Crewed charters in the Ionian islands and the Aegean
This yacht can be chartered privately - whole yacht for up to 8 guests with skipper and cook/hostess - or you can book only a cabin or a berth and join other guests on a shared charter as availability allows.
A typical day on board
Normally, sometime around 9:30, and after a short discussion over the chart about where would be nice to go for a swim and where you would like to be for the next night, we set sail. With the gentle northwesterly breeze that normally prevails in the Ionian Sea during the summer months, and which rarely exceeds Force 5, you will have a comfortable sail to a bay of your choice either on the same island or another one. After we drop anchor, you can stay onboard, go for a bit of swimming and snorkeling, or head for the shore.
Around 1 o'clock in the afternoon, lunch is served at the cockpit. And of course lunch is accompanied with local wine or beer and fresh fruit as a desert. In late afternoon it's a good time to weigh anchor, hoist the sails again and head for a picturesque little village on another island. We'll be there around 5 o'clock which will give you plenty of time to explore the place and experience the local culture. Later you can head for dinner to one of the tavernas, where you will have the opportunity to taste the Greek cuisine, famous for its delicious plates. A fascinating selection of local tavernas is available for you to sample and your crew, with their good knowledge of the area, will suggest some of the places with the best food.
Every day some time during the evening, we will discuss the options for the following day. A more detailed plan will then be made about where to go and what to do. And then you can go for a walk around the place, taste the local wine, then end up back at the yacht for a few drinks with your friends or just head for a bar, socialise, make new friends and even have fun till the sun rises again the next morning!
On the 'Share a yacht' cruises there is a maximum number of 8 guests on board plus our captain and hostess, and you are most likely to be sharing the boat with small groups of friends and couples. The most important thing is that you are going to be on a yacht with like minded people who want to go off the beaten track, have a little taste of adventure and meet the locals.
Informal sailing lessons offered free of charge. Scuba diving (for the day) can be arranged on request with local PADI diving clubs. (extra cost)
