Beginning in Athens, this gay sailing trip will take you island hopping around some of the most beautiful parts of Greece. From the gay bars of Plaka to the rich history in Spetses and tiny fishing villages in Kiparissi, this will be the ultimate Greek Adventure.
One of our representatives will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the ship. When you step on board you’ll meet your fellow sailors and get the chance to settle in. We’ll then explore the iconic streets of Athens, and discover the local gay scene in the evening.
On the second day we’ll sail to the scenic bay of Poros. The white village and taverns are quintessentially Greek. This island is home to some great historical sights, including the Clock Tower, Monastery of Zoodochos and the Love Bay.
On the island of Hydra you can explore its celebrated hilltop views – if you like walking. You can also visit the Historical Archive Museum, or just take a walk along the beach.
On the fourth day we’ll sail to Leonido, home to a gorgeous pebble beach and quaint fishing village. We’ll visit the Elonas Monastery and have dinner on the island.
We’ll sail to the town of Monemvasia off the East coast of the Peloponnese. This town has many significant historical sights including Monemvasia Fortress, Agia Sofia Church and the Archaeological Collection Museum. We’ll take a hike down the paths that lead to the ruins of the fortified upper town with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Kiparissi is a small and charming fishing village rarely visited by tourists. The village is surrounded by mountains and you’ll find crystal clear waters by the bay.
On our last full day in Greece we’ll sail to Spetses. This is the birthplace of Bouboulina, the fearless female commander who fought in the Greek War Of Independence. Canons used in the war can still be seen on the promenade; a reminder of Greece’s turbulent past.
This island is full of chic cafes, bars and boutiques. It’s a great place to have a cocktail on a terrace as you look out over the Peloponnese.
After breakfast you’ll be picked up from the ship and driven to the airport after saying goodbye to your fellow sailors. It’ll be time to say farewell, Greece; until next time.
