As much as we love rafting, spending time on the water, sailing in the Greek Islands is hard to beat. This is relaxing small group adventure at its best. Under the guidance of your skipper, you’ll get to explore some stunning and historic parts of the Sarionic Gulf. Blue warm water, al fresco dining either on board the yacht or in the many local restaurants, this is a fabulous adventure. You’ll be one in a maximum of eight fun loving people plus your skipper who get to crew on the boat and turn your hand to sailing too. Pull into stunning anchorages, take a swim off the boat and explore the nearby islands. Explore The Acropolis and the Parthenon amongst other sites in Athens and more besides once we are sailing. If you are a group of 6-8 we can easily arrange alternate dates by arrangement. A perfect holiday for 2 families as well. If you have ever wanted to explore the Greek Islands by sail boat, this could be your next holiday.
Arrive into Athens International Airport and be greeted by your skipper, who will escort you to your hotel.

This was truly a trip of a lifetime! Sailing with Hamish was a wonderful experience. His competence, humor, and knowledge of the area made for a relaxed and fun-filled adventure. We explored coastlines and islands that we would never have seen on our own. The food on board was delicious, and the dinners at local Tavernas was a high point of the trip. The itinerary is well planned with time to explore the Acropolis and museums in Athens before setting sail for the Peloponnese. Once at sea, we swam each day, walked around ancient villages, and had plenty of beautiful days to sail on the Aegean. I fully recommend this trip to anyone interested in exploring Greece by boat. You will be well cared for and will not be disappointed!
