Detailed description

Sailing in Athens: half-day sailing trip on the Athens Riviera

The sea is closer than you think: only half an hour from the city centre of Athens, the Saronic Gulf opens up an enchanting sailing area with good winds and interesting perspectives. While sailing in Athens, discover a world of azure blue sea, beautiful beaches and small islands. The 5-hour sailing trip on a modern yacht takes you along the Riviera of Athens, famous for its long sandy beaches, lush countryside and small seaside resorts. On board the sailing yacht you will experience a semi-private sailing trip with an experienced crew. You can help the skipper with the sailing or just watch and relax during the boat trip. South of the city, after a short drive, you will reach one of the hidden bays, perfect for swimming and snorkeling (equipment included). There you drop anchor and enjoy the beautiful coast of Athens, the sea and the sun away from the hustle and bustle.

The sailing trip on the Athens Riviera has another stop in store for you, which also leads to a quiet bay and makes you want to refresh yourself in the crystal clear water. Back on board you will enjoy a light lunch of Greek tapas and a matching wine (also water or soft drink) before the crew turns back to Athens. Sailing in Athens is an adventure and an enrichment for a city holiday. The Saronic Gulf offers some nice routes to see the Athens coast and some of the sights from the water. The most impressive thing about a sailing trip from Athens is the change from the urban landscape to the sound of the sea and sunbathing under sail. The Athens sailing trip is also suitable for families with children. The boat offers enough space for a family sailing trip.

The sailing trip in Athens is accompanied by an English-speaking skipper who has a lot of sailing experience and enjoys sharing it with you. If you are looking for some variety besides swimming and snorkelling, you can also catch a fishing rod in the crystal clear waters of the Saronic Gulf during the breaks (equipment included). After five hours under sail, you will return to the port of Athens in the early afternoon and leave the ship with new impressions.

As fine as Bolle

Our 5-person group had the sailor to themselves. Except for Ernst (who got a bit seasick) we all felt very comfortable. We were proud like Bolle - on our own yacht for 5 hours! We can tell you a lot about that!

Pieckfein wie Bolle

Unsere 5-Personen-Gruppe hatte den Segler für sich allein. Bis auf Ernst (der wurde ein bisschen seekrank) haben wir uns alle sauwohl gefühlt. Wir waren stolz wie Bolle - auf unserer eigenen Yacht für 5 Stunden! Da können wir noch lange was von erzählen!
