The Lure

During the summer, The Action Cruise team run trips in the Mediterranean around the Greek Cyclades, to the north of Sardinia and the south of Corsica. They also set sail in the Caribbean early in the year around St Vincent and the Grenadines, Guadalupe, Antigua and Barbuda.

Operating since 2015, they’re passionate about seeking out virgin kite spots and sailing to the most beautiful beaches on their charts. All of their trips take place on luxury catamarans with cruises running throughout the year in some of the most incredible, ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ destinations you could ever hope to kite!

The setup

The cruises follow the seasons and all trips are timed in conjunction with the peak times of year for wind in each location. The best months for the Caribbean cruises are from May to December with the Grenadines trips starting out from St Georges in Grenada, while the Antigua, Barbuda and Guadalupe tours kick off in Guadalupe at Pointe a Pitre. On all of the Caribbean cruises you’ll stay in a double room on their modern, tricked-out catamarans for ten days and the focus is mainly on finding flat water and freeride conditions around the remote atolls, sandbars, bays and cays that dot these islands. You’ll also visit some of the area’s most iconic spots, like Union Island in the Grenadines and Jabberwock Bay on Antigua.

On the Cyclades cruise you’ll meet the boat in Paros in Greece before setting sail for ten days through azure Mediterranean waters, navigating around just some of the 220 islands that make up the island chain. There are countless flat water spots, many of them on secluded islands that can only be reached by boat and you’re more or less guaranteed to have the majority of them entirely to yourself!

The Sardinia cruise departs from the north of the island and you’ll cruise the kite spots around Porto Pollo and the Maddalena Archipelago, before heading across to the south of Corsica and the islands within the Natural Reserve of Bonaficio.

Action Cruise have rental equipment, including foils and directionals, available on request and they also have snorkelling gear that’s free for use. On no-wind days you can go SUPing, cliff diving and also wakeboarding on the Cyclades trips and the crew will often anchor next to port towns on both their Caribbean and Mediterranean cruises, allowing you to go ashore, eat and take in some of the local culture.

Wind, weather and water

Water temperatures are lovely on all of the cruises with an average of 27°C / 80°F in the Grenadines, 22°C / 72°F on the Sardinia trips and 24°C / 75°F when the crew sets sail in the Cyclades. During the late Mediterranean season around October, you might want to wear a shortie, but for the rest you’ll be fine in swimwear. Air temperatures are typically tropical in all of the locations, but take a light jumper or jacket for the evenings if the wind’s up.

 

 

SAFETY

All of the boats that Action Cruise operate have tenders (safety boat) which are on the water with you when you go kiting. You’ll always have a team member watching over you, which means you can shred those remote, off-shore flat water spots with equanimity! The crew can help you launch your kite from the boat or they’ll take you to shore and you can set up on the beach.

RIDER LEVEL

Action Cruise welcome kiters of all levels with instruction available for beginners and improvers. Lessons are taught one-to-one in English or Italian by IKO instructors and a quiver of Core XR5s are available for hire for independent riders. There are also a couple of advanced freestyle and freeride clinics coming up this year, which will be coached by Duotone pro rider Manuela Jungo.

NO WIND 

Action Cruise have rental equipment, including foils and directionals, available on request and they also have snorkelling gear that’s free for use.
