Half day sailing tour

 

Enjoy a shorter tour that lets you try your hand at sailing with time to experience the real archipelago of islets and rocks, yet still have time for other activities, such as kayaking or getting a delicious meal in Dalarö.

We set sail either in the morning or after lunch and are immediately submerged into Stockholms rich archipelago of islands and islets. Dalarö, our point of departure, is very much a part of this unique landscape. During the four hour tour, we will take time to enjoy a snack and a cup of steaming hot coffee and if we’re lucky we might spot a seal or a white-tailed sea eagle!

Your skipper will have you back in time for lunch or dinner so that you can dine in one of Dalarö’s quaint eateries or take a walk along its peaceful streets.

About our boats and skippers

When you go sailing with Vind o Vatten you meet skippers who are passionate about what they do, who own the boats they sail and who nourish a close relationship with the Stockholm archipelago. They are well educated and experienced, each one having a Ship's Officer Class VIII certificate with decades of experience sailing in the archipelago, sail racing and offshore sailing.

You will be sailing a well-equipped and comfortable size boat of 35-36 feet. These boats are fast and fun to sail, without being too lively or difficult to handle. Since we sail our own boats, we know them inside and out and are fully aware of the possibilities and limitations of each vessel. We provide wind- and waterproof clothing on all tours as well as comfortable life vests for each guest.

On occasion, we start from Svinninge in the central part of the archipelago which is also easy to get to by public transport or car.

    Fantastic and unforgettable!
    We are 3 Swiss people who love to sail and have always wanted to experience the Stockholm archipelago on a sailboat. Karin from Vind o Vatten made this possible. Her sailboat is moored in the port of Dalarö, a sailor’s paradise that is a 45-minute drive from Stockholm. Shortly after 10 a.m. we started – well “packed” in Karin’s sailing gear – on a 6-hour sailing tour around the island of Nämdö. Thanks to the good wind (it seems like there’s almost always wind here!) we were able to moor in a small bay and eat something for lunch. Karin is not only fluent in French and English, she is also an extremely interesting woman. We would highly recommend this sailing tour to anyone wanting to explore the archipelago.

    Stellar Outing
    Sailing with Birgitta on the Esmeralda 2 was the most memorable time of my 5 days in Stockholm. The boat is tip top and her attitude is totally cool. Birgitta’s knowledge of the archipelago is encyclopedic but she totally gets that sailing is about listening to and watching the wind and water so you have to ask questions to get the full benefit of her wisdom! I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    We went on a sailing trip with Birgitta on her beautiful boat « Esmeralda 2 ». We went around Dalarö and then the second day we sailed till Utö. It was very easy to sail and take an active role on the boat as Birgitta explained everything very clearly. She also had organized the trip in a way so we can get the most of the Archipelago : fine deli for lunch, dinner at a fancy restaurant and breakfast at a typical bakery with lots of delicious pastries. Birgitta has also been very helpful recommending things we can do while in the Archipelago. It was a unique and unforgettable experience for the whole family. I highly recommend it!

    Full day sailing tour

    Explore the Stockholm archipelago by sail! Book a boat and skipper for you and your friends and family to experience this unique landscape.

    Experience the dream by sail and spend a full day exploring the pearls of the Stockholm archipelago. If you are a beginner, your skipper will introduce you to sailing and if you are more experienced, you are encouraged to partake in the sailing as much as you wish.

    On a day tour with one of our 35-36 foot boats we will bring you from Dalarö all the way to the outer islands if the weather permits. We drop anchor in a safe bay to have lunch, swim or take a little rowing trip with the dinghy. For an entire day you will experience what cruising looks like in one of the most beautiful archipelagos in the world.

    There are few better ways to fully experience the Stockholm archipelago than by sailboat. Many of the islands are wild and uninhabited by people, houses, cars or the modern world. Get close to nature and its wildlife under the tranquillity of the sails, swim in the waters in a calm bay and learn about sailing and the landscape in a relaxing atmosphere together with your friends and your skipper.

    Three Days Sailing All Inclusive

    Three days sailing (or more) and All Inclusive for the whole family or a group of friends. Let your skipper guide you to the hidden gems in the Stockholm archipelago! On this tour, departure and return begin and end at 5 pm. Food, sheets and towels are provided for all guests onboard.

    We start in the afternoon of the first day at 5 pm and after a review of the boat we set sail to an island nearby. Dinner is eaten while we are underway in the cockpit. We will anchor relatively late on the first evening, around 8-9 pm, and after having found a safe and secluded creek, we will crawl into bed for a good night’s sleep.

    The next day we get up at 8 am – or earlier, if you wish – to get a full day’s sailing. We set sail towards the outermost islands, weather permitting.  All of our sailing tours are adapted to the weather and to the requests and experience of our guests. Most likely we will stop in a peaceful and quiet bay for a swim and some lunch. In the evening we anchor in a sheltered natural harbour or marina if you wish to have access to more services. If weather permits, we can make a barbecue on the cliffs and enjoy the view, otherwise we’ll spend a cosy evening in the boat, telling sailing stories by the glow of the kerosene lamp. There is nothing like sailing all day for a good night’s sleep!

    On the last day, we will put in as much sailing or as much leisure as you wish before heading back towards Dalarö to arrive at 5 pm. We can set sail early in the morning and drop anchor for lunch, or we can spend the morning walking and swimming before heading straight back. It’s up to you! Whatever you choose, we promise to bring you back to the jetty in Dalarö on time.

They are well educated and experienced, each one having a Ship’s Officer Class VIII certificate with decades of experience sailing in the archipelago, sail racing and offshore sailing.

    For the All Inclusive you will be sailing with Birgitta and her Linjett 35, a well-equipped and comfortable Swedish boat of 35 feet. It’s fast and fun to sail, without being too lively or difficult to handle. Since the skippers of Vind o Vatten sail our own boats, we know them inside and out and are fully aware of the possibilities and limitations of each vessel. We provide wind- and waterproof clothing on all tours as well as comfortable life vests for each guest.
