Saronic cabin charter

I'm really sorry but....

Sorry, this cruise is no longer operating. However, the Peloponnese cabin charters cover similar ground. I also offer lots more cabin charters. Follow these links for more routes:

The Saronic and Argolic Gulfs are Greece’s little secret. Just a short ferry ride from Athens this is a popular destination for Greeks but less know to international tourists.

Cruising from Poros under the care of a professional skipper, you’ll visit villages and small towns not found by the masses but with plenty to see and do. Cruises run weekly starting Saturdays. The itinerary is not fixed but that below is typical.

For more about the Saronic, see Sailing the Saronic. You can see pictures in the Saronic gallery.

    • Ermioni This bustling town, built on a peninsula, seems to be a latecomer to tourism. The north side of the peninsula, known as Limania, provides the harbour and all the facilities you would expect of a small town, including chemists, excellent bakeries, banks with ATM’s and various general stores. There’s even a small hypermarket within walking ... Read more

    • Tiros A sleepy village that stretches about a mile along the seafront of the large bay. In high season, it is a popular destination for Europeans, but even then, with the yacht moorings right at the south end of the bay, you’re unlikely to be disturbed.

    • Nafplion / Navplion & Mycenae Nafplion, at the head of the Argolic Gulf, was previously the capital of Greece. The walled city had spells of Venetian and Turkish occupation, both of whom left their mark in the elegang architecture that remains today. The Palamidi fortifications also remain, ringing the town and offering great views for those who can manage the ... Read more

    • Hydra Hydra is a must see destination for any Saronic Cruise. The former artists colony still relies on donkeys to transport everything from food to fridges along the cobbled streets, the only mechanised transport being a couple of dust carts. The bustling harbour is ringed with restaurants and gift shops selling everything from tacky souvenirs to highly priced designer attire ... Read more
