Greece sailing adventure: 7-nights Ios to Athens


A Greek island sailing tour is a unique and fun way of sailing Greece. 20 years ago we created the concept of sailing cruises by the cabin in Greece; sailing on a shared yacht with a skipper, crew and inclusive meals. Over the years we've honed our program and you can now join by the cabin or charter your own yacht and join as a flotilla. Young or old, our trip is for all ages and experience levels, you'll make new friends aboard or book as a group and sail with your friends. As long as you're adventurous, active and interested in seeing the wonders of Greece, then this is the trip for you.

 Accommodation and meals

Accommodation on our Greek island sailing cruise is aboard 56-60ft monohull sloops with 5-6 double cabins and private washrooms. 

Images are shown in good faith as accurate. When booking a cabin charter, a cabin only is being booked and not a particular yacht. On occasion, based upon the number of bookings, a different vessel either larger, or smaller with different interior layout and decor could be used. The service, meals and type of cabin ie standard, superior or premium are not changed when a vessel changes. 

We include two healthy meals aboard the yacht each day - there is no kitty, or deciding who is going to make the meals or wash the dishes! 

Breakfast is served just before we get underway for the day and lunch is usually served in the shaded cockpit anchored in secluded bays or underway. Soft drinks, and water are included and stowed on board. You are welcome to bring your own alcohol on board.

1 x small double stern with private washroom. Stern cabin is the widest cabin on the yacht offering good space next to the bed and a closet for storage.

Why book a cabin with Poseidon?

We have run the Aegean Sea sailing tours for over 20 seasons and when we started we were the only company operating this type of holiday in Greece. Nowadays, there are many other companies, some seem less expensive and are geared more to adventurous backpackers, however, they sail on smaller boats with ‘shared’ washrooms and no ‘meal plan’ or 'crew/cook’ included. Other companies sail on older model catamarans and include a stay in 'low budget hotel' in Athens. Although catamarans offer slightly more cabin space, they often cannot find space to dock in the tiny Greek harbours and they do not sail well in the 3-5ft Aegean Sea wave chop. Our program features luxurious, blue water, 40 ton monohulls, which are very seaworthy. The sheer size and displacement of our vessels make the Aegean sea much more comfortable than competitors' 6-12 ton boats - which have problems in the bigger seas of the Aegean. Our vessels offer large sundecks, cabins with 'private' washrooms, cabin fans in all cabins, generator for AC, cappuccino/espresso machine, deck hammocks, kayaks, snorkel equipment. Our crew provide breakfast, lunch, beverages and afternoon tea/coffee daily. The most important thing is our carefully researched itinerary which is a mix of ‘must see’ cultural locations and ‘off the beaten course’ islands - highlighting hikes to sites and the very best ‘local’ evening gastronomy at each island. Our boats, crewservice and cultural itinerary sets us apart from all the other cabin charter operators.
