Overview


Sailing in the Greek Islands is hard to beat.  White washed buildings, warm blue sea, amazing food and fascinating history, this is a holiday that will make your friends envious. Our 50-foot sailing boat can comfortably accommodate up to eight people, making it perfect for families, singles, couples or groups of friends (if you want a private booking just for your party, speak to us about suitable dates). Under the guidance of your skipper and crew, you’ll explore picture postcard islands in the Saronic Gulf. Try your hand on the helm and learn the art of sailing; take a swim off the boat in one of our many tranquil anchorages; get stuck into local tavernas with an ouzo and souvlaki in local ports;  and explore ancient sites like the amphitheatre at Epidavros and the Acropolis and Parthenon in Athens.  If you have ever wanted to explore the Greek Islands by sail boat, this could be your next holiday.

EXCITING SAILING, DELICIOUS FOOD, AND FASCINATING GREEK SITES. THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME.

5th November 2021

Traveling with Hamish is always an adventure! An unforgettable way to visit several charming Greek towns, experience exceptional food and service, and appreciate current and ancient cultures.

Sailing and sipping wine in the beautiful Greek isles, what more could you want!

Can't Wait For Our Next WBN Trip!

3rd November 2021

What can I say about a WBN trip? This is our second trip with WBN and it lands squarely in the top 5 trips of a lifetime!! (Top spot goes to WBN Zambezi trip, in case you are wondering, and we have reservations for New Zealand in the spring!) Greece has long been a bucket list item and getting to experience it under sail was an amazing opportunity. Hamish and Melissa showed us an adventure like no other. Not only did we eat and drink well, we learned a few things about sailing!! There might have been a little competition among each us as we took our turn at the helm under sail to see who could reach the fastest speed on the water. I truly appreciated the chance to try my hand at sailing. I can see how this could easily become an addiction!! Hamish also made sure we got in our fair share of culture with the Acropolis, Parthenon and the Ancient Amphitheater of Epidavros which were all incredible sites to visit. Hamish even treated us to a true Kiwi chant to test the acoustics at the amphitheater. If you are looking for adventure, great company, awesome food and lifelong friends, you can’t go wrong with a trip with WBN!!
