Ionian Islands Yacht Cruise

The Ionian Sea is one of the most idyllic cruising areas of the Mediterranean. Crystal clear turquoise waters, charming little villages and a pleasant north westerly breeze make it a sailor’s paradise!

The Ionian Sea is one of the most idyllic cruising areas of the Mediterranean. Crystal clear turquoise waters, charming little villages, spectacular countryside and a pleasant north westerly breeze which rarely exceeds force 5, make it a sailor’s paradise!

It is located at the western side of mainland Greece and it stretches all the way from Corfu in the north to Zante in the south. The Ionian Sea is one of our favorite cruising areas, so we’ll try to describe the islands for you here, although it’s difficult to put in words their real beauty! One thing that makes the western side of Greece different is the lush vegetation, which consists mostly of olive groves, vineyards, a variety of fruit trees but also pine and cyprus forests. And all that, thanks to the high rainfall that this area receives in the winter, between November and March.

 

With the exception of the two bigger and more touristy islands (Corfu and Zante), the rest are off the beaten track and the best way to visit them is by yacht, as they don’t even have ports or airports. The locals who are mostly fishermen and farmers are very laid back and friendly, so we are not surprised when we often hear our guests mention that during their evening walk they were invited by an old lady to her garden for a cup of coffee! The Ionian Islands 2For our cruises we have chosen Lefkas as a base, because it is located in the center of the Ionian Islands.

From Lefkas town we have the option to sail south towards the central Ionians for a more relaxed holiday, or north towards Paxi, Antipaxi and Corfu for those who would like to sail longer distances and don’t mind the bigger swell of the northern Ionian. The Ionian Islands 3The big advantage of Lefkas is that although it is an island, it’s connected to the mainland with a floating bridge at its northern tip, making it easy for our guests to come from Athens by direct bus, or fly from the UK to Preveza airport from where we pick them up with our car.

The bus ride from Athens is just over 5 hours, but it’s definitely worth the extra effort, so you can have your cruise in this little paradise.

Yacht

Velos

For our Greek Island cruises we know that the most important thing about a charter yacht is to be spacious and comfortable, both on deck and below, and Velos is exactly that!

What attracted us to sailing yacht 'Velos' She is a wonderful yacht, designed and built in 2007 by a well known Greek boatyard (Ocean Yachts) for the purpose of charter in the Mediterranean and Caribbean Sea, as well as for long ocean passages. The accommodation consists of five cabins altogether. The four of them are situated around the saloon and the fifth which is the crew cabin is at the bow with a separate entrance from the deck. They are all en suite with a toilet, sink and a shower.

Cuisine on board

During your cruise you will enjoy the beauty of the Greek Islands, but you will also taste some of the nicest homemade dishes of the Mediterranean cuisine...many of our guests call our crewed yacht charters ‘gourmet cruises’!!! It is a fusion of dishes from the Mediterranean countries, always using fresh organic products and of course our homemade extra virgin olive oil. It is served tapas style with a variety of appetizers, salads and main dishes in the middle of the table, so everyone can help themselves to whatever they like. Lunch is accompanied by a carefully chosen local wine or a cold beer. Below you will get an idea of Alicia’s recipes, but please keep in mind that there is not a set menu and the dishes you will have on a specific cruise depend on the month of the year and the sailing area, as they are made with local seasonal products. From the nice aromas coming out of the galley in the afternoon everyone onboard is trying to guess what the meal will be, but it’s not until lunchtime that we find out! Alicia is the chef/hostess onboard our yacht Velos, but her recipes are also prepared by the chef/hostess on our smaller yacht Alexandros, as she is trained by Alicia. If you have any food allergies or intolerances it is not a problem, but it will be great if you could let us know in advance so we can accommodate for that. Our Greek Island cruises are half-board and if you decide to spend one or more nights in a secluded bay, you can also have your dinner onboard for a cost of 30 Euro per person, minimum 4 people (sundowner cocktail, appetizers, main dishes, wine or beer and desert).

A typical day

When you arrive onboard the first evening and after a welcome drink, everybody will sit around the chart and we will inform you about the area and all the possible places to visit. After discussing everybody's preferences a general itinerary will be drawn. However our experience has shown that during your cruise it may alter slightly, as you will get new ideas along the way! After all, a yachting holiday is all about freedom and exploration! A typical day on our Greek Island cruises, starts in the marina of a little village where you spent the previous night (or anchored in a remote bay if you decided to stay there!). After a good night's sleep onboard our sailing yacht, you help yourself with breakfast on deck. Normally around 9:30 we set sail. With the gentle breeze that prevails in the Greek Seas during the summer months, you will have a comfortable sail to a bay of your choice either on the same island or another one, where you can swim in the emerald waters of the Greek Seas, snorkel and explore or just relax reading your book. Around 1 pm, lunch is served at the cockpit. In late afternoon it's a good time to weigh anchor, hoist the sails again and let the local breeze do its magic and take us to a picturesque little village on another island. We'll be there around 5 o'clock which will give you plenty of time to explore the place and experience the local culture. Later you can head for dinner to one of the tavernas, where you will have the opportunity to taste the Greek cuisine, famous for its delicious plates.
