Sail with us in the historic city of Acre, on the beautiful bay of Haifa

Acre (Akko) is a UNESCO World Heritage City, in the north of Israel, rich in historical sites from the Crusaders and Ottoman times. Today it is a vibrant small community, with lovely authentic oriental market,  a fishing port and marina

Sail with us north, and see the Achziv Reefs, close to Rosh Hanikra, the northern point of the Israeli coast

Sailing is done on our small yachts,  giving you a chance to actively take part in operating the boat if you feel like it. But if you are interested in a more leisurely and luxurious sail, we've got some larger yachts (at Haifa), which you'll just love sailing
