Short Description

The Greek islands, seemingly dispersed in the Mediterranean sea, are ideal for sailing. Infinite numbers of postcards have tried to capture their natural beauty, but even the best ones are failing miserably. Visiting Greece by sea gives you the opportunity to see how the actual “myth” is, chill out in secluded gold-sand beaches, swim in crystal clear water and at the same time party at the best places in Europe!

Grab the wheel, drink your cocktails and get ready for action! The party is here!

Departures: every Saturday (May, June, July, August, September)

Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.

"Itinerary" and "inclusions" are completely irrelevant. We were promised a DJ, unlimited cocktails, free shots of ouzo, beach parties, boat parties. They did not deliver on ANY of these promises. The biggest joke was the "unlimited cocktails" which they explained on the boat meant we could bring unlimited alcohol on the boat (that we purchase ourselves).

Our first captain who brought his feral dog on board (who pooped on the deck and bit the guests) was kicked off after 2 days and replaced with another captain. The two captains needed an entire day to figure out the transition and left us on the boat with ZERO communication about what was happening.

We all got off the boat a day early after the Captain snapped an anchor and we floated seemingly aimlessly in the water while everything came crashing down from the walls/shelves as the boat rocked violently from side to side. The crew were running around frantically, crockery and glass was smashed everywhere, we all thought the boat was going to sink and we hadn't been briefed on any safety procedures and had no clue where the life jackets were.

This YOLO cruise was absolute chaos, Sail in Greece refused to acknowledge our complaints and have really shown themselves to be total scam artists.

Definitely 5 stars.The feeling of freedom when you feel the wind on your skin during a sail, sleeping on a deck under the open sky with myriad of bright stars, every evening discovering a new island, snorkelling at night - all of these was memorable and exciting.This holiday is about something different - it's about exploring and discovering something about the sea and yourself and your companions. for me that was the most valuable part of it

Amazing week with amazing people. Love the Greek islands and it was incredible to explore them on a yacht without spending thousands of pounds. I went with 4 friends from the UK and we were put on a boat with an amazing kiwi couple, Our skipper Christos was incredible, such a decent guy and he made us lovely breakfasts and lunch every day aswell as teaching a few of us how to sail. The week was so good, full of wild nights and chilled days but mainly full of diamond people. I'd reccomend this trip to anyone considering a yachting holiday.

Island hopping with a yacht was by far the best thing. The yacht life with Sail in Greece nailed it. New company but well organized and Ben, our leader was the person that you wanted to have! Knew all the bars, always calm and willing to answer even my silliest question. The BBQ was delicious and had so much fun at Paradise parties in Mekonos. Greek islands are a place the place see and thanks to Sail in Greece i had the best week of my life!

Guides

The Captain: Skipper Koulito

Born and raised in Greece, Koulito ( aka “Jack Sparrow”) has an accounting background, but his real passion is sailing! An experienced sailor, with a Yacht Master offshore license, brags more than 80,000 nautical miles solely in the Aegean Sea. Koulito is driven by his inner passion for discovering hidden gems of the Greece’s coastal waters and his stories from the past will dazzle you! As he usually says : “This is his Cyclades, you should come and see it once”. When he is not in the waters, you might “catch him” in a hidden spot of Greece taking photos like a paparazzi, as his second passion is photography!
