Sailing holiday destinations

Villages & Islands of the Pelion.

We offer three Greek island cruises at different times during the spring, summer and autumn, sailing from Kala Nera and Volos, Pelion. All our sailing holidays visit the sea-side villages and islands of this beautiful and largely undiscovered part of Greece. Almost unknown to foreign tourists, the Pelion is one of Greece’s best-kept secrets. The pace of life is slower and you get a chance to become one of the locals.

The Pagasitic Gulf & Trikeri Island

We cruise the sheltered waters of the Pagasitic Gulf, which is almost entirely enclosed by land – the Pelion Peninsula one side, the Greek mainland on the other, and the island of Evia at its mouth. Its waters remain warm enough for swimming even in winter, making it a perfect destination for an out-of-season holiday. All cruises visit the tiny island of Trikeri, which has only about 20 inhabitants and no cars.

Greek island-hopping.

When we leave the Pagasitic we sail either east, island-hopping through the Sporades islands – Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnisos, or south, exploring the spectacular coast of the island of Evia.

What is a Sail and Shore Holiday?

Sleeping on board a boat isn’t everyone’s idea of fun. For the non-purist who loves the idea of sailing but also likes the idea of a private bathroom and unlimited hot water at the end of the day, we offer the perfect compromise – Sail and Shore. Sail during the day and sleep ashore at night. You have the chance to explore a bit more of the region, try the local restaurants and the next day we will whisk you ( or slowly glide you, according to the wind conditions) off to another beautiful destination.

Menus on board

Our menus made with the freshest local produce to give you a taste of the region with maybe a hint of the familiar, with an emphasis on quality and simplicity. We fry only in home-produced Single Estate Extra Virgin olive oil; eggs are free range organic, and we also have a wicked line in wild boar bacon! There is fishing gear on board, so fresh fish is always a possibility.

The Sporades Islands, strung out in the Aegean like a handful of seeds thrown in the wind, offer wonderful varied destinations: lively Skiathos with its zinging nightlife; picturesque Skopelos, made famous by the film Mamma Mia, and unspoilt Alonnisos where the crystal seas of the National Marine Park are home to an number of endangered species.
