Boarding time is 7pm the Saturday evening at Syros and the yacht leaves the Sunday morning. You can come to Syros from Rafina, the closest harbour of Athens Airport, with a direct fast ferry at 4:30PM.
You will have more time to visit Syros on return, the next Friday.
Except if you arrived the day before at Syros and... this island worths it.
You can also reach Syros by Mykonos (one Ferry each day) or Piraeus or Athens by plane..
You will disembark the next Saturday morning and you can take the flight Syros - Athens, or the Ferry to Piraeus in the afternoon around 4pm, arriving in the evening, or reach easely Mykonos or Santorini with the fast Ferry leaving at 9:05 AM.
This is the indicative itinerary offered as for a private cruise the Captain adapts the route to your wishes taking into consideration various factors such as ports, weather forecast and ... the return date.
In the middle of the day we anchor generally on a nice cove (lunch on board), swimming, snorkeling, tanning or enjoying the Sup paddle, and then we sail to the next Island harbor in the afternoon where you are free to visit and have dinner.
We also can swap and pass one night on anchor in a nice bay, under the stars...
There is a lot of very nice spots in the area, and the volcanic island of Milos alone is worth the trip.
This itinerary can end in Santorini, taking the fast morning Ferry from Syros to Santorini, arriving there at 11:30 AM the Saturday.
In July and August Cyclades can be very windy (the famous wind "Meltemi") and that's why we offer then the wonderfully quiet Ionian or Sporades islands and argo-saronic islands with Peloponnese coast during this period, except daily trips on the catamaran from Mykonos.
The best periods for Cyclades are May or June, or after mid September.
Better weather and...less crowded.
