Yachting trips in the Indian Ocean 

It is important to plan ahead of time a sailing vacation in the Indian Ocean. Although your neighbor down the street may not have heard of Mauritius or Praslin, many travelers have been traveling to the many islands of the region for years. Although there is a large choice of charter boats available, you will want to book the best boat available. If your heart set on a unique itinerary the individually owned yachts that can accommodate you could be booked far in advance, especially during the holidays. The most popular boats for this region are by far the catamaran. Catamarans are particularly well adapted for cruising these waters. Surprisingly, you may also charter a motorboat in Mauritius but they are basically non-existent in the other destinations.

One-way itineraries can bring your exploration of these distant lands to even more remote corners. For the adventure, be sure to consider the smaller crewed yachts that offer itineraries that are quite ambitious and truly unique. You need to consider the trade winds and monsoon factors when planning your itinerary. It is important to weigh the different options for the itinerary ahead of time as the effort can really make for a memorable trip.

The Indian Ocean's Weather

Certain weather periods in this region create challenging sailing conditions. Having a local skipper on board will ensure that your charter experience will be more carefree. A local skipper will know how to find isolated islands, the most spectacular beaches and the best restaurants and markets. If you are planning on long distance sails to remote areas, a crew may be required. Take extra care with your provisioning list especially for remote itineraries like Madagascar or the Amirante Islands.

Prepare to travel lightly as there is no excess room on a yacht. Bring your necessities in soft luggage so that all may be stowed easily on the yacht. As you may be encountering different cultures it is a good idea to be prepared to dress modestly when in town. Skimpy clothing is best reserved for the beaches and when on board your boat.
