From the rugged beauty of the Cyclades to the rich history of the Saronics, our tailored sailing itineraries promise an unforgettable experience. So whether you want to spend more time ashore exploring ancient ruins, discovering hidden swimming spots, or striking a perfect balance of both, our Greece catamaran charter holidays have something for everyone.

Saronic Island Greece Catamaran Charter Holidays

Tucked south of Athens in the shelter of the Saronic Gulf, the Saronic Islands are well known for their ancient ruins, sandy beaches, and clear blue waters. Our Greece catamaran charter holidays focus on a mixture of inhabited and uninhabited islands that make up the Saronic, with a few mainland harbours thrown into the mix, too. This escape from the tourist rush and bigger cruise boats offers a variety of uninhabited islands to explore alongside the four main populated islands – Salamis, Aegina, Agistri, and Poros. The Saronic showpiece undoubtedly has to be Hydra, known as the jewel of the Saronic. Hydra has no car traffic, so donkeys are the best way to get around! A must-visit is the UNESCO heritage site of the ancient theatre of Epidaurus, one of the best preserved in Greece.

From afternoon anchorages on remote islands lined with crystal coves to the very best, tried and tested tavernas on the main islands, there won’t be time to see it all, and you’ll soon be longing to return before you’ve even stepped foot off the boat. Read our guide to the Saronic Islands here >

Cyclades Island Greece Catamaran Charter Holidays

Dotted south of mainland Greece, sheltered in the Aegean Sea, the Cyclades consist of around 220 inhabited and uninhabited islands. Our Greece catamaran charter holidays concentrate on the Lesser Cyclades, often called the pearl of the Cyclades, away from the tourist crowds. 

Here, it’s all about switching off and adapting to island time. Snorkel in bays and caves, wander local villages, and enjoy traditional Greek tavernas, of which the skippers know the very best.

A highlight of any Greece catamaran holiday is undoubtedly the dramatic mountain island of Amorgos, home to a breathtaking monastery carved into the rock. Here, the monks are waiting for you at the top with delicious pelmeni (spiced “baked” raki) and loukoumi after your stair climb. On the way back to Naxos, Paros (with its quieter sister Antiparos) offers guests a chance to visit and feel the “real Greece” with its relaxed local atmosphere. Read our full guide to the Cyclades islands here >
