Cancellation insurance can be included by your credit card payment (check with your Bank), but is often long and complicate. We advise you to take an online travel and cancellation insurance and then pay by wire Bank to Bank without extra fees. This is the link for an insurance where we are referenced, if you live in Europe : insurance

Boarding

Boarding usually begin's at 5:00pm the first day and final docking is at 9:00am the last day (example for 7 days beginning the Saturday : boarding the Saturday at 5:00pm and leaving the yacht the next Saturday at 9:00am). You can also board the Sunday morning and the yacht leaves immediately.

Itinerary and others aspects

The itinerary is flexible, according to your wishes before and during the cruise. The captain validates the itinerary according to security imperatives, the weather and the return date. These yachts are "fifty", means to use sails with engines. Sails give stability and security when there is strong wind, but is rarely possible to use only the sails. On private cruise, if you do not have priority on the itinerary, then is possible to use more the sails if the wind allows it. Air-conditionning on the cabins is working when there is enough power on the shore, and even we have a special system to run it with less power, there is many harbors in Greece not well equiped. We do NOT run the generator all the night for air-conditioning like some yachts are doing, polluting their neighbours all the night. On private cruise we can choose places well equiped if it is more important for you than the itinerary.

Good to know:

These are the 4 ways to make cruises aboard "small boats" (we offer the option number 3):

  • Option 1. "Bare boat": all tasks are carried out by our guests.
  • Option 2. "With skipper": The skipper is responsible for the operation of the boat, guests take care of provisioning, cooking, dishes, final cleaning etc...
  • Option 3. "With Skipper and hostess (and often a sailor)", 2 or 3 crew in total: You do not have to do the shopping, preparing meals or doing the dishes.
  • Option 4. Yacht with full crew and "hotel service": Additional crew members are dedicated to passenger's service and other clean the boat during all the week. A yacht of this type has usually at least 5 crew members and the weekly price varies between 30,000 and 300,000 Euro for a group of 8 to 12 passengers. It is possible to find cheaper in Egypt or Turkey.

We offer the option number 3, with a family atmosphere on board. This means that you put your feet under the table, that the skipper is responsible for navigation, but no one is at the service of anyone, or everyone can be on the service to everyone when needed : team spirit. There are currently no cabin and hotel service and, in one week, each one will probably have the opportunity to put a little "hand dough" on various aspects of life on board (even to launch a drink).

If one is used to cruise ships with a whole part of the crew for passenger's service and expects the same thing, better to choose then a cruise ship or hire a yacht with at least 5 crew members. Our formula has advantages (small group, "as his own boat," access to small coves and fishing villages, authenticity), but everyone can have a small participation and there is no "hotel service".
