Sailing Day or Sunset Tour in Athens

    Set sail from the famous coastline of Athens and enjoy an amazing experience fit for the whole family. Explore incredible beaches, swim in crystal clear waters and gaze out at the endless Aegean – a perfect way to complete your time in Greece.

    Our Sailing Experience can be held as either a Sailing Day, starting at 10:00 am, or as a Sunset Tour starting at 3:00 pm. The maximum number of passengers on board is 10.

    For both journeys, you’ll be greeted by a welcome drink before enjoying at least three stops at secluded bays, approachable only by boat. There’ll be snorkeling gear and fresh towels for your use, meaning you can make the most of your day out at sea.

    While making your way around the coastline, you’ll listen to stories and information regarding the city, all the while sipping on Greek wine, beer and refreshments. Before returning to Athens, your family will enjoy a traditional Greek meal freshly prepared on board. 

    For the Day Trip, you’ll then have the chance to spend some time on the Athens Riviera. For the Sunset Tour, you’ll enjoy the unforgettable experience of watching the sunset over the Aegean.

    Similar sailing tours are also available in Santorini, Crete, Mykonos and other places throughout Greece.

    • Very easy to work with! Our sailing trip from Athens was great. They arranged a pick up time for us and transportation to the port. Communication was quick and I had responses to all my questions in a timely manner, even with the time change. Thanks for setting up a great experience for us!

      • Dear Christina, I am really happy to hear that you liked the whole experience with us. It has been our honor to have you as our client. Thank you and hopefully we see you back to Greece one day soon! Maria

    • We had a blast on the cruise! The weather was fantastic, the boat was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the crew was friendly and helpful. Everything went smoothly, from the van ride to the boat and back on the van. It struck me as a little odd that there were no life jackets in sight, even with kids aboard; though I’ll admit it was also a bit of relief not to have to hassle with them, either. (Apparently, they did have some on board, I just didn’t think to ask when they might have been useful during the swimming stops. Oh, well.) They did, however, offer snorkel masks, so that made our son O’s day! The net across the back of the boat was a pleasant surprise, and a fun and safe place for our three young kids to hang out. There wasn’t much to the “historical narrations,” but that wasn’t a big deal. The two crewmen were so pleasant, attentive and helpful (without making us feel like bad parents ;); they spoke great English and were fantastic cooks. I am so glad we went on the cruise!

      • Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so happy to hear that you had a blast… the happy faces of your kids say it all! I will definitely pass your compliments to the two crewmen … I agree with you, they are very helpful and fantastic cooks! Life vests are always on board, it is compulsory (although I agree that kids do not like them… but safety comes first). I really hope we have the opportunity to see you back to Greece in the future … so many myths to be told to your kids!

    • We did the semiprivate, 5 hr sunset sail, which was fantastic. The crew was great, very attentive and pleasant. There were a few other people but it actually made for fun conversations and didn’t feel crowded at all. The meal was huge and absolutely delicious and exceeded everyone’s expectations.
