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.

    This trip was really fun. The weather was perfect and the water was warm. The first spot we went to was really peaceful and the water was clear. When we went to the second spot, the waves were too big so we decided to go back to the first spot where we had an amazing lunch. I would highly recommend this trip.

    Absolutely to be recommended!

    Super friendly team on board and at the reception by the organizer. We had booked the morning tour and could spontaneously stay on board the whole day. Many thanks to the organizer! It was a lot of fun. Also because the fellow travelers were great. The only drawback - unfortunately no wind, but that didn't matter. :)

    I have booked and carried out several activities and tours in and around Athens, but this was by far my favorite. It was incredibly beautiful on the boat, the crew super nice and entertaining and the food delicious! Was worth every single cent, we would be happy to do it again.
