Visit the beautiful Greek islands on a luxury yacht. Your holiday starts as soon as you arrive. We provide a service, so you are met at the local airport by some of the crew, in an air conditioned mini bus. All of the provisions will have been loaded aboard, and the fridges and freezers are full to their brims with food and drinks for your trip. A luxury yacht has all the comforts of a small intimate hotel, your cabins all have separate bathroom on-suites. The crew have their own quarters, separate from the quests.
Crewed Yacht Charter in the beautiful Greek Islands
No sailing experience is required to go on a crewed yacht charter holiday. You will be looked after by your captain and his professional crew, they are capable of running the yacht and don’t expect your help. If you do wish to help in any way, maybe get behind the wheel and steer the yacht for a while, or learn some seamanship. Your skipper and crew will be delighted to show you the ropes.
When you charter a yacht with a captain and crew, where you go and the pace of your holiday, is still entirely up to you. When you first get on-board, you can sit down with your skipper and some charts of the beautiful Greek islands. Enjoy a bottle of wine and have a good chat. Your skipper knows the sailing area well and he can suggest some good places to go. You could visit a different island every day if you wish to.
Your skipper will take care of all the paperwork with the port authorities, before your departure. It is then only a short hop from one island to the next. A yacht charter holiday is more about the holiday than the sailing. There are many islands in the Ionian. Some of them are uninhabited, and so there are plenty of beautiful and interesting places to visit. You can drop anchor in one of the many quite bays. Some of which have no access by road. So you can swim privately in the crystal clear waters.
You can windsurf, snorkel, scuba dive, or explore the beaches. Or if you wish, just relax with a book and an ice cold one. On-board a yacht you have a grandstand view of the Islands from the sea. You will see the mountains and hillsides covered in Olive and Cypress trees. There is no other way to see the variety of unspoiled islands and bays, like you can on a charter yacht
In the beautiful Greek Islands, many of the islands are uninhabited by humans. Because there are no humans, they are home to rare seals, and other marine life. Some of the quite beaches in the Greek islands, the turtles swim ashore at night to lay their eggs. While you cruise between the islands, there is a good chance you will also be visited by dolphins. They love to play in the bow wave of the boat, you can almost reach out and touch them. If you want to see the marine life in its natural environment this is the best way to do it. See my blog, Flora and Fauna.
Bring the Children
A yacht charter holiday is a good choice for families with young children, as there is lots of fresh stimulus for them. It will also be a great adventure which they will never forget. We can provide them with life jackets. We can also take you ashore in the speed boat with them, so they can paddle and play on the sandy beaches till their hearts are content. Gentle afternoon breezes make the Ionian Islands one of the safest areas in the world. See my blog on Children love boats.
Wine and Dine
Start your day with a refreshing swim before breakfast. Your hostess knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and she will serve you a breakfast to set you up for it. You can go ashore at each port you visit, for some retail therapy or site seeing. Enjoy some of the local hospitality in the waterfront bars and Tavern’s In the evening you can choose either a BBQ on board in a quiet bay under the stars, or wine and dine at one of the many local tavern’s, ashore. At the end of the day, you will retire to the comfort of your cabin. A light sea breeze will help to keep you cool, and the gentle rocking of the boat will aid your untroubled sleep. You may think that chartering a yacht is only for the rich and famous.
