What you'll do

With few people knowing that just half-hour away from the city center, there is a beautiful coastline with sparkling clear waters waiting to be explored, we thought to take you sailing the Athenian Coast to experience it on your own, departing from Kalamaki Marina every morning& afternoon ! Hop on in one of our traditional boats, meet her experienced crew and join a heart-filling experience, by sailing the Saronic. Enjoy the views from the bowsprit or just sit & relax soaking up some sun ! Explore some hidden coves and drop anchor in beautiful secluded bays with azure colored waters for a swim, using our on board snorkels, flippers and goggles. If swimming is not your thing, then grab a fishing rod and try your luck on fishing! In the mean time you will be served some authentic Greek meze (tapas) and quality Greek wine before making your way back to base for your return. By the end of the trip you'd have experienced Athens by the sea, learn about the historical battles that took place in this area, and learn about the tradition of shipwrights in Greece!

This trip surpassed every expectation I had! Everything from the amazing welcome we got Petros, to the awesome crew that made all of us guests feel literally at home. They took us to a magical location where we had a chance to take a dip followed by a delicious fulfilling lunch. The trip felt very personalized and I met some amazing people during the day trip. Definitely a must when coming to Greece, if you have a short trip and want to get to see beautiful beaches and Greece’s coastline.

Wonderful half day sailing and swimming in magical bays. Hosted Irene was super friendly and made a nice lunch, skipper Christos also friendly and knowledgeable.

Great value way to see the Athenian Riviera and visit a small secluded beach on an island near Piraeus. Unfortunately, when we swam ashore, we were saddened to see a few plastic bottles and pieces of garbage on the sand, so instead of sunbathing, my wife and I spent the hour as a cleanup operation for the sake of future visitors and more importantly the planet. Lunch on the yacht was lovely and there was ample time to swim and jump into the warm ocean. I think the only thing that was missing was maybe some more information about the yacht that we were on and what we were sailing past as we were on the water. Almost like a tour guides commentary on the workings of the yacht and the geography of the port and nearby areas we could see. Great experience overall, highly recommended and great value!

I invited my 9 friends from around the world to join me for my birthday in Athens. I looked for a boat tour for a relaxing moment to be together. I’ve done this many times abroad but this tour was really the best: the catamaran was brand new had two men crew and had the best layout with plenty of areas to relax in or out Of the sun. We had a great lunch cooked by a lovely girl who’s smiling energy made us all comfortable and welcome. They even organised a special birthday cake organised by the captain and herself. It was truly magical and all my guests who are all globetrotters spoke highly about this experience afterwards!!! Please do not look any further it is worth the money!

A fantastic morning on a catamaran. A larger boat than we expected. Very well presented. Lovely crew. Yummy food and enough for everyone. Two different stops which was fun to jump into the beautiful water. Even arranged a gluten free cake for my friends birthday!
