The Azores are a great cruising ground with everything from steep rising majestic volcanos to sleepy little fishing villages

Located in the middle of the Atlantic, at the meeting place of the European, American and African tectonic plates, the Azores archipelago is made up of nine islands, gathered into three distinct groups. The Eastern Group, formed by the islands of Sao Miguel and Santa Maria. The Central Group, made up of the islands of Faial, Pico, Sao Jorge, Terceira and Graciosa. And lastly the Western Group of Flores and Corvo

We have an unrivalled selection of boats available for you to charter in the Azores available from our bases; Horta on Faial; Ponta Delgada on Sao Miguel and Angra do Heroismo on Terceira

Azores Charters

Three of the islands; Graciosa, Flores and Corvo have been designated as biospheres by UNESCO, the archipelago also contains thirteen important wetland sites and over thirty Blue Flag beaches

This is a world of fumaroles, mudpots and scalding springs; of caverns, columns and grottoes formed from once molten rock; of blue lakes ringed by forests of laurel and cedar, and green pastures patterning the slopes of volcanic craters

Horta Harbour and Marina

The advisable sailing window in the Azores is from late March to October. The islands have great climatic conditions, with mild temperatures, due to the influence of the Gulf Stream. The winter average is 13C rising to 23C in summer. Water temperature remains between 18C and 24C

On a one week charter you will probably sail between the islands of the Central Group; Faial, Sao Jorge, Pico, Terceira and Graciosa

A two week charter enables you to sail between the islands of the Central Group and another group of islands. Either those to the east; Sao Miguel and Santa Maria. Or the west; Flores and Corvo

To explore the whole archipelago, all three island groups, we suggest a three week charter
