Boat charter in the archipelago – A boat charter to remember

Going out on a boat charter in the archipelago will be a memory for life for many! A boat charter helps to realize the thoughts we all have about the sea and the archipelago. We all have a relationship with the archipelago and everything that is out there, but also many of us do not get there.

When you book a boat charter with us at Sealife, you have the opportunity to take up to 12 of your closest friends with you. On board Sealife, there is always a crew of three people taking care of you. The safety of a boat charter is always high and we have a review before we start, so that you feel safe with us and Sealife. After a review, it is normal that we pour a glass of sparkling (Or non-alcoholic) and then you pick off the presented picking dishes when you sit nicely on the fly-bridge.

What is a boat charter without a little guidance from the crew ?! Of course we tell stories and tales about what you see and experience in the archipelago. The archipelago is full of wonderful stories far, far back in time. These are Vikings on Brännö, big fishermen outside Vinga, pirates down on Vrångö and much more.

On a boat charter we always have a look up

Really good with this type of charter is that you are involved and influence the route and your own experience thereby. Before each boat charter, we talk through almost every detail with you, so that you feel confident and that together we ensure that the conditions exist that your charter will be exactly as you want it. Then we will always try to maximize your experience further.

We have a kitchen, or galley as it is called on the sea, which is about 1.5 m2. We cook all food here with inspiration from the sea. Each charter is usually in the way that you book something to eat. We can serve 3-course meals, buffets, seafood in drifts, a nice charcuterie board or why not a Shrimp sandwich model larger. We are flexible and always talk to you. Feel free to look at our menu where we give examples of what we serve. Click here

Charter a yacht for a cruise in the Gothenburg archipelago and the Swedish Westcoast

Our season starts now! We are ready for your call – let’s plan a charter with the yacht Sealife!

After a tough period, we are now ready to start our yacht charter again. Last year was a lost year, but we managed to use the time to invest in our vessel, the yacht M/Y Sealife. She is now in a very good condition and she’s ready to meet you.

New for this season is that we’ve started to work with a great brewery out in the archipelago. Just 1,5 hours from Eriksberg you’ll find Björkö. A guy named Jonas Barlind started his own brewery here, Barlind Beer. A great place to visit with our yacht charter. He will show you around his brewery and after that we’ll sit down on the aft of Sealife and try some of his beer assortment! Really great!

Give us a call or write us an e-mail and we’ll plan something together with you!

Some activities in the archipelago

We, who work with boat charters in the archipelago, now have a great opportunity to go out in the archipelago ourselves and look for nice activities. The booking situation is cautious right now and it shows in a nice way that we all must help out to keep Covid 19 in check. At a time when there are less bookings we usually work with Sealife and keep up the maintenance, continuous review etc. It’s great fun – but every day for several weeks ,,,? Well, maybe not ?. So we decided to spend a few days in the archipelago and test a couple of activities.

You who follow us know that we have some favorites in the archipelago. One of them is Hönö-Klåva. Here we moor Sealife in the middle of the main quay, with a wonderful view towards Vinga and out to sea. On the quay, people stroll in the fine spring sun and most people stop and talk a little. We talk about boat charters, Sealife, quarantine and the nice weather. We always feel welcome at Hönö-Klåva!

After all, walking is the ultimate way to experience the place you are. When we are at Hönö we like to walk across the bridge to Fotö and walk around the whole island. A very nice island, with lovely houses and a nice harbour. Absolutely worth a visit!

Right near the quay at Hönö-Klåva we found Paolos Bicycle Shop, which among other things rent out bicycles. This was a Monday, a day when the shop normally is closed, but we got hold of Paolo and he arranged a couple of bikes for us. Good service ?! The bikes were 3-geared, with a basket on the handlebars and very comfortably.

It is something special to get up on a bike. Some childhood memories come to mind. But surely it is a fantastic invention! By a relatively small effort, you get really far and you are out in the fresh air!

