Greece & Greek Islands Yacht Charter Destinations

Near Limitless and Exceptionally Diverse Areas for Cruising

The Ionean Sea

Start from the Ionian Sea with it's proximity to Italy and Croatia. The Ionian Islands include; Corfu, Lefkada, Kefalonia and Ithaki. The lands are a mix of lush pine, craggy shore lines and protected harbors. Continue south through the Gulf of Corinth on a route to Athens, or hug the coast along the Peloponnese (the land of Sparta) and head towards the Cyclades.

The Cyclade Islands are part of the Aegean Sea archipelago.

The Cyclades are best known for their archeological & historical significance and their exceptional popularity. The "major" islands include; Santorini, Ios, Kea, Mykonos, Naxos, Paros, Tinos and Delos. You will be captivated by its diversity & personality of the islands, varied harbors, sweeping views, nightlife and dining, not to mention the unforgettable sunsets spied from Santorini’s white shores. Great food, rich history, and friendly people make this a winning itinerary. Cruising furthest east, you will cross into Turkish waters and pass towards Bodrum and Marmaris, Turkey.

Northern Greece is frequently overlooked as a cruising destination but the tide is beginning to turn as visitors get wind of the secrets that are held along the beautiful coastline of Halkidiki and its many islands.

Northern Greece - East Mediterranean Yacht Charter Destination

This region is defined by its three parallel peninsulas – they look like Poseidon’s trident extending into the Aegean Sea. The peninsulas create a unique coastline that’s marked by picturesque beaches and quiet harbors and framed by lush pine forests that in many places extend right to the water.

A week’s charter here can combine geographical wonders, historical significance and modern luxuries.

On the westernmost peninsula, the city of Kassandra offers nightclubs and entertainment, while this region is also known for the important archaeological sites of Stageira, Aristotle’s birthplace, and Olynthus, known for its mosaic floors that survive from the ancient city.

This trip also evokes more recent history as some of Halkidiki’s islands featured as locations in the movie Mamma Mia! starring Meryl Streep.

Northern Greece - East Mediterranean Yacht Charter Destination

Antipaxos

Next, the yacht will make its way overnight to the tiny Greek island of Antipaxos, which is famous for its beautiful beaches and is a quieter alternative to Corfu. Spend the day frolicking in the aquamarine waters off the beaches of Voutoumi and Vrika and playing with the extensive selection of water toys stowed on board. Afterwards, the yacht will relocate south to a secluded cove to watch the sunset.

Kefalonia

Wake up anchored off Kefalonia’s Myrtos beach and have an al fresco breakfast taking in the views of the perfect half-moon of white sand backed by rocky cliffs. In the afternoon, cruise to the island’s capital of Argostoli, which sits within a deep, sheltered inlet along the Fanari peninsula. Head to the seafront and dine on the catch of the day at the Captain’s Table restaurant, hosted by colorful owner Captain Makis.

Galaxidi & the Corinth Canal

Start the long cruise through the Gulf of Corinth, stopping off at the historic naval town of Galaxidi to stroll past its neoclassical houses and visit its nautical museum. Afterwards, your yacht will navigate her way through the famous terracotta-colored cliffs of the Corinth Canal, which at its narrowest point is just under 69ft wide.

Milos

Arrive at the volcanic island of Milos and anchor off the smooth white rocks of the bay at Sarakiniko. Swim to the beach, which looks like a lunar landscape, or head slightly further west to snorkel the wreck of a freighter that hit rocks during a storm in 2003.

Greece Yacht Charter Destination

Santorini

Spend your final day on the whitewashed island of Santorini. Take the cable car for stunning views of the volcano and the old port. Return to the yacht to watch the sunset and indulge in a final dinner on board. Next morning, depart by private jet from Santorini Thira airport or extend your trip to visit the Dodecanese islands and the Turkish Riviera.

Kassandra Peninsula

Moor at Sani Marina, part of the luxurious 1,000-acre Sani Resort. In the middle of May each year, it hosts the Sani Gourmet festival where young Michelin-starred chefs showcase the best of modern cuisine. Work out at the state-of-the-art sports center at Sani Beach, or relax at the D Spa at Sani Dunes. You might also like to order a masseuse to come privately to the yacht for a treatment. End the day with sundowner cocktails on board.

Afytos

Make your way around the peninsula, the first prong of Poseidon’s trident, to the picturesque village of Afytos, which is famous for having been mentioned in the texts of Aristotle. Wander the cobbled streets and take in the views across the Toroneos Gulf. Spend the afternoon playing with water toys or just unwinding on the sundeck with a good book. Enjoy dinner on board.

Skiathos

Meet your yacht on the island of Skiathos to start your journey towards the forested peninsulas. The island, along with its neighbor Skopelos, was used as a location for the Hollywood movie Mamma Mia! The two isles offer the perfect backdrop for lunch on board: whitewashed villages, verdant forests and azure waters.

Greek Islands Yacht Charters & Vacations

Diaporos Island

Head to Diaporos Island in Vourvourou Bay and snorkel or canoe to explore the secluded coves of the Blue Lagoon, surrounded by pine trees and sandy beaches. Afterwards, enjoy a quiet night on board indulging in Greek delicacies and marveling at how many stars you can see, blissfully free of big city light pollution. It could also be a movie night – in the yacht’s cinema or al fresco, under all those stars.

Ammouliani

Start your final day at Ammouliani and wander among the traditional houses – see fishermen’s nets laid out for drying, small vegetable gardens and flower beds in full bloom. Then either take the tender back to the mainland and enjoy the scenic drive to Thessaloniki airport, or set your course for Athens where further Grecian adventures await.

Thessaloniki

Cruise overnight and then spend the day exploring Greece’s second largest city, Thessaloniki, which is the capital of the Greek region of Macedonia (not to be confused with the Republic of Macedonia to the north). As well as monuments and museums to delight history lovers, the thriving city has great shopping, a buzzing café society and vibrant nightlife. Retire to the yacht when you’re ready for some well-deserved relaxation.
