Sailing the Greek islands

We start our sailing trips right from the heart of the Cyclades - from Paros or Mykonos
You will have fast access to some beautiful Greek islands like Naxos, Santorini, Schinoussa, Ios etc
As sailing conditions vary from area to area, some itineraries are for everybody and some for adventurous people

Our departure point for your sailing holidays to the Cyclades and the Greek islands

We start our trip from the center of the Cyclades. This means either from Paros or from Mykonos

 

The access to both of the islands (Mykonos and Paros) is very easy and convenient. In fact, you can easy just fly out of Athens or you can take one of the many daily ferries. Athens, Santorini and also most of the other islands in the Cyclades archipelago are connected by ferries.

 

The Cyclades archipelago has so much to offer! In our consideration, sailing from the heart of the archipelago will provide de best possible experience. Because of their location, starting our sailing trips from either Paros or Mykonos means that we can easily reach the neighboring islands in just one tack. Usually this means that we will rarely zigzag against the wind, trying to reach our destination.

Sailing around the Cyclades with skipper. An authentic experience you shouldn't miss while visiting the Greek islands

Some of the islands are very well known, like Mykonos and Santorini. But the Cyclades archipelago offer an amazing mix of wilderness and cosmopolitan places. Here you will find incredible architecture in Santorini and Syros. Besides that, you will mixed them with the long sandy beaches of Paros, Mykonos and Naxos, and with the wild swimming spots of Milos and Polyegos.  And let’s not forget about the beautiful tiny of-the-beaten-path islands like Schinoussa and Kimolos.

 

The archipelago offers and ideal sailing distance in between the islands. In other words, long enough to enjoy your sailing legs, but in the same time short enough to limit the crossing in between the islands to 2-4 hours.

This is why we sometimes alternate our regular departure and end islands (Paros and Mykonos) with departure and arrival from Athens.

Sailing the Cyclades, Greece - Frequently asked questions

Can I customize the itinerary ?

Definitely – the beauty of a sailing cruise is to experience a dream voyage tailored to your wishes. However bear in mind that sailing is about taking the wind and weather conditions into account. In fact, your captain will advice you on the best sailing route.

 

Also sailing conditions vary greatly across different sailing grounds. There are areas with easy to moderate sailing condition year round. But also there are areas that can sometimes can get very windy/choppy. Please feel free to ask us more details before booking if you would like to get to a specific island.

 

Some of the itineraries are possible even when the winds are strong. But there are also some of them that we do not  recommend when when winds are strong. This is mainly due to high sea and less sheltered places from the winds.

 

All in all, the key to a perfect sailing holiday is keeping flexible.

What is the embarkation time? When do we start sailing?

Usually our cruises are 7 days.  For the most part, the embarkation is on Monday 11.00 a.m and disembarkation on Sunday 05.30 pm. But upon previous agreement, other days might be arranged. Contact us to inform us of your favorite departure date.

What are the meal arrangements? What about food and drink?

Food and drink are not included in a skippered charter. This means that each day you will enjoy fantastic food and wine at friendly water-side taverns at each island.

 

Breakfast: it’s just a small decision of how you would feel that morning. You can either go on-shore and have breakfast and coffee. Behind the boat, in all of the Greek islands there will be many restaurants . Or if you prefer, you can make your breakfast on board.

Lunch: the best and most relaxing thing to do is to plan for a light snack on board. Most probably you will be spending the day sailing, enjoying a beautiful crystal clear water bay, swimming and sunbathing. In conclusion, there is no point to interrupt these wonderful activities in order to find a restaurant.

Dinner: the best decision would be on shore. In fact, you will have many options of traditional Greek taverns to choose from. At every place of harbor you will be spending the night you will find taverns serving delicious food. Given these points, the Greek cuisine is something that you should not miss. For example, every island has its own specialty, and yes, you have to taste them all!

 

The skipper will be happy to recommend a great restaurant at each place you will visit.
