  • Who decides of the itinerary?
  • We do not have a fixed itinerary, to the contrary we try to input personal parameters for each individual group. Hence, on first day, together with your captain with the week's windforecast in hand, you will select the most suitable set of stopovers.

     
  • Can I customize the listed itineraries?
  • Of course. The beauty of a sailing cruise is to experience a unique voyage tailored to your wishes. However bear in mind that sailing is about taking the wind into account. Your captain will advice you on the best sailing route options in order to let you get the best of the Greek islands.

                FAQ

    How do I get to Paros?
     
    A. If you're landing in Athens, there are two options:
     
    Option 1.
    Catch a flight for Paros with Aegean Airlines. Flight duration: 30 minutes. One way fare: around 90 euros.
    Option 2. Catch a ferry from either Piraeus harbour (45 minutes by cab or 1 hour and 15 minutes by shuttle bus X96 from the airport) or Rafina harbour (35 minutes by cab from the airport).
    Trip duration: between 2 hours and 45 minutes to 4 hours, depending on the ferry. One way fare: between 25 euros and 40 euros, depending on the company. Ferry schedules on www.danae.gr
     
    B. If you’re landing in Mykonos
     
    Catch a ferry from Mykonos. Trip duration: 40’. One way fare: between 25 euros and 40 euros, depending on the company. Ferry schedules on www.danae.gr

     
    What day of the week does the cruise start?
     
    From mid June to beginning of September boarding takes places on Fridays at 11 am in Paroikia's yacht harbour in Paros. You will weigh anchor as soon as you are ready! Disembarkation takes place on Thursdays at 5 pm. If you need to catch a ferry or a plane earlier, it is no problem, your skipper will bring the boat back to her base on time. Outside this period boarding day is flexible.
     
    Do you offer short sailing charters?
     
    In July and August our charters are on a week based but outside this period a 5 or 6 days charter is possible.
     
    Is the itinerary up to the captain or do we have a say?
     
    Numerous routeing options are available when departing from Athens or from Paros island. There are many must-to-see islands such as Mykonos, Sifnos, Amorgos, Delos, Ios etc and many choices of alternative itineraries too! On boarding day, your captain will sit and discuss with you, with the week’s weather forecast in hand, customizing precisely your route, by keeping in mind your preferences but also your comfort while sailing.
     
    Which months have the best chances for sailing to Santorini?
     
    One may sail to Santorini almost at any time. Getting back from Santorini, the southernmost island of the Cyclades, can sometimes be an issue when one has to beat against the prevailing northerlies. Not all catamarans are optimized for windward sailing, so your best bet is a powerful monohull like our Beneteau 50’. Should you choose to sail with us in September, you’re hedging your bet, as that particular month features a high percentage of light, variable winds, as opposed to July and August famous for their relentless northerlies.
     
    How do I figure costs and expenses?
     
    Fuel, water, port dues and end cleaning will cost you in total for a week approximately 240 euros. Dinner in a Greek taverna costs about 14 euros per person (local wine, beer or soda included).
     
    How to provision the yacht?
     
    You will find within 150 meters from our boats in Paroikia’s harbour (Paros’ main settlement), a supermarket, 2 bakeries, a greengrocer, a bottle shop, a fishmonger etc. The supermarket will gladly lend you someone to push your shopping trolleys to the yacht. As we usually have dinner ashore, provisions are chiefly intended for breakfasts and lunches. Shall the need arise, you may resupply in any of the other islands.
     
    Do we go into marinas at night?
     
    In July and August, when harbors get very busy in the Greek islands, yachts generally anchor out in the evenings, unless they need to refill their fuel or water tanks or if they claim a slip before 15:00. Outside this period it is usually not a problem to go into marina at night. Each of our yachts carry a tender or dinghy with an outboard motor, sort of the taxi for getting around. If you wish to dock at a port for the day or evening, the dockage fees are not covered by the charter fee and are at the charterer's expense.
     
    Is bed linen provided?
     
    Yes we provide with all bed linen (sheets, pillow cases, blankets) as well as bathroom towels. You just need to bring with your own beach/deck towel.
     
    Is there a coffee maker on the boat?
     
    The yacht is equipped with a plunger type coffee maker (a.k.a. French press). This system is convenient, safe and uses no electricity. Coffee tastes excellent!
     
    How large is the refrigerator?
     
    The electric refrigerator on the Punch 41 catamaran has a capacity of 35 USgal while in the cockpit there's also a 5 USgal icebox for drinks. You may shop bulky and heavy items (like bottled water) in Paros as the grocery is handily close by, but you can resupply perishables (ie fruit, vegie, yoghurt) in almost any island.
     
    Do you carry snorkeling gear on board?
     
    Yes, we do carry a score of masks & snorkels as well as flippers of various sizes.
     
    Is the boat equiped with a watermaker?
     
    Yes the Beneteau 50 catamaran is fitted with a watermaker. The watermaker (Reverse Osmosis) is a high-end equipment producing fresh water and popular on board superyachts. Now you no longer have to frequently dock into congested ports for filling up water and can instead anchor in beautiful coves untouched by tourism or development. And all this without increasing the cost of renting the boat!
