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 the Mediterranean.
Turkey, the mysteries of the Levant! Pashas and harems, Whirling Dervishes, the Bosporus, ruins of antique Greek, Roman and Ephesians cities… the underground chapels and churches in Cappadocia? This country, on the crossroads of the East and the West can also pride itself on some of the nicest sailing waters in the Mediterranean and Med Sailing Adventures had to be there. Our flotillas will sail from Fethiye to Marmaris and back with visits to numerous antique sites, beautiful anchorages and typical Turkish fishing villages. The country is absolutely safe and has been discovered for some time by European tourists. Be one of the few to explore and sail these waters with us.

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.

Sailing the beautiful Croatian islands was fun and our hosts Jean and Mila were Amazing !!! Especially enjoyed the vineyard supper of roasted lamb on Vis.

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!
