Bareboat & Flotilla Charters/Flotillas

Ionian Flotilla from Kefalonia

The Area

The Kefalonia flotilla starts from the harbour of Aghia Eufimia, an ideal spot from which to explore the southern of the Ionian islands including Zakynthos and Ithaca. Starting further south means you will be ahead of other flotillas, permitting a more adventurous route and exploring destinations not found on other flotilla itineraries.

The Zante route heads south, to Zakynthos town and Aghios Nikolaos. The Kefalonia route takes you on a trip to the north and the west side of the island, exploring Vathi on Ithaca, Fiskardho, Assos to the west before the last day beach party in a beautiful bay.

The weather
The Ionian islands enjoy a wonderful climate, and you can be virtually assured of great weather and warm temperatures during the flotilla season. Winds on the Kefalonia flotilla are moderate, with strengths of force 2-4, occasionally a little more in open water. For those accustomed to the calm waters to the east of Lefkas and Kefalonia, the open waters can often have more of a swell, particularly further south.

Getting there
There are direct flights to the island of Kefalonia from many European locations between May and September. Contact us for a direct quote (ABTA/ATOL) for flights from London or other UK airports. Local transfers can be arranged on request.
