1 Athens to Perdika

It all begins at Athens, the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. First you’ll meet your Skipper & Contiki travellers, then board the yacht & set sail to the extremely picturesque Perdika Harbour (only a few miles south of Aegina, but a very different experience all together).
This little un-spoilt fishing village is the perfect way to kick-start the trip! Go exploring with your new fellow sailors, experience the traditional Greek lifestyle, witness some stunning views and admire the small fishing houses as you walk along the shore. Then as the sun begins to set its time to sit down, relax and indulge in some delicious Greek food. Yum!

Yacht

2 Perdika to Hydra

Next up: Hydra, located between the Saronic and Argolic Gulf, is an island renowned for its beauty & bound to impress! It is regarded as one of the prettiest ports of Greece and a favorite for a number of Hollywood celebs.
On route we will drop the anchor near a number small inhabited islands & go for a swim to cool off. With an early afternoon arrival into Hydra, you’ll have a great opportunity to go exploring this islands beauty… on foot or donkey, as this little paradise is vehicle free. Go see the gorgeous cathedrals & monasteries, eat some delicious seafood by the water, take a dip in the ocean & get social (as this place has a great nightlife).

Yacht Breakfast

3 Hydra to Plaka Leonidion

Get the cameras ready for some great photo ops in the charming Naflpio, filled with handsome neoclassical buildings, adorable shops, enticing restaurants and two museums to enlighten the history buff within. The best thing to do here is drop the map and get lost down the beautiful cobbled streets, you’ll come across local markets with food to sample and souvenirs to buy.
If historical fortresses or amazing views are your thing, check out the Palamidi Fortress citadel & Akronafplia fortress which sit on the hill above the city… worth the walk!

4 Plaka to Nafplio

Get the cameras ready for some great photo ops in the charming Naflion, filled with handsome neoclassical buildings, adorable shops, enticing restaurants and two museums to enlighten the history buff within. The best thing to do here is drop the map and get lost down the beautiful cobbled streets, you’ll come across local markets with food to sample and souvenirs to buy.
If historical fortresses or amazing views are your thing, check out the Palamidi Fortress citadel & Akronafplia fortress which sit on the hill above the city… worth the walk!

Yacht Breakfast

5 Nafplio to Spetses

Today, stop for a swim at Zogeria Bay. With a population of just over 4,000 people, this little island offers relaxation the way the Greeks do it best.
Next on the list, Spetes! Enjoy some chill-out time on the beach or indulge in an icy Frappuccino to cool off as you wander through the quite streets, possible by a horse-drawn carriage. With boutiques & loads to explore, there’s plenty to keep you busy.
If that’s not enough then this narrowly paved little island has a collection of beautful churches and Venetian mansions, which date back over the last few centuries. Go for a stroll, relax and enjoy the night.

Yacht Breakfast

6 Spetses to Poros

Start the day with a swim at Kounoupi islet. The turquoise crystal clear waters makes this an ideal stop and its pretty easy to see why this is a ‘must stop’ for all yachters. Then head to Dhokos to let the relaxing continue or chuck your snorkeling gear on and keep an eye out for some old pottery on the sea floor, one of the most ancient shipwrecks full of ceramics (that sunk 2500 BC) was discovered here not too long ago…so fair to say this place has its fair share of history.

After a big day of island hopping we’ll dock up in Poros – with its pine, lemon & olive trees dotting the landscape. Pick up some olive oil to take home, or just roll out your towel at Kanali beach and pop into a local tavern for lunch, or head to Askeli for some beachside volleyball. Enjoy every second until the sunsets, then make the most of the night.

Yacht Breakfast

7 Poros to Aegina

Today we will be heading to another beauty…Aegina. This island is known for its long coast line and wealth of historical artifacts and ancient sites.
En route we sail past the uninhabited Moni island, its crystal light blue water and beautiful beaches are utter perfection!
Once we’ve dropped the anchor in Aegina, make the most of your last afternoon of exploring and then get ready for your last night out, which should be easy as this place knows how to throw a farewell party!

Yacht Breakfast

8 Aegina to Athens

We pull up the anchor one last time as we head back to Athens. This means it’s time to start saying farewell to the crew, swap contact details & reflect on the trip.
