One week sailing cruise including destinations with historic monuments, picturesque towns with vivid nightlife and secluded bays for relaxing moments on your sailing yacht

 

Saturday (Day 1)

The trip starts from Kalamaki marina, at Athens south coast. The yacht leaves the port in the afternoon and spend the night by the cape of Sounion, under the hill of the Temple of Poseidon (built in the 5th century BC)

Tip:

Learn about the ancient Greek myths and history related to the Temple of Poseidon

Sunday (Day 2)

After a morning swim in the cape of Sounion, sail to Hydra island and arrive early, to find a spot to berth in the small, historic port.

 

 

Tips:

Walk by the historic buildings around the port, the defensive walls and the canons, 'travel' back to the era of Greek Revolution

Enjoy the vivid nightlife in the famous bars of Hydra, some full with tourists and many co-sailors

Monday (Day 3)

Have a morning coffee in Hydra, leave to Dokos island, an hour away. Dokos is an uninhabited islet few miles away from Hydra. Yachts moor in the very large bay of the islet, fully protected from all wind directions. Get a line ashore and spend your time in a totally smooth manner.

Tip:

This is the relaxing day! You may swim, dive from the boat, sun bath on the deck or the beach. At night, make drinks, get your favorite music and enjoy the stars as your ideal, romantic ceiling for the night

Tuesday (Day 4)

Head to the island of Poros, cross the canal and enjoy the wonderful bays of the island, covered with pine trees, down to the sea level.

Tip:

If you have time and mood you can organize a BBQ in the beach (purchase supplies on the port of Poros), or just enjoy your dinner in the traditional restaurants of the island. Later on, enjoy the night life by the port; Poros is traditionally one of the most vivid islands when it comes to bars and night life. Ask us for the hot places to send to you to the right ones!

Wednesday (Day 5):

Sail to Epidavros port, few miles to the west. It's a small, quiet port and village, carrying a unique history.

Tips: 

Visit the ancient theater of Epidavrus, still hosting theater plays and accepting thousand of guests every year from all over the world. The theater and its museum is open also for sight seeing; bus and taxi service is available from Epidavrus port.

Feel the subtle energy of the area that ancient Greeks chose to build the monumental theater, learn before you visit to know what you should expect to see. 

At night you may enjoy dinner in the yacht or at the selected restaurants by the port.

Thursday (Day 6)

Head north to Aegina island, have a swim in Moni islet and continue to the port. Try to arrive early (by 4-5 pm latest) to assure a spot in the small and busy port.

Tip:

Meet the traditional cuisine of Greece in the small taverns behind the port and the fish market. The tables are usually occupied by other co-sailors so you feel familiar, although first time on the island. Enjoy local wine or 'ouzo', taste the fresh fish of the Aegean Sea and get an impression about how locals live their lives when the tourists are gone. This would be the ideal, relaxing night on the islands, before your return to Athens.

Friday (Day 7)

Have a relaxed day in the port of Aegina. For breakfast you may try the local products, pistachio with honey and sweets. Don't take long to start for the end port of Kalamaki, in Athens. On the last night, visit the Old Town of Athens, in the city centre, or relax by the beach, refreshing the memories of an unforgettable sailing cruise. Disembarkation is on Saturday morning.
