The Stockholm Archipelago is the summer playground of sea-going and nature loving Swedes, offering hiking, biking, swimming and our course amazing sailing!

Spend your days
sailing through small channels before heading ashore to explore on foot.
You are free to roam the countryside, swim in lakes and forage for incredible food.

Why Mariner Boating Holidays?

Small group comfort
You’ll sail in comfort as part of a small group of yachts, sometimes called a Flotilla or Yacht Rally. The maximum group size is 24 people but usually you'll be sailing with 16-20 people across 3 or 4 yachts.

More time to explore
Our tours give you more time to immerse yourself and really get a feel for the destination. Our trips also include more leisure days where you can choose how to spend your day!

Flexible joining options
Our trips are designed so that everyone can sail with us - single travellers, couples or larger groups/families! For 1 or 2 people we offer the option of booking a cabin (max 8 guests plus a professional skipper on the yacht), whilst groups and families can book the whole yacht for themselves.

30+ years of experience
We've been doing this awhile and tend to know a secret spot or two. We know you want to visit the main sights (and why wouldn't you!), but we also love to share our favourite spots you might not find otherwise.

Your guides
A Mariner Boating guide and a local technician will travel with you to assist with the yachts, berthing, provide navigational support and have intimate local knowledge of things to see and do along the way.

Your travelling companions
Every group is different, but typically you’ll find your co-travellers will be aged between 40 and 65, enjoy keeping active, love the ocean, have a sense of adventure, love fine foods, an occasional glass of wine, and a good chat.

Is this trip right for me?

Do I need to know how to sail?
Absolutely not - the only "qualification" for joining our sailing tours is a desire to see yourself on the deck of a sailboat in one of the great travelling destinations of the world

That being said, if you wish to book a whole yacht you will need to either have International Certificate of Competence (ICC) or organise a professional skipper.

Will I have my own bathroom?

While vessel layouts will vary depending on which yacht you choose, most yachts generally have cabins with a private bathroom attached or just outside.

If you book a cabin we will always guarantee a private bathroom, but if travelling as a group on your own yacht you may need to share.

What's life on board like?
Our yachts are modern and comfortable with areas to relax both below and on deck. Most yachts have 4 double cabins and are usually less than 5 years old. Below deck you will find the kitchen (galley) where you can prepare meals with the option to dine at the adjacent table or on deck in the open air.

So throw down a cushion, curl up and read a book, or make use of the easy access to the water for a swim.

Will I get seasick?
Sea legs come naturally to some but unfortunately not so much for others. Your Mariner Boating guide will be able to suggest some options to help you with the effects of sea sickness if needed. The majority of this trip is on a yacht though so you will need to feel comfortable moving about the vessel, including using the stairs to get to cabins etc. below deck.
