Christmas Sail Charter Vouchers

A Viking Mariners yacht charter sailing voucher make an ideal present for the whole family. Sailing is a recreation for all generations to enjoy - from grandparents through to grandchildren, our experiences cater for all ages and provide a fun and memorable way to spend quality time together.

If you’re looking for a Christmas gift idea that is an experience that the whole family can enjoy then sailing could be the answer you’re looking for.  We use comfortable, large yachts for all our sailing experiences.  This means that a sailing experience with Viking Mariners is unique – everyone can enjoy the same experience regardless of age or physical ability.  Because our yachts are spacious and luxurious the whole family can experience the joy of sailing together.  Some of our favourite bookings over the years have included both very young children and guests who were over 80 years old!

Sailing experience facts:

  • You won’t get wet (there’s no wading in the river, and we provide wet weather gear if it rains!)
  • Our yachts are suitable for year round sailing
  • You can get involved in pulling ropes and turning wheels if you fancy it…
  • or you can sit back and relax while our experienced crew does all the work

Viking Mariners sailing experiences are neatly tailored to our guests – whether you’re looking for a gentle cruise up the river, with a glass in hand or getting “hands-on” to experience the thrill of setting the sail and manoeuvring the yacht along the river.

Above all our hosts and crews are all incredibly experienced.  Not just at sailing, but also at making every sailing experience unique and magical.  Everyone at Viking Mariners is friendly.  If you look at any of the photos on our website you’ll see a sea of smiles.  This is why sailing is increasing in popularity so swiftly.  There’s something about the experience of being on the water that brings out so many things, from child-like wonder to the spirit of adventure.

Gift packages are available for individuals or whole families.  Give Sue and Lee a call on 01394 421209 (or use our contact page) to find out more about giving the gift of sailing this Christmas.

Once you have purchased your voucher we will send the voucher by email for you to print and give to your loved ones. Either you or one of the recipients can then contact us to book the exclusive yacht charter for a date of their choice and we will do the rest.
