Sail on one of our modern yachts at your own pace, drop anchor for a swim or snorkel in the clear warm waters. Explore coves, beaches and secluded bays and discover pretty villages and breath-taking scenery. Your sailing adventure starts at the marina yacht base. from there you will sail to different islands during the holiday visiting all the best ports, bays, beaches, restaurants and tavernas.

Our friendly and professional skippers will provide informal sailing tuition and ensure that you have a gentle introduction to sailing in a relaxed, safe and fun way. There may be some of you who want to learn and practice more than others and that’s OK.


Exclusive use of a yacht with private sailing tuition

We offer private, informal sailing tuition for couples, families and groups of friends. Private tuition means you don’t have to share a boat with people you don’t know and having your own skipper on a yacht by yourselves allows us to offer more individual attention. We have the widest choice of modern, highly specified and award winning yachts.


Our Skippers

All our skippers are young, talented sailors and teachers who have been chosen for their professional and friendly approach. They provide professional support and a personal service throughout the holiday and with lots of local knowledge they can give you tips and advice and make recommendations so you get the most out of your holiday in Greece. They all enjoy sharing their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for sailing whilst making sure you have a fun and relaxing sailing holiday. They have taught sailing to people of all ages and abilities and will ensure you enjoy a valuable learning experience as well as a unique holiday. Your skipper requires a cabin onboard but they always become welcome additions on the yachts they sail.
