We spend two week bareboat sailing charter with Sail Azores in the last two weeks of May 2018 and explored all islands with the excecption of Corvo and Pico. Thanks to moderate to strong winds we could completely sail the long runs between Sta Maria to Sao Jorge, Horta to Flores and Flores to Graciosa.
Although the marinas are small, we have always found a berth. The harbour fees for our Dufour 450 ranged between 12 and 16 EUR! The harbour masters are also worth mentioning, all friendly and helpful.
The Sail Azores team is very friendly, competent and helpful. Their service outstanding!

We can warmly recommend both the Azores as a sailing area and Sail Azores as a charter company.

The Azores are wonderful islands that are well worth the effort of travelling to. The scenery ranges from the Yorkshire Dales to the Moon! All the towns are pretty and very well maintained. The people are very friendly and helpful. The food can be a little bit hit and miss, though I did have the two best steaks I have every tasted whilst there.

At the end of March we were lucky with the weather have only one F7 to contend, but the Dufour boats we had coped with the conditions well. Sailing is very easy around the islands as it is more pilotage rather than navigation.

The marinas are easy to deal with even though you have to check-in and out. However, once you are on the system, they know what you are doing. If you go to Vellas, make sure you have ear plugs - look up Cory Shearwater ;-)

Sailazores were very helpful and easy to deal with, providing transfers to and from the airport. The boats are well equipped for sailing and living aboard.

Would definitely recommend the Azores and Sailazores for your next charter.

We did a two week bareboat sailing charter with Sail Azores in the beginning of August 2017 and had the most fantastic time exploring the islands of the central group with our Dufour 410.

Everyone at Sail Azores was super friendly, welcoming and helpful. There was even fresh cheese, wine and bread to welcome us on our boat.

Nicolau and his team went out of their way to help us out with things like car rentals, spearfishing trips and island tours along the way and the islands themselves are so incredible it's impossible to not have a great time.

This charter company provides so much more than their bigger, more corporate counterparts in other parts of the world and the Azores provides the most amazing sailing grounds I've ever experienced.

Go!

We had an excellent experience with Sailazores starting from very smooth and friendly communication during booking with a lot of helpful information provided by Anabela (it was our best booking experience out of about two dozens we had). And it's followed by very warm hospitality along the whole sailing week. Nicolau and his team made everything to make our sailing week enjoyable. We'll be happy to be back once ⛵️Highly recommended
