Enjoy a late season break

Late-season boating vacations

The perfect time of year to be on the water...and here's why!

With the school's back, a vacation in September or October has many advantages - not least because things are a little quieter, relaxed and you can soak up the last rays of the season. A boating vacation is particularly suited to this time of year, especially if you enjoy something a little more active...



Boating vacations in September and October...

Something to enjoy in all weathers

Something to enjoy in all weather

In months when the weather is less reliable, its good to have options. And a boating vacation gives you just that. Laze on deck and soak up the rays if the sun shines. And when the sun fails to perform, you can wake up somewhere new each day and go exploring. With so much to see and do, our boating vacations can be as active (or as relaxed) as you want them to be.

Enjoy a front row seat for Autumn

Late summer and early autumn is a great time of year to be outside where the air seems fresher, the temperatures are more comfortable and the trees gradually change into a riot of color. Our vacations give you front row seats to the great outdoors. If you love nature, and especially the changing seasons, then on board is the place to be.
