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, especially for fish and shell food, and with each island having their own local delicacies to try.

 

Skopelos

The Traditional Greece (Off the Beaten Track) Route aims to visit mostly tranquil locations where you can appreciate the natural beauty of Greece as well as some smaller ports and more traditional coastal villages, where you can sample the local cuisine, learn about the traditional Greek way of life and swim in isolated bays or anchor under the stars.

The Sporades Highlights Route includes a visit to the lively port of Skiathos as well as the main ports of each of the other two main islands in the archipelago: Skopelos and Alonissos, as well as visiting some famous beaches and fishing villages. On a two week cruise, you get to fully explore the magic of the Sporades islands. Our departure dates are flexible and subject to confirmation, requiring a minimum of just 4 people to set sail on these captivating journeys.

Whether you decide to explore the traditional Greece route or the Sporades Highlights route, you’ll embark on an unforgettable cabin cruise experience. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty, rich culture, and tantalizing local delicacies of these enchanting islands in the Sporades. With each passing week, you’ll uncover the unique charm and hidden gems of this magnificent region, creating memories to last a lifetime. Don’t miss your chance to savor the beauty and culture of the Sporades on this remarkable cruise adventure.

Comfortable and spacious sailing yachts
Our comfortable and well appointed Beneteau Oceanis 440 sailing yacht is ideal for your Sporades islands cabin cruise. She has 4 double cabins (οne for the skipper), lots of deck space and even a BBQ to use on land. There are a total of 2 heads (WC/showers) on board, so these may need to be shared if the boat is full. A maximum of six guests can be comfortably accommodated on board, together with an experienced, professional skipper to look after you.

Meals
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. Your skipper will organise breakfast on the first morning and, thereafter, provisioning the yacht and catering on board will be a collaborative effort between the guests on board.  The norm is to have breakfast before leaving harbour and a snack or light lunch at anchor in a bay, whilst in the evening, most guests choose to dine ashore and discover the culinary delights on offer. It is traditional for the group to cover the costs of the skipper’s evening meals ashore, but in most cases, he will take you to the best tavernas where there are also better prices. You should normally expect to pay around €20-€25 per person for an evening meal ashore with local wine or beer included.

Cruise Programme
Boats depart between May and October from Volos harbour
Routes may be adjusted according to the prevailing weather conditions. Embarkation is from 3pm every Saturday and disembarkation is after breakfast the following Saturday.
