Since 1962 Archipel
team offers you a range of
self owned sailboats available for
charter in Greece, with first hand advice,
well maintained yachts in the hands of the same
captain throughout the season, meticulous follow-up and
a warm welcome. Too few to rent a whole boat? Consider our cabin charter holidays. All our tours combine fun sailing, swimming in secluded coves and discovering a different Greek island every day. So let's go sailing!
Taking the helm, relaxing in heavenly coves, diving from the boat, meeting dolphins at sea, hearing Greek islands stories from our skipper are unforgettable moments my friends and I shared during our 7 days cruise in Greece. Thank you Archipel, thank you George, our skipper! Corinne Yacht charter in the Greek islands in September
As promised, before our daily humdrum got hold of us, we share with you our comments about our cruise on board the catamaran Blue. The upstream organization was perfect, all our queries were swiftly answered by email, during the six months prior to our cruise. Of the 8 people in our group 5 had never set foot on a sailboat and all went well, thanks to the kindness and patience of our skipper Harris. Because daily hops did not exceed 4 hours, after sailing and swimming in desert coves, there was still plenty of time to go for walks on the islands we spent the night in. Syros and Sifnos delighted us, Mykonos a little less because of its overly touristic side. The Arhontariki restaurant in Syros was unforgettable: our skipper always advising us on where to enjoy local fare and local rates. Prices have increased in Greece (because of the crisis probably) but we could still dine at a reasonable cost. We all became addicted to Halloumi - the grilled Cypriot cheese- and Dakos salad. We shopped our groceries for onboard breakfasts and lunches prior leaving Paroikia, in 2 nearby stores. This chore did not take longer than three quarters of an hour, a member of the Archipel team (the boss himself!) helped us load the boat and gave us plenty of advice about the islands, including hints that are not found in guidebooks.
Weather wise the start of the cruise was calm and so we motored. Then the wind rose to the delight of the sailors among us, we were able to sail the catamaran for the last 3 days. Two of us felt a bit unwell at the beginning, but staying on deck and taking motion sickness tablets worked out well. Fuel costs were ultimately lower than what you estimated in your emails, probably because we were able to sail some of the time and did not overindulge with the air conditioning: so much the better!
So this is a well organized cruise that both revitalized and relaxed us. I wonder when we will ever be able to relive such a great adventure with our friends? Claire Catamaran charter in Greece in August 2018See this boat
We would like to thank the Archipel team for our exhilarating trip to Greece. We enjoyed the concept of cabin charter, the atmosphere was friendly but without too much proximity. We were 8 participants all told, each couple with its own private cabin and bathroom. The catamaran Pahi is so spacious that sometimes one thought to be on its own! We visited an island every day. It was love at first sight in Sifnos, we had a beachside dinner in scenic Vathi bay, our boat moored close by. A special word for our skipper Eric who never lost patience with us landlubbers and who took a sincere pleasure at introducing us to hidden coves, Greek dishes or local custom. Jeanne Claire and Patrick can only recommend you Archipel for this type of vacation in Greece! Jeanne Claire, Patrick Cabin charter cruise in the Cyclades islands in June
