Sailing With Kids

While many of our guests opt for an adult only vacation, our catamarans are always welcoming to making sailing a family affair. Our all-inclusive packages, planned excursions, and worry-free vacation itinerary allow for a relaxing family vacation!

At Festiva Sailing Vacations, we want to make sure you have an amazing vacation and create life long memories with both our family and yours. However, enjoying your time on the open water and navigating through our boats does come with a few rules for those traveling with children.

Age Restrictions

For families wanting to travel with children under the age of 16, we ask that you book a full boat to accommodate your group. This allows your family to spend the entire week uninterrupted, with the boat all to yourself, and for our other travelers to enjoy the style of sailing vacation they desire. If you’re traveling with children 16 and over, there are no full boat booking requirements, but please keep in mind each of our cabins accommodates only two guests. You’ll want to plan accordingly for the number in your party.

Life Vests

The safety of all our guests aboard is always of the utmost importance. While sailing with younger children, it’s important to keep in mind that we do not have child size life vest’s on board. For peace of mind, we recommend renting them for the week for any young children. For suggestions on who to rent life vests through, please reach out to us.

Flexibility

We want every passenger to enjoy their sailing experience. At Festiva Sailing Vacations, our crews pride themselves on preparing gourmet meals and meeting the needs of all palates, even those of younger ages. Let us know on your preference forms if you have children coming along and how we can better fit their food wish lists.

With our full boat family bookings, comes flexibility within our typical day to day itinerary. Without any outside party passengers, we can tailor your excursions and docking points to make them more family friendly and include something for all ages.
