The Altea Bay is one of the must-see places on the Peninsula, and like any area of beach and sea worth its salt, to visit it as it should be, you have to see it from the sea. In 8nucs we take care of it, taking sailboat trips around the area of Altea and its surroundings, such as the Sierra Helada Natural Park and other emblematic points of the Costa Blanca.
And the best part is that it is not a simple boat ride, but you can be the protagonist of the adventure. In addition to admiring the beauty of the natural park, the rock of Ifach, the bay of Calpe ... and more places, you can become a sailboat captain for a day and come with your crew, and everyone can participate in this activity.
Our sailboat is a Benetau First of 11 meters in length and we recommend that the number of passengers is 6, although it is not a mandatory figure. We will teach you on board basic maneuvers to sail independently, with friends or family helping and also being part of this experience.
They are 3-hour rides and we organize 2 departures a day: one at 11:00 and another at 4:00 p.m. We will stop to anchor, have a soda and take a well-deserved bath in the Mediterranean, that the candle requires a good physical effort!
There are also initiation and improvement sailing courses , Monday through Friday afternoons in July and August. One session is from July 29 to August 2 and the other is from August 26 to 30.
And there is more! The cetaceans usually swim in the waters of the Bay of Altea, such as the bottlenose dolphin, which is sometimes seen next to our sailboat, adding interest to this adventure.
Check any questions to schedule the perfect departure, we are waiting for you.
