  • For our cruises to Sporades islands or Ionian in July and August, we organize transfers from Athens Airport to the yacht and back the Saturdays

The half-board and open-bar provisioning contribution, lump sum to pay on boarding time, is to add and include:

  • Daily breakfast and one meal (lunch or dinner) on board (this is 7 breakfasts and 6 meals, local wine included)
  • Basic beverages on the bar (self-service open-bar include soft drinks, local wine and beers and also ouzo in reasonnable quantitites) you are free to have a drink when you want and you can bring or ask the crew to buy for you any bottle you want on the market price.

This contribution is 300 Euro per adult, 150 for children under 12, 220 for 12 to 18, this is for the whole week. Minimum contribution (even if you hire the yacht for 2 persons) is based on  5 adults for the ANATOLIE and 6 adults for the SYROLANA, the KAPETAN KOSMAS.or the AMANDA

The Only Extras:

VAT (is actualy 12% of the total: renting+expenses), and crew gratuities to give in the end of the cruise (normal base: 7 to 10%). You will have then only the dinners on shore expenses to add. 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.  For Cyclades itineraries, if you wish to include Santorini in your itinerary (extreme South of Cyclades), add 750 Euro extra-fee.

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, hostess and sailor(s)", 3 or 4 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 6 crew members and the weekly price varies between 35,000 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".

Payment

If you book at least 8 weeks before departure you can choose to pay in 2 installments:
50% at the time of booking and 50% the latest one month before the departure
If you book at least 3 months before departure you can choose to pay in 2 or even 3 installments, 1/3 on booking, 1/3 one month before departure, and the other 1/3 between these 2 payments
You can download the legal conditions of our charters here.

You will receive a confirmation by email in the following 24 hours or immediately by phone.
We give you a 48 hours option to allow you to check your flights before confirming and paying a deposit.

2. To confirm your booking you have to pay a deposit of 1/3 if you wish to proceed to 3 payments or half if you want to do only 2 payments. Note that less than 8 weeks before departure you have to pay all the amount to secure your booking.

HOW to CONFIRM by a DEPOSIT or PAY the BALANCE:

1. An easy and usually not over taxed way to pay is by Electronic Bank Transfer click here
for get the information you will need to give to your bank.
2. If you want to pay by credit card for insurance reasons, there is important additionnal fees, so you have then to add 2% extra on the amount to pay. Example if your deposit is 1000 Euro, you have to write on "Amount to pay:" 1020 Euro as payment and not 1000. You can follow this link to pay by VISA or MASTERCARD.

3.Finaly, if not any of the previous ways is possible for you, then you can use our PayPal link which accepts all cards but in this case you have to add the fees of 4 % of the amount outside of Eurozone, 3% inside of Eurozone (minimum constated with the currency exchange : it is a shame !). This means that rather to send 5000 you have to send 5200 if you are outside Eurozone, or 5150 inside Eurozone.
