Getting The Most Out Of Your Greek Sailing Charter

We leave after breakfast for one or two hours navigation, mostly along the coast, before landing in a beautiful cove. Swim, snorkel equipment, paddle or sunbathing are among the options available to you while the crew prepares a meal based on the Mediterranean diet (fresh produce, cooking with olive oil). Our meals include appetizer, main course and dessert. Drinks on board are in "open bar". After a nap on the comfortable sun beds or a new bathing, we go to the port of the next island (one or two hours of navigation), where you can visit or simply stroll and test pubs and local taverns. The boat remains at night in port, so you can come back whenever you want, after, according to your taste, appetite and budget, dined a souvlaki, Greek salad or a fresh lobster. Sometimes we reverse in order to enjoy a night at anchor in a beautiful bay, under the stars (dinner on board then).

Relax

You don't have to do the shopping, cooking or the dishes as is often the case on other shared yacht charter holidays with just a skipper.

For Your Comfort

Our vessels are over 20 meters in length - all this space for only 4 to 6 cabins for the larger one, which offer amazing comfort compared to smaller sailboats.

In a "Master" Cabin you will enjoy a "Queen Size" bed (160cm wide) with plenty of headroom for our taller clients.

We live in the Cyclades islands and know them very well. They can be very windy during the months of July and August.

The famous strong wind "Meltemi" can be so strong that even ferries can sometimes be stopped.

That's why we avoid them in July and August, and we offer the wonderfully quiet Ionian or Sporades islands during this period (except daily trips on the catamaran from Mykonos).

Why take gamble on your holiday?

If you want the Cyclades, come in May or June, or after mid September. Better weather and...less crowded !

Or go few days in Santorini and Mykonos after our cruise, simple as we transfer you directly to Athens Airport the Saturday before 1pm and there is very good ferry connexions between Santorini and Mykonos
