The authentic way to cruise around the stunning Greek Islands.  Comfortable, traditional wooden yachts in total harmony with Greece and nature.

Rent a cabin or a whole crewed yacht to experience the best of the Islands of Greece.

Days on board begin with breakfast on deck before a cruise of a few hours to the next cove or anchorage.  Swimming, snorkelling or lazing in the sun on deck while the crew prepare lunch based on Mediterranean fresh food.  After a siesta or a swim, cruise to the next island where the yacht overnights in harbour allowing guests to dine ashore.  Some days, lunch is ashore and dinner Is onboard under the stars in quiet coves.

During May, June, September and October, the cruise itinerary departs from Mykonos and visits the Cyclades islands.  From Mykonos, this cruise visits the holy island of Delos, Paros, Ios, and stunning Santorini before returning north to Mykonos via the small Cyclades islands (places such as Schinoussa and Koufonisia), Naxos and beautiful natural Rhynia.  Alternatively, a second itinerary concentrates on the more northern Cyclades including Syros and deserted beaches on Schinoussa and Koufonisia as well as Paros and Naxos.  Final itinerary decisions will always be taken by the captain taking into account weather conditions and harbour availability for the yacht.

During the height of summer in July and August owing to the Meltemi wind which makes for challenging sailing conditions throughout the Cyclades islands, the two yachts go their separate ways.

Anatolie heads north towards the Sporades islands.  From her base at Oreous on Evia, weekly cruises depart to discover the beautiful islands of Skopelos, Alonissos and Skiathos – home to the hit movie Mamma Mia.  Nights are spent in harbour towns or at anchor in the bays of the stunning natural marine park where dolphins and sea turtles are regularly seen.  Transfers to and from Athens airport are provided for this itinerary.

Irina heads to the western side of Greece to base herself in Messolongi, close to the city of Patras.  From here, she departs for weekly cruises around the Ionian islands including Kefalonia where overnight stops can include peaceful Agia Efimia or the stunning St Tropez of the Ionian – Fiskardo, before heading further north via Ithaca (home to the famous Onassis) towards the mainland at Mitika.  Finally, return southwards via the island of Kalamos and Kalamaki on the mainland and onwards finally to Messolongi.  Generally 2 nights are spent at anchor in quiet bays with 5 in harbour on this itinerary.

Both of Anatolie and Irina are traditional Greek caique yachts.  Irina is comprised of 2 master cabins (queen sized double and removeable children’s bunk with private shower room) and 2 standard cabins with shared shower room (one of these is a triple) – giving a maximum of 10 adults on board.

Anatolie offers 3 master cabins (each with queen sized double and private shower room, with one offering a third berth) and 2 standard double cabins each with private shower room.  Finally there is also a single berth which is combinable with any of the cabins and only has access to shared facilities.  This gives a maximum of 12 adult guests on board.

On both yachts the price includes yacht hire as part of a group, crew fees (except tips – please add approximately 7% to cover these), water and fuel consumption, 3G wifi access on board (for emails etc – not sufficient for downloading) and transfers (from Mykonos airport in the Cyclades or to and from Athens airport for the Sporades or Ionian).  The half board contribution is payable locally at approx. €275 per person and includes daily breakfast, 6 lunches or dinners (depending on point of anchorage each night) and an open bar whilst on board the yacht.  (Based on a minimum of 5 persons paying this – even if private hire of the yacht).

Prices for these island hopping cruises start from £969 per person for the Cyclades itinerary and £1129 per person for the Sporades/Ionian itineraries. This price is cruise only and excludes the half board contribution which can only be paid locally.
