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.

Sailing the Greek Isles

Rated 5.0 out of 5
29th July 2019

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!
