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.

If you want to relax and have a well organised, cared for tour with 2 people that will show you, with passion and hospitality the coast of Athens? Look no further. We had a VERY pleasant memorable trip. Unfortunately it was ‘only’ 5 hours ;-). But a well spend 5 hours.

This was AMAZING!! Our crew was so helpful and welcoming during the trip and the swimming and food was some of the best we had in Greece. When we were booking, we were going through a lot of different options and this one stood out for the timing (morning/early afternoon) and length (half day) and it was perfect for us as it let us have a good morning then also have an evening in the city.

A super cool trip, we would come back anytime! We were warmly welcomed on board, where there was a short briefing on the boat and how to behave on board. Then we sailed about 50 minutes to the 1st stop, where you could snorkel, swim,... (stay about 35 minutes) We then sailed to the 2nd stop, where you could snorkel, swim again in the water... Unfortunately, that was "Underwater World" not very busy at both stops. A very delicious lunch was cooked during the trip! All drinks, ie soft drinks, wine and beer were all included in the price, so you could drink as much as you wanted. The small group of 9 people was very positive, so there was enough space on board. All in all a clear booking recommendation!
