and relaxation. Dominik and Marc were fantastic skippers, and yacht life is the best life! Equally as important is the community that Naleia cultivates, we traveled with a great group of diverse people who were interesting, easygoing, and fun to spend time with. I will definitely be sailing with the Naleia crew again soon.
I joined the Croatia Sunset Route with Naleia having never sailed in my life before and finished as a competent crew member of a fun and international team of new friends. I’d thought about joining a party cruise and seeing some beautiful scenery along the way but the connection with nature and the flexibility of being on two small yachts was so much better as we were able to visit tiny local villages and go swimming and snorkelling in bays that would have been inaccessible otherwise.Learning to sail – great!Making new international friends – great!Flexible personalised routes - great!Professional organisation – great!Beautiful Croatian scenery – great!

I went on a trip to Croatia having never sailed before and couldn't have had a more positive experience. The skippers were friendly and happy to teach, the boat quickly became a team and a lot of thought was put into the program of the day! Highly recommended for anyone looking for an adventure on the high seas with a great bunch of people.
A friend of me told me about Naleia. I've booked a trip in Greece this summer and it was really amazing! Great organizazion, the competent skipper will teach you how to sail and there is no problem if you don't have experience with that. We have visited a lot of beautiful bays, and harbours around the greek islands. It was definetly not my last trip! Hope to meet you as soon as possible again! 🙂
I went on a week trip in Greece, and would definitely recommend sailing with Naleia! Great organization, very kind, fun and interesting people, and amazing places.Personally, it was quite a different travel experience, which I welcomed since that was what I was looking for.Also, you don't need previous sailing experience. Learning is really fun!It was great, I'm looking forward to doing it again!
Went on a trip with Naleia in Greece - organisation was without a hitch, staff was excellent, my fellow travellers were all lovely open-minded people; can't think of a single criticism for the entire experience!Went once, would definitely go again! There aren't many better ways to spend a vacation!Also, no sailing (or even swimming!) experience necessary.Pictured are some of the lovely places we visited - all yours to experience and just a sailing trip away :)!
Ihr sucht nach einem tollen Urlaub auf den sieben Weltmeeren?Hier seid ihr genau richtig.Sucht euch euer Ziel aus und ihr werdet Spass haben.Die Teilnehmer sind offen und idr unkompliziert.Das nötige know-how zur Schiff-steuern wird euch vom erfahrenen Skipper beigebracht!Nebst dem Leben auf einer Yacht steuert ihr coole Häfen und noch coolere Buchten oder Reservate an!Wer sich dem Wasser und Natur verbunden fühlt, dem kann ich nur Anraten, es auszuprobieren!
Congratulations if you decided to go on a Naleia Yachting trip!
This is one of the most awesome ways to spend a hollidays and discover a country with another point of view. Life on the islands will make you experience for example the slowness of time, the saltyness of the seas, the tastyness of freshly cooked food, the lovelyness of lasting friendships, and the cozyness of spending time in the tiny boat quarters. The organisation is professional, yet flexible. Highly recommended! Hope to be able to join again in the coming years
Stunning Croation backdrop, incredible Captain (Dominik) so many laughs and good times. I learnt the sailing basics and would happily go back for more. The experience stays with you long after you leave the boat...book now!
This company is great example of people who try to make life better. If you are tired of your present life and feel depressed want to change something or just have some free time to re-charge your battery You cannot find better people to help you. Sailing is most grateful thing on earth with helps to serve many problems and those guys and girls are one of the best in Europe
You don't have to be a natural born sailor or the biggest daredevil to go on a Naleia trip. If you're in for a week of amazing nature, breathtaking landscapes, unexpected encounters with people from different countries and backgrounds, and lots of good vibes and fun, this is your kind of sailing trip. Let Naleia take care of it, they know all about it.
2014 I went sailing with Naleia to Croatia. One of the best thing I have ever done in my life. 7 days of sailing was magical. We steered our yacht against turbulent waves with laughter, energy and joy. Every afternoon after a good day of sailing it was time to embrace the waves personally by diving in the sea. When we finally reached a shore in the evening, the fun just got started. Crazy parties, innovative games and finger licking food were on the menu every evening. After 7 days of total madness Naleians became family, Croatia became home and the sea became a friend. I realise how essential this trip was for me to disconnect from work stress and come back to daily life with exuberance. Thanks Naleia for an experience of lifetime.
I have had two beautiful holidays, we have visit beautiful places in Croatia. the sailing conditions were great and with the mixed international group there was always a nice vibe on board when we visited the small villages. the experienced skippers were benevolent to learn us to sail and gave me a safe feeling on board I would definitely recommend to sail with Naleia.
It is an amazing experience every time. Every time to open a new something. Meet new people or to meet old friends. And of course, the sea. Sail on a yacht or to spend the night in the sea anchor, prepare breakfast or lunch on the boat it thrills. It becomes part of your life. Part of you. I am very grateful to Dominic and to all who help to organize a trip to all who participate in it. This requires courage and an open heart. See you on board.
