Whether you’ve never stepped foot on a boat or like us you’re avid sailors we have the ultimate sailing adventure for you. This is a three legged trip – a choose your own adventure. You can come and join us for leg one, leg two, leg three, mix and match or join us for all of it!
Sometimes sailing is purely about relaxing and exploring with the focus on wining, dining and a little sailing between destinations. This trip however focuses more on sailing and adventure and is generally suited to those who have sailed previously. You will be expected to be an active participant in all areas of sailing and keeping the vessel in good condition, as well as cooking and cleaning. Of course once when we finish sailing each day, we will revert to our modus operandi of focusing on wining and dining.
Here we spend 6 days sailing along the south coast of the region of Andalusia, starting from Gibraltar and finishing up in Cartagena.

Leg Two starts with day sightseeing in the tiny country of Gibraltar. Meet the monkeys that have become synonymous with the country as you climb the iconic Rock. There are so many cultural places to visit and sights to see, so we recommend arriving early! That evening we’ll kick off this trip with a bang as we join up with the sailors from leg one.
We set sail in the morning from Gibraltar and follow the South Andalusian coastline eastwards towards the popular town of Malaga. Often underrated, Malaga has something for everything, the museum of Picasso, castles, shops and perhaps what it’s best known for… its beautiful sandy beaches!
Following this scenic route, we leave the lively Malaga for the lush green town of Montril. Taking in the crystal clear, passing hidden coves and charming fishing villages as we go. Framed with a backdrop of majestic mountains, Montril is simply majestic.
Next stop is the historical town of Almeria, this lesser known Spanish town has some magnificent sights to see including the Alcazaba of Almeria – a 10th century fortress, the 15th century Cathedral, not to mention the restaurants ready to ply you with tapas and sangria galore.
This coastline never gets old! Soak up the peace and calm of the South Coast of Spain on our last day of sailing leg two. Marvel at the beauty of the Atlantic estuaries, stunning seaside towns, impressive coastal cliffs and we might even pass a few coastal castillos. Arriving into the city of Cartagena late afternoon, we’ll see out our last evening in style.
The best option is to fly into the airport of Gibraltar. You can fly from most airports in the UK. Gibraltar also has great connections across Europe.
From the airport there are two options to get to the marina its a 5 minute taxi ride or a 15 minute walk. You’re bound to be on the same flight as a host of other people, so don’t worry too much about the transfers until closer to your arrival.
The best airport to fly from is Corvera. From Cartagena port to Corvera Airport you can get there by bus which costs €8.50 and takes 45 mins or taxi which takes 25 mins and costs €10 Euros per person.
