Day By day

Day 1 | Friday 

Athens, Marina Zeas (Piraeus) – Kea
Join us – and your fellow explorers – at Marina Zea in Athens for a welcome drink. Today we start our adventure. First stop: Cape Sounion to visit the Temple of Poseidon. Next up, the short sail across to Kea for dinner and exploration before we set sail again, this time to Delos. Overnight at sea.

Day 2 | Saturday 

Delos – Mykonos
A day of contrasts: wake up in sacred Delos, the mythological birthplace of revered ancient Greek God, Apollo. The entire island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one that we are proud to have pioneered the road to tourism to. Then onto cosmopolitan Mykonos – stopping en route for your first chance to dive from boat to sea. In Mykonos, the afternoon, evening and night are yours. Overnight in Mykonos: join us back on board after a night of partying with the jetset.

Day 3 | Sunday 

Relax with coffee and breakfast on deck this morning as we sail from Mykonos to Santorini. We know you’ll fall in love with this picturesque, volcanic island. Yes, the famous blue-domes overlooking the caldera are here, but so are archaeological sites, traditional villages, and more. Let us show you Santorini’s secrets on an optional tour.. Overnight sail to Crete.

Day 4 | Monday 

Rethymnon, Crete
The day is yours in Crete. We’ll arrive early and leave late – how you spend the time in between is up to you. Perhaps you’ll take a wine tour, an archaeological excursion, learn about Cretean mythology? Tell us what you want to see and do and we’ll make it happen. Overnight at sea.

Day 5 | Tuesday 

Ready. Steady. Jump! This morning is another chance to dive into those famous Aegean waters as we drop anchor on our way to Kythira. This lesser-known island is quickly gaining popularity; now is your chance for laid-back exploration. Ask our crew for restaurant recommendations in the main town of Chora. Overnight in Kythira.

Day 6 | Wednesday 

Monemvasia – Nafplion
We’ll depart early for the medieval, fortified town of Monemvasia. The stories here are endless, and come to life via the uniquely preserved Byzantine and Venetian architecture. In the early afternoon we’ll depart for Nafplion, with a swim stop on the way. Here, explore the narrow streets of the old quarter at leisure. Overnight in Nafplion.

Day 7 | Thursday 

Nafplion – Hydra – Marina Zea- Athens
A short drive inland from Nafplion is Mycenae: a cradle of Greek civilization and home to the mythological kingdom of Agamemnon. Join us for an optional tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Come afternoon, we set sail for small yet historical Hydra; an island that enchanted the likes of Chagall and Picasso. End the day with our signature Captain’s Farewell Dinner as we sail back to Marina Zea.

Day 8 | Friday 

Athens – Marina Zeas (Piraeus)
Breakfast on board before disembarkation. Though this adventure has come to an end, we hope to sea you on another soon!

In case of severe weather conditions our expertly designed routes are adjusted ensuring your safety & comfort by applying our rich marine knowledge, garnered since 1949.
Stay flexible – Adventure on.


Kythira: A hidden gem

Kythira is an island of Greece, historically part of the Ionian Islands. It lies opposite the eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula. In Ancient Greek Mythology, Kythira was considered to be the island of celestial Aphrodite, the Goddess of love.

Greek Night under Santorini island

Our Greek-night dinner is followed by the famous and much-loved Greek night on board. Greek dance is a very old tradition, being referred to by authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Lucian. There are different styles and interpretations from all of the islands and surrounding mainland areas. Each region formed its own choreography and style to fit in with their own ways. For example, island dances have more of a different smooth flow to them. Be tempted and follow the rhythm!

Hydra’s quaint port

Hydra Island, one of the most unspoiled and interesting of the Greek islands, is a small rocky island in the Argosaronic Gulf, south east out of the Athens port of Piraeus and within sight of the southern Peloponnese mainland. It’s very cosmopolitan, safe and one of the easiest of the Greek islands to access. Best of all, the entire island is a preserved national monument and has retained all its 17th & 18th century charm and quaintness.
