An absolutely fantastic time! The 2-person crew was an exceptional asset to the trip. Sailed the beautiful Mediterranean sea and got to see Greek Islands I'll likely never get a chance to experience again. The sailboat was clean, safe and comfortable. Would do it again in a heartbeat!! Thanks again to the crew Yannis and Sherman!!!

Our best selling offer, the Greek islands sailing tour includes accommodation on a 50ft sail boat, a highly qualified local skipper, as well as port and boat fees (up to $200 in value). There are plenty of optional activities like swimming, snorkeling, hiking and biking. If you decide to join us, here is a glimpse of what you'll enjoy:
Meet at Dia Noche cafe in the Alimos Marina - meeting time is from noon-3pm. You will meet your skipper and fellow passengers. Being on a sailboat is a unique experience. During the next days you will learn how to work as a team, share the boat and make wonderful new friendships. After check in, get settled into your cabin and introduced to the boat, its safety procedures, drills and emergency equipment (we want to make sure you feel safe on board). Then you'll set sail for the first Saronic destination, the island of Aegina, to watch the sunset and dine in one of the traditional tavernas by the marina. Enjoy your first night on board!
Depart after breakfast, and moor at one of the beautiful beaches nearby to enjoy the water and sun. Then continue on to the next hop - Poros. Due to its proximity to Athens, this island is frequented by many locals and has a vibrant night life - you may want to go dancing in one of the night clubs or just chill with a drink in one of the stylish bars.
Now that you are used to being on the water, time to sail on to the Cyclades - the island of Kythnos. You'll anchor in a remote bay and enjoy one of the natural wonders of this island - a hot spring bath right on the beach! The skipper will cook an unforgettable dinner under the stars.
Mykonos! The party capital of Europe, with a maze of narrow streets lined with fantastic restaurants and bars - feel like a celebrity and get immersed in the jet setters world! You'll want to come back here for sure!
Say hello to Syros, the capital of the Cyclades. Visit the city of Ermoupoli, which boasts neoclassical architecture, great shopping and lots of night life. Optional activity: rent a car and explore the many beautiful beaches around the island.
Relax and enjoy as you are make your way back to Athens. Spend the night at bay in Sounio, where you can visit the temple of Poseidon, and have your last dinner on board.
In the morning, head back to Athens (ETA ~ 2 pm).
