Sailing the Greek islands on board your private yacht!
Sailboat charter Greece: spoil yourself with an amazing mini cruise!
Day sailing + snorkeling activities: enjoy the best day of your vacation!
Athens is Greece´s main gay location with gay bars, clubs, coffee shops, saunas and gyms and this is where our sailing adventure also begins.
Many people choose Greece as their holiday destination as it offers a wide range of activities for every person and an incredible diversity of islands and beaches. The last years in Greece a new kind of tourism, the gay and lesbian tourism, has became popular especially the Greek islands.
As you probably already know, Mykonos island is the top gay destination in Greece and probably the most popular gay resort in the world (with a great variety of gay and gay friendly clubs and bars on the island, and a lot of gay beaches and gay hotels). However, Mykonos is just one of the many options for gay and lesbian holidays in Greece - no matter what Greek islands you decide to sail to, you'll be delighted to find a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.

My husband and I had a terrific time sailing with Radu and Adriana for a 7 days! From the very first communication with Adriana to our departing hugs, Adriana and Radu made our trip easy, fun and unforgettable!! Upon arrival we found the boat, The Albatross, clean and tidy. We discussed options for our sailing trip route and off we went on our week-long adventure. At each destination, Adriana and Radu offered suggestions on things to do and places to eat to ensure we maximized our time on each island. The recommendations were always spot on! Radu and Adriana had snorkeling gear (masks, flippers, noodles) and a stand up paddleboard and made sure we had plenty of time to use them when we stopped in beautiful private coves. Adriana and Radu went above and beyond to make our trip special! They are professional but friendly and fun. They are relaxed and easy-going, the prefect hosts for gay and straight travelers alike. Traveling with Radu and Adriana is the perfect way to explore the Greek islands and create a truly one-of-a-kind vacation!

Such an amazing experience - the stuff dreams are made of!
If you only visit Greece once, sail. Sail into the harbors of the old villages and truly experience their breathtaking beauty. Imagine what it was like hundreds or thousands of years ago... So much history and beauty awaits! If you only sail once, sail with Captain Radu and the lovely Adriana aboard the Albatross! We had the honor of meeting them and spending a week on board. It was the best vacation decision we've ever made.
Radu is an amazing captain - I (a skeptical and nervous soul who has never sailed) felt immediately comfortable and confident in his ability. It was clear that we had the best skipper in all of Greece (ha!), seriously though, I am so grateful we chose to sail with him. Adriana is so much more informative than I had anticipated. Every time we docked she recommended things to do, told us a bit about the history, and gave us the general lay of the land. Most importantly, she told us where to eat. Eat exactly where Adriana tells you to eat and you will have experienced the best food that island has to offer. Not to mention the dreamy ambiance of the restaurants...
As I mentioned I am a very skeptical and cautions person. Adriana made the whole booking experience smooth, she replied promptly and explained in detail how the process works. Had she not been such a professional, I wouldn't have booked at all - we would've likely stayed at a hotel in Santorini or something like that. I am forever grateful that we stumbled upon Blue Water Sailing and chartered a private yacht! (I would've never before even considered it was possible)
We booked the first week of October. The weather was perfect and the water was about 75F, nice and warm. The ports were less busy and we got to experience towns like Hydra without being surrounded by tons of other tourists. Thank you so much Adriana and Radu!

The best way to do the Greek Islands!!!
Adriana and Radu are great at what they do. They are so extremely knowledgeable about sailing the islands and the best spots to see. We traveled with a group of 6 friends and from the moment we stepped aboard we felt incredible comfortable and in great hands. For many of our group the experience of life aboard a sailboat was a new experience and took a day or two of getting used to but for all of us it was one of the best trips of our lives. The boat is very well maintained and comfortable. This is a beautiful sailboat that is great for a family or smaller group of friends to travel on. The cabins are small like on most sailboats of this size but they perfectly fine and with views like these who wants to stay below in a cabin? We were on the boat for a week and not only experienced about 8 islands but our trip was tailored to the sights and activities that we wanted to do. Radu and Adrianna are very sweet and respectful of giving passengers their space but I encourage anyone who charters the boat to invite them to join you for a meal or glass of wine and get to know these two lovely people. Don't hesitate and book now!!

The most amazing week onboard Albatross with Radu and Adriana exploring some of the Cyclades and Saronic Islands. From the very first contact the emails were so extremely detailed and informative we knew right away we found the right crew - miles ahead of the others we contacted. Perfectly 5-star spot on Adriana! Stepping onboard the Albatross we felt very welcome and at home from the start. Out at sea there was not a single moment we did not feel perfectly safe. Radu, your calm command of the vessel and safety above all approach is truly admirable. How well you work together as a team is an inspiration and was so reassuring. Thanks for all the information and suggestions - this made our time off the boat exploring so much easier. Overall, you exceeded all expectations - we could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable week! Wonderful memories we will cherish always! Can’t wait to return next year and explore more islands with you.
