Come and join an adventure holiday like no other.

Rubicon 3 sailing adventure holidays, run in spectacular destinations, are categorised as Coastal, Offshore or Skills Builders, meaning your perfect sailing adventure is waiting for you.

Ideal for those joining solo or in groups, most routes don’t require previous sailing experience and top quality training on the yacht is embedded into all of them.

All our adventure sailing holidays include:

  • Two expert instructors
  • Ability to earn RYA certificates
  • Ocean specification life jacket
  • All meals onboard
  • Your own pillow
  • Foul weather clothing
  • Your own single berth (no double berths)
  • Spectacular destinations and magical foreign shores

Amazing routes to sail

Set sail in the crystal clear waters of the southern Caribbean and discover magical islands fringed with white sand and palm trees – perfect places for those who love snorkeling. Holidays sailing in the Arctic are magical.

You could sail and explore Svalbard, a world of glaciers, icebergs, walrus and polar bears. If instead you dream of leaving port and sailing hundreds of miles offshore, come on an ocean passage across the Atlantic or the Norwegian or Caribbean Sea. Over 30 magical sailing routes are available, and they always change so check regularly!


Choose from three categories...

Who else joins…

No previous experience is needed, but there’s still a healthy dose of adventure and lots of training (see later). Some days you’ll berth in a town centre, small port or marina. Others you’ll be at anchor in beautiful hidden bays. Onboard you’ll be with a group of fun, like-minded individuals. 90% join solo, and it’s usually 50:50 male and female.

Our yachts & skippers

Rather than luxury yachts, Rubicon 3 sailing holidays are run on spectacular expedition yachts, perfect for routes off the beaten track. These boats are perfect whether you want to learn to sail for the first time or cross the Atlantic Ocean. Our skippers are not just some of the most experienced in the industry, they are also chosen for being particularly kind, patient and nice to be around. It’s key!

No shouting – ever

It’s amazing how many crew join us, having been shouted at or made to feel foolish on a previous sailing holiday. It’s actually a sure sign of an inexperienced skipper.
The super experienced and professional skippers and mates at Rubicon 3 will never shout or even raise their voices. They are here to keep you safe, teach you and ensure you have a wonderful holiday.

Further information for your sailing holiday

We know it can be hard to choose the right sailing holiday. In fact, with so many holiday options, you’ll likely need some advice to make sure you get the right trip and the perfect destination.

Know that you can speak with us as much as you want before making a booking. When it comes to booking a holiday on a yacht, we like to think we have great service and no question is too simple or too obvious.

Our team, based here in England, will give you the advice you need, from which type of trip to join, what to expect on board the yacht, which destinations you might find most fun – right down to which port you need to get to and when. These are not flight-inclusive holidays so our team will also be happy to help you pick the right flights. If ever you need more information, all you have to do is get in touch.

Full financial protection – Book with confidence

We know it’s really hard to understand consumer protection such as the ATOL scheme, having an ATOL certificate, ABTA and such like. With Rubicon 3, it’s simple.

We give you the best protection of all. To ensure you are totally financially protected and can really book with confidence we deposit all money you pay for your booking with the Protected Trust Service. It means if for any reason your booking cannot be fulfilled, you get a guaranteed, immediate refund. Find out more here …
