Where to hire a yacht in Greece?

Here are some of our favourite Greek yacht charter destinations:

  • Boat Hire in Athens: One of the oldest cities in the world, Athens is a must during your stay in Greece. Here you can see the famous Parthenon, the remains of the ancient Agora, the famous Port of Piraeus and the Acropolis of Athens, a place at the centre of much Greek mythology, which is located in the heart of the city.
  • Boat Hire in Mykonos: This famous island is one of the most visited in Greece. Its Mediterranean climate is ideal for enjoying the beaches of Super Paradise, Paranga Beach or Paradise Beach. Or, you can stroll along the charming Little Venice, located near the port.
  • Boat Hire in Santorini: The archipelago of Santorini is one of the most atypical of the country with its picturesque villages full of white walls that stretch over the entire cliff and offer magnificent views. You can also visit the ruins of the ancient cities of Thera and Akrotiri. The volcano of Santorini will give a volcanic touch to your excursion to the Hellenic lands.
  • Boat Hire in Corfu: This jewel in the Ionian Sea has an incomparable charm. A source of inspiration for artists, the Venetian influence is evidence in the architecture. You can stroll through its cobbled streets and book a boat to admire the beauty of Corfu from the ocean.
  • Boat Hire in Milos: Situated in the Aegean Sea, the island of Milos is notably the place where the famous statue of the Venus de Milo was found. You can also book your Greek yacht hire here to explore the entire Cyclades archipelago.
  • Boat Hire in Rhodes: This Greek island, situated between the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas, is a popular tourist destination. You can visit Rhodes, an ancient medieval city. At the entrance to its port was once the majestic Colossus of Rhodes, a gigantic statue (over 30 meters high!) of the Greek sun god Helios, which is considered one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Your yacht charter in Greece is also an excellent and unique opportunity to go on an epic island-hopping adventure while enjoying maximum comfort on board. Some of the island groups you can visit during your Greek yacht charter include:

  • The Ionian Islands
  • The Cyclades
  • The Sporades
  • The Dodecanese
  • The North Aegean Islands
  • The Saronic Islands

Which harbours should you dock at during a Greek yacht charter?

There are a plethora of well-equipped harbours to stop off at when you charter a yacht in Greece. Some of the best include:

  • Athens Marin
  • Vathi Marina
  • Fiskardo Marina
  • Rhodes Marina
  • Gouvia Marine
  • Olympic Marina
  • Mikonos New Port
  • Kos Marina
  • Lefkas Marina
  • Port Zakynthos
  • Sani Marina
  • Agios Nikolaos
  • Odyseas Marina

What are the most popular islands to visit during your Greek yacht charter?

There are so many islands surrounding Greece, that coming up with a short itinerary for your boat hire can be difficult. Each of the islands has something special to offer, meaning that you should base your itinerary on what sort of holiday you’re looking for.

For a trip where you can admire sensations sunsets and an impressive underwater volcano, you should visit Santorini. This is one of the most romantic Greek islands on account of the spectacular views, meaning that it is sometimes referred to as the honeymoon capital of the Mediterranean. Couples looking for a romantic getaway should definitely consider visiting Santorini.

On the other hand, Crete is the best place to go if you really want to immerse yourself in the Ancient Greek culture. To see some authentic artefacts, you should be sure to check out the Archaeology Museum of Heraklion, which is currently home to many of the finds from the excavations at Knossos. Knossos was at the heart of the Minoan civilisation and these excavations are among the most famous and significant in Greece. If you love hiking and sunbathing on secluded coves, Crete will also be a hit, with some of the best beaches being Preveli, Potamos, and Elafonissi.

For the best beaches in the Mediterranean, Zakynthos should be your destination. Some of the beaches, including Shipwreck beach, are only accessible by boat, meaning that it is a great place to avoid the crowds, in spite of its popularity. It is named after the shipwreck that lies in its centre and creates great photo opportunities for your instagram.

If you’re a bit of a party animal, head on over to Mykonos. While there is still plenty to see here in terms of natural beauty, Mykonos is known mostly for being full of beach clubs with lively dance music playing throughout most of the day. 

Discovering Greek Culture & Food

80% of Greece is made up of mountains and high reliefs such as Mount Olympus. As you venture through the streets of Athens, the capital, you can taste the delicious Moussaka, Scordalia, Dolmades and the local Tzatziki and then finish your meal with some Baklavas. Traditional Greek gastronomy also includes two typical drinks such as Retsina, a drink made from pine nuts, and Ouzo, an alcoholic drink made from aniseed. Greece, a country of paradoxes, a land of democracy, anarchy and tragedy, will let you appreciate its great cultural background, its history and its incomparable heritage.

Proud guardians of tradition, the Greeks have kept Dionysus' taste for celebration in an environment of relaxation and pleasure. Thus, evenings under the stars and good dinners are to be expected during your stay, ashore or on board a sailboat.

When is the best time to set sail on your Greek yacht charter?

Most people prefer to set sail on a Greek yacht charter in July and August on account of the ideal water and air temperatures. However, the Meltemi winds are also strongest in these months and can increase the risk of seasickness. These winds also have a tendency to be unpredictable, making a skipper necessary as they will be able to pull into a sheltered bay if the winds pick up too much, without any trouble. If you’re not a fan of the heat, though, we would recommend sailing during May and September. During these months, not only will you avoid the worst of the summer heat, but you will also manage to avoid the crowds of tourists.

Which type of boat is best for Greece?

This really depends on the type of trip you’re after but, generally speaking, you should hire a motorboat or a RIB for shorter trips when you want to cover a lot of ground, and a catamaran or yacht for longer, more relaxing trips, when comfort is the priority.

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!
