This Greek islands generally have a "Dry Mediterranean" climate, which makes them nearly perfect for chartering during the non-winter months. The weather in the islands is almost always sunny and dry during the summer, with the temperature hot during the day and pleasantly warm at night. Winters are chilly and wet and therefore make chartering risky.
The Etesian winds generally blow from May to October, but can be quite strong in July and August, particularly in the Cyclades islands. When the winds are strong, itineraries can be interrupted and transit hazardous. Please read the information about wind in each of the areas above and discuss your itinerary with one of our experts when booking your Greece charter.
Greek cuisine is simple yet delicious. During your sailing vacation you will come across the freshest ingredients, the best olive oil in the world and a growing variety of excellent locally produced wines.
Local specialties vary from region to region, but the most popular ones are tzatziki, fresh octopus, fresh grilled fish, moussaka, and fresh olives. And of course, no one should leave this country without having had a souvlaki (maybe with a glass of Ouzo) right before going to bed, after a having enjoyed the nightlife in the Greek Islands!
We can provide you with hotel bookings and restaurant reservations upon request.
Mykonos is one of the oldest diving destinations in Greece. Organized diving centers operate on the island with many years of experience and modern equipment. They provide a series of programs for beginners and advanced divers. The best month for diving in Mykonos is September due to the suitable water temperature and the high visibility found at the bottom of the sea.
The rocky coast of Pano Koufonisi but also Kato Koufonisi is ideal for diving. The deep sea at Koufonisi is captivating and friendly and as we approach Kero it becomes fascinating. It is an ideal diving site which will reward its visitors.
Diving in Naxos takes place at the impressive shipwreck, near Amarides, as well as other points on the island.
