Experience a unique sailing adventure around the islands of the Dodecanese. Sail towards remote bays, swim in turquoise waters and apocalyptic caves, get to meet the famous sponge divers... let us show you a different Greece!
Here is a sample of what you will experience while sailing with us in the Dodecanese...
DAY 1: Meeting at the main port of Naxos. Briefing and arrangement of provisions. Naxos is the biggest and richest island of the Cyclades and you can find a wide range of local biological products in its market. After watching the sunset from the Apollo temple, we will take a walk through the narrow alleys of the old town to our favourite tavern where you can sample the local delicacies.
DAY 2: We sail towards the unspoilt and chilled island of Donousa. We stop for a swim at the turquoise waters of the deserted bay of Livadi and then continue to the bay of Kalotaritisa where we will spend the night. Our reward after a day's sailing will be to taste the home made food of a local family that have transformed the yard of their house into a tavern.
DAY 3: In the morning we'll set sails towards the island of the Apocalypse, Patmos. We'll stop for a swim and lunch at one of the island's solitary coves. Everyone knows of the Book of Apocalypse but not everyone is aware that it was written in Patmos when St John was sent there in exile. History reveals its secrets while walking through the little narrow alleys inside the Middle Age castle.
DAY 4: Today's next stop will be the stunning island of Arki. It's very hard to find words to describe its amazing beaches and waters. What used to be a hang out for pirates, today it is only a small community of 40 permanent inhabitants. We recommend to watch the sunset from the highest tip of the island. At night we'll stay on the anchor at one of its deserted bays and have a barbecue on the beach!
DAY 5: Sailors usually stop at Marathi to spend the night and eat at the outstanding tavern of the "Pirate" Michalis, which is only accessible by boat. If he is in the mood, you'll experience lots of Greek music, singing and dancing. This is a really isolated place but the warmth of its 8 inhabitants won't let you feel lonely.
DAY 6: We'll enjoy a full day sailing towards the island of Kalymnos, famous for its sponge divers. Kousto used to study the local divers in order to understand decompression sickness. We'll spend the night at the fjord of Vathy known for its caves from pre-cycladic period. We'll visit a cave accessible by sea and observe the numerous stallaktites in its chambers. At night we'll visit one of the best fish taverns of the island!
DAY 7: This is our last day and we'll make the most of it. We'll sail towards our final destination, the port of Kos. It's time for us to relax... lets have a natural "jakuzzi" under the star-filled sky in the island's hot-springs and then taste Mama's cooking!
