Join us in what is known as the sunniest part of Greece, this beautiful group of islands just off the coast of Turkey. Enjoy the crystal clear waters, lovely beaches, archaeological wonders, and incredible monuments. See the more cosmopolitan and historic towns of Rhodes and Kos as well as the smaller and more untouched islands nearby. At an average of 4 to 5 hours of sailing per day, there will be plenty of time for you to relax and discover all that these islands have to offer.


This experience is extremely laid back and flexible so you can spend your days how you choose. Mix time sailing with snorkelling, basking in the sun and exploring the less populated parts of the area before heading into town for a nice meal of local food. On this trip you will find that the skipper and the new people joining you on board love traveling and going on new adventures just as much as you do! The itinerary is not fixed and the plans are made according to the weather and winds just like real sailors should do!


This trip is unique because the skippers have a great focus on sustainable travel. We will limit plastics on board and collect plastic garbage as well as encourage the group to immerse themselves in the new cultures of these amazing places. Join us on an adventure where you will connect with nature and act like a local, respecting the Earth and the natives at each new spot we anchor. This wonderful experience will open your eyes to new cultures and you will leave it with new friends as well as a new outlook on travel.

LEARN TO SAIL
You will have the opportunity to really learn to sail on this trip. You will learn the curriculum of the RYA Competent Crew course on this adventure so you can be an active member on board!

KOS
We’ll have a great time walking around car-free pedestrian-friendly Kos, exploring cafes, taverns, restaurants and shops. Sandy beaches, turquoise waters, tree-lined wide roads, parks and vegetation make this a spectacular place to start our holiday. If we have time, we’ll explore beyond the town. And maybe we’ll set anchor near Kefalos, a lovely resort with beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters which has managed to keep a lot of its whitewashed house and narrow alley charm despite its popularity.

KALYMNOS
Also known as the “island of the sea sponge harvesters”, after WWII Kalymnos remained the only Greek sponge-harvesting industry supplying both domestic and international markets with sea sponges. An internationally known alternative tourism destination, it’s popular among climbers and boulderers all year long. Póthia, the capital and the port of Kálymnos is spread majestically on two hills, and there are a number of interesting old ruins to visit.

NISIROS
One of our favorite islands, Nisiros has a 3 kilometre wide active caldera in the middle. We’ll moor up in the lovely little town of Nisiros and rent scooters or a van in Paloi to go drive around the island and explore its volcanic centre. We’ll finish off our exciting day of adventure on land with some lovely seafood, chocolate cake, and/or ouzo!

TILOS
Ragged mountainscape, densely forested ranges and hilly vistas, Tilos is an amazing ecological park protected by international treaties. Megálo Chorió, the island’s capital, boasts imposing stone houses, narrow alleys, a very cute small port. The view from the medieval castle at the top of the hill will certainly take your breath away. Alternatively, a walk to Mikro Chorió leads to an impressive abandoned ghost town. Definitely worth exploring.

CHALKI
The capital of Chalki is built amphitheatrically above the crystal clear sea, preserving its noble beauty, its picturesque alleys and its unique architecture. It is known as of the prettiest neoclassical settlements of Greece! We could hike up to see the sunset over the harbour, or just hang out sitting in a café watching old men play chess.

RHODES
The largest of the Dodecanese, Rhodes lies close to the Turkish coasts. In ancient times, it was famous for one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Colossus, a giant statue of the god Helios that towered over the harbour. Today, Rhodes is famous for its more tranquil side – lovely beaches, lush landscape and traditional villages. If we have time and the winds are favourable, we can set sail for Lindos, which boasts superb beach coves and it is dominated by an imposing acropolis that overlooks the picturesque bay.

Return: Saturday 9:00

    I usually fly solo when traveling, and it never occurred to me to sign up for a package tour. But I took a gamble here and they exceeded my expectations. They have somehow figured out how to get adults to buy into a sincere spirit of group adventure and camaraderie without it ever feeling forced. And obviously, the locations are beautiful, the other people are engaging, the sailing is fun (you'll grow in confidence throughout the week), and it's clear that the Dominick and his team really care about the experience they are creating. You can easily do this trip alone, with friends, or with your significant other. I'm sure I'll sail with them again.

    Stop thinking about sailing with them... and just book it. You’ll love it!
    Your fellow crew members are a wonderful bunch – and we had the most laid-back skipper ever to roam the Med. The scenery is amazing and varied: you’ll moor-up in a port one night amongst super-yachts then drop anchor the following night in a nearly-deserted bay. You’ll learn so much if you’ve never sailed before, but it’s all really relaxed.
    I’m so glad I took the plunge – you will be too.
    Maybe see you out there one day soon...

    Badly organized trip, old boat not prepared with equipment for the entire crew and unprofessional skipper (untrustworthy, drinking durin the sailing, etc.).
    It could have been an excellent week, it's a pity.
