Greece is one of the new horizons in Mediterranean yachting. These ancient centers of civilization offer astounding blends of archaeological sites, historical architecture, traditional cuisine, windswept beaches, and shopping-filled ports.

When to go

April to October

High season

July - August

Begin in Athens and cruise among the Saronic Gulf islands to the picturesque harbor of Hydra, where mules and donkeys are the only legal form of transportation up the spectacularly steep cliffs. Otherwise, begin within the famous walled city on Rhodes, in Greece’s Dodecanese chain, which also includes the fairy-tale island of Symi and its Monastery of the Archangel Michael, the patron saint of mariners. Leave a gift, as other yachtsmen do, in pursuit of fair seas.
