Greek islands sailing tours are the perfect way to see some of this country’s most spectacular sights while still finding plenty of time to relax.

Exploring the Greek island - The ultimate relaxing holiday
No experience required

Yacht getaways are not just for seasoned sailors. If you want to get involved, you skipper will be only too happy to show you the ropes and let you take a turn at the wheel. You can learn how to judge wind speeds and pick up some sailing basics in a real-life holiday adventure. But if you’d rather just take it easy on the boat while somebody else does the hard work, that’s fine too.

The ultimate freedom

With a sailing holiday you can experience a feeling of holiday liberty unlike any other. No need to be tied to rigid tour schedules or defined mealtimes, you can do what you like, when you like. There are plenty of Greek island sailing tours to choose from that cover all the main attractions, but if you have a particular destination in mind, a bespoke itinerary could be just what you are looking for. If you find yourself having a brilliant time in one particular place, stay a little longer.

You don’t need to be an experienced sailor to enjoy a holiday at sea. With a skippered sailing break you can join in as much or as little as you would like. With the ocean as your playground, you can enjoy the ultimate in flexibility and freedom.
