About Us

The harbor of Horta is a mythical stop for those who cross the Atlantic. Sailboat Azores floot has base in Horta, allowing the unique experience of living the environment of Horta, drinking a gin tonic in Peter’s Café and go around the islands...

But, if Horta is the center of the sailing in the Azores, the other islands are a “must see” too! São Jorge and Pico are very close from Faial, just a few hours sailing; Graciosa and Terceira are also less than a day trip. The remaining islands are within a day trip...

Sample image


The views from the sea are fabulous and there are terrific places of refuge along the coasts. And there are dolphins, whales offshore turtles ... and the phosphorescence of the water in the night... there is a beautiful world waiting for you!

Sailboat Azores offers a variety of services ranging from short sailing trips of two hours, half or full day , up to the bareboat or skippered rental of sailboats, from 1 day to a week.
