Our flexible itineraries give our experienced skippers the opportunity to showcase all the hidden gems you’re looking for, we follow the desires of the group and cater the sailing experience to provide each group a quality journey while on board. While in the Southern Cyclades, stroll through the "most elegant square in Greece" in Syros. Head out on an optional all-day adventure with your fellow shipmates and skipper as you discover the best Naxos has to offer: the Temple of Dimitra, a microbrewery, views of Mt Zeus, and a meal at a local tavern. Uncover the beauty of the Venetian ruins in Paros before going cave exploring in Antiparos. While on Ios, relax on famous Magganari beach and don't forget to visit Homer's tomb. Walk and hike your way through the trails and paths of Sifnos before stopping at a local ceramic workshop. No trip is complete without wandering around the breathtaking cliffside city of Hora, then enjoy cocktails while the sun sets over the whitewashed buildings that scatter the landscape.

Visit the stone lion on Kea and make sure to stop in at a family-owned silver shop before watching the sunset. Kythnos offers a special treat of seeing the sunrise while soaking in local hot springs. A favourite among travellers is a stopover in Hydra. Take a local “taxi” (donkey ride) to see the sights of this charming island where there are no cars allowed. It’s not hard to see why Hydra has inspired painters and writers the world over. Gaze at the churches and temples of Aegina, immersing yourself in history.
