From Athens, set sail to explore the Peloponnese during a week. Navigate around Egine, Hydra or Kea according to your desires! This region is full of mythical places you can visit, wonderful wild creeks and beaches that are just waiting for you! You must count around 4-5 am of navigation from one place to another. Thus it is possible to make a lot of amazing stopovers.
You'll meet with you skipper at the port of Athens on Saturday at 2 pm. He will offer you different possibilities for the itinerary. You'll determine the program together considering your expectations and of course the weather conditions.
Whatever route you choose, we recommend you begin with a small tour around Saunion. Located in the southwest of Athens, this cape extends over 45 km above the Aegean Sea and is known in particular for its temple dedicated to Poseidon. There, you will admire a fabulous sunset! It's also a national park in which you can go for some beautiful walks.
Then, you will stop to Tselevinia, for a beautiful anchorage. It is a great stop on the road for Hydra. Hydra is an island of the Saronic Gulf which used to be one of biggest commercial ports of the Mediterranean Sea. You will admire its mountain ranges which drowns in the sea. The small port, full of charm, deserves a little stop! You will then head for Ermioni, small authentic village located just in front of the island of Hydra. This hidden paradise is still preserved from mass tourism. Go and have dinner in a typical tavern, the greeks are very welcoming, which makes the experience even better. The last step will be Poros island. It's well known for its green and quiet landscapes, its small port and its amazing beaches. Finally, it will be time for you to head back to Athens.
After Sounion, you will be headed to the archipelago of the Cyclades. Kea will be your first stop there. This island offers very nice landscapes with its green valleys, its olive trees, almond trees and other fruiterers. You will also find there big beaches, ideal to relax! The next stop will be Syros, the capital of the Cyclades. Although it has a huge cultural heritage, the island doesn't have that many tourists. The third stop: Kythnos. White and blue typical houses, fine sand beaches, turquoise blue water... a real little piece of heaven! You will then head back to the Saronic Gulf by navigating around the island of Egine. Its inhabitants always lived with the sea: fishermen, sailors, boat manufacturers... Then it will be time to return towards Athens.
For this third and last route you will go towards the south of the Euboea Island. It is the second biggest island of the Aegean Sea. You will reach the famous Cavo d'Oro (golden cape). The beaches of this island are stunning. You will pursue then your cruise by navigating to Rafina, the second port of the region which will allow you then to join the island of Kea, in the Cyclades.
Whatever route you choose, the stopovers selected by the skipper knows the region very well and will know how to take you off the beaten track.
You willreturn to Athens at the end of the day Friday. Spend a last night on board and you will land on Saturdays morning.
