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 isles, 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 mythologyPoseidon, God of the sea, furious at the Cyclades nymphs turned them into islands!

The Cyclades island group is a perfect choice for your island hopping with a skippered sailboat charter in Greece because it is an astounding combination of lifestyle, culture, history, cuisine, and natural beauty to compete any of the world’s dreamy island escapes.




What to expect during a Greek island charter cruise:

That’s why Cyclades Isles are the synonym of Greek Summer Vacation and one of the best places for a private voyage with a sailboat in the world.

That’s why Cyclades is an area that you must explore with manned charter.

That’s why renting a sailboat with skipper from the Isle of Paros is the ideal starting point for your private yacht cruise through the Greek islands.

That’s why a skippered sailing tour is the best way to visit the Greek islands

Sailing the Greek islands reviews

sailing the greek isles 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.

a vineyard

and a boat,

which means: with those you can compose it again.
