About this holiday
Greece is famous for the Greek islands, and this tour is one of the best ways to explore this part of our beautiful country, in an alternative way. We offer all kinds of sailboats with professional skipper depending on your needs, from 2 up to 10 persons with the required number of cabins..

We suggest two or three different itineraries depending on your sailing style and the time of the year.

Cyclades is the first option and you will visit the picturesque islands of Kea, Kythnos, Serifos, Sifnos, Paros and Syros. The small white houses with the blue windows and the rocky landscape with the hidden beaches make this tour one of the most famous in the world.

Our second option is to sail the Argosaronic gulf and visit Aegina, Poros, the cosmopolitan islands of Hydra and Spetses, Porto Heli and the historical town of Nafplio. This part of Greece is more quiet, has its own unique beauty and the waters are very safe and fun to sail. Sailing distances are shorter and there are plenty of options of activities, bike rides, and sightseeing.
Third option is the Ionian islands in the west part of Greece. Zakynthos,Kefallonia, Leukas and the homeland of mythical Odysseus, Ithaca, are well known for the natural environment, the green landscape and the crystal waters. The Ionian Sea is known for its calmness and it’s a great choice for people who will try to sail for first time.

DAY 2: Kea
In the morning we set sail for our first destination, the Island of Kea. Crossing the blue waters of the Aegean we arrive at the port of Korissia. Kea is different from the rest Cycladic islands and it has a unique charm. It worth visiting the capital Ioulida or visit the beautiful beaches of the island. Wander through the small cobbled streets to the neoclassic city hall built by the architect Ernst Tsiller. Don’t forget to taste the jams and preserves that are a specialty of the island. Overnight on board.
DAY 3: Syros
Today we set sail to Syros, an island at the centre of the Cyclades. We will arrive at the small port of Finikas and will dock there till next morning. It is definitely recommended to take a taxi and visit Ermoupoli, the capital of the Cyclades, which is set upon two hills. Neoclassical buildings, the historic theatre and the old medieval city all make the capital unique. Don’t forget to taste the traditional “Loukoumi” of Syros, or to try the cafes and the local tavernas. Overnight on board..
DAY 4: Paros
Our next destination is the iconic Island of Paros with its world-famous windmills. Paros is popular for its beaches and it is strongly recommended to explore some of them. Overnight on board.
DAY 5: Sifnos
Today our destination is Sifnos, an island that some consider to be the most beautiful of all. Sifnos has more than 350 churches and monasteries many of which are considered historical monuments. Once again, the local architecture is imposing, and the small white buildings create a landscape all their own. Culture, gastronomy, and art are all combined on this island which will make a visit here one of the highlights of your trip. It definitely worth a visit to Apollonia, the capital of the island. Overnight on board.
DAY 6: Sérifos
Today we will first set sail for Serifos. According to the Greek mythology Serifos Island is the birthplace of Perseus and home to the Cyclops who were the children of Poseidon. The Ancient Greeks believed that the Cyclops lived in a cave, above Megalo Livadi Bay, and that they had built the walls, remnants of which are seen the capital. Overnight on board.
DAY 7: Kythnos
In the morning we will cruise to Kythnos and we arrive at the Port of Merichas. With only 1310 local habitants, it is quiet here in winter, but comes alive in the summer. You can visit the capital, and on through beautiful hill country and finally arrive the village of Dryopida. Here there is a cave full of stalactites and stalagmites which has been a hiding place for the villagers from pirates and Ottomans alike. Tavernas and cafes welcome you in for a drink, on this, your final day. In the afternoon we sail back to Lavrio, stopping off on the way for swimming at Kolona, perhaps the most beautiful beach in the Cyclades! Overnight on board.
DAY 8: Lavrio – Departure
We Greeks don’t like to say goodbye. Instead we prefer to say «Εις το επανιδείν» which means that we hope to see you again some time!
