Greece Yacht Charters

Sailing level 1-3

Some things never change. In Greece, these include the twin pleasures of sunshine and the warm welcome that you will receive wherever you go. Combine sight-seeing in Athens with an adventure in the Cyclades or set sail from our bases at Lefkas and Corfu for an exploration of the Ionian Sea to discover the magical, mythical Mediterranean.  

Much of Greece is mountainous and the rocky coastlines conceal picturesque anchorages around every turn. Traditional fishing villages lined with whitewashed houses are home to casual restaurants serving the simple, seasonal and delicious food for which Greece is renowned while chic resorts are plentiful too.  

Our Greek bases offer between them a range of sailing conditions from the family-friendly Lefkas and Corfu with mostly 10-15 knot north-westerly winds to the more challenging Athens with mostly southerly winds ranging between 10-25 knots. To sail in these areas Greek authorities require ICC or RYA Day Skipper certificate as a minimum. Don’t worry if you don’t have sailing licence, we have you covered! Apart from Skippered Yacht Charters, you can learn to sail at our Sailing School or take a Flotilla Hero course  from our Lefkas base.
