Attention: We suggest you to be careful about the boats you will rent, above all if you don't know the boat owners, the agencies or the brokers you address to. In fact, due to the crisis, many boat owners have cut the maintenance and crew expenses, also on boats once well known for their high standards.
Don't trust agencies or brokers without any licence or qualification, disguising themselves as professional players just for rent a boat at a very attractive price: therefore, it is better to check on their websites if it is shown the Vat number (as required by Law), location and telephone number, as the risk is to have a bad surprise onboard!

The coasts of Greece

Sailing on board Gulet is the best way of enjoying a relaxing and comfortable holiday, and of visiting Greek coast, a wonderful and charming country having more than 10.000 miles of coasts and about 1500 islands. Anyone loving the sun and the sea, the beaches and the water sports will find in Greece the ideal conditions for his satisfaction. Greece is synonymous of serenity, beauty, arts and colours; rich of bays that offer safety anchorages in a quiet sea with light blue and crystalline water.
This country offers also beautiful and coloured fisher's villages, wide beaches with white sand. Here you can find many restaurants and entertainments, the typical taverns near the sea, pubs in which dances and music can put you in contact with the deep Hellenic culture. Greece is full of ancient history for people wishing to discover it and it offers everywhere the real evidence of our Western culture.
We remind you that on board of the boats we selected for you we don't want to impose anything; that's why we try to let our guests choose which route they prefer to follow, after listening, of course, to Captain's suggestions! The crew are always very hospitable and discreet, and they will make you feel as you are on your own boat, respecting above all your privacy.

Routes

Greece is ideal for sailing on board a Gulet to the high number of different islands having a very short distance each other and offers a variety of routes:
Ionian Islands - Corfu, Antipax, Paxos, Lefxas, Kefalonia, Ithaca and Zante.

We do not suggest sailing in the Cyclades Islands during the month of August, as they are hit by the strong Meltemi wind which can cause many problems.
Dodecannese Islands Patos, Arki, Lipsos, Leros, Kalimnos, Kos, Nisiros, Tilos, Astypalea, Simi and Rhodes. As these Greek islands are very close to the Turkish coast, it's also possible charter Turkish gulet to sail across Turkey and Dodecannese.
