Yachting holidays in Greece - A journey of discovery

Whether you are interested in a journey of discovery, an activity holiday, or a restful break away, yachting holidays in Greece could be the right holiday for you. There are lots of different tour operators on the market, so there are plenty of choices and good prices to be had.

Skippered yacht

If this is your first sailing holiday you may wish to charter a yacht with a skipper. This will allow you to relax on the yacht’s deck and enjoy the sea air and warm weather. You won’t spend time navigating and you won’t lose your way as you island hop between the bigger islands like Crete, Lesbos, Euboea and Rhodes or the smaller uninhabited ones that make up the estimated 6,000 Greek islands.


If you have experience of sailing and choose to hire a yacht without a skipper you will have the freedom to explore at your own pace. Tour operators will provide all the navigation tools you need and they can be contacted by radio or mobile phone, so you won’t be sailing without support. Some tour operators will suggest routes and may even give you regular weather updates by text message.


Your other option for yachting holidays in Greece is to join a flotilla of yachts. Some tour operators offer this type of tour to provide a community to sail with and a few friendly faces to moor with. This type of yachting holiday would be ideal for families, as there could be other families within the flotilla, or inexperienced sailors who would benefit from sailing with a group on a set route.

Final word

Whether you tour the Argo-Saronic Islands near Athens, the Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea, the North Aegean Islands off the coast of Turkey, the Dodecanese, the Sporades, or the Ionian Islands, yachting holidays in Greece offer experiences and memories that you would not be able to get in any other holiday.
