Sailing around the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean is at the top of many people’s travel bucket list.
With thousands of picturesque islands and crystal clear waters, it’s no wonder yacht and catamaran charters remain a favoured choice when it comes to exploring this part of the world.
For those looking for a tailored experience, Latitude Vacations offer a different way of cruising, letting travellers explore the Med aboard their own private charter vessel.
Latitude Vacations’ charter options range from yachts, catamarans, motor yachts and gulets, perfect for travelling in a ‘Covid safe bubble’ with friends or family, with fully staffed or bareboat charters for experienced yachties.
Their range of suggested itineraries across Turkey, Italy, Greece and Croatia are designed for flexibility, letting travellers explore at their own pace, be it discovering the Med’s world-famous architectural sites, finding hidden natural gems, or sampling world-class cuisine – all while enjoying the comfort of a luxury sailing experience.
For over 20 years, Latitude Vacations owners Geoffrey and Jane Hutton have been organising charters in the Mediterranean.
Geoffrey says there are many things that make this part of the world so special. “Corsica is one of our favourites and most surprising destinations, sailing into Bonifaccio with its high surrounding cliffs and town offers extraordinary vistas for photographic opportunities.”
If it’s island-hopping around Greece you’re dreaming of, he says there are so many options. “The Ionian islands, the Cyclades including Santorini and Mykonos, and of course beautiful Symi in the Dodecanese. All destinations offer swimming in clear, blue water, unsurpassed food and wine experiences, surprising and quiet bays and social opportunities with local people and other travellers.”
Many of the sailing trips can be combined with your own self-drive road trips, so travellers can explore areas like the mountains of Montenegro, charming villages of Slovenia and architectural wonders of the Turkish Coast.
One of the many benefits of travelling with Latitude Vacations is the personal attention from the experienced staff, who have been sailing in the Mediterranean for years.
In line with Covid-19 health and safety precautions, all vessels are deep cleaned between charters and all staff are fully vaccinated on crewed charters.
For a limited time, Latitude Vacations is offering 10-15% off charters departing in March and April 2022. Visit latitudevacations.com.au to book.
