Ionian Flotilla from Lefkas

This Lefkas flotilla in the south Ionian sails from Nikiana, on the east of the island and visits Meganisi, Kefalonia and Ithaka as well as some of the smaller and more traditional islands and mainland destinations. Due to the calm conditions in the Ionian, this is the ideal flotilla for the novice sailor.

Lefkas Flotilla Overview

The Lefkas flotilla holiday sails from Nikiana harbour, on the east of the island and visits Meganisi, Kefalonia and Ithaka as well as some of the smaller and more traditional Ionian islands and mainland destinations. Each island, harbour and town has its own character, from cosmopolitan Fiskardo, traditional Lefkas to sleepy Kastos and the pine-clad bays of Meganisi, you are spoilt for choice and there is something for everyone on an Ionian islands flotilla holiday.

The Ionian islands remain ever popular and with good reason. Gentle breezes, secure anchorages and iridescent waters make this the ideal flotilla holiday destination. The protected waters are ideal for less experienced sailors as well as those more experienced sailors looking to relax and unwind.

For the best of both worlds, why not try a combination of a week of dinghy, windsurfing, kayaking & SUPing at our beach club in Nikiana before or after a week exploring the Ionian islands on the Lefkas flotilla. The perfect Greek island holiday!

We also offer two amazing 2 week explorer flotillas running in April and October with yachts available for virtually half price. The North Ionian Explorer heads north towards Paxos, Corfu and the coast of Epirus, taking in many delights on its 2 week journey.

Skippered Flotilla – for those new to sailing
If you like the concept of a flotilla holiday for your family or group of friends but lack the qualifications or experience to skipper the yacht yourselves, then a skippered flotilla holiday, where we provide a professional skipper to take charge of the sailing and navigation, may be the perfect solution. Unlike a standard charter, you can also enjoy the social side of sailing as part of a flotilla, meeting others in the evenings or during the day, organized activities for the kids as well as all the usual benefits of yachting, like exploring, swimming in secluded bays during the day, and the simple joy of travelling under sail. It all adds up to a magical family holiday.
