Brief description of the holiday
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 :)

Other useful information
There is a direct bus from the airport to Marina Alimos, Kalamaki. The bust station at the airport is in front of the entrance. The best is to buy the tickets in the kiosk next to the bus stop (don't try to go without it since they check the tickets quite regularIy) :)
It takes around 40 minutes to get to the Marina by bus. The bus stop you need to leave is "1st KALAMAKIOY" and you will be just in front of the Marina. The other option is UBER taxi which can take max. 3 people in Athens and cost around 25 euros. Bus ticket is around 5-6 euros per person.
