The cruise

Set sail for 2-4 days and discover the treasures of the Channel Islands.
The two day trip may include Alderney, the beautiful, rugged island at the north of the Channel Islands; Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue; or Tatihou island (the destination will depend on the tides).
For cruises lasting a minimum of 3 days, you'll have the opportunity to sail further south and explore the islands of Sark and Guernsey!

Your possible stops during this cruise

Leaving from Cherbourg, you will have 2, 3 or 4 days to explore, navigate and relax. Take a look at the calendar to see our next departures.
The following is a brief overview of the possible ports of call during this mini-cruise:
- Alderney, the untamed one: the most isolated of all the Channel Islands. It is a paradise for nature lovers due to its stunning landscapes and abundance of flora and fauna.
- Guernsey, the trendy one: this small, ideally-located island is the perfect spot for a cliff-top hike along trails bordered by wild flowers. They offer magnificent views of coves inaccessible on foot. You can also visit the Victorian town of St Peter Port, Europe's most beautiful port capital, with its narrow lanes, museums, pubs and distinctive local shops. Explore the house of Victor Hugo, who lived here for 15 years. Share in and relive his passion! He described the island as being "a rock of hospitality and freedom, an old parcel of Norman land fallen into the sea and gathered in by the English".
- Finally Herm and Sark, small islands with unforgettable places to moor. Leave the pressures of the modern world behind you.

The Cruise :Croisière fabuleuse avec une découverte de la navigation "tous vents et courants"! Paysages dignes de cartes postales !Du soleil ! Mélange de navigation et de découverte à pied des îles anglo- normandes. Dépaysement total , changement de repères, un autre rythme de vie ! Tout simplement magique !

The Skipper :Gérard est un skipper attentif, posé, discret, très professionnel, rassurant. Il a su nous proposer une croisière sur mesure et digne de nos attentes. Merveilleux !

(5/5)

The Cruise :Nous avons passé 3 jours entre Cherbourg, Aurigny et Guernesey. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le professionnalisme de Gérard qui a su adapter le parcours en fonction de la météo et du vent, tout en tenant au maximum compte de nos préférences. Nous avons également apprécié la réactivité de Skippair qui nous a organisé ces 3 jours en un temps record (4 jours avant le départ). Une belle initiation à la voile en mer, à refaire et à recommander sans hésiter !

The Skipper :Gérard nous a fait participer dès qu’il le pouvait dans la limite de nos (maigres) compétences, et a tout fait pour que nous passions de super mini-vacances (conseils sur les balades à faire, apéros dans les pubs ou sur le bateau, etc.).

We are pretty sure that...
