Luxurious Sailing Vacations Athens

Sailing holiday with us in fantastic and secluded bays kissed by the sun, deep blue sea and new friends, pushed by the wind we'll discover these fabulous islands.

A Greek island sailing tour is an adventurous unique and fun way of sailing Greece. We started sailing Greece 25 years ago when we created the concept of booking a cabin on a yacht in Greece, over the years we've honed our program and you can now join by the cabin (sailing on a shared yacht with a skipper, crew and inclusive meals) or charter your own yacht and join as a flotilla. Young or old, our trip is for all ages and experience levels, you'll make new friends aboard or book as a group and sail with your friends. As long as you're adventurous, active and interested in seeing the wonders of Greece, then this is the trip for you.

Each day your Greek island adventure will have planned excursions to make for an unparalleled adventure. Our warm and experienced crew know every bay, classical temple and gourmet restaurant in the region.

 

Cabin on a 56-60ft monohull yacht. Non-alchoholic drinks with meals. Experienced crew - skipper and hostess. Cabin with private washroom. Unique cultural itinerary. Great sailing. Fun excursions and social activities. Wonderful restaurant guidance. See this historic, maritime nation made up of 4,500 island jewels set in five different cruising areas.

Each region is geographically different and the islands all have their own myths to tell, but all offer golden sandy beaches and the relaxed, warm hospitality only found in Greece.
A Greek charter offers so much more than a charter in other destinations - it is a cultural, journey through the cradle of western civilization. Sailing cruise to the emerald sea, the sun bleached stone and the thick green pine forest!!

Itinerary

Day 1
Athens, Alimos Kalamaki Marina
Time is best spent on Saturday morning touring the many historic attractions in Athens. Arrive at Alimos Kalamaki marina for boarding at 17:00hrs. Unpack and a safety briefing may follow in the cockpit if time allows, but it is important that you read the safety information prior to boarding. Dinner: A relaxed welcome dinner will be held at 19:00hrs at Edem restaurant just outside the marina giving you an opportunity to meet other cabin charter guests, flotilla staff, fellow flotilla guests. The first night is a sleep over in the marina.
Day 2
Athens
Distances and sailing conditions: 12 miles – 2.5 hours. The Saronic Gulf area is known for light winds from the south in the spring and from the north in the summer. Highlights: See the famous Temple of Aphaia (490 BC) by taking a 1.5-hour round-trip hike. This is one of the more challenging hikes on the tour. If you choose not to hike you can explore the quaint little village and have coffee overlooking the bay. Aegina boasts the best pistachio nuts in the world and they can be found in the local shops. Enjoy lunch from the cockpit followed by a swim in the crystal clear waters of the bay. Aegina
Day 3
Poros
Distance and sailing conditions: 6 miles - 1.5 hours. Motor sailing along the coastline. Highlights: The narrow channel between Poros and Spathi provides an excellent photo opportunity of the built up terracotta roofed town, passing fishing boats and the bustling harbor. At Bourtzi island take pictures of the Venetian fort that once defended this narrow passage. Spathi bay's clear water is good for snorkeling and Mediterranean marine life. Lunch is aboard the yacht anchored at Spathi or upon arrival at Hydra. Spathi bay
Day 4
Hydra
Highlights: A free day to explore the wonders of Hydra. For a relaxing morning, sip coffee at Pirate's bar; visit art galleries and shop for local handicrafts, exquisite clothing and jewelry. A 30-minute coastal walk or ten-minute water taxi ride leads to the rustic Miramare hotel and charming Mandraki beach. For the more adventurous a one-hour hike through ancient stairways and Venetian architecture allows a view from the top of the steep harbor. For the very fit, two more hours through an enchanting forest reveals the sacred monastery Profitis Ilias overlooking the harbor, Hydra Channel and the Peloponnese. Dinner: Kodylenia's taverna (30 min coastal walk or 5 minute water taxi) is an open-air terrace restaurant over looking tiny Kamini harbor and offers an extensive menu including fresh fish and giant Hydra calamari. A pirate night and dance may be scheduled on this night - so bring costumes!
Day 5
The passage into the Cyclades can take 1 of 3 routes as follows:
Distance and sailing conditions: 55 miles – 9 hours. Northerly winds in the summer months and southwesterly air in the spring makes this a favorable passage. Highlights: The best sail of the whole trip is this leg from the Saronic Gulf to the Cyclades leading to a remote overnight anchorage. Arriving at uninhabited Kleftiko bay, moor with fore and aft anchors, then swim or snorkel in translucent waters. For a surreal experience, take a kayak through a maze of breathtaking caves admiring the surrounding white cliffs - some as high as 100m. Dinner: Eating aboard under the bright Aegean night sky makes this stop one of the highlights of the tour. This remote anchorage is weather dependent and maybe visited on day 5 or 6 or not at all. Wednesday: Hydra
Day 6
Dependent on the previous day one of the following options applies. Thursday: Kleftiko bay, Milos
Distance and sailing conditions: 12 miles – 2 hours. Motor-sail along the coastline. Highlights: Rent small cars or minivans to see some of the phenomenal geology of Milos. Visit the spectacular volcanic creek of Sarakiniko and hike around the deep grotto of Papafraga. Later in the day see the charming fishing village of Madrakia and the ancient, Hellenistic amphitheatre at Tripiti where the statue of the Venus de Milos was found. Other sites include the geological museum near the harbor. Dinner: In Tripiti there are two choices, Glaronisi and Ergina's Ouzeri which both specialize in local Miloan delicacies including thin spicy cheese pies (pitarakia), unique local lasagna, fresh seafood and meat with herbs in casserole. An exquisite choice at sea level is Glaros taverna at beautiful Pollonia bay that offers fried feta with sesame seeds and honey, fantastic pasta and salads. While dining you may be lucky and see the local seal splash around in the bay! Thursday: Kythnos
Day 7
Dependent on the previous day one of the following options applies. Friday: Milos
Distance and sailing conditions: 50 miles – 8 hours. Open Aegean north winds normally allow for a broad reach. Highlights: Swim in the azure waters of the blue lagoon at Poliagos before continuing to Ios the halfway point on the tour. After docking, enjoy the luxury of Leostasis' 5 star hotel and spa. Swim in the infinity pool, reserve a massage or simply have a hot shower and cocktails watching the fantastic sunset over Ios harbor. In the evening participate in the famous Ios pub-crawl! If you are with us for 7-nights only, this will be your last night aboard. Dinner: Leostasis' fine menu is prepared under the guidance of one of Greece's finest chefs. For a more bohemian and lively experience, Lord Byron's is the place to go for fantastic Greek fusion dining.

Activities and Tips

Activities

Swimming and snorkelling

Each day there is a chance to swim and snorkel. The Med is not a tropical destination and therefore is not a diving destination as there is very little to see underwater. However snorkelling is a great way to explore the bays and the few brightly coloured fish. There are a limited masks and snorkels onboard so if you are an avid snorkellor it is best to bring your own.
