Sailing the Aegean Sea
Best choice for an unforgettable holiday
Best Times: June - October
Is there a better way to explore the Aegean sea than by boat? All you need to choose is where you would like to go. Book a sailing trip with us to take you for island hopping in the Sporades or Cyclades area.
Sailing the Aegean is an idyllic voyage in crystal clear blue waters, ancient history and rich culture. Chartering on a private yacht in the Aegean sea of Greece is all about relaxation and pleasure. Whether the gentle sea breezes that rarely get above a Force 5 or the stunning scenery and sea, you will be soothed by all you see and feel in this stunning part of the Greek Mediterranean. The area is the the cradle of western civilization and one of the world's premier cruising and yachting regions because of its numerous anchorages for sailing yachts, and historical sites.
Where in July and August on the Aegean the sailing can verge on the extreme due to the meltemi, you can comfortably sail out to sea on the Aegean on most days. All crew members will enjoy sailing on Iris and the long lunches with the local cuisine on the major islands of the region, while the children will love the beaches and walks through the islands.
Here are some of the best sailing itineraries in the island groups for Northern Sporades, Cyclades, and Argosaronic!
Hop on board Iris for some sailing fun!
Volos - Sporades
The Northern Sporades are an archipelago along the east coast of Greece in the Aegean Sea. They consist of 24 islands, four of which are permanently inhabited: Alonnisos, Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros.
Dense vegetation, rocky landscapes, and pure blue seas: a uniquely alternative destination.
Sail to Skiathos to discover its hidden beauties. Did you know that the island of Alonissos is home to the Mediterranean Monk Seal (: monachus monachus), one of the biggest seal species?
Are you a movie fan? Trace the paths of the exciting film “Mamma Mia”! Yes, the amazing chapel on the rocks (where the wedding ceremony took place) really exists! It’s “Saint Ioannis Chapel” in Skópelos!
Come island-hopping in a paradise island complex with IRIS!
Lavrion - Cyclades
Cyclades are undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations in the world. They offer visitors not only beautiful beaches, but also give them beautiful views, ancient architecture, Greek cuisine and culture. In addition to the beauty of the Cycladic Islands, pretentious sailors enjoy the winds of high season. Therefore, when sailing on these islands, you need advanced sailing skills and a lot of experience. We have prepared a 7-day yacht charter route from Lavrio to make the most of these beautiful places.
Lavrion - Argosaronic
The Argosaronic Islands are known for their natural beauty, sandy beaches, the totally unspoiled and friendly small ports and peaceful anchorages. Long stretches of sandy beaches, fragrant pine forest, and rocky capes against a backdrop of brilliant sunshine and crystal blue water provide an infinite variety of scenic beauty.
Start your charter from Lavrion and experience a fantastic taste of what sailing we have to offer on our Bali 4.1 catamaran. After setting sail into the Saronic Gulf it is easy to forget that you are only a few hours away from the Mainland. Unspoiled islands like Aegina, Poros, Hydra, ancient temples and bustling towns all await you. Reliable winds and average daily sailing distances of around 25-30nm to the Saronic Gulf make Lavrion a great option for couples, groups and families alike.
