Questa esperienza, in breve




Looking for an active rest this summer? There is no better plan than to join our sailing holidays!

All routes are individually prepared for each crew, depending on the weather conditions, your preferences and mood. Your safety and comfort are our priority!

We suggest sailing in the Saronian Islands, such as amazing Hydra (where there are no cars or trucks, only donkeys), Poros with its unforgetable views, Perdika - a small fishing village where you can find the nicest people in the world, Epidavros, where we visit amazing ancient theater, Aegina with the best life music and Zorba dancers and many many more :)

The winds in the Saronian bay are perfect for leisure trip. They are not too strong but they blow everyday. The islands are far less turistic and commercial than those in the Ionian sea. You have a chance to visit and feel the real Greece with its unspoiled local atmosphere.
We love it so much that we sail there each year for more than 10 years now :) But watch out - once you visit Saronian Islands, you will not imagine going anywhere else in Greece :)

This is how our typical sailing day looks like:

- We wake up, eat breakfest, have some coffe in the village or a little walk and we sail away.
- We sail for a few hours and then we reach some beautifull bay with lovely and desert beach. Then we have time for snorkelling, swimming, sunbathing, exploring the island / bay, reading the books and so on. Together we prepare some lunch (greek salad seems to be perfect for the hot day!), have some rest - maybe a little nap won't hurt :) and we sail away.
- We sail for a few hours - for volunteers chance to learn how to steer, tie a knot and other sailing activities :) For others time to relax and sunbath on deck.
- We reach new island, moor in a lovely small village and explore the new place. /They say sunset in Hydra it's even better than in Santorini :)/. In the evening we go to the Taverna to try some awesome local food as well as the delicious greek wine, dance some Zorba, listen to live music and relax! "No hurry" - thats our main theme :)

Nothing is better on a hot summer’s day than being on the water, swimming in crystal clear sea and feeling the wind in your hair.
Bringing your loved ones on board and experience all this together is an adventure of a life time. Unplug yourself and spend some quality time together. Be close to the nature and feel the freedom that only sailing can offer you :)

We know what we do!
We have been organizing sailing cruises for more than 10 years now, having thousands of happy crews on our board. If you have questions, doubts or just wish to talk with us - don't hestitate! We will be more than happy to help you and provide all the necessary info!

During all our cruises Agnes will be your guide. She takes care of our crews and helps solving all the issues that might come up. With Agnes you will know where to do the shopping, where is the best Moussaka and which place serves the best coffee. She will tell you what each island has to offer, as well as indicate the best view points and local spots :)

ROUTE 1: SARONIC, start and end in Athens (Salamina)

Greece is the perfect destination for those who seek and appreciate the historical and cultural heritage of the classical era.The ultimate route in Saronic is a mix of sailing, swimming/relaxing in beautiful bays and sightseeing unbelievable must-visit ancient landmarks.

On the way there is a UNESCO heritage ancient theater inEpidavros(the best preserved in the world with incredible acoustics hard to Find nowadays. When you drop a coin on stage you can hear the sound in the last row); in Epidavros we have dinner in our favorite family-runTavernawhere the tables are situatedunder the Orange trees- absolutely stunning (you can eat one growing directly above your head). Plus the owner is a woman (not very popular in Greece), which makes the place magic! In the Bay outside Epidavros we anchor next tosunken city- snorkeling from the boat over ancient town below the water on depth of 1.5-2m; stunning Temple of Aphaia one of the ancient architectural wonders, built on the hill ofAegina Islands(also known as "pistachio island") - beautiful and unique; on Aegina we also have a possible trip to family-run pistachio plantation, where you can see how the pistachio grow and find out why there is only one male for 100 woman :) In the evening we go for dinner with live music on a typicalgreek instrument bouzouki -learningZorba danceis a plan for the night! :)Hydra, jewel of the Saronic- an island withno car traffic- all the transportation is done only by donkeys; the sunset in Hydra is told to be even more beautiful than in Santorini. No wonder why this island is a place for summer houses for many film stars and singers. At the top after Long hike you can visit monks in a monastery.The architecture is absolutely amazingand one of a kind - maze of streets was built that way to protect from Pirate attacks. Getting Lost there is a very nice experience.Salamina- where the largest naval battle took place;Perdika- a small fishing village where you can find the nicest people in the world; the family that runs our favorite Taverna, after many years became our close friends, almost like family members.Kalotina and Notiswill make sure that you will get the best service and be treated with care. Mamma is making absolutelythe best moussaka in the whole of Greece!The tzatziki with homemade yogurt is a life changer :)Nextour secret harbour (with one family-run taverna and no shop) that can fit only 7 boats. Very local place which is known only by those who have sailed there for many years. From there we can make a trip toa nice winery and try some famous Peloponnese wine (more below)!Poros- an Island withunforgettable viewsand the best grilled dorada we ever ate (and we travel a lot!). After supper at Mike’s we go for a nice walk / hike up the hill to reach a small typical chapel from which you haveone of the best views in Saronic!A little meditation at the top will be a perfect ending of the adventurous day. On the way down to an Ice cream place - the pistachio flavour from local nuts will make you come back for it the next day! :)

