Full description

Sail along the Athenian Coast and experience its beauty on a sailboat cruise. Dive into the sparkling clear waters for a swim or snorkel, and soak in panoramic views before savoring some Greek food and wine on the vessel.

Meet your experienced crew and hop on the sailboat for a heart-filling experience sailing in the Saronic Gulf. Upon leaving the port, head towards Vouliagmeni Bay, past the Athenian Riviera, for your first swim stop.

Next, continue to your second swim stop located off the coast. There you will be served a selection of Greek appetizers and some local wine or refreshments. Learn the basics of sailing from your skipper or just sit and relax in the sun. Explore some hidden coves and drop an anchor in beautiful secluded bays where you will be able to enjoy a swim using the onboard snorkels, flippers, and goggles. If swimming is not your thing, then grab a fishing rod and try your luck with fishing.

In the meantime, you will be served some authentic Greek tapas and quality Greek wine before making your way back to the base for your return.

We went for a family day out, our kids are aged 5, 6, 11. They thoroughly enjoyed the day. Staff are very friendly/welcoming. The food was very nice. ( We are vegetarian and this wasn’t a problem.) They did have life jackets for the kids but we had packed our own ones for the holiday anyway (as we know they fit) The whole trip was very relaxed.

If you want to relax and have a well organised, cared for tour with 2 people that will show you, with passion and hospitality the coast of Athens? Look no further. We had a VERY pleasant memorable trip. Unfortunately it was ‘only’ 5 hours ;-). But a well spend 5 hours.

This was AMAZING!! Our crew was so helpful and welcoming during the trip and the swimming and food was some of the best we had in Greece. When we were booking, we were going through a lot of different options and this one stood out for the timing (morning/early afternoon) and length (half day) and it was perfect for us as it let us have a good morning then also have an evening in the city.
