The crew has its own cabin with en-suite shower room.
Sarah and Kevin will meet you at 10:30 at a café in Praia da Victoria. You will get to know the other passengers and attend a quick briefing before going on the boat. After checking out your cabin, you will be able to explore every corner of the boat. You will have lunch and cast off to set sail for Cabras. This island is perfect for playing the game of adventurers in the caves that served as pirate hideouts, or paddling along the steep cliffs. The crew will take you to spend the evening in Angra do Heroismo, a historic city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dinner is free.
DAY 2: Angra do Heroismo - Velas (São Jorge) (about 35 nautical miles)
Breakfast, then departure to the dizzying island of São Jorge. Its elongated shape and its numerous fajäs (flat geological formations advancing into the ocean) make it easily distinguishable from the others. Indeed, it is 54 km long and barely 6.9 km wide and has no less than 70 fajäs. Take advantage of this crossing to familiarize yourself with nautical terms, take part in the maneuvers, or take a nap on the deck. You may also have the chance to see dolphins, whales, or other marine mammals. At the end of the day, you will anchor on the southern coast of São Jorge. Dinner at your leisure.
DAY 3: Velas (São Jorge)
Why not start the day by watching the sunrise over the sunrise? You will have this opportunity during your stop at Velas. Take your free time to visit a local village nestled at the foot of a mountain. You will discover an elegant and soothing public garden, but also Igreja Matriz, the island's mother church built in the 15th century. The crew will advise you what to do according to your desires. We can also arrange a car rental in advance if you wish. Dinner is free.
DAY 4: Velas - Horta (Faial) (about 20 nautical miles)
You set sail again in the morning for Faial. You will drop anchor in the south-east of the island in the very colourful Horta marina, the meeting point for yachtsmen crossing the Atlantic. It is also known for its open-air "art gallery" which collects paintings left by the crews for good luck. At the end of the day, you will have an aperitif at Peters, a cosy cafe that serves as a landmark for all passing sailors. Dinner at your leisure.
DAY 5 : Horta - Pico (about 25 nautical miles)
Your journey continues to Pico Island. To reach it, you will pass through the Faial canal (which connects Horta to Madalena). You will then walk along the south coast of the island and admire Mount Pico. It is 2351 meters high, making it the highest mountain in the Azores and Portugal. Along the way, you may encounter turtles, dolphins and sperm whales. Indeed, the southern coast is home to some twenty species of cetaceans. You will end the day in Lajes do Pico, a former whaling centre where you will find a museum retracing the history of the whalers. Dinner is free.
DAY 6 : Pico (about 25 nautical miles)
On this day, you will discover Pico and its volcano. Its volcanic rock and black lava flows have earned it the nickname "the black island". It is no less fertile for its many flowers and endemic plants (azaleas, dragon trees, fig trees, etc.). Its hiking trails will take you between the sea and the mountains in the middle of breathtaking nature. Renting a car could also be a good solution if you want to travel a longer distance. Sarah and Kevin will be able to provide you with a roadmap. Lunch at your leisure. Dinner on board.
DAY 7: Pico - Terceira (about 60 nautical miles)
You hoist the sails and begin your return journey. Don't hesitate to ask Sarah and Kevin to learn more about sailing. They will be delighted to share their passion with you. If weather permits you will stop in a quiet bay for lunch and will watch dolphins and whales (not guaranteed). Enjoy the sunset from the deck of the boat on this last evening. The crew suggests that you end this beautiful cruise in style by dining together in a local restaurant (not included in the price).
DAY 8: Praia da Vitoria (Terceira)
You will disembark at Praia da Vitoria marina after breakfast at around 10:30 am.

C’est parfait 💖

Nous avons découvert grâce à SARAH & KEVIN un mode de vie totalement différent du nôtre. Dépaysement total à bord de LET’S SEA: paysages à couper le souffle, la compagnie des dauphins lors des traversées, petits déjeuners et brunchs à bord avec des produits locaux … Initiation à la navigation, …baignades du ponton, visites des îles réussies grâce aux bons plans de SARAH & KEVIN.
LET’S SEA: voilier splendide de 14 mètres, neuf et très confortable, rendant la navigation encore plus agréable …
LES AÇORES, îles volcaniques regorgeant d’une végétation exceptionnelle, un bel endroit préservé sur notre planète.
SARAH & KEVIN: jeune couple très agréable et expérimenté, prévenant et prêt à tout pour que chacun passe un agréable séjour.
Très belles rencontres au sein du bateau avec les autres hôtes, venant d’horizons différents.
Nous recommandons vivement cette expérience inoubliable.
Un grand merci à SARAH & KEVIN pour cette belle découverte.
