About SailZen
We guide exclusively small groups around the Azores islands by sailboat. During our multi-day trips, we let the wind define the route of each adventure and it is possible to be booked as a shared cruise or as a private boat for you, your friends or family. We maintain a professional, still familiar crew of two members, captain & cook/mate aboard at all times. Our experience recommends a minimum of 6 days and a maximum of 10 days for the duration of each trip. Let us know your idea and together we will trim it. #gowherethewindwilltakeyou

Thanks to Andre and Rita who made my first time on a sailing boat memorable. We had the best time during our 10 day sailing trip from Sao Miguel to Faial in May of this year. Andre is a very experienced sailor and Rita an amazing cook. Both of them are not only kind people but also a lot of fun! They made us feel comfortable and safe every day and took us to the best places on the island. We will definitely be booking another trip onboard of Irró very soon!

I had a 6 day trip with Sailzen sailing around Faial, São Jorge and Pico, and every day was amazing and full of unforgettable experiences. Besides the incredible sailing trip we had the opportunity to go hiking, swim in the ocean, fish, snorkel, eat delicious food, make new friends... we were even lucky enough to see whales in their natural habitat. Above all, Rita and André were spectacular and they really know how to provide a wonderful experience!

We went for a day trip with Andre and Rita in May 2022. The experience was more than we hoped for! The crew was so welcoming and took such good care of us - we felt right at home. You really feel like you are in good hands with the crew. The planning beforehand was very good and Andre was quick to reply and set up the day trip beforehand. He regularly checked the weather to see which day would be best for a sailing experience, and was flexible in choosing the best date. As we enjoy sailing, we got a chance to take part in some of the tasks that were needed to be done onboard which we loved - it was a good learning experience for us. The meal that was prepared was also very good and it was so fun to get to try some of the local foods. After just a few hours onboard it felt like we had some new friends in Andre and Rita. We can highly recommend Sailzen for anybody looking for a top-notch sailing experience on the Azores and we look forward to coming back for one of their 10 day trips.

Sailing with Sailzen was an extraordinary experience. It was my first time sailing and Andrè and Rita made it very special. It was not just the sailing trip that made it special but also the trips on land, their company and of course the best food that Rita is cooking. They are great in adjusting the trip to your needs and sailing experience. I highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for a unique and personal sailing trip.
