Full description
Few people know that just half an hour away from the city center, there is a beautiful coastline with sparkling clear waters waiting to be explored. During this tour, you will sail along the Athenian Coast and experience the beauty for yourself. Hop on a sailboat, meet experienced crew and join a heart-filling experience sailing in the Saronic Gulf. Upon leaving the port, the boat will head towards Vouliagmeni Bay, past the Athenian Riviera, for your first swim stop. Enjoy a quick dip in the clear waters before you continue to your second swim stop located off the coast. There you will be served a selection of Greek appetizers and some local wine or refreshments. Learn the basics of sailing from your skipper or just sit and relax in the sun. Explore some hidden coves and drop an anchor in beautiful secluded bays where you will be able to enjoy a swim using the on-board snorkels, flippers and goggles. If swimming is not your thing, then grab a fishing rod and try your luck with fishing. In the mean time, you will be served some authentic Greek tapas and quality Greek wine before making your way back to base for your return.

Niki and Christoph were amazing and very nice. We met up and they took us aboard the yacht and explained everything we would be doing. We got to cruise around at a comfortable pace and stopped to swim at two places. At the second location, we were served an amazing Greek lunch (Greek salad, cheese danish, drinks, etc.). Overall, would recommend to everyone who wants to experience the ocean off the coast of Athens.

We were greeted and picked up in a friendly manner. The staff was very competent and explained everything we needed. We stopped twice to jump into the water and there was a great meal at the second stop which was prepared by the staff. The food consisted of a Greek salad, feta cheese pastries and bread. Music was played and there were also goggles and swimming suits. It was a pleasure!

Everything was perfect, a warm and cheerful welcome. We walked along the coast and stopped in small coves, taking all the time necessary to enjoy swimming and other pleasures. The 100% Greek on-board meal was homemade by Georgia, a visual and taste treat. I highly recommend this excursion over 5 hours of pure bliss
