What is Kraken?
Kraken Travel is a curation of hand-picked sailing adventures from trusted independent sailing operators. Each operator lists their unique ocean-going adventure for you to browse and book online – from your smart phone, tablet or desktop.
Can I bring a hard suitcase?
Ideally not. Space on boats is always limited and you don’t want to end up sharing you bunk with your suitcase! Soft luggage such as duffel bags and rucksacks are your best bet.
