We spent a delightful week on a Catamaran with Yianni our Captain and Vivi our hostess. Our voyage was made wonderful by the friendly, knowledgeable and willingness of our Captain, and the vivacious personality and outstanding meals prepared by our hostess. We sailed to several breathtaking islands, sometimes staying in port and sometimes staying in a sheltered cove overnight. We swam is secluded coves everyday and ate in excellent local restaurants on each island. The sailing was exquisite and the Captain spent time teaching each of us man the helm. I would love to repeat this vacation but at 76, I feel blessed to have had this experience.

We had a great week sailing around the islands near Athens. We’d never been sailing before and had no real idea what to expect.

However the skipper was very knowledgeable and professional. We had our daughter with us and I felt at all times that our safety was his priority.

We saw some fantastic sights as well as being asked what we wanted to get out of the holiday. I would recommend Greek Seas without hesitation.

We had a group of four from America and sailed the monohull with Yiannis as our captain. The trip was everything that we could have hoped for. The captain spoke near perfect English and is now someone that the entire group calls a friend. We all are already planning another trip with a bigger boat (to fit all of the friends that want to come) to go sail with him and Greek Seas again.

He was extremely patient with us and taught us a ton about sailing! He and his captain friends let us hang out with them on the islands which made us feel like locals. Everyone knew us and we had a great time getting to know him and his friends. We decided to join them for dinner half of the time and for breakfast every day. I felt under the weather one night so I asked him to keep my wife and her friend safe at the bar that night. He went and had fun with them while fending off an aggressive drunk.

The booking process was also a breeze. Austin was extremely responsive and informative.

10 of 10 for this company

Every expectation met and more! What a magical week we had island hopping around the Saronic Islands with Leonidas and Alex. They not only sailed us to each port, they shared the history of each stop, cultures and delicious Greek foods from the region. I honestly couldn't imagine a better way to see the Greek Islands. We all highly recommend Greek Seas Charter Sailing.

We once spent a few days in Athens and took a ferry to a nearby island for a few nights. From there, we were hooked on the Greek Island life - clear water, great food, and tons of sunshine. We were then convinced that an entire trip based on sailing the Greek Isles would be fantastic. But not being in the "yachting" class, where to start? There are a ton of logistics and routes to consider, and we're no experts at it.

Luckily, the Greek Seas folks are experts in doing just this - arranging for a week on the water and taking all of hassles out of setting up and executing a fantastic trip. From the reservation process and tons of questions that Austin handled quickly and efficiently, to the actual boat (RoseMary) with its expert skipper and hostess (Kostas and Mary), they took all of the hassle out of organizing and executing this type of trip and allowed our family to simply enjoy a memorable trip skipping through the Greek Isles.

Kostas is a knowledgeable skipper and was able to take us to plenty of great swimming spots and ports, fitting the trip around our desire to swim and avoid large port crowds. Mary does a great job shopping for all of the necessary provisions and serving simple breakfasts and incredible lunches each day. Most of the lunches took her hours to orchestrate on the tiny boat kitchen, and the results were always incredibly good.

We're experienced travelers and have spent many months in Europe and I can say with confidence that this was one of our best weeks on vacation ever. If you're thinking of a trip like this, you can't go wrong with this crew.
