White Swan gives you the chance to experience 2 days and 2 nights on an authentic sailing boat. Learn from your skipper and crew and even take the opportunity and learn to sail yourself! Enjoy the thrill of skimming along the water as the wind whips past you and waves break against the hull for an equally exciting and relaxing experience.