We cycled in the alleys on the south side of Hönö, towards the ferry location and on to Öckerö harbour. It is great roads to ride a bike, lots of road signs and it feels safe and good. North of Öckerö you’ll find Hälsö – a real gem! We cycled around the fine alleyways, talked to people living there and just stood and enjoyed this unique environment. So nice and cozy. It also was nice to stop at Aleks Café!

Most of the islands in the archipelago have nature paths, hiking trails and walking trails. They are usually panned to take you around the island, over rocks and stones and through the forest you’ll find on the island. Always very nice! We set off with Sealife and went to Björkö, where there are nice hiking trails.

A short walk from the harbour, the hiking trails starts. Here you just choose the length and level of difficulty. Just read the signs! We chosed the one that is just over 10 kilometers and we walked for about 2 hours. So nice! The trail showed how beautiful Björkö is. We walked along the sea, through slopes filled with wood anemones and up on the high mountains on the northern part of the island.

Well, this was a few activities in the archipelago! There are many more and we will help you combine bat charter with some activities!

Yacht cruise in the northen archipelago of Gothenburg

There are many sites to visit when you do a yacht cruise in the northen archipelago of Gothenburg. Källö-Knippla is one of them. The island is very popular amongst locals, having their own boat. It’s not so easy to get there by your own, it’ll take long time and you have to go by buses and ferrys. The absolute best way to get there is going with us!

A few days ago we had guests from a company here in Gothenburg who wanted to celebrate that summer is coming. We talked about options and they decided that they wanted to cruise to Källö-Knippla. The weather was amazing so the fly-bridge was the natural choice to sit. Sealife cruised among the small islands and narrow sounds in 8 knots. A perfect speed when you want to experience the archipelago of Gothenburg.

1,5 hours later we moored in the harbour of Källö-Knippla. Some of the guests had a swim in the salty water, some stayed and had a beer in the sun. Sitting up on the fly-bridge allows you to get a perfect view of the picturesque island. The red fishemans cottages, boats coming and going, people having bbq on the piers kids having a bath. What can be better? We asked the guests if we can show some pictures from their cruise and that was ok.

It was time for a swim! On the outside of the pier it’s magic to throw yourself into the water. It’s so clear and fresh, a bit cold (18 degrees Celsius), but really worth it! In the mean time the crew prepared the 3 course dinner, served on the after deck.  Coffe and desert was served on the fly-bridge.

It’s so great to be able to show you the life in the archipelago. It’s a unique environment right outside Gothenburg. When you book a yacht cruise in the northen archipelago of Gothenburg, this is what you’ll experience!

Welcome onboard!


Yacht in Gothenburg archipelago

Midsummer, vedding-vibes, herring on a plate, yacht in Gothenburg archipelago and friends. Sound marvellous, doesn’t it! We had the great pleasure to cruise the yacht in Gothenburg archipelago with a couple who celebrated their 30th anniversary as married. Sealife was filled with joy, happiness and expectations of a great cruise in the Gothenburg archipelago.

In mid January, Lena received a call about a cruise in the archipelago at Midsummer. I mean, we were in the middle of winter and were asked to start preparing a trip on one of the most swedish days, midsummer! What a joy it brought to us! Annelie and Johan got married 30 years ago in Wienna and wanted to celebrate this with their best friends, who also were their witnesses at the wedding. During the spring we’ve planned and talked a lot about this cruise. We really wanted it to be perfect! This day, midsummer, is famous for showing up all kinds of weather at the same time! So we’ve been talking to the weather boss, and really asked for good weather.

The guests spent 3 hours om Sealife and had a traditional Herring lunch on the after deck. The islands showed their best side of themselfes, piers, fishermens-cottages, calm weather and sun! When the guests had their lunch the panoramic view was amazing. The islands of Donsö, Vrångö, Kårholmen and many more. And in the west they had the great sea stretching to the horizon.

We asked the guests if we could show you some pictures, and that was ok. 

Imagine ending this yacht cruise in the Gothenburg archipelago with a strawberry cake! It tasted so good! How do I know that,,,, well we had some with the guests as well.
