PrevezaOur meeting point of our amazing journey is Preveza Port.

Preveza to Lefkada (30nm)After our first breakfast on board, we depart for Lefkada island,to discover the most stunning sandy beaches on the west side of the island. After 3 hours of sailing, swimming and snorkeling in these amazing turquoise waters, you will have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming! Departing at around noon, we continue our journey, passing through the floating bridge of Lefkas Town, which connects Lefkada Island with the mainland. We pass by small yet idyllic island of Scorpios that Aristotle Onassis called “paradise on earth” before arriving at Nydri, a bustling & lively port village. This is our port for tonight! Enjoy an afternoon cocktail in one of the many bars along the promenade.
Nydri, Lefkada to Fiskardo, Kefalonia (18nm)Adventure begins today, so get ready for the activities! After breakfast we pick up our bicycles and ride to the breath taking Nydri waterfalls. The route to the waterfalls goes through a wonderful landscape of unspoiled nature, Greek countryside at its best. Bring a towel and a swimsuit along so you can cool off & refresh in natural pools of the waterfall. You deserve it! After this amazing experience we set sail for Fiskardo on the island of Kefalonia, 2.5 hours away. We stay overnight at beautiful and colourful Fiskardo.
Fiskardo, Kefalonia to Kioni, Ithaca (10nm)After waking up and enjoying breakfast at fascinating Fiskardo, the Battery Hiking Trail awaits us. Get on your bike and explore the fascinating terrain of this beautiful island. The longest trail of the Fiskardo hikes connects several villages, and passes through various landscapes, including cypress forests, strawberry tree forests and agricultural fields. It also passes by different historical sites, like the ancient tomb of Throni and the old village of Psilithrias. The best way to combine your favourite activity with a taste of history. This circular path brings us back to the yacht and we depart for Ithaca, 1.5 hours away. Overnight at picturesque Kioni
Kioni, Ithaca to Meganisi (17nm)Mornings on the island of Ulysses are so quiet, that you just want to stay there forever, but our next activity awaits! Today we are fishing in the Greek sea, an exciting, amusing and unforgettable experience. Ithaca provides a huge variety of large and small fish species and they usually take the bait! Trolling, spin fishing and bottom fishing techniques are all available to you and you just might catch a memorable trophy. About 2.5 hours later, satisfied and happy with our catch, we set sail to the island of Meganisi for an overnight stay.
Meganisi to Kastos (15nm)After breakfast, it’s time for our second walking hike. We follow a moderately difficult route on Meganisi island through wild flowers with spectacular beauty and green landscape that will fascinate you. On the top of the hill, at Katomeri village, we’ll meet traditional grandmothers who weave woolen clothes with old wooden tools. Discover how life was in Greece many years ago, as we allow our minds to travel centuries back in time. At noon we board the yacht and set sail to pass between the mainland and the island of Kalamos, where we can smell the pines as they touch the sea surface. We will marvel at the many small white bays and beaches as we sail until afternoon, to arrive at the small island of Kastos, total sailing 2.5 hours. We stay overnight at Kastos
Kastos to Preveza (33nm)Morning time at Kastos is quiet and spectacular and breakfast by the sea is a blessing, therefore it is enjoyed by all of us. This day is devoted to sailing. You will learn to tie a knot, adjust the sails and steer. You are ready to be the skipper, give commands to the crew and set destinations. The winds and the sea at this part of the Ionian Sea are ideal for sailing. After a stop for swimming and snorkeling in the quiet bay of Desimi beach on Lefkas island, we start sailing back to Preveza, total sailing 5 hours.
PrevezaAll good things come to an end, so it is time to say goodbye and highlight the feelings we shared on board, keeping in your heart all the memories and friends you made along the way.
