A short guide to family life afloat

Cruising is for everybody, for kids or even for old people. A family sailing adventure with kids is a great way to travel because this type of vacation gives great flexibility, adjusted in your family needs. So we can plan a very child – friendly itinerary, with small routes in protected waters easily accessible by an organized town with all the services that you might need

Parents should follow some basic rules during their Greek family sailing vacation tour in order to be sure about their children’s safety : – children should wear always life jacket on board. – never leave children without adults supervision around the boat or into water. – teach them to be careful with electric appliances in the boat. – use protecting lifeline netting around the boat if babies are in the boat.
The crew and the skipper always takes care to supply the boat with a medical – first aid course made for sailors. Safety and security on board is an issue that the captain of the boat takes serious so all skippers have knowledge of first – aid if there is an emergency case. Also in all islands there is a doctor, a medical center and a pharmacy store to help the sailors.
Children on boat can swim into the most blue and crystal water in the middle of the sea or can just play their favor board game, electronic game, they can enjoy a movie, surf in the net or meet the new islands and participate in the activities that any place offers (like hiking, water sports, see sighting etc.)
Our experienced skipper and crew would take you in protected waters or they change the route in order to ensure that you will avoid sea sickness or a dangerous or not so pleasant trip.Thats why Cyclades is an ideal destination for beginners and families
Generally you won’t need all that stuff (seats, beds) because you will discover a more simple and natural way of life on deck with your baby that will make stronger your bond with your child. Use a pouch to carry your baby and spend more time into water. Some things that are absolutely necessary like baby nappies you should bring them with you.
There is a big variety of baby food and milk in Greek market, although in the small Greek islands it is not certain that you could find anything you wish.
Greek islands are an ideal destination for children of any age. The route can be planned for little kids or for teens. In any case can offer a calm and safe cruise or an interesting, adventuring, and amusing experience.

We came to the Greek islands as first-time visitors and first-time sailors and had no idea what to expect.

With a young family, we were nervous but as soon as we met captain Antonis our fears were allayed and the best holiday we have ever had began.

We loved the sailing trip, the secluded spots we were taken to the swim and snorkel, the unique, traditional towns on the islands, and the raw exposure to the Greek island culture.

Thank you, Antonis for understanding our needs and creating an unforgettable experience for our whole family.
