Your personalized island-hopping itinerary will include stops on various islands in the infamous Saronic Gulf or Cyclades in the Aegean. You’ll depart each island in the late morning/early afternoon (sailing time will be between 2-5 hours), stopping for a swim, relaxation, and lunch in a secluded cove, before continuing on to the next island. You’ll dock in port in the late afternoon, just feet away from the best activities, restaurants, and bars on the island.
You don’t need to make any decisions as far as the route prior to your arrival. It is part of the nature of charter sailing in Greece that there is a possibility of areas with strong winds/rough seas in the Aegean which may prevent you from sailing comfortably to certain islands on certain days. As a result, your exact route is not planned in advance and will be dependent on the weather/winds. When you arrive at the marina you can discuss your options with your captain who will customize the itinerary based on your interests and the weather. If you’re looking for a more relaxed trip with calmer seas and shorter sailing times I’d recommend the Saronic. If you don’t mind possibly rougher conditions and longer sail times the Cyclades are a wonderful option as well. All the islands are really incredible and unique on both routes.
Here is a partial list of possible islands in each route:
Saronic: Aegina, Poros, Hydra, Agistri, Spetses, Porto Heli, Ermioni, Epidaurus, Nafplio and Tyros
Cyclades: Kea, Kythnos, Syros, Serifos, Paros, Sifnos, Antiparos
