How much?

Not much at all. You will get a private sailing cruise starting from 640 euro/day for the whole boat. What you see below is the sailboat price. In order to get the rates per person, all you need to do is divide the rates shown above to the number of persons in your party. For example a group of 8 interested in a 1 day trip in May - season C - will pay 930 euro per boat thus 880euro / 8 persons = only 110 euro per person for a full day on board your private sailboat.

If you find a few friends to join you...you can enjoy the best day of your holiday.

We are trying to make sailing accessible to everybody! So for couples and small groups (up to 4 persons) we have prepared discounted prices as you can see below by selecting the size of your group. Because spending a day at sea is a unique experience that nobody should miss...

We'll propose a few options- but the final decision is yours (with respect to the weather conditions).
    • Once we drop the anchor you can decide how you want to relax: sunbath on the foredeck? grab a mask and a snorkel and discover the underwater magic, walk and explore some pitoresque villages?
    • For the ones that never snorkeled before ­ no worries - we'll provide instructions on how to use the equipment and snorkeling techniques.
    • Lay back and relax some more or set sails to a new destination - your choice.
    • In the afternoon we'll have a relaxed sail back to Athens.

    But remember: the boat is YOURS for the day to decide what you get out of your sailing trip.

    You can anchor for a swim and lunch, you can swim, snorkel, walk the island or go sightseeing.
