A typical day on board
A typical day onboard Alexandros, starts in the marina
of a little village where you spent the previous night (or anchored
in a remote bay if you decided to stay there!). When you feel like
getting out of bed you help yourself with breakfast on deck which
normally includes freshly baked bread, home-made jam or honey from
the mountains of mainland Greece, coffee, tea, milk and cereal, orange
juice, and of course fresh fruits and yogurt. There, you can take
your time waking up while watching the village life in front of you
and the breathtaking scenery of hills and mountains all around.
Alternatively, you can have breakfast at one of the numerous cafe's
and tavernas that are always situated around the harbor.If you feel
more active, you can go sightseeing, wander around the village and
the surrounding countryside, or just do some shopping.
around 9:30, and after a short discussion over the chart about where
would be nice to go for a swim and where you would like to be for
the next night, we set sail. With the gentle northwesterly breeze
that normally prevails in the Ionian Sea during the summer months,
and which rarely exceeds Force 5, you will have a comfortable sail
to a bay of your choice either on the same island or another one.
After we drop anchor, you can stay onboard, go for a bit of swimming
and snorkeling, or head for the shore.
Around 1 o'clock in the afternoon,
lunch is served at the cockpit.
And of course lunch is accompanied with local
wine or beer and fresh fruit as a desert.
In late afternoon it's a good time to weigh anchor, hoist the sails
again and head for a picturesque little village on another island.
We'll be there around 5 o'clock which will give you plenty of time
to explore the place and experience the local culture. Later you can
head for dinner to one of the tavernas, where you will have the opportunity
to taste the Greek cuisine, famous for its delicious plates. A fascinating
selection of local tavernas is available for you to sample and your crew, with their good knowledge of the area, will suggest some
of the places with the best food.
Every day some time during the evening, we will discuss the options
for the following day. A more detailed plan will then be made about
where to go and what to do. And then you can go for a walk around
the place, taste the local wine, then end up back at the yacht for
a few drinks with your friends or just head for a bar, socialise,
make new friends and even have fun till the sun rises again the next
On the 'Share a yacht' cruises there is a maximum number of 8 guests
on board plus our captain and hostess, and you are most likely to
be sharing the boat with small groups of friends and couples. The
most important thing is that you are going to be on a yacht with like
minded people who want to go off the beaten track, have a little taste
of adventure and meet the locals.
Informal sailing lessons offered free of charge. Scuba diving (for
the day) can be arranged on request with local PADI diving clubs.
