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.

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.

My three girlfriends and I (ages 19-21) went on this boat tour for our last day on Athens and we LOVED it. It was so relaxing and the boat was very nice and had a comfy area for us to rest and tan. They happened to extend our specific trip to a 10 hr excursion for no extra charge which was so nice. The only reason it gets 4 stars in because the food provided on board was not very good (just some bread with canned tuna and tomato) so maybe bring your own snacks. Also if you are going in the spring I recommend a jacket for the end of the trip because it gets a bit chilly on the boat. Overall though the crew was kind and the experience was worth the money.

This was the best decision to do in Athens! Not only were Mariana and Petros the best crew, they were extremely helpful, friendly and entertaining. The food they provided was the perfect snack for the most beautiful view. We had a smooth ride the whole way and everyone had a smile on their faces. This was our favorite part of our trip and highly recommend it to everyone !
