Discover Greece by boat

Greece, a land of ancient myths, stunning landscapes, and crystalline waters, is a paradise for boat enthusiasts. In the southeastern part of Europe, Greece is known for its rich history, fascinating culture, and numerous islands scattered across the Aegean and Ionian Seas. With over 6,000 islands and islets, Greece offers endless sailing opportunities, making it a dream destination for boat lovers.

Renting a boat in Greece opens up a world of exploration and adventure. Whether you're a seasoned sailor or a first-time boater, Greece offers diverse sailing experiences suitable for everyone. By renting a boat, you can access hidden coves, secluded beaches, and picturesque villages often unreachable by land. It allows you to immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the Greek islands and coastlines, allowing you to create your itinerary and sail at your own pace.

Sailing in Greece is an unforgettable experience. The tranquil waters, steady winds, and well-established routes ensure a smooth and enjoyable sailing trip. The Meltemi wind, a seasonal northerly wind, is especially favourable for sailing in the Aegean, providing an excellent opportunity for exciting sailing adventures. Rent a boat in Kos or rent a boat in Lefkada to sail among the charming Dodecanese Islands. For those seeking a more relaxed journey, the Ionian Sea offers calm waters, gentle breezes, and lush green landscapes. For instance, boat rental in Kefalonia, boat rental in Mykonosboat rental in Corfu are the perfect opportunity to have a relaxing sailing experience while exploring the beautiful Ionian Islands.

Let’s not forget that apart from the many beguiling islands, the Greek mainland is also full of astonishing destinations. Rent a boat to sail along the Greek coastline and discover all the extraordinary places and landscapes created by the union of the land and sea. Vourvourou boat rental, for example, is a very good choice for exploring the majestic coastline of northern Greece as well as the islands of the Eastern Aegean Sea.

What type of boat is best for Greece?

When choosing the suitable vessel for your yacht charter in Greece, think about the time you’ll spend on board. RIBS and motorboats are good choices for a few days, and you can rent them by the day. For a more extended charter of a week or more, you should consider a catamaran or a yacht, where you’ll have all the necessary amenities to make your stay more comfortable. A sailboat is the best option if you’re keen on a more traditional sailing experience. However, they aren’t recommended for inexperienced sailors or people prone to seasickness, as they can be unstable. Whichever vessel you choose, you will have the holiday of your dreams in Greece!

When is the best time to go to Greece?

The best time to charter a boat in Greece depends on your preferences and your desired sailing experience. Greece has a mainly Mediterranean climate. This means that the summers are usually hot and dry, and winters can be mild, cool and wet. Depending on where you want to sail when you rent a boat in Greece, the temperatures can be slightly different, but they all follow a similar pattern over the course of the year. The high season, from June to August, offers warm weather, clear skies, and steady winds, making it ideal for smooth sailing. However, this period can be crowded with tourists.

May and September shoulder seasons offer pleasant weather, fewer crowds, and more affordable prices. If you want to experience traditional Greek festivals and cultural events, consider visiting during Easter, which is a significant celebration in Greece. The high season (June to August) attracts more tourists and may result in higher prices for accommodations and boat rentals. The low season (October to April) offers a more tranquil experience and potential cost savings.

We sailed to Egine (main marina), Poros (main marina), Hydra (Nikolaos) = an amazing cruise of one week :) Poros is well protected from N winds. It is a wonderful place to visit and there are very nice restaurants. I recommend. We didn't spend a lot of time in Athens. Maybe next time!
