The best first sailing experience for our family. 2 adults, 3 kids, 3 days and nights in a great sailing boat, with the best captain - Manu- and the best and sweetest chef -Celine- ! Thank you for everything!

We have a family of four with two specials needs sons 13&14 What would the cost be for us? We wanted to possibly treat our 2 friends as well in which case it would be 6 people. It would be late mid-late April 2017. We want to have the option to sail by wind and motor both if possible to experience both and let the kids see how that is done. My only lifetime wish is to swim with Sea Turtles.To possibly see a sunken wreck would be cool too. Beach time and sailing around., other than that we aren't picky. Lunch on the boat preferred, with gluten free options , as 3 of the 4 of us are. Thanks! Super Excited! I hope we can afford it!
