Your Skippered Yacht Charter to Santorini and Mykonos

Sailing Mykonos Santorini on board Albatross sail boat

Are you planning to visit Mykonos and Santorini and thinking what the best and most fun way is? A sailing holiday/ yacht charter would offer the opportunity to visit not only these 2 most well known Greek islands but also a multitude of other incredible places and a few beaten path destinations that are still mostly untouched by tourism.

And you will probably end up liking these even more than the two cosmopolitan ones that were on your bucket list. While traveling from Mykonos to Santorini (or from Santorini to Mykonos according to what direction you follow) you will be passing close to some magical places:

  • Naxos (and its landscapes, mountains and fertile valleys, history, temples).
  • Paros (and it’s incredibly pretty villages like Naousa, Lefkes and Paroikia).
  • Un-spoiled islands like Schoinoussa.
  • Ios (a lively town and party island).
  • Syros, the queen of the Cyclades and it's elegant town.
  • The idyllic Folegandros, just to name a few.

Naxos, Schoinoussa, Tinos and Folegandros (together with many other like Serifos, Sifnos, Kimolos, Milos) are just a few examples of typical Greek islands you might want to add to your itinerary to have an authentic experience enjoying their fantastic sandy beaches and whitewashed villages without the hustle and bustle and all the tourist crowds at more known places like Mykonos and Santorini.

Sometimes our guests wonder if they can sail to Mykonos and Santorini during their time on board Albatross.
The answer is : " Sure ... provided you have enough days on board to allow sailing that far out".

Sailing vacations (7 to 28 days)

Private yacht charter with skipper from Mykonos to Santorini and back !

details and rates


People planning a 2 week yacht charter need not to worry- there will be enough time to sail both to Mykonos and Santorini(plus another 10-11 islands in the Aegean archipelago) as you can see at 14 days itinerary.


Starting from our Athens base

However groups planning to spend only 1 week sailing in Greece should have in mind that due to the distance, a sailing trip like Athens - Mykonos - Santorini - Athens is not really feasible in such a short time on board. Basically you would spend most of the time at sea, with no time left to explore the islands, stop in a bay, swim or enjoy the places you arrive at since most of the time will be transferring from one place to the next. And as fun as sailing might be, nobody can enjoy a "touch and go trip" where you just reach and island and you have to depart immediately.

But no worries: if your program only allows a 7 day yacht charter, you can sail Athens- Mykonos and back (with respect to weather conditions) - for possible sailing routes you can check 7 days sailing itinerary.

Upon disembarkation you can get a plane (multiple connections daily Athens-Santorini) and get to Santorini in only 45 minutes and for only around 50-60euro. Get a hotel on the rim of the Caldera and all is set for your romantic escape. For schedule/rates of air tickets please see Do Hopwebsite.

Starting from our Mykonos base

Indulge yourself to the perfect sailing trip to Santorini! Lots of time for swimming and exploring, meals at delicious on shore taverns and anything you might dream of. The solution to explore the 2 most famous islands in Greece, plus another 4-5 in between, in just a week on board: embark at Mykonos and set sail for the adventure of a lifetime to popular Santorini as well as several off the beaten path island. Start right in the middle of the action -in the heart of the Cyclades - only a few hours away from so many amazing islands like Paros, Naxos, Syros etc.

Since many of our guests wish to visit both Santorini and Mykonos during a regular 7 day trip , the last years we have made special arrangements and set up a base in Mykonos as well in order to make all these dreams reality and be able to reach Santorini even during a regular 7 day trip. Please contact us for more details on hows / whats regarding your Mykonos - Santorini sailing adventure.

Reaching the embarkation point at Mykonos is extremely easy! Not only are there international flights landing at Mykonos airport (IATA code- JMK) but also getting from Athens to Mykonos is EXTREMELY easy. You can choose in between:

Please note that the ferry schedule are announced a couple of months before the travel date - but rest assured there will be different options from morning till evening. Some of the ferry routes are announced ahead of time so for the summer period some sails might be announced as early as now - you might try and check Viva Travelfor several of the options. And expect closer to the date more options/hours will become available as other companies decide to publish their schedule for the season.

Note :

Please inform us of your travel plans BEFORE booking so we inform you what and when is possible and also help you out with information on the easiest way of getting to the boat.

Due to logistics, after a trip has been booked, it will unfortunately no longer be possible to make such a major modifications on the embarkation point
