Ionian islands Cabin cruise

Ionian islands Cabin cruise
Set sail from the island of Lefkas in a 5 cabin sailing yacht with like-minded people and explore the beautiful islands of Meganisi, Ithaca, Zante and Kefalonia amongst others. Enjoy a swim and lunch in a choice of tranquil bays and evenings exploring before dining in a pretty harbourside taverna. Off the water, explore historic towns, Venetian castles, Byzantine churches  and ancient ruins, or simply  enjoy one of the most scenic and verdant islands of Greece. A maximum of 8 like-minded guests have the opportunity to share a fantastic island hopping Ionian islands cabin cruise. You can get involved in the sailing or relax and enjoy the scenery, the choice is yours, although helping out with mooring and preparing meals is part of the experience.

Discover the Greek islands by sea
There is nothing better after a day of great sailing, swimming and snorkelling than to relax on deck and enjoy a sunset and cocktail with your fellow sailors, before disembarking to explore the new island or harbour or fishing village you have just arrived at. We aim to arrive into port in the afternoon as the towns and villages we visit are well worth exploring, with each having their own character and fascinating history with lots to see. If you are a foodie, this is a great part of Greece, with each island having their own local delicacies to try.



There are many spectacular islands in the Ionian and we encourage guests to get involved in deciding where we should visit during the week, some might prefer more vibrant towns and some might prefer more off the beaten track hideaways. As in any sailing adventure weather, especially wind will always be a factor and the skipper will always have the final say in where we visit.

Comfortable and spacious sailing yachts
Our comfortable and well appointed Bavaria 50 sailing yacht is ideal for your Ionian islands cabin cruise. She has 3 double cabins and 1 twin (upper/lower bunks) cabin plus a separate cabin for the skipper. There are a total of 3 heads (WC/showers) on board, so these may need to be shared if the boat is full. A maximum of eight guests can be comfortably accommodated on board, together with an experienced, professional skipper to look after you.

Your yacht will be provisioned with a generous welcome pack including tea, coffee and fruit juices, fresh fruit, plus everything needed for breakfast and a light lunch for the first couple of days. Your skipper will organise breakfast on the first morning and, thereafter, catering on board will be a collaborative effort between the guests on board and the skipper.  The norm is to have breakfast before leaving harbour and lunch at anchor in a bay, whilst in the evening, most guests choose to dine ashore and discover the culinary delights on offer.
