Tarifa has earned it's reputation as one of the best Kiteboarding spots worldwide due to a combination of high wind consistency, a great variety of spots and conditions, breathtaking landscape and amazing infrastrure. There is hardly another spot in Europe which offers such great Kitesurfing conditions throughout the year, than Tarifa. The only downside regarding a kiteboarding vacation in Tarifa is the fact that the beaches can get extremely crowded which especially during the summer months sometimes compromises the Kitesurf experience.

Most of you will know the feeling that despite the holiday having started already, it always takes a couple of days until we can really let go and start to chill out. On board a sailing yacht it's different. As soon as the sounds of the busy shores are beginning to fade and the first couple of pictures have been taken, a state of deep relaxation sets in.
Life kind of slows down on a sailing boat, and you will become more connected to nature and your surroundings again. Weather and wind forecasts will suddenly be of an entirely different importance - not only for our daily kite sessions, but also in regards to which spot we choose next, where we will anchor for the night and so on. That´s why we cannot promise a certain route for our Kite Cruises, but in fact choose the best spots possible for each and every trip.
Usually a day at sea begins rather early, often with a short wake-up swim in the ocean, followed by a healthy breakfast on board. After checking the weather forecast, we will plan our route and set sail for the next kite spot on our list. While you enjoy your fist kite session of the day, our crew will prepare snacks for lunch aboard the yacht. The evenings usually start with a sundowner on deck, before we jump in the dinghy and go for a little tour through town and check out a a restaurant on shore.
Our yacht is a modern, fully equipped 47 foot Hanse sailing yacht. She sailed around the world for the last 3 years before now being based in Tarifa. The yacht features 3 double cabins for guests, two bathrooms, a large saloon and kitchen area. However, most of the life will happen outside, where you can sit in the shade for breakfast and lunch, or chill on cushions and hammocks on deck. As one of our guest you can choose if you simply want to chill-out and enjoy the freedom of being at sea, or if you would like to help sailing and navigating the yacht.
No matter if you have prior experience or not, our crew is happy to teach you how to sail and will issue you a millage certificate after the trip with ease.
