This ancient route will take us along the Saronic Islands, where we will sail through mountainous islands, turquoise coves and hopefully spot some dolphins! We will discover ancient Greek temples, wild bays where we can anchor during the night and dive early in the morning. We will fill the afternoons by walking through small towns and villages where we dine freshly caught seafood, with our tables in the cobbled streets that already contemplate thousands of years of history.
As our journey begins and ends in Athens, there is the possibility of further expanding this sailing holiday in the Saronic Islands by visiting the birthplace of many famous philosophers and thinkers.
Note: we are faithful to the true spirit of navigation, therefore, we plan to scale up the wind and climate. Our trips are not a planned itinerary that is always the same. This means that the exact order of the scales may be different from the one presented below, but definitely just as interesting! In our opinion, this fact only makes these vacations more pleasant!

Plan
The boarding takes place the first day at 16:00 hours at the Kalamaki Marina in Alimos. The last day the disembarkation takes place at 9:00 in the same port.

LEARN TO NAVIGATE
During this week you can also learn to navigate. We developed the didactic program of the Royal Yachting Association: RYA Competent Crew. A totally practical training!

MARINA KALAMAKI, ATHENS
We begin our sailing adventure near the cradle of philosophy and democracy. Arrival is easy as our marina, Marina Alimos in Kalamaki, is only 45 minutes from the airport and can be reached by taking a single bus. The marina is a bit far from the city, so if you want to take some time to discover this great multifaceted city, it is recommended that you arrive one or two days before.

We plan to supply the yacht, meet with the crew and leave the marina as soon as possible to navigate the same day of check-in.

STOP IN EGINA
On the side of the docks of the island of Aegina, we will stop at a small bay. From there, it takes about 30 minutes to climb the hill to the Temple of Aphaea, which for 2,500 years has saved the views of the island. It's like traveling back to the time of ancient Greece. On the way, we will stop to eat at a local restaurant and enjoy the shade. That night we will spend relaxing, entering the navigation mode and getting to know each other.

NAVIGATION TOWARDS POROS
Extremely beautiful to see from the sea, and even more surprising as you walk through its narrow and winding streets to the hill on which it is built. After mooring our yacht on the seafront, we passed through a maze of beautiful old houses stacked on top of each other to reach the top of the hill just in time for the sunset. On the way back down we find a cozy restaurant and after a wonderful meal we will enjoy the nightlife along the promenade. Our yachts are never too far ...

THE ISLAND OF HIDRA
Hydra is pure magic. The tiny port offers shelter, but not for many ships, so we'll arrive early. And that will give us time to really enjoy. We spent the afternoon walking through the streets, enjoying good food with stunning views from a "Sunset Bar" and one of the best sunsets in all of Greece.

It is definitely one of the highlights of the trip! This will be one of your favorite memories of sailing in Greece. A curious fact is that due to the prohibition of vehicles with wheels, all transport is done with donkeys!

NAVIGATING TO EPIDAVROS
When anchoring in Palaia Epidavros, a small town, we won not only a beautiful mooring place, but also an access to an ancient amphitheater. It was built in the 4th century BC. and it is located in the heart of the forest. This amphitheater is part of a much larger sanctuary and has incredible acoustics. Words whispered from the clay court are heard between the 54 seat levels.

LAST STOP, AGISTRI
The pure blue water welcomes us as we approach the island of Agistri. It is a fairly small island but very green. There are only three small settlements, but our goal is to find a wild bay and sail together on the yachts. As there is not much light pollution, we slept under a blanket of stars and a clearly visible Milky Way. It's time to relax, cook and share meals, enjoy music, do night snorkeling and simply enjoy nature.

RETURN TO ATHENS
We put an end to this wonderful journey by navigating to where we started this route, Marina Kalamaki. The last day we disembark at 9:00 in the morning to be able to return to our homes.

STOPS TO EAT
Every day our goal is to stop at the bays for a quick lunch and a little snorkeling. We launch the anchor and enjoy the beauty of nature that surrounds us. We eat what we cook on board, swim in clear water, sunbathe and relax. And if you wish, you can climb the mast to get a very cool photo! Then, another browsing session awaits you!

Additional information
The boat for meals and fuel will be common and will oscillate at around € 100 per person per week.

The cabins are always shared (each cabin has a capacity for 2 people).

The main language of the employers is English. Other crew members may speak other languages, including Spanish, but this must be taken into account when communicating with the crew.

There may be variations with respect to the ship's capacity.
In addition, the model of the boat can change depending on the number of people targeted to the crossing. The yachts we sail are always young, from 5 to 10 years old (produced after 2008) and of good quality brands: Bavaria, Benetau, Sun Odyssey, Hanse, ..., therefore, classified as 'comfort class' . We are always choosing yachts for the best quality / price ratio, therefore, we chose lengths of 40-50 feet.
