IONIAN SAILING CLIENT COMMENTS and REVIEWS
We've just returned from a fantastic weeks course with Sail Ionian. After a great weeks sailing with Sail Ionian onboard Calypso in the summer we decided to return for the RYA day skipper course for myself and my husband and the competent crew course for our kids. We had a fantastic week onboard Susan we learned so much as a family and really enjoyed every aspect of the course. The standard of the boats, the training we received and the professionalism of the Sail Ionian team is second to none! Thanks again Sail Ionian we'll see you next year!!
Everyone at Sail Ionian from booking to the end of holiday drinks excels. The boats are immaculate and any issues are quickly sorted. Sailing in mid October is great with plenty of space to moor, tavernas pleased to see you, warm sea for swimming, lots of sunshine but could have been a little more wind. We have chartered from Sail Ionian for many years yet still found new places to visit as well as some old favourites.
This is our third year (return) to Sail Ionian - again faultless administration and superb quality of the staff and yachts. We had a bumpy start with the weather which was very unusual for the Ionian Islands, Di came to the rescue with some foul weather jackets as it is one of those items we don't pack going to Greece! The staff are cheerful, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The yachts are spotless and with the package they provide on arrival is just enough to get you started and on your way. I look forward to booking next years holiday. I have and would recommend to anyone - you will not be disappointed.
ust returned from a wonderful sailing holiday in the Ionian. Despite the 36 hrs electrical storms & 37kn gusts which were all good for the experience, we had a great time. The Company were by far the best charter company I have experienced & really look after the boats. We wanted for nothing except for some wind! All very laid back but efficient & all staff were extremely helpful & friendly. Will certainly be using them again.

After a superb holiday with Sail Ionian earlier in the year, we needed little persuasion to grab a late season week with them from which we have just returned. We took along some friends and they are now committed Sail Ionian fans, and we have all booked for next year already. The staff are friendly and efficient, the boats are superbly equipped and maintained and we would not now consider any other charter company in the area. This is the standard all others must try and measure up to.
Very pleased with the whole package for our week in Greece. From the booking procedures, to hand over of the yacht to the end of the week it was all fabulous. The yacht was spotless and we had no issues at all the whole week. Very well equipped but we would have liked to have an auto helm as there was only two of us the yacht. Definitely would recommend and use again.
My husband and I decided to learn to sail after celebrating our silver wedding. We wanted to learn with an RYA approved school and do the Competent Crew course so I researched various schools based in the UK and abroad. One company above all stood out from any other and that company was Sail Ionian.Our week on Susan was just superb. Our instructor Steve was more than professional, he was meticulous in every aspect of our course as well as being really motivating. Sail Ionian really is a superb company, I cannot think of any aspect of our week which I could find fault with. We will be booking further holidays with them as they not only offer RYA courses but also bareboat and skippered charters both in Greece and through their sister company Sail Grenadines in the Caribbean. Many thanks to everyone at Sail Ionian for a fabulous week. You really are a super bunch to sail the seas with!
We had a fantastic week on 'Shortbread'. I was proud to be sailing on a Sail Ionian boat compared to some of the other charter boats we saw in the harbours. Yacht was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Weather was changeable during the week, but the boat was a pleasure to sail in the sun or rain. This group of islands is a superb area to sail in, with many great harbours and bays, and as a novice skipper provided just the right balance of different experiences for me. We had a S.I. skipper for two days who was very patient and taught us new techniques well. I'm sure we will visit again and if we do we will certainly book with Sail Ionian again. All the staff were so friendly and professional, at the boat show in the UK as well as in Greece.
When your boat is your home for two weeks it's very important that it's comfortable and safe, with every detail thought about. This company is fantastic, professional and serious about giving great service. The staff are well trained and work long hours. We didn't have any issues at all with our boat but I know that if we did it would have been dealt with fast. On talking with other clients who had years of experience with Sail Ionion we learnt of their fantastic professional and fast service in cases where things happened ( and with boats we know 'things'-happen) We will definitely be going back.
My husband and I have just returned from a training week with sail Ionian. I did competent crew David did day skipper. Our skipper was very good and covered the syllabus thoroughly. He also had lots of patience !.
The yacht was very well kept and had everything you could possibly need on board Including lots of safety equipment
The staff were very friendly and always there if we needed help.
We liked it so much we've booked to go back next year
