Adventure offered by Carlos y Aroa

10 days
Available in English
On this trip we are going to spend a few days sailing through some of the Ionian Islands, and then cross on a 300-mile nautical journey to the city of Catania, on the Island of Sicily.
An experience that combines coastal navigation and high altitude navigation. During the journey we learn how to plan the journey, design the route taking into account different factors, study the weather and decide the best days to cross. We learn about the operation of the boat, adapt it to the environmental conditions and optimize sailing, habitual maneuvers during voyages and safety on board.
Including a nautical journey in your sailing vacation is a perfect opportunity to learn and gain experience and safety in sailing.
A trip where the best ingredients are mixed to make it an unforgettable experience. Anchor in remote coves, enjoy incredible landscapes and crystalline waters, surround yourself with nature, get to know Greek culture, history and gastronomy, visit fishing villages and inland villages with a more rural character, discover fortresses and remains of Venetian castles, and enjoy of a nautical journey of about 3 days, in which we will sail continuously day and night.

  • Plan
    The first day is the day of embarkation. We will be on the Island of Kefalonia. You can board from 3pm. We will sleep in the port or anchorage area where we are and we will decide the plan for the next day among the whole group.

    The first days will be to familiarize ourselves with the ship, with navigation and life on board, and to visit some of the Greek Islands in the Ionian Sea.

    We will sail through the islands of Kefalonia and Ithaca, and at the end of the trip we will take a journey that will take us to the Italian island of Sicily.

    We will cross to Sicily according to the weather forecast. At the beginning of the trip, we will study the weather and see which are the best days to cross and make the journey.

    Trip Highlights:

    *Island of Kefalonia: enjoy days at sea and in its incredible turquoise blue waters, stroll through its coastal towns, visit castles, lighthouses and monasteries. Enjoy the best views of the islands from the highest point, at 1628m in the Ainos National Park. Take an excursion to its inland towns to immerse yourself in the most rural life, or visit the Melissani cave lake.

    *Ithaca Island: the mythical island of Ulysses. It offers hiking trails and wonderful beaches, some of them only accessible by sea. It is worth a visit to Ithaca for all its surroundings and its incredible landscapes.

    *Nautical voyage of 300 miles where we will learn to plan the voyage, study the weather, sailing, navigation guards and maneuvers typical of the voyage.

    *Catania: The city of Catania is located on the east coast of the Italian island of Sicily. Built at the foot of the Etna volcano, the largest in Europe. It was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. In Catanaia, we have a lot to see. Immerse ourselves in its history and culture, and visit its many monuments that take us back to its past. Its Cathedral, the Roman amphitheater, its markets, the Ursido Castle and a multitude of baroque palaces that we find in its streets.

Other information
*TRIP ITINERARY: We depend on the weather and we go with the wind, so the final itinerary is decided based on the weather and the preferences of the group.

* MEALS ON BOARD. Food expenses will be divided among all crew members. We will make sure that all the provisions are ready before leaving. Food costs are usually around 15 euros per person per day.

*EXPERIENCE. It is not necessary that you have previous experience in navigation, just a desire to learn and enjoy this adventure.

*LIFE ON BOARD. The tasks on board are collaborative. Guards, kitchen, order and cleaning is organized among all.

    It has been a unique experience, we have learned about navigation and visited incredible places that you can only access by boat. An alternative and active vacation to get to know other places and cultures, avoiding tourist sites. The boat was spotless and very comfortable to live in. Aroa and Carlos are very nice, I will repeat
