Day Sailing Charters
Fancy a day out with a difference?

Day Sailing

Exploring the islands a day at a time


If you want to a special day out to your land based holiday then why not go exploring the local islands, with a day sailing adventure on one of our yachts.

Day Charters can be for a single day or for two/three days to go further afield, returning to base each evening or staying on board the boat. We have a flexible approach to your requirements and our experienced skippers will tailor the day to your crew. Whether you explore the coves, “learn the ropes” or simply have a relaxing day, we will have something to offer you.

Although we find most people generally are not experienced on boats or the area and therefore require a skipper, we do of course welcome you to take one of our yachts for a day sail charter upon production of a valid sailing licence, with handover and insurance conditions.

Itinerary for the Day

The Ionian is home to endless beautiful scenery, world famous blue flag beaches, secluded bays and bustling ports, and all within easy reach of our base, making a private day charter ideal. Typically you can easily get to Meganisi island with it’s pretty little Vathi harbour and small popular bays, the world famous island of Scorpios (once owned by Aristotle Onassis), even to the island of Kastos, some of the mainland bays and beaches which are not easily accessible by vehicle, small coves for private swims abound…… and to many others to mention! There is no fixed itinerary.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to explore what the Ionian has to offer that cannot always be found from the land.

Your skipper will enable you do as little or as much as you’d like…

About

Our Day Charters start from 0900 returning around 1800. A typical day charter includes anchoring off for a refreshing swim and a snorkel, a visit to a neighbouring island for lunch, and as much or as little sailing as you would like. All of our skippers have great knowledge of the area and can suggest the ideal trips tailored to you, making it a hassle free experience. Alternatively you can choose exactly where you wish to visit. We are happy to do some informal training and give you the opportunity to sail the boat if you wish. The possibilities in a day are endless!
