Extraordinary Holidays Explore Unique Locations Wildlife Encounters
Welcome to yacht Destiny, a luxury sailing yacht custom built for your special sailing holiday, comfort, safety and enjoyment. Experience the thrill of adventure at affordable, all inclusive prices.
Always looking for interesting scenic locations to offer our guests we will be in Tromsø, Arctic Norway for winter 2015/16.
- Great opportunities for whale watching (Humpbacks and Orcas) from November to January
- Northern Lights from October to March
- Long weekend or short-week breaks based on board Destiny while exploring Tromsø and its arctic heritage - please contact us for availability from October to February.
- Sail/Ski Touring from March to May
Spring and Summer 2016 we will be returning to Spitsbergen, initially on the west coast based from Longyearbyen, but we also plan a circumnavigation before heading to North West Iceland for the winter 2016/17. From here we plan to run further adventure packed Sail/Ski Touring trips from March to May 2017.
Destiny provides a comfortable and safe base from which to access and appreciate nature, allowing close intimate interaction with the local wildlife without intruding.
We are flexible in our approach, so if you have something specific you would like to achieve while visiting with us, please contact us to discuss arrangements or simply book from the Itinerary. Shorter taster trips can be arranged for anyone not sure how they will feel on a boat, which allows you to combine it with local B&BS, hotels and cultural experiences. Visit www.facebook.com/yachtdestiny for our latest adventures.
We prefer 'going with the flow of life' rather than regular routines, one of the reasons for living and working on a yacht … you are at the whim of nature, wind, tides and the moment. Don't hesitate to contact us to make your sailing holiday a dream come true.
Sailing Holiday Testimonials
“Dear Janice & Andy the years of love, dedication and inspiration you both invested in Destiny are reflected back upon your guests every day.
Every day an adventure and every afternoon a homecoming, with a fantastic array of homemade goodies to offset all the exercise.
It's a toss-up as to what was the best part of the trip: the skiing, the sailing or the cookies. We'll happily be 'macarooned' on a 'dessert' isle with you any day. Here's to living the dream! J (Ha!)" …”
The Perkins Crew – May 2015, Norway
“I was drawn here by the reputation of the skiing – but what we got was so much more than I ever expected. A superlative week of exploration and adventure by boat and ski.
Huge thanks to Andy and Janice for all the high quality "value added" experiences – from cakes to cod! Your insight and knowledge allowed us to enjoy a perfect trip in your wonderful part of the world – and the future potential is huge! Very many thanks for such an inspirational trip in such good company. We will be back!"”
