Flotilla sailing is a fun way to gain charter experience and make new friends with common interests. Sail away with us and discover the uniquely rich palette of colors, sights, flavors and smells that are so typical of Seychelles.
Put this destination on your to-do list for 2021 when we will sail the Seychelles archipelago from October 23 to October 30. Book this trip now to make sure you don’t miss out.
Known as the Garden of Eden Islands because they are so pristine with a fascinating nature, it was only logical that we would take our sailing friends with us to explore one of the last unspoiled and pristine spots on our planet. Imagine a mixture of Tahiti and the BVI before both places were overrun by tourists.
Seychelles Flotilla Leader
Capt. Jean and “Admiral” Mila used to own the charter company and sailing school, Yachting Vacations, in Punta Gorda, Florida.

Jean and Mila have been leading ASA flotillas in Croatia for the past 10 years and in Spain, and currently Italy and Montenegro.
Seychelles Flotilla Details
We will be sailing out of the port of Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles, and will be sailing on Lagoon 400, 440 and 450 catamarans. Our itinerary will go from Mahe, the main island, to Praslin (where the Coco de Mer nuts grow), Curieuse (home of the giant tortoises), La Digue (rock formations that compete in majesty with the Baths in the BVI), Felicite and Cocos islands (where you will swim with the sea turtles).
- Price starting at $2,150 per person.
- 50% deposit is required at time of booking. Credit card, check, Zelle and ACH are accepted.
- Flotilla fee covers your participation and includes a welcome cocktail and flotilla souvenir.
- Airfare, transfers, dinners on shore, hotels before and after the cruise are extra.
- A boat kitty on each yacht will cover the provisioning, mooring fees, when applicable, and refueling. This will amount to about $250.00/pp per week.
My husband and I have joined 3 flotillas and have found that Captain Jean’s experience as a sailor and his knowledge of the cruising waters along with “Admiral” Mila’s knack for finding the finest restaurants and interesting places to visit on shore makes Med Sailing Adventures a fantastic, one-of-a-kind vacation! We look forward to many more trips with them.

We have sailed with Jean and Mila on 2 separate occasions, both in, Croatia, and found them to be delightful people to be with on a sailing adventure. They know the sailing areas and islands extremely well, including hidden gems and restaurants on each island that you might not find on your own. They are well organized and do an excellent job of planning, yet remain flexible enough to take into account the desires of the group. We hope to take more sailing adventures with them in the future.

I thought the trip was an experience of a lifetime with opportunities to see new geography and to get to know nice and interesting folks. There were balanced occasions to sail and crew, all the while learning from experienced mariners. The luxurious boats that Med Sailing Adventures chartered were first class with more bells and whistles than one could image. Jean was very astute about the local culture and history. Of course, there were great pastries, pizzas, stuffed squashed blossoms, and wine ashore. Not to forget the water – it was crystal clear!

We went with Jean and Mila to Croatia on our first “Flotilla” several years ago. It was a superbly orchestrated event. The sailing was outstanding and the ports were spectacular. The trip gave some independence but was “group” enough for the novice Cruiser too! Jean was great “tour guide’ for the trip. We returned with Jean and Mila to Mallorca with the whole family, this trip too was outstanding! The culture, the food, The sailing! Zero knots overnight and builds to 15-18 by 3 PM. Great sailing! The Cala’s were beautiful!
