Odyssey Sailing is a family run yacht charter agency based in Volos*, an important commercial city in central mainland Greece, enclosed by the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Volos (Pagasitikos) and close to the Sporades islands (Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and the smaller islands of the national marine park), the Pelion peninsula and the island of Evia. The area was made famous by the film musical Mamma Mia, filmed in these parts. Now with regular flights from many European cities direct to Volos airport, and an increasing number of idyllic anchorages and tranquil bays, more and more people are discovering this relatively unspoilt and delightful sailing area. For those flying via Athens, Thessaloniki or Skiathos we can arrange direct transfers to the port.
We were among the first yacht owners to offer professional charter yachts from Volos, back in the early ‘90s. Odyssey Sailing opened in 2001 and is licensed and bonded by EOT: The Greek Ministry of Tourism, and we are a member of the Hellenic Yacht Brokers Association (HYBA.gr). As yacht brokers, we work directly with individual yacht owners who meet our high standards for quality and reliability. All yachts are individually inspected, maintained and licensed as professional charter yachts. As boat owners ourselves we know what makes a quality yacht and what is needed for a superb holiday. We have always aimed to provide our guests with a personal service that ensures memorable sailing holidays.
We love to include your thoughts, comments, and photographs on our guests` album and feedback pages. The Greeks have a reputation for good hospitality, that we have to live up to.
