Cabin charter in the Ionian
Set sail from Preveza and explore the beautiful islands of Corfu, Paxos, Meganisi, Ithaca and Kefalonia amongst others. Enjoy a swim and lunch in a choice of tranquil bays and evenings exploring before dining in a pretty harbouside taverna. Off the water, explore historic towns, Venetian castles, Byzantine churches and ancient ruins, or simply enjoy one of the most scenic and verdant islands of Greece.
50 foot sailing yachts
Our comfortable and well appointed yachts are ideal for your Ionian sailing adventure, with 4 double cabins, all with en-suite facilities. A maximum of eight guests are on board, together with an experienced, professional crew to look after you. Breakfast and a light lunch is included, to be enjoyed ‘al fresco’ whilst anchored in an idyllic bay. Enjoy a refreshing swim before or after lunch, it’s up to you to decide.
Discover the Greek islands by sea
There is nothing better after a day of great sailing, swimming and snorkelling than to relax on deck and enjoy a sun-downer with your fellow sailors, before exploring each new island and harbour. We aim to arrive into harbour in the early afternoon as the towns and villages we visit are well worth exploring, with each having their own character and fascinating history with lots to see. If you are a foodie, this is a great part of Greece, with each island having their own local delicacies to try.
Boats depart every week from Preveza between May and October, and the route alternates every second week so if you come on a 2-week cruise you will visit different locations.
Routes may be adjusted according to the prevailing weather conditions. Embarkation is from 3pm every Sunday and disembarkation is after breakfast the following Sunday.