The winds in the Saronic bay are perfect for a leisure trip. They are not too strong but they blow everyday. The islands are far less touristy and commercial than those in the Ionian sea. A chance to visit and feel the real Greece with its breathtaking historical sites.

P.S. Last year we introduced a new attraction that was very much enjoyed by our guests - a trip to the small, local vineyard with international wine awards and the vines growing in volcanic soil. It is a very special family run place (NOT a tourist trap), actually we are the only tourists visiting this place. Father is a very funny guy who makes the tour and tells all about the wine making in the family (they even put some of the bottles at the bottom of the sea to give the special flavour) and Mamma (who doesn't speak english) cooks local dinner from ingredients coming from her garden. During wine tasting (which is more like wine drinking looking by the amount we usually drink) every bottle (usually around 7-8, white, rose and red) comes with a different meal that is well selected to this type of wine. After this amazing feast our hosts (if they are in the mood) show us the typical Greek dance and songs and usually we dance Zorba ect. it is truly a local and amazing night, often we hear the best during the cruise. The food is homemade and absolutely the best and the experience is as Greek as you can get :)

La migliore esperienza locale e viste meravigliose nelle Cicladi su una grande barca di 50 piedi

La gestione della vacanza è stata come indicato nel programma. La barca Zorbas è molto comoda anche per me che sono alto 1.90 e che potevo stare comodamente in piedi nella Dinette e nell’ingresso alla cabina. Abbiamo fatto delle belle navigate a vela partecipando attivamente al cambio vele e agli ormeggi. Le colazioni e i pranzi preparati da Aga erano sempre perfetti. Abbiamo anche fatto una Avventurosa discesa ad una Taverna tipica in una isola disabitata. Compagni di crociera a dir poco fantastici! Insomma…Vacanza molto piacevole e rilassante!

My daughter and I have had a wonderful experience and enjoyed very much our stay on the boat. Greg have succeed to avoid the bad weather which was happening in Greece by carefully studying and planning our sailing journey without taking away the discovery and the fun. We have experience some real sailing moments with some rough sea which was for me one of the highlight of the trip. The journey took us in some unexpected places and made us discover the beauty of the Cyclades. An other highlight of the stay was the absolutely wonderful lunches and healthy breakfast Aga prepared for us everyday. The relax and friendly atmosphere on board was very pleasant. Overall a fantastic holiday we will never forget.

Had an amazing time sailing the small Cyclades with Greg and Aga! Despite challenging weather conditions they worked so hard to make our trip fun and enjoyable. Greg is a great skipper and was always happy to have us get involved in learning all aspects of sailing. Aga's breakfast and lunches were delicious, often the best meals of the day! Both Greg and Aga are so passionate about sailing life and really like to share this with their crew. Loved it!

The week spent with Aga and Greg sailing the Saronic Islands was very nice, it was a very nice mix of Sailing, swimming in remote bays and discovering the different ports and their Tavernas. What really stood out was Agas Cooking, we had the best Breakfasts and Lunches, healthy and super tasty! You can really see that Greg is a very experienced sailer/Skipper... we always felt very safe and his maneuvers in the little ports are incredible!
