What you'll do

Just the absolute best of Thessaloniki tour, port waterfront on a sailboat You will get a much better idea of the city and why it used and still is the entrance port to the Balkans. Thessaloniki is a city connected with the sea. It has always been since founded, a major port. Most of the city monuments like its trademark White Tower are linked with the sea. Thessaloniki port & waterfront sailboat tour is the best way to tour the city. If there are commercial ships waiting to unload in the port, we always pass by to say hi to the sailors! The Skipper is a local with intimate knowledge of the city and its history. We start from Kalamaria Marina in the east of the city (easily accessible by public transportation bus) and we make a big circle around the city waterline while sailing if possible. Itinerary For 2 hours our trip will take you from Kalamaria marina to: Thessaloniki Sailing yacht club Thessaloniki Concert Hall, Sailing Club of Thessaloniki New waterfront White tower Old town waterfront Aristotelous Square The external old port area and many more seaside monuments and landmarks of Thessaloniki. And of course, we will be sailing around (if the wind is enough and not too much). Anyone who wants can take the wheel and sail the boat after we teach him some basics about steering.

Christophoros

I have spent all my life in the Thessaloniki area, mostly by water, sailing, boating, fishing. For more than 10 years now I offer small group day trips with my sailboat from Sithonia or Kassandra. I love showing the best places in my 2300 years old city from the side of the sea. In 2005 I got my own sailboat, a lovely 3 cabins Jeanneau, "Thetis" and I fall in love with the first look I took at her. Ever since I try to go sailing every day if I can! I love my city and it's center/port waterfront connection with the sea. I would love to show you and explain the history behind the most important landmarks. History is my passion. The sailing is just a bonus. Take a look at my city from an entirely different ankle. Studied to be a civil engineer, become a graphics designer and digital advertiser and a charter skipper instead.
