Your journey will be captained and crewed by a captain and chef who are trained professionals, who are explorers at heart, with unique experiences and sailing backgrounds offering a variety of information and life experiences to your journey. They will work with you to build a customized day to day itinerary that incorporates your unique group needs, interested, and desired activities.
Sailing on a beautiful 50+' modern sailboat, we will experience the dynamic and famous black-sand beaches, smoldering craters, rocky coastlines, and age old local villages in the most unique and versatile method. Anchor or take refuge on a pier in a local village during the evening, we get to explore all the seven islands with the comfort of our own sailboat.
Sailing Collective will provision your journey with local foods and produce. Cooking Aboard: Your Sailing Collective chef is incredibly talented and can handle the group's needs with ease. We are all about participation and learning, so if you'd like to help, just ask and we'll get you involved! Collective groups may choose to dine out more times than scheduled if the group or individuals choose.

The early Greeks called this place the islands of wind and fire, with active smouldering volcanoes and a dark and dramatic rocky landscape, these seven small islands north of Sicily stir up remarkable vigor with memories that stay with you for a lifetime. The Aeolian archipelago (islands) were designated as a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2000, since then, vacationers from all walks of earth have been experiencing what the locals have treasured for thousands of years. A Sailing Collective journey takes us to each of these dramatic jet-set playground on our own itinerary and leisure.
We start our sailing journey at Marina di Portorosa in the town of Tonnarella.

During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style.
