Sailing with children

For young sailors, a holiday on a sailing yacht is usually a great adventure. Feeling like a great pirate on their own ship or exploring lonely islands and enchanted calas and caves make the trip an unforgettable holiday experience. If the skipper keeps the special interests of his little crew members in mind when planning the trip, the whole crew will get their money's worth. From our own sailing experiences with children, we have summarised the best tips for your family.

A child-friendly port of departure and destination

Nichts ist für Kinder so schlimm, wie stundenlang in der Sommerhitze auf den Check-in zu warten. Daher empfiehlt es sich, bei der Buchung nicht nur das richtige Schiff, sondern auch eine familienfreundliche Charterbasis auszuwählen. Unsere Charterbasis im Club Nàutic Arenal ist für Kinder die perfekte Marina, die keine Wünsche offen lässt. Die Zeit bis zum Check-in lässt sich im clubeigenen Pool oder am Strand angenehm verbringen und während das Proviant noch direkt ans Schiff geliefert wird, wird im Clubrestaurant schon etwas Leckeres für die hungrigen Mägen serviert. Alternativ können natürlich auch die Freizeitangebote der näheren Umgebung wie Windsurfen, ein großer Wassenrutschenpark und das Sea Life Center wahrgenommen werden.

The castle ruins of Cabrera make little pirates' hearts beat faster

An absolute highlight for little pirates is a trip to the Cabrera National Park. The island's eventful history alone stimulates the imagination and the view from the castle ruins down to your own yacht brings pirate stories to life. The silent nights on board, during which you can only recognise the other yachts at their buoys by their top lights, are also a special experience.

Bathing fun in Mallorca's calas

It has proven to be a good idea to plan shorter day trips with children and to allow enough time for swimming, snorkelling and stand-up paddling in the mornings and afternoons. Barbecues on deck in the evenings are also very popular. We will gladly provide you with the necessary equipment. From stand up paddles to snorkelling equipment and barbecues, you can order everything you need for swimming in Mallorca's calas. Just tell us what you need and your equipment will already be on board when you check in.

Little cave explorers in a big way

There are several exciting caves to explore on the east coast of Mallorca. Particularly popular are the

Coves d'Artà

Cova des Moro

Cova des Pirata

Coves dels Hams und

Coves del Drac

The latter can even be reached on foot from Porto Cristo harbour. Particularly impressive here is the largest underground lake in Europe, where a concert is given at the end of the cave tour. We think so: A real family highlight!

Flotilla sailing with other families

are also sailing - be it on their own yacht or catamaran or on neighbouring yachts. Flotilla sailing is therefore particularly popular with families.

Ahoy! We look forward to welcoming your young skippers!
