A yacht adventure is the ideal way to experience what many consider the world's most beautiful islands: the Greek Islands. Sail for eight days aboard our 50 ft yachts, with time for hiking, snorkeling and relaxing. Explore ancient archaeological sites and taverna-lined harbors, and dine on fresh seafood. Our sailboats are equipped with state of the art technology offering all travelers onboard a safe and enjoyable experience.

Cabins are allotted by the skipper based on the gender and traveller make-up of the group.

Sleeps up to 2, Contains 2 full/double beds
Rooming for these boats is assigned upon arrival and neither particular cabins, nor berths can be guaranteed. You will be sharing a bunk or double bed with your travel partner or one of your fellow passengers of the same sex and sharing the bathrooms onboard. - Please be aware that as this is a real sailboat and not a cruise vessel and the space on board is tight. The sleeping quarters on sailboats are generally kept to a minimum size in order to maximize public space and performance. - It may be possible to smell engine and/or diesel fumes when in the cabins, due to their proximity to the engine room. Most travel is done during the day, so it is unlikely you will be in the cabin when the engine is running. - Some people are not comfortable with the type of close quarter arrangements typically found on sailboats, however if a real sailing experience on a real sailboat is what you are after, then this experience should more than make up for cramped quarters. - Opportunities to sleep in open air on main deck are often available. - Please note that the skipper may also be sharing the ship's quarters and amenities with you.
On arrival day, join the group at 5pm for a welcome meeting and safety briefing before beginning the sailing journey to Mykonos. Enjoy a nightcap with your crewmates on the boat, or head out to explore Santorini by night.
