Welcome to our adventure around the Mediterranean!

We are Maria and Oli, the crew of SAONA, and every spring we set sail to a new journey through the Mediterranean. These trips not only give us the opportunity to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, but also to reconnect with the essence of the sea and nature.

At SAONA SAILING, we are passionate about sharing authentic experiences at sea, while promoting a sustainable and responsible way of traveling. So join us on this unique voyage, where every day is a new adventure and every port is an opportunity to discover the magic of the Mediterranean.

Come along and immerse yourself in this unforgettable experience!
