Sail to the bays of Volos and Sporades the Northern Sporades.
Think of Greece! A country with almost 14.000 kilometers of coastline and more than 3.000 islands and islets, offers the ideal conditions for sailing. The mild and gradual changes in temperature in combination with the stable and predictable winds, the short distances between the islands, the innumerable unexplored gulfs, the picturesque islands and the taverns by the sea, the possibilities for fishing, the brilliant colors on the seabed, are some of the features that compose the most dreamlike sailing holidays.
Many destinations to visit and routes to sail,will be the prize for your trip.The North Sporades islands are among the most beautiful sailing destinations in Greece just a few nautical miles from the peninsula of Pelion.You will discover the virgin beaches, gulfs and coves with turquoise waters. Not rare dolphins swim beside you. There are plenty of islands to visit such as the main islands Skopelos, Skiathos, Alonnisos and the smaller islands of Pelagos or Kyra Panagia, and Peristera, Skantzoura, Gioura, Piperi, Psathoura that have no inhabitants. There are plenty of safe and organized ports, isolated but safe little gulfs suitable to stay overnight.
The mild winds between May and October, the very good weather conditions and the calm waters of the Pagasetic Gulf, ideal for relaxed sailin, offer the opportunity for sailing both to experienced sailors, but also to visitors with no previous experience.
We start our cruise to Pagasetic Gulf and North Sporades from the port of Volos, 35 kilometers from the airport of N. Anchialos, 330km from the airport of Athens, 230 km from that of Thessaloniki and finally Skiathos’ airport. By train, bus or taxi from Athens or Thessaloniki and by ferry or hydrofoil from Skiathos to Volos. Our company can arrange the airport transfers with the best offered prices and special discounts.

What an amazing experience for 2 weeks in Sporades Islands and Pagasetic Gulf.
From Volos harbor to Pagasetic Gulf around, Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonnisos and the Marine Park. Within 60 minutes of leaving the harbour Captain Costas spotted Dolphins, he brought in the sails and slowed down the yacht to allow them to play around the boat and capture them in their natural environment.
We sailed several times to small islands anchoring up to swim and snorkel in the beautiful turquoise clear water, and getting to those unspoilt areas only a boat can get to. There were nine passengers on board, and 3 crew, Costas and his wife Maria and their lovely helpful hand Niki, giving us plenty of room to move around or sit on deck.
Maria and Niki produced a splendid homemade lunch with wine and beer, delicious!
We can’t recommend this experience highly enough, can’t wait to go back and do it again. Thank you for your proposal to sailing to the islands …..
Proposal for 14 days holiday program.
Proposal for 8 days holiday program.
