Welcome to the world of Naleians!
Hello! My name is Dominik and together with Jack, Nico, and Marc we are organizing Naleia sailing trips.
We are dedicated skippers who love to discover the world from a perspective of a sailboat. We enjoy meeting new people, are addicted to sharing adventures and people say we are good hosts. Handcrafting experiences and building a sailing community is our work and we love it.
Feel invited to join us on our next sailing trip!
Features Of Naleia Sailing Trips
The sailing route and daily plan is flexible and is decided day by day on the basis of the weather forecast and crew`s preferences: sailing is normally blended with snorkelling, sunbathing, exploring islands, caves, and going out for dinner in small coastal villages…
We do our best to be more sustainable by: blending in the cultures that host us, sailing instead of motoring, limiting plastics use on board, encouraging conscious food choices, collecting plastic garbage on remote beaches, and measuring water quality in places we anchor.
Not a Party Sailing Trip
If you want to drink till you sink and dance half naked on the deck at mid-day, please find another sailing trip. We love however, to have some wine, play music or take out guitars in the evening and sing the night away! It is all about the attitude.
Usually there is more than one yacht on our trips. Therefore, we ask a bunch of easy questions about your expectations, experience and customs. Based on your answers we divide people into the best-fit crews.
From Strangers to Friends
Naleias’ trips are handcrafted for open-hearted people from all over the world. The usual participant falls into 25-45 age group but it is the mental age that counts! We usually host 5 nationalities on a 9 people yacht and 2 to 5 yachts in a flotilla.
Participate and Co-Create
Our sailing trips require you to be a part of the team. You will help sail the yacht, cook, provision the fridge and mix drinks if needed 😉 This helps to build the team, gives frame for the adventure and allows you to co-create the experience you wish to have.
Off The Beaten Charts
We prefer less frequented locations to have more genuine experience. Our trips are scheduled outside mass tourism invasions and where possible we choose less known ports and marinas to moor at. Naturally we visit the gems of the region too!
We pay the skippers a fair wage for their work. In the end, they work 24/7 for 7 days on Naleia sailing trips and are responsible not only for your safety but also for creating a nice experience.
Ambassadors of Culture
By travelling we encounter new cultures. With respect we try to blend in and “while in Rome” we do as the locals do. At the same time we remember that we are an example of “our” culture and we do our best to leave a good impression.
Adventure in the nature
We believe that re-connecting to the nature is an experience that brings the best in us, therefore on every sailing trip we choose a few especially stunning natural locations to explore. You can count on most remote bays, sunset hikes, star gazing at night, glowing plankton…
A comfy bed on a fully equipped 12-16m sailing yacht, tender, end cleaning, tourist taxes, bed linen, towels, etc… If you join solo you share a same-sex cabin.
Pro Skipper who is in charge of sailing. S/he is a part of your crew, facilitates the trip and shows you the best secret spots.

Naleia Sailing Trips
So, what is it again?
We organize sailing trips for anyone with an open heart and a will to enjoy life. It is a week of sailing and living on a yacht, learning how to sail, exploring uninhabited bays, walking through historic towns, eating well in local restaurants, snorkeling, and watching sunsets. As we love nature 2 or 3 nights we drop anchor and stay on a remote island, somewhere in the middle of a paradise…
People who join these flotilla holidays mostly don`t know each other but after a couple of days of experiencing Naleia spirit become a crew, build friendships and sometimes even relationships! Often bonds become so strong that after-sailing-reunion is a common thing. Warning! This holiday may change the way you perceive people, world and yourself. For better.
