Discover the islands of the Ionian Sea sailing from Corfu onboard luxury boat Chronos.
Join Chronos Corfu as she sails you away from the iconic tourist hustle and bustle of this Greek island and shows you a side to island life that remains seemingly untouched. Discover the neighbouring islands of Paxos & Antipaxos, Lefkada and Ithaca nestled into the Ionian Sea.
Relax in tranquil anchorages, explore sandy coves and soak up the Ionian sunshine whilst sailing in luxury and comfort. Cypress trees dot the steep cliffs of these coasts with the scent of sweet pine drifting across the cobalt blue water. Hear nothing but the call of the birdlife and waves breaking softly as you dive into a snorkellers paradise.
Sail South to explore the lesser trodden gems of the Corfu coastline before heading for the island cluster of Paxi. Paxi is made up of the largest island of Paxos and the smaller, Antipaxos famous for its wine and two of the finest sand beaches in the Ionian Sea.
All the islands, along with Ithaca and Lefkada, still retain the Grecian charm with travellers only accessing the island by water, it has stopped the main harbour towns becoming overdeveloped by the tourist trade. With delightful harbour villages filled with traditional tavernas on the East sides of the islands, the West coasts have been left untouched. Centuries-old olive groves among rolling hills and unspoilt coves framed by sheer limestone cliffs provide the perfect anchorages for Chronos and her guests to explore.
Chronos offers daily cabin service, a rich breakfast buffet, a light 2-course lunch at noon, coffee, tea and cake in the afternoon, and a 3-course dinner in the evening. Upon arrival, you will receive a welcome drink and on the last evening, the Captain’s Dinner will be served. One evening a week, all guests eat at their own expense on land to get to know the local cuisine.
With Chronos as your base, great food included and some beautiful bucket list locations; this is a holiday experience of a lifetime and one not to be missed!
*Please note that an exact itinerary cannot be guaranteed due to the changing winds and tides but rest assured Chronos will show you the true magic of Corfu.

Guest berths: 26 Rig: Bermudan Ketch
Built and registered in Bodrum, Turkey but spending her days sailing the Mediterranean and Caribbean, Chronos was purpose built as a charter vessel in 2013, as a two-masted, 54m staysail ketch.
This beautiful Ketch was designed by Klaus Röder who based his design on a classic yacht whilst keeping up with the modern day ketch; built for performance sailing and guest comfort.
Built with luxury in mind, the outline on deck is of teak and mahogany with plenty of space to sun-bath, read a book and enjoy the views. All the sails are electronically retractable, so no need to learn the ropes here. (The crew are, however, more than happy for guests to get involved with the operating and sailing of Chronos as much as they would like!)
An admiralty ladder provides the perfect place to jump off into the warm Caribbean waters, have a swim and climb back aboard with ease. Chronos also offers her guests the options of using her water skiing, wake-board, tube riding, kneeboard, banana boat, kayak and snorkelling & dive equipment and even a sail dinghy (QubaRS)
The deckhouse offers its very own small bar whilst below decks offers still more space to relax with a saloon with a plasma TV! Her private cabins, offering both queen size beds and single bunks, all have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.
The professional crew consists of the Skipper, first mate, mechanic, bosun, cook and 4 stewards, so you will most certainly be looked after during your time aboard Chronos.
