Cruising World magazine and King Yacht Charters organize small flotillas of top-quality charter yachts in interesting locations around the world. The trips include hotel stays, provisioning, special events, and, often, the air-fare cost from the United States. We always have a lead boat carrying both a skipper/guide, who has specific local knowledge of the sailing area, and a staff member from Cruising World. A daily chart briefing prepares you for the day's sail, alerting you to navigational hazards along the route and highlighting special lunch anchorages or sights.
You'll meet other like-minded adventurous sailors. Don't worry if you're unable to fill a boat yourself; we'll match you with other couples. Singles are always welcome and are a growing sector of our clientele. Nearly 50 percent of participants have sailed with us before, and they can attest to a Cruising World Adventure Charter as a great vacation.
