The Greek islands are grouped into the following clusters: the Argo-Saronic Islands; the Dodecanese; the North Aegean islands; the Sporades and the famous Cyclades-Kikládhes-, a large but dense collection of islands and islets occupying the central part of the Aegean Sea.
The beautiful Cyclades islands form a circle around the sacred island of Delos where – according to Greek mythology – Poseidon, God of the sea, furious at the Cyclades nymphs turned them into islands!
The Cyclades island group is a perfect choice for your inter-island private expedition with a skippered sailboat charter in Greece because it is an astounding combination of lifestyle, culture, history, cuisine, and a natural beauty to compete any of the world’s dreamy island escapes.

Sailing the Greek islands reviews
Our sail through the Cyclades with Greek Water Yachts was perfection from beginning to end and I cannot recommend them highly enough. A few reasons why:
– throughout the planning process, Apostolos promptly answered all of my emails and my many questions so I felt at ease navigating a new adventure.
– our captain, Antonios, put us at ease from the first moment we stepped on the boat and became a good friend and expert guide for our week-long sail.
– the boat was in wonderful condition and exactly as expected.
– we charted our itinerary with the captain, ensuring we felt in control at all times. He expertly explained the pros and cons of suggested routes and then left the decision to us.
– Antonios knows all the special, local places to go and instinctively knew what we’d like, how much privacy we needed, and how to ensure our trip fit our needs.
I can’t say enough good things about the Greek Water Yachts experience.
If you decompose Greece, in the end, you will find yourself with an
and a boat,
which means: with those you can compose it again.
